Grades are trickling in. God I'm terrified. I did get one back (Wills and Trusts), and it was good! My best law school grade so far. And I did feel good about that exam. But somehow that only increases the fear, because I'll be that much more disappointed when/if the rest of my grades don't live up. You see how I constantly keep myself from getting hopeful? Ah, the torture that law school renders on one's psyche.
Everyone I talk/IM with is immediately like, "Get any grades back?" And then we report back as each one comes in. Checking the grade post obsessively, fearfully.
I took my friendly commenter's advice and got myself a bottle of cheap wine. Cheers!
