We have a draft due Sunday. I think I might know what I'm doing, but I'm very glad it is not graded.

Bar review is just about the only thing that saves my sanity every weekend. Unfortunately I don't get to start bar review on Thursdays since we have an 8am Friday class

Meanwhile in Chicago, orientation starts tomorrow! And goes through the entirety of next week. And then eventually classes start, presumably before Halloween, but really who's to say?

Eh, memos aren't terrible but there are definitely ways I would rather be spending my Saturday. Got all my reading for Monday (and some for Tuesday) done yesterday though, so should have Sunday all to myself :D

It would probably help if I could muster the motivation to wake up earlier than 11 on days without class.

My memo is all I'm doing tonight. It's definitely not as bad the second time around.

I was going to say take it in the other direction. Ask him how he plans to be a successful attorney if he has to pull an all-nighter to finish an assignment in the first month of studying law.

This was my thought too. Ask him if he needs some suggestions for time management techniques.

should prob also let him know if he ever wants to know what it's like to get 8-9 hours of sleep a night while being totally prepared for class to just ask

We have a dude that for the most part wears like business casual every day with a ball cap, and is like always slouching in his chair including when talking to the prof... people have been referring to him as "super douche"

Our gunner, who is the gunneriest gunner to ever gun, went off today in Legal Writing about how our professor isn't actually a professor, and is being disrespectful to real professors by using the title. That was....interesting.
