Whoever you were, you kicked ass.

Yeah seriously, it really is true when people say that everyone around seems to be smarter than you are, and I will say that everyone who got cold called did very well. So don't worry. I was too busy praying to God not to be called out, so if you managed to put noun and verb together, the chance is you managed to sound at least pretty decent.

I thought prof was done with me, so I started trying to get down what I just said before it left me

Then he asked me something else about what he'd been saying while I'd only been half listening

I've been told I actually sounded like I pretty much had it together but let me tell you that was the most terrifying experience of law school so far

Probably not making it to bar review since I'm taking the long weekend to go visit my fam before everything gets too hectic but I haven't decided for sure...I do figure there will be others to go to so yeah

(ALSO make sure you go to the Blind Pig with the beer garden. There are two blind pigs, and if you just google map blind pig it takes you to the other location that, while within very easy walking distance of the right one, will make you sad/confused. May or may not have made this mistake last week...at least there were a few of us that did)

Last week wasn't bar review it was just a group of 1Ls that got together...there were probably like 30 people give or take? I'm assuming for bar review there will be even more since it's all three years but there could be other people like me going "hey this is a long weekend still early on I'm using it to satisfy my visiting people requirement until Thanksgiving"

Can't disagree with you there...I know people told me going in law school is like high school only worse, but I didn't believe them until I got here. Are you in the groupme? (I didn't know of groupme until this summer when someone posted about making one in the facebook group, so if you don't it's an app that lets groups message together) There's one for the whole class and then I think each section has one and I know for section C at least we now also have one for both subsections. That's how some of the get-togethers have been being planned

If you aren't (and that goes for any of you guys on here) feel free to PM me and we'll work on figuring out how to add you in (I major struggled with it trying to add someone during orientation so I make no promises about my success)
