So...if anybody is having trouble waking up and getting invigorated at the early hour we must rise, maybe try my old routine. Jump in a steaming hot shower as soon as you wake up, hot as you can stand for about 10 minutes, then turn that mofo to freezing cold for about 30 seconds. It's excruciating, but I guarantee that it'll wake you up and get your brain functioning. You might have to let loose a couple of war cries to get you through it though.

Can vouch that this works.

My team uses it for brutal early morning track meets, in place of caffeine, which is a terrible for keeping hydrated.

So yeah, I feel good. Gonna do gym, cleaning, errands (picture/gallon baggie/etc) then I'm gonna do a couple of timed LR sections, then pack for my trip to the hotel tomorrow.

Shit is getting real!


You got this Worm. I'm rooting for all you guys. If I had time, I'd be retaking too. -9 RC October. Motherfucker.

Finishing the semester, while time-consuming, is almost painfully easy compared to the LSAT. I miss you guys. It's good to have someone push you, and that doesn't happen at my undergrad. The other students there all think I'm a genius.

That literally sounds like the worst possible way to wake up on the entire planet. I think I would cry.

I think I would cry more going -5 on RC due to grogginess.

That's pretty much where my -9 RC came from. RC was my first section and I wasn't all there yet. I would have jumped in an icy lake if it would have spared me that shit.

Game Day: Waking up at 0530 hours.

Doing a Logic Game in bed at 0532 hours. Then review.

Shower. Another Logic Game, a Reading Comp passage.

4 Parallel Reasoning, 4 Parallel Flaw, 4 Weaken, 4 Strengthen, 4 Necessary Assumption.

Testing Center is 15 minutes away. Take one last Logic Game -- and own it, walk into testing center as Ennio Morricone's Da Uomo A Uomo plays.

Shout: "O-ren Ishii! Shoubu wa mada tsuicha inai yo!"

Cut off Logic Game's arm. Watch as LSAT displays fear and unleashes Crazy 88 on me. Game on.

That poor poor test. It feel all sorts of safe with that little piece of tape keeping it sealed. When I get done with this MF'r there's going to get restraining orders, injunctions, and registered test offender lists to keep me from doing it again.

You hear me test? I'm commin' you cant stop this!

You can take all your mauve dinosaurs, all your zones and !Kung and you stain your glass with it. This is our time. I'm gandolf and you're some bitch ass demon. You have no clue how fucking committed we are.

Yeah, but he came out even more of a badass than he already was, which I didn't think could happen. That would like like killing the LSAT, dying in the process, and being reincarnated as a Supreme Court justice, or managing partner, or whatever your fantasy is. Also, you get to be immortal.

Doing RCs from 61-65 today and doing In/Out Games

Tomorrow: Go over LG types to make sure I'm not missing anything or rusty, maybe a few timed LRs, and hopefully in bed by 10.

Took PT 67, with a 170.

RC -3
LR -5
LG -2

I've been hitting 168-171 on PTs, aiming for a 167+ on Test Day.

Any tips to combat potential dips this Saturday? That killed me in October. I'm taking one more full-length PT today and will probably go somewhere with distractions.
