2L year is worthless.  I think I spend maybe 30 minutes a night on homework, if that, and I learn absolutely nothing I didn't already learn as a 1L.  Diminishing marginal utility of law school FTW.

How is everyone else enjoying it?  Taking time to smell the flowers?  Preoccupied with SOs, the NFL, archery?

::bump::

you people should have warned me more about how much work I would be doing in LS.

Why do you think we all disappeared from the board last September?  It certainly wasn't because we all got lives all of a sudden.

And just wait til next year.  My semester was like finals week every week.
At least I can f-ing think.

See, I've been trying to maintain 1L levels of class prep and exam studying while doing all of that other stuff.

Maybe that wasn't a good idea.  I'm getting the sense that this isn't normal.  Yet most people seem to be well-prepared for class, so WTF?

Anyway, regardless of whether it's classes or other stuff, 2L f-ing BLOWS.  When I see people out in public doing things that look enjoyable now, I start hoping they die in a fire.  I seriously walk by people and think to myself, "You mofo, how DARE you sit in the park on a sunny day and drink coffee and chat with a friend.  DO YOU KNOW THE LAST TIME I DID THAT?!"
At least I can f-ing think.

To be fair, I've been deluged with responsibilities & obligations this year--basically all the 1L stuff (four doctrinal classes) plus callback travel, journal cite-checking/writing, and casebook work for a prof--but I've pretty much managed to avoid doing poo.

So there's definitely more "work," but there's definitely less "doing work."

This.

Dischord: I sit in the park everyday.

My fantasy football team is 9-1.  Chris Johnson is the man.

You make it suck.  That's right: you make it suck with your attitude.   :P

I had the strangest daydream in Tax yesterday.  There's a hipster in my building, and I had a fantasy in which I beat him up.  I take off his black-rimmed glasses, smash them, smash his Neutral Milk Hotel CD, then push his 5'9'' frame up against a locker and take his lunch money.  He says, "Please, Mr. Wally.  Make it stop," and starts crying.

Very satisfying, though I bet he gets laid more often than I do.

Was that a pointed comment?

If he still thinks Neutral Milk Hotel are obscure, he's not a hipster; he's just a loser.

Anyway what kind of attitude am I supposed to have about the horrific amount of work I have, the impending doom of finals, and the fact that I no longer am ABLE to have outside hobbies or even take care of myself because there are 24 hours in a day instead of the 36 or more I need to accomplish everything I have to do? 

This makes me think of this case blurb I read in Mental Health Law where they tried to rule a defendant incompetent for being severely depressed because he wanted no mitigating evidence presented at his capital sentencing hearing, and he stood up in court and was basically like "I'm in f-ing prison, you idiots, of course I am miserable."
At least I can f-ing think.

What work is this?  I've done jack poo.  I learned income tax and trusts and estates entirely off 3L outlines.  I never read for one of my classes.  I'm on a journal, and sure a comment takes a while, but it's nothing that forces me to put 36 hours in my day.

I don't know what a pointed comment is.
