the book for the canadian equivalent for con law would be awesomely short.

Canadian charter of rights and freedoms, 1982. ;)

just because you're down at halftime doesn't mean you can't win.  get your head in the game and you'll be okay.

That, and who knows, your grades may be all over the place if you've only gotten back the one.

The wait over here is murdering my soul.

Although I get a memo grade back tomorrow, which I think will actually increase my anxiety because I'm pretty sure I am not pwning the curve in LRW.

i think they fast-tracked our grades to try and make up for the construction nonsense (which is not that bad.  i actually kind of like looking into the "courtyard" and seeing huge machines rearranging these monumental piles of dirt.  sometimes i close my eyes and pretend i'm Siva).  anyway, what i really wish they'd do is start taking plastic in the freaking cafe.

All right, I got a bad grade and now I need to learn from it.  I'm going to start gunning like I've never gunned before.  This is it.  Henceforth, most waking hours of 1L will be devoted to law school.  No more friends, no more socialization.  I screwed up and I need to redeem myself.

I don't know if this is the lesson to be learned from this experience.

Very very slightly below median, or round around median, depending on who you ask.  So like a B.

What should I take from it?  I'm pretty crestfallen, though it was a Philosophy of Law type class, so it won't be replicated.  I put so many hours into studying for it, and then just got the *&^% beat out of me on the curve.
