Get back to work! :lol: Really need some gin but I'm bad at drunk studying.


Thanks hillz! You're a mensch.

I tried studying drunk once. I think it made me faster at RC. Mostly because I forgot that I needed to actually understand what I was reading.

ETA - Reminds me of the Woody Allen quote: "I took a speed reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia."


lol....lol....lol

I got caught in the TLS web today as well, it happens, studying for the LSAT gets lonely sometimes

About to take the June 2010 test after an 11 hour workday.. Ahh the TFA life -___-
But alas! Spending the 3 day weekend in Athens Georgia for some college football and libations before I hanker down in the war room for the next 3+ weeks.

Will update with performance for anyone interested =)

Don't worry.. today I wrote one of my best LR sections during a timed section, and during the next timed section did literally one of my worst in months.. 23/25 to 18/25. It happens!

anyone else having pretty big discrpancies between their timed section scores and their blind review scores? I haven't done many PT's (just one in many many months), but when I add together my timed sections from PT's (I know its not an accurate repressentation of my actual score) I get anywhere from 160-165, when in my full PT I got a 164. However, when I do blind review I'm getting 168-172 range, lately being closer to 170 than the higher 160's. Being over to mull over questions in blind review I often see the error of my ways.

Anyone else seeing big gaps?

I am unbelievably angry that Shark Tank's new season premiers the night before the LSAT. First thing I'm doing when I get back to the apartment (an hour drive from the testing center): pull out a bottle of wine and find Shark Tank on Hulu. On the topic of alcohol after the LSAT, after last year's LSAT I bought four bottles of liquor afterwards because I knew I did so poorly.

I spent way too much time on TLS today....not cool...plus I am starting to feel like the Lounge/Off-Topic is going to cause me to sin my soul :(

Side note 1....Orange is the New Black is sooooo funny now on S1E4 but :D :D :D

Side note 2.....I'm secretly praying that my husband oversleeps so I can miss check-in tomorrow morning....no family vacation.. :lol:

Did 2 sets of RC 2night...felt pretty good. -3 on one (average -2/-3), then on the other I had a very, very unexpected -4. I missed 2 on the first fuckin passage...idk wtf happened. Apparently I missed this huge part of the logic of the passage, but I think it was kind of bs. So I missed 2 on the first, 2 on the last...none in between. Obvs I want 2 b less than -4 but that one passage had a dude flummoxed.

can't sleep. need to come here and vent.

today I was studying at the library and was timing myself on a RC section. all of sudden the girl sitting right next to me picked up her phone and started to talk very loudly. i tried to ignored it and just focus but failed. So I asked her to keep it down. and she murmured something like give her a minute. So I waited. But I was getting angrier and angrier. I asked her again to move the talk outside. She gave me the "one more minute" sign.
finally, after she's done with the call, I didn't know why. but I felt like I should talk to her about the basic courtesy in the library. So I tried to talked to her. She just kept ignoring me which made me furious. so.....I walked to her and took her laptop. she chased me with her bare feet (yes! she took her shoes off and brought a whole grocery bag of food with her! sure she was very comfortable) and asked me for her laptop. I said, "now you are not deaf any more?" and we keep going back and forth for a minute or two. finally i gave back her laptop and left. After I found a new spot, my mind just couldn't collect its peace.

I admit I have over reacted a little bit. I don't why I got so upset. Normally, I will just let it pass or just move away. I don't know why I need to pick up the fight today. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
