I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! 

For me, it’s been not-so-enjoyable. Thanksgiving was nice, although I did do some work on my brief that evening. Black Friday involved five hours of working at Bath and Body Works, and then more work on my brief, along with a mild freak out. 

Today is the day where everything needs to come together. It seems like many of my classmates are on the finishing touches, and here I am with one whole section of my argument that hasn’t been written yet! Yikes! I pretty much know what I’m writing for this argument, I have the quotes and different examples picked out…now it’s just a matter of writing it! After I finish this section, I want to rework my introduction and one of the other sections, and add to the last section. Not a lofty goal or anything...Our brief was due on Monday, and the deadline was extended to Wednesday. However, I have the background section of my law review piece due on Thursday, so really, this brief needs to be done by Monday. My hope is that I can get my rest of it written today, and then be able to play around with it a bit more tomorrow, and then have it ready to turn in on Monday. Then, I will spend the next three days doing even more research and writing for law review, and once that is done, I can shift my focus back to my impending final exams. 

First things first though, get this argument written…
