Law school is pointless bullshit and you'll live to tell the tale no matter how it plays out. Tomorrow and the day after are just more days, just more opportunities for adventures and stories and time with friends and family and exploring and learning and testing yourself.

Just another day, just another week. All this stress and anxiety is artificial. It's all just a silly game.


This helped immensely.

Time to get some sleep, and hope for the best.

Our money’s funny, our change is strange

We playing games where the rules ain’t clearly defined
In this coffee black world, knee deep in the grind
Be a vine in the shade, a salmon in a stream
Try lookin’ for the stars when examining your dreams


Yes, I am procrastinating :lol:

Ks in the bag. Ugh. I feel about as little confidence as I ever have after taking an exam. Probably missed issues, didn't apply law right, whole thing was a rambling mess with no structure besides bolding a few terms. Just ugh across the board. Praying for the curve to save me. It's behind me now. Open book torts on Friday, feel much more confident about that. Gonna get into Hitman Absolution and go get some BBQ and bourbon.

This reminds me of the fact I watched that Sopranos episode literally two days ago. Either way, both are sage advice. So maybe I did bad on a contracts exam? So? I have friends and family, I'm not going to keel over and die because of it. Maybe I'll become a longshoreman, I hear they make a killing.

Felt good about Torts. Sat down for a full-length, 3-hour, uninterrupted practice test. Lo and behold, my answers are still SPS (albeit slightly less stream of consciousness SPS than my first practice questions) and I'm probably fucked in everything. Going to the last available office hours today to see if I can maybe be a little less fucked, but I'm pretty sure I'm overall fucked. Just...just fucked.

Good plan. And in my experience, there was absolutely no correlation for me between how I felt and the grade.

Most of the exam was stuff that wasn't even on the syllabus. Hopefully I'm better at teaching myself stuff than the rest of my section.

Or a 3L when you walk into the exam and ask yourself "wait, what class is this?"

Actually felt pretty good about my final today. Only thing that scares me is that on only one of four essays did I come within spitting distance of the word limit. I felt like I said everything I needed to say though...

Jesus professors put word limits on exams? What a douche move.
