how's everyone doing?  still sane?

feeling surprisingly fine.  i'm surprised by how many clueless people there are asking basic questions about SJ and JML, but they can still pwn me on the exam, so i'm wary.

also, i exchanged exams with one of the Olin Fellows and he absolutely pwnd.  he hit every issue, nailed the right analysis, and noticed everything.  and he's in my section.

An Olin Fellow is someone at my school who's doing a joint PhD./JD thing with the Econ department.  They're easily the smartest people in the class.

Why shouldn't I be intimidated by classmates?  It's not like he's smarter than I am.  He just wrote a better exam, spotting more issues and more coherently defending his positions.  I'm meeting with him in an hour, and I'll try to learn from him and the memo to be more inclusive.

I honestly think my professor uses a check-list, so as long as I run through everything thoroughly like he did, I should be fine.  (Median, definitely.  Hopefully above it.)

Oh, definitely the former.  I'm very motivated by what others are doing, especially if it seems more reasonable or intelligent than me.

hi dot!  and good luck!  :)

Heeeey!  And thanks.   ;D  I'll need it.  Law school exams are much harder in practice than they seemed in theory.  You know, back when I was doing LEEWS over the summer.  Hrm.

Haha!  Almost didn't recognize you, blue.  Yeah, I needed to focus on school so I cut a few time-sucks out.  I think it was helpful.  Now I'm procrastinating (instead of studying) so they're baaaaack.   :D

Ah yes, I have a new look for the holidays :)  I'm glad taking time away was helpful!
