Anyone else have sudden-onset ADD when outlining?
« on: April 19, 2009, 02:39:30 PM »
I can't outline for more than 10 minutes at a time without my mind drifting off. In no other facets of my life do I have difficulty with concentration. Is it just me?

Are you kidding?  If you can last 10 minutes, you have the stamina of a stallion.  It's 70 and sunny outside, and I'm listening to Cheh on Con Law.  FML.

Ya this weekend has been rough.  I did crim law last week and I breezed through it really fast.  I'm doing Con Law now and every tiny little section I get done I start thinking about something else and wasting time :( lol

This is because outlining is really boring.

I'm on 40 mg of Adderal, 3 power bars, seccond pack of smokes and my fourth 16oz Monster of the day I can last maybe 6 mins
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

Yes.  Outlining requires a lot of intensive concentration on the law.  How long can you write:

Actus Reus:

Omission
Affirmative Act

We all get it...which is why we're on f-ing LSD instead of concentrating on outlining. I wish I could smoke in the house...would make the whole process so much easier.

Oh well, back to the fun!

Stop whining and get back to work, all of you!

Don't make me crack out my whip.  >:(
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

Tell me you're doing that with a hangover and I'll really be impressed.
