Walls!!  How are you?  Did you end up where I think you did?  central time zone?

How are things?

Yep.  Studying for Finals.  Knee-deep in practice exams.

Good luck.

I think second semester has to suck less, just because you actually kind of know what you're doing now and what to expect.

Depends on the course load at your school.  At Michigan, with taking 2-3 more credits second semester, it sucks way more.

That would blow.

I'd imagine worrying about finding a summer job (especially right now) won't make next semester any easier either.

Agreed.  Just because you know what's coming doesn't make it any better/easier.

1L spring was my easiest semester so far.

2L fall has been worst. I had 300+ hours of law review work, wrote a case note, had a legal writing class, and went through the stressful job hunt.  The time commitment has been reversed, though.  Now that finals are here, my stress level has strangely decreased.

1L they scare you.
2L they work you.
3L they bore you.

But it always depends on your school, classes, profs, etc.
