I usually never have any free time between work and school and Im too tired to do anything physical... So instead of browsing around on the net I thought flashcards would be a good idea.

Im bored... I just got done with Law Library and Criminal Litigation starts on the 8th.

But I guess youre right... Im going to the beach and will probably stick to reading forum posts rather than posting any at all.

Thanks 4 the heads up

This is not a productive use of your time.

So what would you consider a productive use of time before law school? I've been using my time to do nothing while I still can. I assume that very little difference will be made with regard to my work in law school regardless of how I spend my time. Between working out in the gym, working at a deli, and watching cartoons, I pretty much just sit around and stare off into space. I figure I should log as many hours as I can doing this so that I don't miss the (in)activity when I go into manic mode next fall. More lawyers seem to advocate this mentality than discourage it. Any thoughts?
