Rant of the Day
What on Earth? Totally thought I'd failed my statutory class. 3 issue-spotter questions with the 3rd one literally being an ez pz freebie for all of us. I must've written maybe 8-10 sentences for the first question which was worth about 30% of the entire final. I guess I really kicked ass on the 2nd essay by spotting all the crucial issues (that one was a whopping 50% of the final!). Two study buddies told me they hadn't dug in as far as I had for that question.
But then again, my friend's class outline saved my arse. I owe him big time. My sense of duty compels me to return the favor in the future in any way possible. I'll certainly be thanking him. Then there's the fact that this prof was a total flake and no one "got" the class. The fact that I got that outline last minute and the fact that I hated that class shows me the Big Guy up above really was watching over me.
Still dunno what happened, but I'm certainly relieved. GPA jumped by about 0.2 from last semester which isn't bad, but teaches me (1) I need to limit myself as much as I can to take-home exams and papers as I tend to take really good notes and still do ok in spite of my minimum effort spent on them somehow and (2) I can't keep on relying on this amount of luck. My ISTJ tendency to rely on the advice of others and weigh information logically really helped me pull the grades I'd been aiming for. But I gotta take this up to the next level and up my game. Starting July, in between sending out apps, I'll be chilling at Starbucks with my notebook and supplements and relearning how to take a dang exam.
EDIT: Posted a much shorter version of this account on law school forums and got a PM that ran along the lines of "The class was truly horrible." He's really smart and possibly transferring to a much higher ranked school, so I'm going to assume he did better anyway, haha!

Uncharacteristic whine fest: My internet was out all day yesterday. It was terrible! I curled up on the edge of my bed in the fetal position. Some thumb sucking may have been involved.
My Dell mini has a virus that I have been trying to get rid of all weekend. Think I might just have to reformat the damn thing.
So much for a very much needed relaxing weekend. And this week is starting off with a business trip. Fun.
Yeah, I'll take some cheese with my whine, thanks for asking....

My Rant of the Day
I just read through part of the Reddit thread on secret confessions, and I have to say that some of the posts I read disturbed me to the point of making me feel a bit sick inside. Before I continue, I will warn everyone NOT to search for and read through that thread. It's not for the faint of heart.
You had the usual posts about men and women being too afraid to tell their families about their sexual orientation. You also had the one guy whose father was allegedly once the #3 drug lord of America. The story about the guy who got ambushed by five men in an alley, stabbed three of them, and managed to kill one was strangely admirable to me.
But one post really disturbed me, then left me morally shaken inside. I'd really like your thoughts on it because it really made me wonder WTF was on this guy's mind. [Warning, don't read on, it's not for the faint of heart, I even redacted grimey details from that link on purpose]
My Christian morals may have a part in how I felt, but it's more so my own personal visualization of what's probably happening in that relationship after what happened (note that random joe and gf have met up several times).
And no, I'm 25.
That deserved a bolded, red warning? Surely, the actual post included some other key details, grimey or not. Care to link it so we can decide for ourselves?
