Most definitely can confirm. Fall is the absolute worst it will ever be.

I've enjoyed it all up until now, but with memo and exams coming up, I'm getting a little stressed. Trying to keep my eyes on the prize: Christmas break.

Stay strong! You can do almost anything for a month. Just keep counting to ten.

Knowledge and taking positive action based on that knowledge are two different things. I'm aware that eating a half gallon of ice cream in one sitting increases my potential for a whole host of issues. This knowledge has not stopped me from enjoying a carton by myself on a regular basis. :D Please judge me. I need to stop...

That's an odd thing to describe as 190. I was confused.

No no, can confirm: it was dope. Also more like 5 minutes. More specifically, it was during our rape unit, and it was a killer, incredibly succinct critique of shitty western prudishness and our continued view of sex through the traditional protestant lens of something to be ashamed of; this was all to do specifically with issues of consent (in direct response to previous and continued statements which tended to suggest some pretty standard -- and pretty chauvinist -- shit). At no point was it gross or ranty or crazy; it was just well-educated, thoughtful, and badass. It was the most tasteful gunnery I've yet seen; the applause was well-deserved.

Honestly, this just makes the whole law school sound kind of terrible. Applause, really?

Tell me more about this "view of sex through the traditional protestant lens of something to be ashamed of" and the chauvinistic remarks that invited the speech. Genuinely trying to understand if this is pure applesauce or not.

The proper response would have been audible groaning. Definitely not applause.

My class was mercifully silent with respect to their views on that section of the course.
