1 Out of 3 Finals Down…and 3 More to Go12.12.13

I studied my ass off for my contracts final. It was my toughest one, and I know it would likely be my worst grade. I left my contracts final on Tuesday feeling glad it was over, I figured I would be getting a B or B- so I need my other two finals to be amazing. I realized from leaving Contracts, that it didn’t matter if I had another week to study for it, the test covered all sorts of topic that we did not cover in class. It was just awful.

Tomorrow is our Civil Procedure final. We had a study session today. After we left, our section’s Facebook group blew up. Apparently one of the  two essay questions from our Contracts final was readily available online with ANSWERS even, so students have been using it as practice hypo, which meant people knew the answer to what would have been 30% of our final grade. The students were honest enough to come forward and notified the dean that they found it online…apparently on the first page when you google “contract hypos”.

Obviously, my classmates are all in a tizzy. We spent 3.5 hours taking an exam that would very likely be nulled. The dean doesn’t have an answer as to what they would do about it, and said we won’t even discuss it until we finish our other finals because they want us to focus. So the options are all up in the air, keep the exam, throw it and retake, or whatever else. Of course, Facebook discussion went on for hours between the students before people focused.

I feel very bad that people are so upset. However, I just found the situation hilarious and horrible. Nothing for nothing, it makes for great law school horror story. It’s never fun to be the person that it happened to, but damn, the storytelling potential when I have to interview for internships, and there’s no grade where Contracts should be. This situation is so ridiculous, if it happened in a movie, I would have thought that it’s too fake and made up by unimaginative writers that wants drama for the sake of drama.

Thanksgiving Break12.03.13

I never thought I’d wake up early on Thanksgiving day, make a nice hot mug of coffee. Sit down. Hit the books for hours. And enjoy it.

This week is the last week of class. Then I have two finals next week and a last one the week after. All the 1Ls are in a state of panic. I think I’m finally hitting my strides, which is really pathetic because if I had a been hitting my stride all semester, I would be a much better class participant. However, I will take it, better late than never.

I have most of my outlines done for every class, still need some finishing touch of course, but I’m happy with the progress on them. My memo that is due this Thursday, is mostly done.

I want to tell you that age has taught me how to be cool as a cucumber, and truth to be told, I think I am. But, occasionally, I catch myself saying things, and if I stop to think about it, I realize, I’ve turned into a god damned psycho bitch. I’m combative. I will argue the shit out of whatever even if I could possibly be wrong. Even when the boyfriend asks for a hug, I tell him I have limited amounts of hugs to give per day. I’m as fun a barrel of monkeys. If the monkeys had mange and were infected with “Rage” virus.

I was out on Sunday for my girlfriend’s birthday, and I told her I was just so happy to be out with non-law  school friends. Don’t get me wrong, I love my law school friends, we party together, and I enjoy their company immensely. However, I’m developing a Pavlovian response to their presence, where I get that icky “I’ve just spent 14 hours working on my god damned memo/outline” feeling when I see them.
