Exams, Round 7

Yesterday was the last class of my last Fall quarter. I'm a little sad- I feel like I've completely missed it. I'm only in two classes, one of which is a seminar where our final is to be treated by our professor to brunch at The Peninsula hotel tomorrow. So I'm not too worried about that one. My other class, International Law, has a real final in 8 days. I haven't read for this class since October 3rd, the night before all this drama started. I did make myself attend, so I have pretty good notes- even if I have no idea what they mean. For the first time this quarter I am in the library. I'm surrounded by my casebook, course packet, printed-out class notes, laptop, and a big cup of tea. I am ready to begin acting like a real law student and trying to care about this exam.

And the person in the library carrel next to me is snoring. Rather loudly. If this was JP at night I'd be hitting him in the arm, ordering him to wake up, informing him of the offensive snoring, and then making him roll over. (Yes, I could just make him roll over without the waking, but I feel he should be aware that I'm not sleeping). However, I don't know this person, so I'm pretty sure I can't hit him in the arm. Argh! Snoring has got to be one of the most grating noises in the world. Maybe I'll take an early lunch and when I return, he'll be up from his nap.


  1. You are nicer than me. I kick my husband till he quits snoring or rolls over. I hope your studying goes well. I'm sure you will do great.

  2. Not to be a pain - there was a DCFS worker who posted as anonymous on the last post - great advice. Its nice to see someone from within thrying to help!

  3. I shove my boyfriend over in bed while I bark, "SNORING! SNORING!" I'm his snoring alarm.

    And, on a more serious note, I'm holding you guys in my prayers until all this is over. You've been so strong for Landon.

    I get a little nostalgic for that exam study hunkering down around this time of year. Is it too annoying for me to say "enjoy it"? Probably is.

    Good luck finishing this quarter and this nightmare -- don't lose your indignation!!

  5. I'm not as nice as you. I would be very very tempted to go to his table and rap on the wood until he woke up, and tell him that's he's snoring.

    It's a scandal.

  6. I'd "accidentally" drop a very heavy casebook onto your desk and then say, "Oops" and sit back and watch him sputter and shake into life. ;)

    Man, I want a professor who will take us to brunch in lieu of a final!

  7. I vote for the same treatment pt-lawmom recommends -- a loud drop of a book or an "accidental" bump on your way past him and then a kind "excuse me" with a smile.

    Good luck!

  8. I'd intentionally tort him. Like kicking the chair out from under him. But I'm pregnant and hostile, so you probably shouldn't take my advice. ;)
