Two Days 'Til Mental Health

We just had two days off for President's Day (Why? Who cares... we didn't have to go to class!) which we colloquially call "Mental Health Days" (seemingly because we have had to slog through three of the dreariest and coldest months in the continental United States all while reading about the Rule Against Perpetuaties, or in my case Piercing the Corporate Veil, which tends to make you a little peeky).

Now, we're back, and I'm experience a decided "Post-Mental Health Day Let Down." Four days off is awesome, but the first day back SUCKS. Stress will be building over the next few weeks. Here's why:
1) I (along with my fellow "Research Editor") need to start planning this year's Petition for the ickle firsties1;
2) Last cite check for Law Review is due next Friday... by itself this wouldn't be a huge deal... BUT
3) The TORT musical starts NEXT Thursday - Holy crap! How can that be? That means next week is dress rehearsal week, and reading for class probably won't exist.

Blogging may be sparse.

1 Oh yeah, I'm a Research Editor for next year on Law Review, which means I get to help prepare the Petition for getting onto journals for next year. So, if, come what May, you like the topic and are happy with how you did on the petition, you can thank me... if you don't like the topic, then that was the other Research Editor's fault.

Do you recommend Law Review? Or recommend running far away?

Law Review is a lot of work, but I think it is worth it.

Keep in mind that no matter what, you have to fulfill your 2nd Year writing requirement somehow; either doing a lot of work writing a Not and cite checking for Law Review, or some other jornal, or doing a lot of work writing a brief (or two briefs) and doing oral arguments for one of the moot courts.

I figured that Law Review would suck, but so would moot court (and judging by my friends who are on National Moot Court and IP Moot Court, moot court does suck), and at least with law review, you get the great line on your resume and great networking opportunities.

But, that's just my opinion. I'm sure other people think Law Review is aweful, and others that think the moot courts are the best thing ever.

Way to go, Law Review Research Editor--I didn't know you had to write a "Not" for Law Review, or that it could be "aweful." (We moot court people would NEVER make such a careless mistake.)

Two days off for president's day? Wow. You're lucky. We got nothing.
