He said not to visit TV Tropes, that site will ruin your life... just like studying Art History or Criminal Law.

Well, I've had to study criminal law. It was my last exam before having everything I needed for my bachelor's papers (which, by the way I still haven't gotten thanks to the very same exam - I got it through too late). It's huge, it's boring (for the most part) and it was a pain in the proverbial arse.

It was only the third time that I got it through this spring, I had the pleasure of finding out that I had failed the previous one (which I was confident at passing) on holiday in Rome. A nice little addition to the relaxation there, especially since the redo was within a week, so instead of coming home to vacation, I came home to a week of rather intense re-reading. Of (at that point) really irritating material.

Thank god that's over now (it wasn't that bad at first, but on the third time it was like, well, this: ).

Size:  6.1 KB It must have been so hard memorizing all those law things. They make it look so easy on those TV shows don't they?

Even though I enjoy studying history of art very much, from time to time I still get fed up with memorizing all the artists, and describing their artworks Name:  sigh.gif

Much like Plato, I find art to be useless.

In ancient Egypt, cats were worshipped because the Egyptians thought they were funny. These vast cat-heads were built underground, and seen by no-one.

You may drink your weak lemon drink now - or you may save it for later.

Wow, I got a , a and a from SweetDalilah this month. I wonder what she'll give me for poking Giligan's buttocks with my newly-sharpened horns?

I agree, we have to do something about the Beamin' Deamon. It's going too far now!

Luckily we don't have to memorize actual laws or anything (or, you know, lithanies of text or anything). It's more about the governing principles and knowing what is applicable and all that. The law texts are available in law collections which are almost always allowed in exams.

And of course, law on TV is worlds apart from law in reality

If you really do it, I'll give you a big hug, and a kiss
