Nah brahs, this is an opportunity to score some early points. A grade is a grade, fellas. Just because it's worth fewer hours (at my school anyway) doesn't mean it's not time to do wurk.

I agree bro. I'm neglecting everything for this brief over the next week to get it out of the way early. Then I can just polish it while I GRIND my other classes later in the semester.

Oh, and my body is back to it's pre-law school weight...hopefully it stays that way! :D This time, I'm not going to sacrifice my physical (and emotional) health to the altar of CSWS. Balance is so key for killing exams, brahs.

My legal writing instructor said that the deadline for my rough draft is only a soft deadline. Hmmmmmm, looks like I may be pushing it back even more.

Just get it done. We had ours due on Monday. It mad elast weekend a little rough, but it feels great to be done with the bulk of it.

Also, I'm no longer sick! Time to increase the grind (or not) and take advantage of free food opportunities.

I'd say it's more of a prescriptive easement.

I can't speak for Bronck, but I prefer working at home because (A) I'm trying to make me some gains, and the school cafeteria refuses to stock Dymatize pancakes, (B) I'm more comfortable at home, with only a dog and girlfriend in the house and not a bunch of peskies buzzing about, and (C) I can take entertainment breaks as needed. All of these, I suppose, are personal, and I wouldn't argue that there's one right way to work or study.

Mostly B & C for me. My productivity will be no different at the library. Instead, my entertainment breaks will be less entertaining and I will be less comfortable.
