To not want to kill myself during the week with the same readings.

Alternatives to reading torts on a Friday night:

Biking home in a rainstorm on a Friday night and blow drying your torts book

Whoops

Setting your expectations low is a smart strategy. That way when you hit bottom 30% you will be excited. Your excitement will lead to confidence. Confidence has been shown to be self-fulfilling, therefore it will lead to better performance on the final. Better performance on the final will lead to a top 5% class rank. Following this out to its logical end...May I introduce everyone to Chief Justice PeanutsNJam. Boom!

Are you going to make a video of yourself walking out of the exam room happily proclaiming that you are going to go to Disney World?

Dear LRW instructors,

7.5 pages is a perfectly cromulent length for a memo. Pls acknowledge this fact so I don't have to spend another three hours editing this fucker for no reason.

With boredom and indifference,

I'm all for hating on LRW but 7.5 pages strikes me as an odd page count. Are you trying to get it up or shave it down - and to what requirement?

The requirement is 5-7 pages, so I'm trying to shave it down (it was originally 9 pages, and I had already shaved it down from 9 pages to 7 for the first draft). I just want to not look at this anymore, is what I'm saying. :P

Is this a final, graded/credited version? If so, I have no advice. If not, delete every other sentence until it is 7 pages and see what is said about your "edits!" :lol:
