Well *that* sure didn’t take long…

Good evening y’all :)

Sorry for never finishing another entry from this weekend! As a super-quick recap: Friday night’s post-meeting festivities lasted until about 5:30am, I woke up at 7:30am, and was not only coherent but surprisingly non-exhausted — I made it to the UNCASG meeting 30 minutes early and was the first one to arrive, the first time either of those things has happened in the 4 years I’ve been involved with the organization :crack:

My presentation that morning went well, and I used the rest of the afternoon trying to catch up on ConLaw from last week. The post-meeting dinner was good in terms of company1 but the service and food were both abominable.2 The obligatory carousing afterwards made up for it, until folks were a bit too loud for my comfort at 2am and I convinced them it was time to leave my hotel room and venture somewhere else. At which point I promptly fell asleep :beatup:

Then of course Sunday was the drive back, being reminded how tedious it is unpacking from a mini-vacation, and reading for class.

Which — coincidence! — is the subject of tonight’s post.

If you ever want to quite thoroughly jinx yourself when it comes to law school, start a blog (like this one) and write in an entry (like this one) that you’re 2 days ahead on the reading. Tempting fate is definitely a Recipe. For. Disaster.

I just spent pretty much my entire night tonight doing absolutely nothing but grinding away on ConLaw to get caught up. My figuring is if that’s the class with material I’m already kinda comfortable with, and it’s worth 4 credit hours, I need to go full-tilt for a solid grade. And I can successfully say I’m back ahead on the ConLaw readings so that’s a mini-sigh of relief.

However…

Catching up on ConLaw meant not touching Evidence, for which I’m now at least 1 full class behind. I’m also totally lost in ZombieLaw, not so much because the material is difficult (it’s not) but because it’s SO F*CKING BORING.3 :beatup:  Legal Letters is at equilibrium, and I’m ever-so-slightly ahead on DV Law.

Not bad, but it’s thrown me that I’m already behind in 2 classes… when just last week I was safely and substantially ahead of schedule.

Hope your respective academic years are proceeding apace and you’re still on top of your readings ;)  I’ll be using the Labor Day weekend to get fully caught up myself. Have a great night y’all!! :D

  1. About 15 of us from 6 different universities :) []
  2. Avoid King Neptune’s on Lumina Drive in Wilmington. Trust me. Let me know if you want details :sick: []
  3. And we’re doing fractions, divvying up equal shares of a net estate to an arbitary number of offspring and collaterals. Fractions. 3 semesters of Calculus? Done. Linear Algebra? Finished. Statistics? Yep, that too. Took all this high-end math for my Computer Science degree, and I’m going to be done in by fractions that I hated all the way back when I learned them in elementary school… :mad: []
