Yeah man... I just internalized that. Holy crap.

I'm usually so burnt out from class during the week that I barely ever do more than 3 hours of work on a weekday (normally I do around 2 hours each weekday).


TBF, I'm a hardcore night owl :lol: Case in point: I went to bed at 8am on Friday.


Brock and I are the late night crew. I enjoy a 3 PM-3 AM schedule, with breaks in between.

I feel like Crim is pretty straightforward but outlining it is a PAIN in the ass.

yall are crazy. no one should panic 4weeks before finals. lying to your classmates--is that really necessary? I guess ive never really been ahead in anything so I have nothing to lie about.

I do all my panicking and then come finals I have become sociopathically resigned and nihilistic, leading to cool head in pressure and success.

My property outline feels useless. Feeling like torts all over again with all the minority rules, case names, etc. which was great in torts because that was all multiple choice but could be the death of me when I have to write essays about laws and shit.

I wouldn't say I feel completely lost, but yeah, 2 weeks ago I felt like it was my best chance for an A, and now I have no idea.

Tell me about it dude. I feel like Property has the same number of rules as all the other classes combined

At least your property professor (well, hopefully, anyway) doesn't ramble on in a very confusing manner about the "normative basis" behind every rule. :|

yup, you keep outlining after you do a practice exam and realize there's a whole chapter of cases you haven't outlined

I've decided that even though I have no idea what he's talking about half the time, it's actually to our benefit since we've covered so much less material than the average property class.

Didn't get as much done as I would have hoped today....

Oh well, will try to get all caught up on Con Law outlining tomorrow afternoon, and then I guess do some supp reading in the evening?
