Same ole same ole

It's only the second day of classes, and I feel as if I've been thrown back into the middle of a semester already. I guess it's back to the same old grind. I'm still trying to snap out of my extreme indifference from last semester (of course, given my grades I really can't afford that attitude again).

So I came back to a snow-covered Iowa, only to wake up to the ice today. I couldn't even walk out of my parking lot without falling twice because of the thick slab of ice covering everything. It's like trying to ice skate on a slant. Even walking to school was slippery. One day I'm gonna fall and break something, and then I won't be able to keep up in school.

My contract professor actually thanked us for coming to school despite the ice.

As a 3L who has taken a few classes with Prof. Wetlaufer... let me give you some advice. He's an excellent teacher (though certainly a non-traditional). You will learn some about CivPro, but more importantly he teaches you much about the roles of argument in law and teaches you to think in a more sophisticated manner about cases qua human artifacts (decisions may be a better word choice, as decisions connotes the human element that goes into crafting the opinion).

Give him a break. You'll like him.
