Crazy Law School Nightmares

The countdown is on!

Guys, we’re like 4 weeks out from exams. How crazy is that?!?!

If you’re like me, exam periods are not only filled with stressful studying but stressful law school nightmares, as well. Mine has already begun.

Last week, I had this crazy dream that one of my professors gave us a pop-up exam (not a quiz…a full exam). Let the immediate freak out commence! I couldn’t even remember the course subject. I couldn’t remember if it was my Decedent’s Estates class or my Contracts class (which I hadn’t taken since my first year). It was terrible! The professor started passing out exams and, by the time she arrived at me, she had none left. Instead of finding an exam for me, she started the timer and told me she’d be back. At this point, I was literally shaking.

She eventually gave me an exam and a few moments later the timer went off. I’d answered one question and, again, I started to panic. Just as I was about to literally cry… my alarm went off.

I woke up sweating.

If this is any indication of what my exam period will be like, I’m in for a crazy ride. Stay strong out here, my friends. Christmas break is right around the bend!
