I wish people would stop posting stressed out fb status updates.  One guy, seriously, wished everyone at this university luck during finals and then hoped that everyone in his section will do 'almost' as good as him.  Douchiest move ever?

Yes, that's a pretty douchey move.  I have one guy in my section who resembles Dexter in appearance and demeanor, not to mention the fact that's probably a very precise serial killer.  He made some comment to the extent that he enjoys being in the library because he feeds off of everyone else's stress.  That's been the worst finals moment I've had thus far.

Seriously though, I refuse to use Facebook to vent my finals frustrations, people really need to cool it.

Thanks.  I know I need to stop comparing myself to others, but the temptation is so great.  I probably could have done more to stay on top of things this semester, but at this point I've done all that I possibly can do for tomorrow.  I made a good outline, I've taken every practice exam my professor posted, for the most part I think I understand this, and I know I can do this.  But I keep psyching myself out.

I really cannot wait for my first exam to be over so I can flip out over something else...

Thanks, guys.  I'm literally at a point where I don't know if I'm studying too much or too little, or if I'm doing the right things.  I'm just completely spazzing out at this point.  I have to stop going on facebook because anytime someone in my section has a status about finals I get worked up that they're doing something I'm not.  I haven't even been studying in the library, but I feel everyone's stress.

But I am going to get to bed at a reasonable hour and enjoy some ice cream and Seinfeld reruns before I go to sleep.  Thanks for the advice.

Anyone have any advice to get me to stop freaking out about finals?  I took a practice exam earlier this morning and it just did not go as well as I hoped.  Now I'm in a crippling panic. 

Having said that, I wish all of you guys luck on your finals.  You're going to be great.

The city has to pay for the whole thing?  Is no federal funding able to help?  I would think that since the bridge is part of an interstate that the city doesn't have to fund everything on their own.

Of course, government at every level (especially the state of California) is broke.  I see where you're coming from, maybe this is a project best left to a time when there is more funding available, but times like these are when suicides go up.  I think the nets aren't going to save lives by catching people as much as they will deter such activity.

Another thing to consider is the cost of search and rescue.  How much does it cost every time a person or body has to be pulled out of the Bay?  How much does it cost to look for bodies?  I honestly don't know the answer to that but it has to be costly to the city to deal with that, as well as the handling and burial of any John/Jane Does that might come their way.  Also, I don't really see how a safety net is going to detract tourists.  The way I've always imagined it, I never really thought it would take away from the beauty of the structure and scenery.  Do you have any research to back this up?  I definitely see your point about the cost, and certainly if there's no money for it I don't really understand how it can even happen, but a rescue net probably is a good idea that should have been done years ago.

While a person can easily find another way to end their life if they want, the Golden Gate Bridge does have the highest incidence of suicides in the world.  Many times, people select a method/location based on the dramatic effect it will have.  The Golden Gate Bridge has to be appealing for that reason.  It won't deter all suicides in San Fran, but it will at least decrease its popularity as the place to commit suicide.  It will probably save lives and dissuade people, and I think that makes it worth it.

I still have a job!  ;D

AWESOME news!  Congrats :)

I answered AND I will join in on the fun.  I completely agree, it's extremely important to maintain some semblance of healthy living habits while in law school.  Life is always stressful.  I try very hard to give myself at least 7-8 hours a night, though I admit that number ends up being a little lower.  I function so much better when I have a proper night's sleep and I think everyone else does too.  In my opinion, law school success relies heavily on time management, and not just spending every waking moment studying.

And having said that, I will now go back to managing my time properly and doing my schoolwork.  I should heed my own advice more often :)

Nice!!  Yeah just make sure that whoever gets it doesn't plan on forming a hippie drum circle.  Those are the worst.

Hello anybody and everybody still here, happy Saturday!

Suddenly I   like craigslist.  Placed ads last night for some of my crap that has   been hogging space and people actually want to give me $$$ for some of   it!   :D    Two items gone and cash in hand already ~12 hours after I placed the   ads!  I wonder if anyone wants the osterizer blender I have and if I   should place an ad for it too.  Those things are the gold standard in   bars for making mixed drinks, especially blended margs.   

I think someone will be more than happy to take it.  People buy the most bizarre things off Craigslist, I have no doubt in my mind that you can get some nice $$ for that blender.
