One week down...

One week down and many many more to go. It was not so bad, but tiring. I felt so exhausted by Wednesday. Just completely out of it. Like my mind had been running a marathon.

The professors are good. None of them are too scary, yet. There had been some stories about Professor Contracts, but he was nice the whole first week. Apparently he'll be kind of...moody sometimes and will snap at everyone. Hopefully that's not the day I'll be on call.

Professor Civ Pro is great, but Civ Pro, the subject, isn't. It's complex and confusing and I don't know. I spend today reading the about the federal civil rules, specifically rule 12, and reading the International Shoe Co. v. Washington case. Oh what joy that was. At least it was better than Pennoyer v. Neff.

Professor Lawyering talks extremely fast and the class is basically just ADR 101, which is fine by me. I haven't been working as hard to prepare for it and I know that needs to change. Fortunately it's only been one week and I'm not realizing this half way through the semester.

Today was my brother's birthday. It's so nice that he's so close to my apartment. I love it.

Also, last night there was a law school happy hour social thing. I went. I didn't notice anyone making too big of a fool of themselves, but I was mostly just focused on taking care of myself. One of the kids in the other section doesn't seem to understand the concept of tact, but I think it's more amusing than annoying. Though I seem to be in the minority...

Should be a fun, exhausting, scary year.

Oddly enough, I've found CivPro to my favorite so far.

That doesn't seem right.

Oh, International Shoe and Pennoyer! I know I once upon a time read those cases and could tell you their holdings, but now I just fondly remember their names.

idwsj, I don't think enjoying civ pro is that weird. My civ pro prof was quite interesting.
