Warning! Whining Post!

I do homework all the time. I read on the way to school in the dark. I read on the way home. My pleasure reading consists of the Contracts and/or Torts E&E's. When I'm not doing homework, I'm working at one of two jobs.

Usually I bear my burden with (little to) no complaining.

Today I don't want to study. I want a break. I go to school six days a week. Yes, six days. We have optional tutoring for three hours on Saturdays, and you know that all the "good" law students are there.

However, I have a motion for summary judgment due on Thursday. It's about 2/3s of the way done, I think. If I skip some classes between now and Thursday it should be suitable for turning in by then. I promised Mr. D that I would complete one section today. That just leaves me with subsections A & B, Conclusion and explanation of summary judgment sections.

Whine, whine, whine = I want some wine before noon.

Mr. D offered a compromise. He'll play Heroes of Might and Magic with me and I can make flash cards instead of reading.

I imagine that after a little bit I'll perk up and finish Con Law for Monday, even though I'm definitely skipping that class. We voted to have Con Law for two hours MW rather than 1.5 hours on MWF. During those two hours on Monday I should be able to wrap up the motion.

Enough whining. I know I'm not the only law student bummed about law school consuming her life.

Thanks for the poke or prod to update my own blog -- bad law student blogger I have been (and apparently like Yoda speak I). The short update is that first semester went reasonably well, along with reasonably good grades (although not good enough for my insanely high standards for myself), and I have a real live paying summer associate job lined up in my city. So far, so good. And I really will try to update mine again, but at the moment Property and leasehold estates are calling their siren song.

I should just copy and paste this post to my blog... without the Heroes of Might and Magic. Cuz I don't know what that is. :-)
