Finished finals. Don't feel great about my run. Worked hard, but had a lot of multiple choice test which really don't cater to my strengths. Hoping for median lol.

Congrats on finishing though. It feels marginally better than not being finished.

Ugh. I'm avoiding the writing section by obsessing over the editing portion, but I def have a gnawing pit in my stomach that's like

"bitch what you doing, do yo work NAO"

Any tips for a 48 hour take home "Intro to Criminal Procedure" exam? Random, I know.

I "wrote" mine on saturday. At 3am.

It's awful. I'm basically starting over from scratch.

every sentence is a struggle

I have to say, I actually kinda sorta enjoy editing. And by enjoy I mean I can spend more than 10 minutes doing it without going off to TLS or vacuum or change the color in my fountain pen or write a review for the place that delivered my lunch or.... I have no idea how I'm going to sit still from 9 to 5 when I start working.
