Now that finals are over, I feel lost...

Postby eriedoctrine » Wed Dec 17, 2014 1:51 pm

Just got done with finals earlier this week. I feel relieved but now I don't know what to do.
Decided to read some E&Es for the classes I'm taking in the spring and just got done with Admin Law last night and am planning on moving on to Fed Tax.
What are you guys possibly doing with so much free time on your hands now? :|

I know the feeling man.
Don't slack, just keep staying put on a solid studying schedule like a well oiled engine.
I'm reading over some supplements for next semester as well, and listening to audio supplements during my drive back home.

Still waiting for some supps to arrive from amazon, so I got bored yesterday and decided to read over Glannon Torts and Civ Pro.

This post can't be serious, right? You're done -- go have fun! You have the rest of your life to work. I seriously wish I can have the feeling of having nothing to do again!

I am watching documentaries on subjects related to the area that I want to practice in, reading leisure books, and reading a case or two just to keep my mind fresh.

And reading magazines at B&N

Definitely do that, especially if your firm has a lower offering rate. When I interned for the DOJ my 1L summer, I made sure to skim through their 800+ pg policies and procedure manual. Really impressed many of the attorneys.

I'd seriously suggest killing yourself. This is not some snarky retort, I mean it.

Kimikho's was merely credited. Sheriff's the model answer.

I do empathize though. Yesterday I finished Black Mirror as I was too hungover to get out of bed except to eat and poop. Today I did laundry, cleaned out my backpack/binder, went to the gym, bought groceries, and got a haircut. Now what?

You feel lost because you're a hollow shell of a human being unable to create meaning without pointless and arbitrary rites of passage like law school.

And I mean until your ass hurts from too much sofa time. If your sofa is even halfway decent, this should at least get you into the weekend when NFL games and then bowl games start. Who cares if it's a 6-6 Northeast Southern Georgia vs a 7-5 Obscure Vine-Covered Univ.?

Wish I saw the original post.

And OP - I'm with you, people on this forum are the absolute worst. Just become one of them, it helps.
