Post Exam Prediction

After the exam, I wept.

I probably Am Jured the class.

I arrived in the pit of the library at 10am. It is now 10:45 and I am finally about to begin studying.

What have I been doing all this time? I invite you on a tour of inefficiency.

10:00 Get to the library. Note the general forlorn attitude. Unpack crap. Turn on computer, pull out books. Call Mr. Delictis to let him know I arrived okay. Go to locker.

10:05 Arrive at locker. Take out hideous Tax Code and Tax binder. Grimace at how I'm STILL "annotating" the Code. Wonder if I'll finish it today. Look at Evidence stuff in locker. Feel queasy. Slam door.

10:10 Go to Law Review office. Tidy up and make coffee.

10:15 Drop books off at library. Realize that I forgot my extension oord in the car. Wonder just how cold it will get in the library and if I REALLY need the extension cord for my mini heater. Remember how freaking cold I was yesterday. *Sigh* Back to the car.

10:20 Arrive at the car. Grab extension cord. Remember that I didn't get my composition book from my locker, so I have no paper. Bash head into the car.

10:25 Back at the locker. Retrieve comp book. Look in locker mirror. Quickly slam door because I don't recognize the wraith staring back at me.

10:30 Start another pot of coffee in the Law Review office as the pot I made a little bit ago is almost gone. Wonder who drank all the coffee. Assume one person filled up a really, really big cup.

10:35 Back at library. Sort through papers. Ponder whether I want to punch holes with my single hole punch or go upstairs to use a 3-hole punch.

10:40 Feel defeated before even starting.

10:45 Screw it. What's ten more minutes? Blog a little!

While proofing my last post I scrolled down to look at my playlist. What's on my playlist? Evidence - Impeachment.

No Posts Since JULY????

Has it really been THAT long?

I've thought about the blog. I've thought about you all.

The adage that in your second year they work you to death seems to be true. However, it's not law school that has really worked me to death, it's the "extracurricular" activities that have worked me to death.

I'm an Assistant for Law Review, so I get the opportunity to do more work before I run for the board. I also tutored a 1L class. That meant I had to relearn that class and teach for over an hour 5 times during the semester. In addition, I had to begin my Comment.

The semester has truly flown by. I'm interning over Christmas break so I can boost my resume and hopefully find a job for the summer.

I stopped by my job and someone asked me if I was enjoying time off from work and school. Why yes, I'm enjoying my time off from work and school. I'm enjoying it by spending 12-14 hours a day in the library. :P

I hope that some of y'all still left me on your feed lists! I miss everyone and I'll try to be better. I certainly had tons to complain about this semester, but there were some really rather cool things too. :)

How is everyone???

Write-On Complaining Part 1

Dear Readers,

The write-on competition started Friday. I printed the information this morning and decided to dedicate an hour to it this afternoon.

My hour sentence just passed.

I have a headache.

I had to open Lexis for chrissakes.

I haven't read ANYTHING all summer, which is a blog post in itself.

I'm not ready for school to start.

Lovely readers, please steel yourselves for about two weeks worth of whining.

I bet you wish I only had a weekend to write my note like some students do!!!!

All my love,

New Little 1Ls

My one year blog-o-versary is coming up in about a week. Where was I a year ago? Nervous about law school, not knowing what to expect, worried as heck about how I was going to pay for everything...

Now the 3Ls whose blogs I read a year ago are feverishly preparing for the bar. The 2Ls will be starting their final year and the 1Ls, a little jaded and banged up will start our second year of law school.

I think the past two semesters passed extremely quickly - after the first torturous month. All my blog friends were soooo helpful. The 2 & 3Ls jumped in with tons of good advice.

Where are the little 0Ls? I'm curious. I want to read about those started on their journeys the way I did one year ago.

Let's face it, I'm ecstatic that I don't have to go through that again.

Pro Res Question

First of all, thank you everyone for your warm words of support. I need it. I'm still smarting. Ouch.

When did you take Pro Res and the MPRE? Is there a preferred time? Do I have to take a prep class? Is it best to take Pro Res in the spring, then take the MPRE in August? A friend of mine is thinking about taking it this fall and taking the MPRE in March.

Right now the thought of taking another test I won't do well on in the middle of the semester feels really painful.

What are your wise thoughts on this?

Honey, If It Didn't Suck, It Wouldn't Be Law School

That's what Mr. D said to me on the way home yesterday after receiving bad grade news. Todays news was even worse. After working harder, doing more practice tests, reading outlines countless times, I have consistently done worse this semester than last.

Now I know why 2L's quit caring. The work put in isn't sure to pay off. Why try? The class I skipped the most I've done the best in so far, except for LRW. I quit reading cases within the first month, did few practice tests and only read the E&E once.

I'm left shaking my head, defeated, and ashamed.
