This past week, the Stud has been extremely exhausted. On Friday, I skipped work so as to be able to study for the Patent Registration Exam (also known as the Patent Bar), and to be able to participate in Wit of Mandamus IV. (Unfortunately, the Stud did not pass ... again.) Then, this week, the Stud was up until about 4am for the first few nights just to process video from Wit of Mandamus IV. On Wednesday morning, the Stud woke up with a bloody nose at the time he was supposed to be in the Criminal Courts Building. Needless to say, the Stud called in sick.
This weekend, the Stud has to attend Barristers Ball, the "law school prom", as well as memorize his submission for the competition to become the Student Commencement Speaker. Further, the Stud has both an opening statement and a closing argument to prepare and memorize for next Thursday's Advanced Trial Advocacy class.
In fact, the Stud has been so exhausted, he forgot tonight's bar review.
When they say that in third year, they "bore you to death", they failed to disclose that they never stop with the first year ("scare you to death") and second year ("work you to death") treatments. A third year student simply stops noticing those two treatments because the boredom is so intense.
The consolation is, this will all be over in about five months.
