Went hard on my memo. Beast mode on pause until tomorrow, where it will resume with a metric fuckton of readings.

Congrats, mephistopheles!

For any CSWS'ers looking for a jerb, I have PI leads in Boston (Spanish speakers preferred). Don't hesitate to reach out.

Not that I need any more motivation to avoid 5-Hour Energy, but this article is scary :shock: :

Maybe it's time to nag that kid in my section who chugs it on a daily basis?

Back home in Philly for spring break. There is a VERY strong chance that by the end of next Friday, I will no longer be foreveralone.jpg. :oops: :D

Now, back to GRINDing and CSWS'ing so I can eventually get a job and support our little family. :sigh:

That sucks man. Pretty sure OCS would stomp all over you if you reneged on the PI offer.

On the topic of CSWSing: I've successfully read 1 page in 2 days. Someone needs to light a fire under me.

Just go on the CB and renege if need be. It's not the worst thing in the world and a PI org will understand taking paid work.

Haven't used it yet, but about to load it up for the Rape section. Seems like a lot of this section in Kadish is random perspectives, so I want to cut through the BS and find out what's impt.

Just finished my property reading for the week.

I'm not looking at that Outline until outline grinding starts, but it's going to be a life saver when I need to pile names for someone intelligent who said each competing theory in every fucking section.

No, I don't remember what HLA Hart said on pg. 845 about why we punish mistakes of fact.
*Looks at outline*
Nevermind.

Legal writing takes forever but time fucking flies. Encouraging about the real world. Work is awesome when you never have to look at your watch.

Doorkeeper what outline?

Chugging through my Con Law readings. Hoping I can finish my elective readings before dinner as well. That should give me some time tonight to apply to some jobs, and maybe even finish my brief edits.

That way I can free up Monday for beginning Property Supplement Reading / Outlining and more job applications.

You know you've been GRINDing too long when you hear Sisqo's "Thong Song" and the first thing that pops into your head is LetsGoLAW. :lol:

Next week over spring break. That's when I am going to into overdrive, circa 2 months to glory.
