I brought my books home over winter break and never took them out of my car.

So I recommend not making the effort and just leaving them here.

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

I outlined a little over spring break, but none over Xmas. Read a book, watch TV, sleep, do anything but study.

I definitely have to do job stuff, but, yeah, I meant outlining.  I've heard a lot of people talking about it, but I'm not feeling motivated to do it myself.

Are you currently in Hyde Park?

I'm pretty sure that me and another kid I just talked to are the only ones.

I am not in Hyde Park.  (Thankfully.)  People were talking about outlining over break before first quarter was over.

People might talk about outlining over break.  Perhaps even a very few do.

BUT OH DEAR LORD YOU SHOULD NOT.

Why do you people not get this?

I hadn't really thought about it until people started talking about it. I guess the only reason I'm thinking about doing it is because I literally have nothing else to do.  I've never really gotten a winter break before, so I feel like I have way too much downtime. 

Also, for torts, I'm so lost.  I just have no idea what's going on and I can't even think about it coherently.  So I thought maybe going back over first quarter would help me?

I'm with sillyberry on this one.  If you haven't already finished outlining first quarter of torts and property by now, it's a lost cause anyway.  Might as well enjoy your break.

Huh?

I plan to read a bunch of hornbooks, because Gersen's class is totally useless for BLL.

Also, Hyde Park over the winter is the very definition of TTT.

What? You're joking, right?
"I'm a genius, but I'm a misunderstood genius."
"What's misunderstood about you?"
"Nobody thinks I'm a genius."

"A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day."

Gersen's class teaches you everything you need to know for Gersen's test. He definitely did not ask anything that was not covered in class on his test. (I studied no hornbooks for Torts, and did not need to.)

Which is to say, that the only black letter law you need to know is in the book, in the assigned readings. (A few restatements or something.)

Strahi shed tears for the class of 2009.

We didn't get tears last year.

We got an inexplicably long Matrix analogy.

"What's misunderstood about you?"
