I finally added this fantastic blog, the author frequently leaves comments which I love. Every time I go to do the same on his, the content is funny, informative and interesting, so interesting I go to check it out and forget to comment. Sorry bout that.

Also added is Survive Law School, if the content is not making me laugh it probably given me something to think about (procrastinate with). They should post more. That simple.

In other news:

You got to be freaking kidding me?!

After getting home from 9 hours in kitchen Mr. Ovum jumps on me and informs me that he/we are moving to London for 2012. There are a number or problems with this, namely financial (on my part, I am student. I think he forgets that I am not on the 65k a year he is). Even if by some miracle it does happen it would effectively be like this year all over again as a 1L but worse. Yes the Australian system is a CL system, yes it was only in 1986 appeals to the Privy Council were ended, yes many watershed decisions are English cases. I still think it would be worse because in the subjects I would have to take to keep my graduation date on track there will be assumed knowledge of the law, law different to the one I am learning in. If I can make it happen $$ I will go no doubt, but wow what a scary concept.

Half way there.

Torts and Crim B exams done.

Crim: I walked out of that exam shaking with anger, fear, hate and without my sense of humor. All I want is a 51% overall. I do not want to go through that again. Did not help that I was busting for 70% of it. I tried to find the gents before the exam but the whole building seemed to only have ladies. Furious. On top of that I spent 5 minutes too long on the first two questions, at some points I heard people shuffling paper and I thought 'can't be that time, they must just be looking for a section in the code'. Wrong. I was 10 minutes short on the last question, epic fuck up.

Torts: :-D Issues were crystal clear, timing was perfect, notes worked really well. I walked out with a smile from ear to ear, most people did. Almost made the Crim exam less depressing.

  1. lol - that sounds like I paid you to say all of that about my blog ;-) but thanks! And thanks for following! :-)

    I've ran a bit short on exams before - things tend not to turn out as badly as you fear at the time. I'm sure you'll be fine.

    Good luck for your remaining exams.

  2. We all know Michael paid you for that endorsement :)

    All kidding aside, good luck on your exams. I take it the Sea Monkeys have not been trained yet to take them for you?
