A Roundhouse Kick to the Mind

And that's one down, three to go folks. I took the night off tonight, but I have a lot to do over the weekend. Two finals in 4 days. Barely any time in between. It's going to be a long week. The one day off until the grand-pop of them all: torts.

Every time I think about the test today I get nervous. And it's already over. The pressure leading into that thing was nuts.

And the car broke down on the way to the test (luckily it started again). And a fire alarm went off in the middle of the exam. Both were examples of that phenomenon where your brain attempts to deny reality. Where you actually say to yourself: "This can't be happening." I've had that feeling when I've gotten into a car accident or when I broke a window when I was a kid.

My civ pro prof, when asked about how in-depth any discussion should go, is fond of saying: "don't you want to fire every arrow in your quiver?" (Answer: Yes. Into you.)

I fired every arrow; I just hope I was firing at the right target.

Allow me to mitigate. I do not hate my civ pro prof.

Though I do hate it when he's evasive.

Anyone ever heard of an anonymous bailment? Only people in my property class I think. It's not in nay books on the subject. It seems to be my prop prof's pet term.

Bah. Humbug.

Sure, I've heard of an anonymous bailment. I spotted one swimming in the river just earlier today.

You're already talking like a lawyer: "Allow me to mitigate." Also, you're using a lot of abbreviations.

Just an obso.

Contracts final tomorrow. (LaM., I would normally just write Ks.)

I have no idea how I'll do. Isn't that amazing? I am as prepared for this exam as I reasonably could be, no the material as well as anyone and feel I have it mastered, and I have no idea how I'll do on the exam tomorrow. And I have no idea how I did on civ pro. I think I did well on propert, but who knows really.

After next Tuesday, the exam pressure will be released, and the wait for grades will begin.

I have to do Christmas shopping at some point. After next tuesday, after next tuesday. That's my new mantra.

I can't believe I wrote that I "no" the material...

It is late and I did just take Ny-Quil.
