Trying to get going....

I just read Butterflyfish's post about being less organized this semester. Note that we're into February and I'm just now reading that post.

I'm having a hard time being motivated or organized.

The first two weeks of school, more than half the time I hadn't read for class. Since I recited twice during that time, the odds were pretty high that I hadn't read when I was called on. Fortunately one of those times Mr. D filled me in on the subject on the way to school. Con Law and we have to stand up for that one. Yuck. I survived, though.

Is it just me, or does it seem like the reading assignments are lighter? I'm getting most all of my reading done before Mr. D picks me up. When I get home, I don't have class preparation to do. That's nice, because I just want to hang out with him when I get home.

The past two weeks of school have been better as far as getting things done. I'm almost caught up with E&E's. I worked on flashcards for Property. Those are all done up through the material we'll cover this week. I haven't started flashcards for any of the other classes, but I'll try to get that going in the next few days.

I poked around on Lexis for some law review articles for my prof. I started research for my summary judgment thingy.

I've been a lousy poster, too. I'm still settling back into routines, I think. I hope everyone is doing well. I was able to post on Butterflyfish's blog, so maybe the blogger posting issues have been resolved.

Weird. My reading assignments are getting much longer, but I get what you're saying about being less motivated or whatever. I feel the same way.

NOOOOO! Con Law reading effing SUCKS monkey butt and property reading is tedious, though i like the class.

For property, if you've got an "I'm all about estates and future interests prof" -- look into Makdisi's workbook. More thorough than the E&E

Um, you have to STAND UP in class when you're called on? That sounds truly awful. We have three years of strict socratic here, which I thought was bad, but at least they don't make us stand up.
