The Shape I'm In

I'm screwed. It's one week to my first exam. I'm thrown into two 1L classes. I first opened a book (because of other commitments all semester) on Monday. I get to learn a whole semester of ConLaw and Evidence (FRE and local rules-no outline or rule book) in a little over a week. I've never pushed it like this, and I'm gambling with a lot. These grades are the most important, I can't kill my GPA right before I apply for a judicial clerkship.

I need to find my happy place.

I cut off the lights. Pulled out my favorite special occasion rum. Made a mojito. Put on the Gipsy Kings. And I'm dreaming about the ocean (White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, BVI)

(yeah, sorry about Kenny, but that's the place)

Hotel California is still my favorite gypsy kings...

Just remember the advice I gave a young pledge worried that because he got too drunk once he just might go to hell. "You'll be in good company if you do."

Good luck and may blind lady justice tip the scale your way!

Con Law and Evidence in the same semester? That is some seriously cruel shit! If it's any consolation, I don't think anyone actually understands the course material until the days leading up to the final. I know I sure as hell don't.

I just took my con law exam and I taught myself more in a couple of days than I learned all semester (hey - all that crap DID make sense). Now I'm cramming for business orgs and attempting not to throw up from anxiety.

I really should have read something before now, but my 2l year was MUCH better than my 1l.
