The first thing you learn about in law school is sleep deprivation. I kid you not. I think they should teach a class on it, call it AWAKE 101 .They would serve coffee and sugary snacks and there would be no chairs. Why no chairs? Because the second thing they teach you in law school is how to sleep anywhere possible. I fell asleep for a short 5 minute nap on my computer yesterday. I have no shame. It was magical. So in AWAKE 101, I would not be able to have a chair. I would just figure out a way to pass out in it. I'm not sure what the exam would be. But it would not involve sleeping. Or maybe they would hop you up on mountain dew and make you try and sleep. I would ace it. See above :)
I have always been a sleeper. Always. I would consider it a hobby. But during the week I have discovered how to run on about 6 hours of sleep. I usually need about 8. 2 hours is serious business for me. I'm not saying that 6 is bad. But I am saying that it is difficult for me, the person who needs sleep, to operate. Because, since I forgot to mention it, getting to sleep is hard, waking up is hard, and having a good, uninterrupted, slumber is rare. I almost never wake up feeling refreshed. Unless its the summer. And I woke up at 11. This 6 hours of sleep is hard fought, and rarely fantastic.
But I digress.
Right now 6 hours of sleep would be friggin awesome. I havent gone to bed before 2 in a couple of days and I wake up at 7. Last night I went to sleep around 3. AWESOME. And tonight, I plan on staying up as long as it takes to finish this paper. Read: I plan to stay awake all night.
I should also inform you, the day before sleeping are freaksihly busy. Work Work Work. If I got paid based on the hours worked on a brief or studying for an exam, I would be stupid stupid rich. But alas, I do it all for free. One day I'll get paid
How do you keep yourself awake during these times? Caffeine. In all shapes and sizes. Soda, coffee, tea. Right now water is a four letter word.
Law students should buy stock in it. Or any other caffeine based drink that gets you through the day. For boys I see a pattern that it would be those MONSTER drinks. They smell so bad. Like smarties, ground up, stirred in water and fructose.
OMG SNIFFLER IS BACK. SERIOUSLY MAN. I KNOW YOU'RE NOT THAT SICK. whew. sorry. he's killing me.
OK. Enough complaining for the day.
Meaning: I will not discuss the outcome of the election. :) You're welcome.
