It’s official: I’m going nuts

Went to bed at ~11:30pm last night, fully expecting to get a solid 6 hours of sleep, wake up, eat breakfast, and have an otherwise relaxed morning en route to my 9am CivPro exam.

Instead I woke up at 2:25am from a nightmare about… midterms :beatup:

I dreamed I had gotten my Property midterm back. Only 14 of 30 points on the multiples and 52 of 70 points on the essay, so a D.

As I’m trying to figure out what I did wrong, several classmates who wrote their essays start arguing about the results and want to file a lawsuit against the Professor for negligently giving the typing students 10 extra minutes to finish.

A few others complained that some of the multiples had typos. An argument ensued over whether they could do a Rule 18 joinder of claims.

Then one guy in the back started talking about interpleading everyone under Rule 22 because he got a 100 and didn’t want to face multiple liabilities if they prevailed.

Then the Professor came in and wanted to implead the proctor under Rule 14, as a student in another section materialized out of nowhere to insist the Code of Student Conduct gave them a Rule 24 right to intervene.

Somewhere around that point I woke up.  w… t… f… :crack:

I hate law school nightmares. They always get so much worse closer to exam time. Do you guys have midterms that count or only practice ones?

Wow. Lovely (while lovely == terrifying). I look forward to those days.

But now you can say you can do that stuff in your sleep…

I believe school nightmares are still better than the watermelon.

@Brandon: midterms count for us, 20% of the final grade >_< It's my first bona fide law school nightmare -- crossing my fingers that it doesn't happen again :D

@Becky: good point, I'm gonna have to remember that spin ;)

@JJC: I like watermelons though :P :)
