    Unproductive again!!!
    I arrived at the library shortly after noon, armed with lunch, tons of reading, and (oops) my computer.

    It is now 1:08 p.m. I have wasted 1 hour and 8 minutes. I've read 2 pages. Literally. Out of 20. For ONE CLASS (I did the first 1/2 of this reading last week)!! Then I have at least a hundred other pages to read.

    I have things that would be fun, but imprudent, to blog about. So I'm left with nothing but a recitation of the reading that lies before me.

    It is interesting reading - I'm liking International Law more than I expected that I would, and the Security/Liberty class less than I expected I would. The other two are somewhere in the middle, with IP creeping a hair ahead of Securities.

    By the way - last night was my evening class, and the prof was there EARLY. I think we needed to walk out last week. Really and truly. Or else he'd just keep coming late. Which is 100% not okay.

    Even with him being on time last night, he wanted to keep us past 7. Someone braver than I said, "I can't stay." And then I nodded in agreement. So he said, "okay, I'll tell you what, just stay 10 more minutes for a recap ...."

    Obviously, I didn't drop the class.

    I felt like I couldn't. Future Firm told me to take this class. Dammit.

    Also, I signed up for PMBR today.

    I'm taking the 3 day class that is held one week before the bar exam.

    People said, "oh, you should take the 6 day earlier in the summer, and THEN the 3 day last minute." Others said, "if you're not doing the 6 day, you should definitely do the earlier 3 day (which is the weekEND before the 4th of July).

    I said - pshaw to the lot of you. I'm someone who does well with short term memory, it will not kill me to do the 3 day a week in advance - not if I'm already working on the material on my own. Listening to CDs while running and so forth.

    Also, my daughters are leaving on 7/5. We are going into downtown Boston for the day on 7/4, and then the next day, they leave for 5 weeks. I'm not going to spend the 3 days prior to that in a PMBR class.

    I have made these sorts of decisions all through law school, and have yet to fail something because of it. It's not like I'm saying, "I am not studying for hte bar exam."


    Obviously, I'm looking for approval of my decision.

      I give you approval. I took the 3-day the week before the bar and that was it (no way in hell was i paying for more than that). I don't actually know how much it helped me, but I know there is no point in doing either the earlier 3 day or the six day. waste of money (even for the firm).

      A woman after my own study habits. No worries. Play to your strengths and ignore the tsk, tsking of others who either want you to do it their way OR intimidate/guilt you.
