See, the name is rather self explanatory...

the bluebook is your friend...so not true!

in one hour my fellow 1Ls and I will be sitting down for our second and final quiz for legal methods. Now I recall my professor, who, by the way had a baby like 6 weeks in and stuck us with a second prof for the semester (which is a whole 'nother issue I won't get into right now), said they moved the memo up from being due after thanksgiving break, which would have been a wonderful time to have it due, IMO, to the day before break started, so we could be good and done with methods at thanksgiving and be able to focus on the finals they have decided this year to give 1 day apart rather than 3-4 apart like every year before. Instead of this statement, which I have verified with multiple people in my class that she did say something to that effect, and as there is no counterargument here, why do we have a quiz 5 days before our first final? And furthermore, why were we required to attend class at 9am on Tuesday? So here we sit bunched in the library, outlined out, and for a nice break, we are going to have you puke back all the research and information you didn't use but had to learn for this class, where you didn't get to evaluate your prof, cause you had 2 and might confuse them, cause we are only law students and names and faces are something we just are not good with, and then flip through the bluebook, which is aptly named, cause its blue, to find out how all the cites you used for your memo were somehow deficient.

This has to be some sort of Intentional Infliction of Emotion Distress that I definately did not consent to, implicitly or explicitly.....

calling all wikipedia geeks

part of my civil procedure final is on the novel, i know, what about your casebook, don't worry we got those questions too, our professor was nice enough to manage to add non-case reading to his syllabus while not taking out any of the other readings (so really, its just extra work), but back to the novel A Civil Action (which i could cite per bluebook, but that might induce my screaming to get louder) I read this book over the summer as it was on the list of recommended readings for incoming 1Ls...now I don't have time to reread the whole thing, cause there are other things to do, like, say hang out in the library til 1am memorizing the Restatements (Second) of Contracts (once again, if you ask me to bluebook, I will reach over the internet and strangle you). So being the ever resourceful student, I began looking for supplements, i.e., cliffnotes, sparknotes, essaysforsale.com, etc...i found nothing...(seriously cliffs notes, i relied on you in high school, where did the love go?)...So I turned to my other goto cite, Wikipedia. Now, usually it doesn't let me down, but the page for A Civil Action, it is just sad, there isn't even a real plot synopsis. Who would do this....this is my need, can we trace if anyone, such as my professor, has changed this entry to remove things i would need...

Apparently its cold and flu season...

25 days until exams start and a girl in Torts starts coughing today?! OK, I have managed to make it all semester without getting deathly ill and if those germs floating around after her coughing fit get me sick I will seriously hurt someone...time to load up on vitamins and Purell and skin moisturizer, because apparently moisturized skin repels germs:)
