I woke up at noon today and my phone said it was one and I felt like a lazy slob, and then I saw my watch and spent five minutes scratching my head (and silently scolding my phone) before I figured it out and stopped feeling like such a bum.
Just bought my cap and gown for graduation. Let's hope I make it there
update on my life: I'm such a failure as a law student. I never want to do work (but I eventually get it done). Anyone else have that problem, or is everyone breezing through their readings and briefs?
I turned in my brief exactly at the deadline time. I am behind in all classes on readings (some have just fallen by the wayside until the end of the semester -- and even then, I'll probably just read the briefs and not the actual cases). I have zero motivation to do actual work except for fear that I will fail out and die. I also really dislike my classes this semester wayyyyy more than last semester. Profs are OK, but the subject matter just seems way more boring.
And instead of working at the library right now, I'm writing this. Fail.
I'm way more motivated this semester (thank you, student health services, for finally getting me appropriate ADD meds,) but have had so much less time, between the emergency housing move and walking pneumonia. I also turned in my brief at the very last minute (literally - 8:59am.) I like most of my classes (Crim, unfortunately, is so dull) and my profs, but feel like I'm just treading water at this point. I'm looking forward to break starting next Friday, just so I have the whole week to play catch up.
Reason to go to Michigan or reason to skip?
Got grades back.
Range from pleasantly surprised to stunned.
I guess I'm not going to fail out after all. And I might actually get a job. Rejoice!
can anyone recommend a good con law supplement?
I've heard Chemerinsky is hands down the best out there. I've ordered it but it hasn't arrived yet, so I can't give you any first hand knowledge.
Yes, this ^.
I don't see anything unethical about keeping the fact that he's applied to law school under his hat. There are good reasons why he wouldn't want current employers to know this until he knows where and what he's going to be doing. And as far as adcoms go with regard to content posted here, I totally agree with his decision to limit as much as possible their ability to zero in on his app. How many people have ddubbed even a single post for that very reason?
I'm finally cleaning up my apartment and finishing unpacking. It's much closer to getting to 100% which makes me happy. Instead of cleaning yesterday as I planned, I went to IKEA. I planned to just walk in, buy a dresser, and walk out. 2+ hours and hundreds of dollars later, I left.
