MTA strike: The new snow day.
The last exam I have is con law and I will not be taking it until January sometime. This is good for two reasons: First, I am the most screwed for this final out of all of them. I know the least about this class and I don't have the slightest idea of what to expect. If there is any test that I need more than 2 days to study for, it's this one. Secondly, I took the night off after my civ pro final and then proceeded to take the next day off too and go drinking that night. If by some stroke of my typical bad luck TWU and MTA solved their differences, I would have been even more screwed than I already was. That was a gamble I was willing to take and thank god it paid off.
Minus the con law final that is up in the air, I have completed my first semester of law school. I never doubted my ability to do it since i'm not the quitting kind. However i'm pretty satisfied with myself, no matter how grades turn out. I know I actually learned something this semester and now i'm halfway to completing one of the suckier years of law school. I told myself if I could survive year one, I would make it through the entire thing.
In retrospect, the semester only truly got tough when finals began to loom...and we had memos. If I can survive the appellate brief, oral argument, and finals next semester then I should be ok.
Thanks to the MTA, i'm able to go drink and relax much earlier than expected and for the first time in several weeks.
