Can't Stop but Want to Stop. Last exam is on Tuesday. Corporations. Feel pretty good on the outlining front and have a good attack for the exam. Now I'm just prewriting answers and waiting until it's finally over.

It's okay, you need some room to catch up.

Alternatively, it's just as good a reason to drink after its over as any.

Yeah, it's pretty different. The model answers are good harvesting ground for rule statements; but you're going to have to sort out stuff that doesn't apply.

Honestly after first quarter we had only taken 2 exams worth 8% of our grade each and we started in October, so while you all were going balls to the wall before anyone knew what exactly a law school test was, we were eased into it.

It's really easy to forget about that now since Spring sucks a fat dick, but I try and remind myself that it has positives too :(

That's true. On the other hand, it also seems sort of like peeling off a band-aid really, really slowly. At least the rest of us just get two doses of that pain (albeit larger ones).
