Guess what? I've got a fever. And the only prescription is more multistate BAR exam questions.

So studying for the BAR sucks, sort of. The only reason it isn't as bad as I thought it would be is because I thought I'd be putting more time into it.

Here are ten observations for Weeks 1 and 2:
  1. Three students at BarBri's Boalt Hall location already admitted to the hospital with respiratory failure; diagnosed with "Black-letter Lung."
  2. Gatorade tastes good at 8:30am.
  3. That feeling great after your BarBri lecturer made everything seem so easy has nothing to do with his or her skill as a lecturer, but everything to do with them ignoring finer distinctions in the law and tricky subject matter -- you know, the material actually tested on a regular basis.
  4. Lebron is in the playoffs . . . and I've lost another few days of study time.
  5. Less than 50% performance on "Introductory Drills" from BarBri versus consistent 65% performance on "advanced" questions. What gives?
  6. Gatorade tastes good at 8:30pm.
  7. Getting the same question wrong twice is not a freak occurrence.
  8. Getting the same question right twice is a freak occurrence.
  9. Carnation Instant Breakfast makes me gassy.
  10. Recurring nightmare that the Bar Examiners will finally unveil questions featuring choice "(D) Some of the above."

the torts guy was pretty funny, but yeah, he kinda skipped over the important stuff.

Hey, how come you capitalize all the letters of "BAR?" It sort of scares me.

It's like the visual equivalent of an orchestra hit in a film score.
