always040: Back/Shoulder soreness

Hey guys! I am a 1L. As such, I spend most of the day sitting in (non-ergonomic) chairs, or slightly hunched over, reading the pile books on the table in front of me, or slugging said pile of books around the law school. When I get stressed, my neck and shoulders (specifically where they meet) get tense, hot, and generally angry at me. So the stress of law school PLUS all this hunched over activity is needless to say doing a number on me. I have scheduled a massage next Saturday, but I am miserable in the mean time. I have been drinking a lot of water and putting heat on it at night when I can, but it doesn't seem to be helping much. Any suggestions?

I need one to take in for my Con Law final tomorrow (LAST ONE!!!!!!!)... and of course i already marked up the oe in my book. i have a handheld pocket version, but i'm afraid they'll tell be because of the annotations and other info in there with it, that's not allowed.

so, considering i'm new to this community, and it's a great distraction from con law reading... i figured i'd post a question for everyone. but here's your fair warning... it's not a particularly fun question...

how long does it take you to do your readings for class? for example... how many pages can you generally read in an hour? how long does it take you to write a case brief?

i know that every law student feels like they spend their entire life reading. but, being the slow reader i am, i think most people actually get it done much faster than i do.

anyway, that's all for now. more dumb questions later, i'm sure.

kristynlee: Brief

So, in the spirit of true 1L hell, has anyone else had the joy of just turning in their briefs? Ding dong, the witch is freaking dead! And just in time for spring break.... I, for one, am greatly enjoying poking my brain in an attempt to make the sludgy mass work again!

mathwhiz78: While we're on civ pro...

Reply to a complaint:

"Not only do I deny all the allegations in the above styled suit, I contend, with all due respect, that the plaintiff must be suffering from a condition of brown eyeballs since he is full of so much bullshit." (defendant acting pro se)

And from the court: "While the form and language of the appellant's response are less than desirable and more frank than customary, the appellant did state in short and plain terms his general denial of appellees' claims. A motion to strike the answer would have been appropriate, but none was filed."

Wheat v. Eakin, 491 So.2d 523

ex_potus: This helps move things along when you study at night ...

I'm sure it's in everyone else's Civ Pro casebook ... nevertheless:

The Court: Next witness
Ms. Olschner: Your Honor, at this time I would like to swat Mr. Buck in the head with his client's deposition.
The Court: You mean read it?
Ms. Olschner: No, sir. I mean swat him [in] the head with it. Pursuant to Rule 32, I may use the deposition "for any purpose" and that is the purpose for which I want to use it.
The Court: Well, it does say that.
The Court: There being no objection, you may proceed.
Ms. Olschner: Thank you, Judge Hanes.
(Whereupon Ms. Olschner swatted Mr. Buck in the head with a deposition.)
Mr. Buck: But Judge ...
The Court: Next witness.
Mr. Buck: We object.
The Court: Sustained. Next witness.
