Focus, focus, focus

This is where I spend my days.

These are what I spend my days reading.

This is how I spend my evenings. In PJs, studying at my computer.

I have final exams for the next two weeks. In law school, your grade is based entirely on how well you do on the final exam. There are no quizzes. There is no homework. There is no extra credit. Needless to say, this next two week period will be incredibly stressful. The Law is all-consuming this time of year.

But being completely honest, and this should surprise no one, despite all my griping and wailing and complaining, I get a major rush taking exams. There is just something about the proctor saying "Begin," jamming in earplugs to silence the drone of fifty other students clickety-clacking away on their keyboards, and feeling the seal of the exam packet tearing open. It just gets my blood pumping. Its the same feeling I had even in grade school when standardized tests were administered where we had to fill in the little bubble sheets with our Number Two pencils.

Sheesh, I just re-read this post and I am mortified at how nerdy I am. Oh well, there you have it world - another confession of my complete geekiness. Wish us luck!

  2. Wow that must get really boring reading the Federal Appendix all day long. Which volume are you in now? I've heard volume 51 is a BEAST!!

  3. Haha, you are funny Paul. The Federal Appendix represents THE LAW and you know it. But sheesh, if you read up through volume 51, I'm impressed.
