Ok, got the first memo back. I really would not recommend waiting until the very last minute possible to write the paper. Let's just say that after I excise all the paragraphs marked for deletion by the professor, my paper is now half its original length. Well, I'm not going to be a bonehead and bitch about my own stupidity, I did expect this exact scenario.
On the other hand, I just may finally be getting used to my professors (it's about time), so maybe I won't quake with fear from getting called on. So far, I have to say that I've been really lucky in dodging the bullet thus far this semester. That's not to say that I like the subjects any better, but at least I can semi-anticipate some of the questions the professors will ask.
Oh, oh. Totally love civ pro today. I can't wait to get the professor's flash cards now. The ones he read in class today were hilarious. Here's one:
PROFESSOR reading from card: The lawyer who assumes that there is one right and certain answer to legal questions is...
(Turns card over)
PROFESSOR: Naive, misguided, and all too often a loser.
CLASS: (Big laugh)
PROFESSOR: I mean literally a loser in court!! Though she may be a perfectly fine person!
CLASS: (More laughs)
