Don't forget Supreme Commander. Wasn't that 2007?
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Don't forget Supreme Commander. Wasn't that 2007?
2008 - present, the semesters of Mgoblog. I don't have a chance.
Yeah, I've been specifically holding off on buying any new games until after exams are over. Not sure it's a strategy that's working. I just find other ways to procrastinate (gotta get three stars on every Angry Birds level!).
Angry birds is going to get me fired and divorced.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, back up there buddy. You can play NFL Blitz on your laptop?! I've been looking for a copy for my PS1, to no avail.
place has so many emulators and such... I don't know if it has any legit ps1 versions...
But it got me pokemon red on my macbook for winter break last year... me and my roommate went back to our own hometowns for break and had a compitition to see who could have better pokemon when we got back.
And btw NBA 2k11 is currently killing me with the finals stuff. The "My Player" is too awesome to pass up.
Awesome, thanks! I'm not partial to any of the PS1 versions or anything, it's just that that's the only console I own.
http://roms.zophar.net/ is the best site I have found.
I currently have a Sega Genesis, Nintendo NES, Super Nintendo, N64, Sega Dreamcast, and Playstation 1 emulators on my computer....Sega genesis and PS1 were the systems I had growing up and I have the most games for those. I just downloaded the others for the classics....One of the better decisions I made
Also, for playstation 1...epsxe is the emulator you should look for...the best by far
It was Super Buster Bros. on my SNES. I remember one time when I had to leave the system on to keep my game alive (no memory cards or internal memory), and a girl (friend of a friend) who came in turned it off. I was livid and almost kicked her out.
Super Mario World got a lot of my time, too. It is and always will be the best game ever.
Oh, sweet Jesus they are awful. I'm sitting here trying to crank out an analysis of about 5 Supreme Court cases, and I want to die. All I want to do is sleep!!!
Try preparing for a trial that your career hangs on. Trust me, preparing your law school stuff is far less pressure packed. You may want to sleep. With this stuff, you can't. Life is the real test bro.
Never heard of it and don't want to know. Every day is sunny and 85 degrees here in-house. It's much more fun to direct outside lawyers than to be out-house and be the directed!
Big game hunting is where its at. Might be sleepless, but nothing beats that adrenaline rush when you take someone down and that look in your opponents eyes when they know you own them.
Can't do that on the gridiron with the grays coming into my hair but this is the next best.
Can't relate to the law thing, but I definitely feel you on re: the pressure. I happen to think that only people who want the pressure (or thought they could handle it) have to deal with it, but when you're there...finals, ain't shit.
Still, can't argue with the OP; Finals do, indeed, suck balls.
Yeh my life depends on these. My work ethic is about as good as our defense right now. On academic probation, and if my average doesn't stay close to what it is I'm gone from school.
I think it's time to log off
I'm trying to study for my first exams as a 1L. I've never looked forward to a x-mas break so much in my life.
There is nothing like the feeling you will have once you finish that last 1L first semester exam. You will not know what to do for about 10 minutes, then you will start drinking. Having all that stress just disappear is incredible.
The worst part about law school is the abrupt (!!!!) end of the excitement of graduating when you realize that nothing matters if you don't pass the Bar. You will never study harder or stress about any one thing more than during your summer after graduating,
Is it just me or are half the posters on here lawyers/law students?
Engin-100 Blimp section sucks... Well, it's fun but I like not being in the lab for 20+ hours a week.
That class was great and the final was pretty easy. Who is your communications insturctor for that course? I had Olson
You actually liked Olsen?
Hell hath no fury...
I mean, wtf is a short sale anyway? I really don't fucking care, hence me writing this post right now and not going over my outline.
We spent quite a while trying to figure out how to deal with short sales. It has something to do with the difference between recourse and non-recourse debt.
Get past the 1L and it's all downhill from there. You learn the game, how to spot the issues, apply the law and, most importantly, how to answer questions without really answering. Keep your head up and just think - soon you'll be done and have tens of thousands of dollars in loans to pay off and you'll be wishing like he'll you could turn back the clock!
The one peice of advice - with most law professors, you are just hunting for points during a typical blue book exam. If you have no idea what the answer is, just try saying as many correct things as possible, present all sides of the issue and try to gather as many points on the questions as you can. Then find a question you know the answer to and kill it. BTW - the essay section of most bar exams works like this too. (This information is 14 years out of date. You still use blue books, right? Please tell me you still use blue books!)
Good luck. You will make it through. Try not to drink too much after the last exam. Actually, forget that last part.
My law school uses a computer program that creates a word document to type your answer into while blocking access to the internet and any other program during the exam. I can write my answers a lot faster than I can into the bluebooks, so I don't use them any more.
As for the drinking, I'm done on Friday and on Saturday I'll be at the Big Chill. My goal is to be drunk enough to not feel the cold.
you seen the crows everywhere? givin me the heebiejeebies
if you havent, walk around the diag at around 5:30 and look in the trees
Saw that last weekend and it looked like there were still leaves in the trees.
It's always like that this time of year in AA, however the crows in the cemetery are creepier. I've always wondered where the hell they all come from.
while walking to a game at yost, the damn crows/ravens were in the trees all along McKenzie as it funnels everyone to yost. all I heard were the plop, plop, plop of bird guano on the sidewalk and street. Everyone was trying to avoid being poo'd on.
Nothing like walking down the sidewalk wondering why its raining in december and then you get a sinking feeling as you realize its not rain.
Lived on 817 McKinley, junior year and it was by far the best time in college. My friends used to drive by the grave yard with all the crows and honk their horn to get them to fly, then laugh at all the poor people on the sidewalk go running from the poop rain. Ahhh what bastards, ha!
I've been at it all day. Re-reading Socrates' Apology, Rousseau's Discourses, Locke's 2nd Treatise of Government, Machiavelli, Bacon, Nietzsche...its never ending. Tomorrow it will all be over though, and I make the trip up 75 from Atlanta for the Big Chill.
You better not be complaining about a philosophy final. I'll take away your man card.
But the apology doesn't really fit...
John U. Bacon?
That's all good reading there. Just put yourself into the historical context of the writer and it's crystal clear.
At least The Leviathan isn't on there. Goddamn Hobbes.
I love the material, and its for a Political Ideologies course.
Luckily I have a professor that teaches each author as if he were the author and fully embraces their view in teaching the material. Makes for a fun class.
