Sorry I have been absent. I know my teammates need mutual encouragement.

I've been Eric Thomasing through my 8:45 AM to 11 PM days.

Readings. Done.
Outlines. Done.
Hypotheticals. Now. 400 hypotheticals. 70 done. Shit's a fucking cakewalk.

Yet to do:

Practice exams - 4 per class.
Finish updating my 1 page attack outlines.
Continue typing BLL per class.
Review GTM outline. (Kids who requested, it is incoming. I've been on my grind.)
Read Whitebread's book.

???

Profit. CSWS. Cake, baby, cake!

Where are you getting 400 hypos bro?? Are you including short answer and multiple choice hypos?? I have the E&E, Crunch time, and Q&A for each of my classes and the only way I have over 400 hundred hypos is if it includes the short answer ones and the multiple choice. Or do you have some other magical hypo oasis that I do not know about??

Yeah man where are you getting all these hypos? Also, your work ethic is inspiring.

Just finished Conlaw. On to Civ Pro for tomorrow and then on to outlining.

My bad. I meant short answers. 400 short answers. I did not include multiple choice. Still, it's helping immensely.

Get to work kids. We have A's to pull.

You will be the first one in the library. You will be the last one out. And if life does not turn out the way we expected, at least you can look yourself in the mirror knowing you went down guns blazing.

Then when it's all over, and it will be, we will drink. Drink, I say. Drink until we forget that we are in the ninth circle of hell. We will climb our way out. To my fighting bros putting in those 12+ hour days, each key I press into my keyboard is for you. We're in this together.

You will not fucking give up. Struggle baby. Eric Thomas says...

PAIN IS TEMPORARY
IT MAY LAST FOR A MINUTE
OR AN HOUR
OR A DAY
OR EVEN A YEAR
BUT EVENTUALLY IT WILL SUBSIDE
AND SOMETHING ELSE WILL TAKE ITS PLACE.
IF I QUIT, HOWEVER,
IT WILL LAST FOREVER.

THIS THREAD IS A FUCKING INSPIRATION. Whenever I feel like putting that book down, or calling it quits, I flip through a couple pages here and remember my brothas are fighting the same fight, are struggling just as much as me, and I am not going to be the person who quits or the weak link with my comrades!

When you guys say "outlines done" do you mean that you've finished reading for all your classes -- to the end of the semester?

Or done up to now?

I had Torts finished weeks ago, but after hitting proximate cause and Palsgraf, I noticed I didn't REALLY understand anything.

My plan was to do an initial, big, outline for each course. Then cut it all down to an attack outline, synthesizing in the process. I hope I have enough time.

This is my plan as well. I am still trying to get it down to 1-2 page "checklist" outlines

Goodbye and good riddance to LRW!! Now to finish reading for Contracts tomorrow, outline in hopefully 8 days, and then on to Siegel's and the PTs!!

Onward, brothers. Life is not about finding yourself; it is about creating yourself.

Crushed negligence and got halfway through causation. CSWS (except I'm going to bed now.) CSWS resumes tomorrow morning.
