Yikes, I'm sorry. Open or closed book?

Speaking of which, any tips for a closed book Con Law exam? Or is everyone here doing Con in the spring semester too?

I really should have tried harder to figure out what went wrong. Hes an elusive old man. I sent him an email to talk about it. No response. Sent a follow up email. No response.

Ill stalk his office next week and get back to you.

Seems like some dudes might get the wrong idea when seeing that shirt. But maybe that's the point Ms. Curvebuster.

Sorry to hear, Pink. Remember all, your health is more important than the grind.

I've been grinding pretty hard already, thanks to y'all's inspiration. Woke up this morning, though, and....just no.

But, a good breakfast with friends, a brief nap to make up for the midnight oil I've been burning, and a brisk walk, and....

I'M BACK, BABY!!! LET'S DO THIS THING!!! CSWS!!!

Remember, crew, taking time to recharge DOES benefit the grind.

Stay strong brahs. The grind starts naow. Only class today was a BS "express your concerns" where people either asked about being tenured or their friend's lease problem. I disregarded peasantry and acquired another outlined section. Come at me.

Aww, thanks for the love y'all! :D CSWS'ers really look out for their own.

I'm feeling wayyyy better now. At around 10ish last night, I started feeling incredibly nauseous, my heart began palpitating intensely, I was sweating and shaking, etc. Maybe the adverse reaction was the 5 Hour Energy (2nd in 24 hours) interacting in a negative way with my new meds? I've lost a significant amount of weight since the last round of finals, so maybe that made a difference because I took 5 Hour Energies last semester when I was heavier with no severe ill effects. Called the campus EMT, and they whisked me over to the ER, where my heart was monitored. I was there until 5ish in the morning. Thought I was OK upon discharge, but the "turbulence" during the car ride with the campus police back to my apartment almost made me hurl right then and there. :(

Now I'm all good, tho. Not the way I envisioned the commencement of BEAST MODE! :P

Sup bros. My ISP decided to not work the last three days. Normally this would make me more productive, except my brief is due today. Turned it in with 11 pages (max is 15) of arguments a two-year-old could undercut. I'm so ready for spring break. Gonna get my grind on starting Sunday.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, Pink!
