There are some topics that I really, really hope will get tested--for example, I am really hoping we get a family law essay or a wills essay. If we get a federal diversity jurisdiction question, I'm pretty much, mentally, going to be sitting on the beach sipping a margarita while I answer it because those questions are SO easy (I could teach that to someone entirely untrained in law in a matter of 5 minutes). Thankfully, there aren't really any subjects that I feel like I would totally have no clue about if they asked. I mean, I would much rather not have an essay about property or criminal procedure, but I feel like I could still write a semi-intelligent response if we did. But I feel like I at least HAVE A PLAN for this last week, which is half the battle. And I got groceries and gas and cooked for the week today, so hopefully my personal life will be handled for the next week. It takes me about 3 hours to get through each subject outline, but I've already done a bunch of them in the last few days, so I think I can tackle them soon enough. I started saving a fair amount of time when I realized I don't need to always put in my notes, "Under Georgia law . . . " I told myself, well of course it's under Georgia law, it's not like I'm taking the Montana bar exam!
Well, time to review some more multiple choice questions and review annulment of marriages in GA. Terrible things happen in these multiple choice questions, y'all, I'm telling you what. I'm like, who thinks of this stuff? For example, bears chase people, hikers fall into canyons, people drop cigarettes inadvertently into gas leaks on the ground and cause explosions, people get drunk and do lots of stupid things, people ask others to commit crimes and then realize that the person they asked is actually a cop, gravel flies off the back of people's trucks and onto the roadway and causes accidents, defendants run around the courtroom in a frenzy until they have to be restrained, a beekeeper's wild bee colony gets loose and terrorizes the community, etc., etc. This question about liability for keeping animals on your property was so absurd it just made me burst out laughing: "An eccentric couple kept a kangaroo in their backyard. The kangaroo was always gentle and had never hurt anyone. But one day, a visitor came to see the couple, and the kangaroo attacked the visitor!" Well, of course it did--it's not a pet, eccentric couple!
More to come soon--I'm off to go figure out why, even though C is technically a correct answer, D is a "better" one. Almost there.
