One week in and I've officially lost all motivation to study ever again. Does this mean I did 1L right or I'm doing 2L wrong?

I'm of no use to advise here, aside from helping with apostrophe placement.

Of the things in life crushing my will/making me miserable, journal probably doesn't crack the top 10, mostly because there are no consequences for poor (within reason) performance.

Sacraficing the opportunity for EIC is, likely, a consequence. We might not care about that consequence, but it exists.

Are inconsequential consequences consequential, though?

I'm using the first definition:

So...yes?

But I imagine there are several warnings before that happens.

Well, should you opt to go on a murderous rampage, you are entitled to a jury of your peers. As long as you can get agreement that your peers are others on Journals I think you have a reasonable chance of a favorable verdict, and if not... well at least you wouldn't need to worry about Jornal anymore.

What if the sentence included 10,000 hours of Bluebooking poorly-cited student notes?

I would imagine that any mandatory Bluebooking for a prisoner (other than perhaps their own appeal) would be cruel and unusual. Although, I imagine that Bluebooking fellow prisoners appeals would be even uglier than a normal set of bad student notes.

So I tried out for our Moot Court trial teams. I'll find out soon how bad I was.
