If Kerri calls me out, I have to come out.
Basically, I am overwhelmed, exhausted, not sleeping, living off of cheez its and starbucks, stressed out of my mind, brains on fire, feel like I have been hit by a truck, and all in all, having a marvelous time.
It has just been very very hard. I go to sleep and night, and my brain races around with:
murder manslaughter negligence false light invasion of privacy due process violations bad actors in the world.
I can’t remember the next morning the cases I read the night before.
Furthermore, I have been really struggling in criminal law because frankly, my dears, I feel like all of these Mens Rea requirements are just ways for people to wiggle out of taking responsibility for their actions. I came to law school to be a gentlemen lawyer, and I feel like throwing the book at someone.
So it’s back to crim. We are studying manslaughter this week. It’s terribly exciting. If you don’t hear from me in a week, send for help.
