...people really need to cool it.
Good luck with that idea. It's an over a century old tradition for law students to freak out and stress out to the max during finals that isn't going to change or go away. I'm glad facebook and all the other tech social networking stuff didn't exist when I went to LS. We just had email and basic web access via dial up modems and didn't even have google! For the rumor mill we had to rely on in person and telephone communication.
How did your first final go Ms. Lemon?
Yeah, I don't really expect people to stop freaking out. I was pretty intolerable leading up to the first final. It's really just the constant Facebook statusing. My favorites are the gunners who claim to quit Facebook during finals. They announce these intentions on Facebook, and I've caught a few of them on there in spite of their apparent decision to quit it. I like Facebook because I think it's a nice outlet, and in spite of what these people might think, you cannot study 24/7.
I have no idea how the final went. It really felt so-so. When I first hit submit I was convinced I failed, I'm still pretty sure I seriously dropped the ball on one of the questions. But other people apparently struggled with the question as well, so I guess that's good. I woke up this morning, convinced that I didn't do enough to prepare and that I failed. I guess we'll see. Apparently one of my professors did really badly his first semester, and still managed to graduate cum laude, so I am comforting myself with that fact
Now I'm battling a gross cold and chronic fatigue, and I still have tons of work to do to prep for the next two finals. But I'm gonna make it.
