I apologize if my sentence structure was not perfect. All I am saying is that it is rather futile to complain about something that you voluntarily attending. If it such a bad state of affairs do something else, otherwise deal with the choices you have made. We are all in the same boat, and those that are not happy have to something to figure out why they are not happy. Too many people at my school, and many others I am sure, treat law school as the cross they have to bear and do not look toward it as an opportunity many people could never imagine. Instead of feeling bad for yourself because you did not properly budget your time enough to go out on your birthday, try taking a minute to understand where you are currently in your life and be happy for what you have already achieved and what you still have left to achieve. Too many people take the fact they are able to pursue doctorate level degrees that will provide them with a profession that they will never have to worry about feeding their families or being outsourced for granted. If I offended anyone with my prior insensitive comment I am sorry. Feeling sorry for yourself is only going to continue your downward spiral. If it is that bad you're early enough in the semester where you can leave your books at your apartment, and go to the nearest city with a few friends have a good weekend starting tomorrow. Sometime that is what you need. Do not lose yourself in the process. If you are unprepared for a class on Monday, sign out and borrow someone's brief. You'll feel better because you took time to yourself.
