I have absolutely no drive to work.  We're into our second week of class, and I'm way behind in everything.  I think it might be attributable to the huge fall off of pressure after exams.  Or maybe exams plain burned me out.  Who knows.

I have a quiz this term.  It's 20% of my grade.  And it's on the text of the Constitution.  So I'm going to spend January memorizing it.

Convince me that this doesn't blow.

i'm with you.  today is horrible.  last semester i was nervous and excited, this semester i just don't want to f-ing be here.

The ConLaw quiz sounds so strange.  I hope that's not on a curve.  What do you do -- give someone a much higher grade because they nailed two additional clauses?  ::)

I second the fall off after finals.  The worst thing is that I feel capable of learning everything in a week before finals now.  It's really not that much law.  Procrastination FTW.

Also, I hate Contracts.

I'm in a similar boat, but not that I don't want to be here so much as I'm /still/ somehow burnt out from last semester.  I'm thinking I'll readjust after a week or so, though, once I get used to it again.

This is so not fun/acceptable MAS talk.

Do you go out much?  I've gone out the last few days, but the people here refuse to drink on weekdays for some reason.  There was one other law student at the bar yesterday, lol, and I offered to buy people beer.  (I bought the only taker a Pilsner.)

Overconfidence is extremely dangerous, but I feel like I need time to develop fear again.  Panic will strike soon enough. 

It's funny to hear me and overconfidence in the same sentence, isn't it?  ;)

That's true, too, I guess.  Panic will set in soon enough.  You of all people can stand to chill out for a few days haha!

No underlining case names on message boards, Wally.  No.

My Con Law final is going to be closed book.  Just kill me now.

Exactly.  At least for the first few weeks of first term you could tell yourself that you were genuinely interested in this poo.

I still am . . . is that weird?

I'm actually okay with being back, mostly I'm just dreading getting my grades.

That's not strange.  You come off as nicely academic, and I think that natural curiosity finds a good outlet in the law.

I find certain courses interesting.  I like Property, Torts, and Crim.  I hate Contracts.  I feel like this is the most natural way to go about law school, with certain things exciting you and others numbing you.
