I'm about to delve into catching up on an entire month of BA. Yeah, so, I've been slacking (surprise, surprise). My level of apathy in that class is beyond reason. I actually care about all my other classes this semester, which is incredible. I really like my other classes. Even Con Law II, which I was afraid was going to be bad, because the professor seemed like a bit of a douche at the beginning. But he's actually a really good teacher, and doesn't spend the whole time Socratizing people and instead, he just goes over the material.
I hate the Socratic method. I think it's complete rubbish. Maybe for those of you who go to top law schools with highly intelligent people, you might get something out of a class where mostly your classmates talk rather than the professors. Here at Mediocre Law, nuh uh. And I fully admit, I'm one of those people bringing down the intelligence of the discussion during class. Oh, I can speak quite well, most of the time. But when I'm put on the spot, I tend to freeze like a deer in headlights, and lord only knows what sort of Sarah Palin-esque word salad is going to come out. I'm fine if I volunteer, and I usually try to do so in classes where that will get me participation points and prevent me from getting called on. But ick, I hate the Socratic method. Just stop dicking around and tell me what I need to know for the exam.
So, on this rainy, but still reasonably warm, afternoon, yours truly is curling up on the couch with a soy chai latte and a ton of BA materials. Tonight I'm going to a classmate's house for zombie movie night. I'm definitely not a fan of zombie movies, but said I would attend if one of the movies shown is Shaun of the Dead. I'm a British TV geek, and a big fan of Simon Pegg. I really wanted to see How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, but I don't think it even showed here. Supposedly it opened two weeks ago and I have never seen it listed. I guess I have to wait for the DVD.
