Heard. I spent thirty minutes making sure my string cite was up to snuff - not because I really thought it was wrong, but because I didn't want to create substance.

Having spent time at a small liberal arts college and a large state university, I've encountered theft no matter the setting. I err on the side of caution, especially since the restricted access consists of flashing an ID to an inattentive guard. Did I just invite pilfering attempts through my security description? Uh, I mean, it is like a fortress here. You'll never make it out alive!

I get that. But I'm not packing up my entire backpack when I can see the table from the water fountain.

Significant difference between a 15 minute steamer trip - or even a two minute bathroom break - and a walk to an in-sight water fountain. Library bathrooms should be positioned facing study areas and equipped with two way mirrors. Or, they could allow micturition in the water fountains! :D

Big 1L memo party last night. I'm wondering how many people are showing up for LRW this morning...

Plenty of time! Research today. Rules/outline tomorrow. Two elements Thursday. Two elements Friday. Revise Saturday. Grammar/Punctuation/Citation junk Sunday. Not the most fun way to spend the week, but not the worst either!

I took a page from Jay Bilas and started tweeting law-related rap lines once a day before class. My followers seem to enjoy them much more than any of my previous content. So, basically, I had to go to law school to realize I wasn't interesting or funny to begin with. #excitingrevelations

Law school is stressful. If you are feeling overwhelmed, please reach out to someone.

Yeah, it was all I could do to keep from lacing up a surgical mask! Does anybody know if coming to class sick falls under a strict liability or a negligence standard? I am going to go ahead and work on my cause of action against Gray.

Were the law-related rap lines original content? If so, I would like to represent you in finding an album deal. I have a feeling there is a strong market for such an act.

Oh yeah, they were all original. Somewhat like in the Article III sense.

Keep calm, y'all; it's all gonna be okay. Thousands upon thousands have lost their shit before us and made it through just fine; I'm certain the shit-losing is non-necessary for the making-it-through part. Perspective: law school's hard -- but it isn't forever. Plus, next semester/quarter, we'll all have so much better a grasp of what is expected.
