"1. It fits easily in your back pocket or purse.
2. It's as cheap as one piece of paper (Because that's all it is!)
3. It opens like a book. Leading to easier to find, more organized notes.
4. The first page has a pouch, big enough to carry a business card!
5. Customizable with 'Mods' tailored to your needs.
6. It's free and fun!"
above made me think of Matt. Matt, you're needed.
below is another exercise by the same ppl:
Early in the morning on Monday, September 19, a Seattle Police Harbor Patrol boat came across a desert island floating in Lake Washington. On the island were foam rocks, a fake palm tree, a plastic crab and starfish, real coconuts, and three men in ripped-up business suits...

first day of classes today. odd, odd, odd. it still, now, with five out of six semesters finished, seems strange to me that I am in law school. but today wasn't bad. just odd. added oddness that I was there at nine in the morning, which I haven't been, not since spring of last year.Anyway at nine was "conflict of laws," which is a whole (small) class about how you pick what law applies, and which is taught by an outgoing dean (he wants to teach more.) He's very enthusiastic and made eye contact with all students including me many times. He even made me talk, which it's my policy not to do in class, but it was like he forced me to talk.
Then at about eleven was "civil rights actions," a larger class taught by the guy that taught me criminal procedure 1, which is the most useful class I ever did take in law school so far. This professor's all about the thing he says is called "legal realism," which it seems means that if you're realistic, you see that law is all about politics. So, he says we'll spend a lot of time looking at who's on the supreme court (I'll start writing it as "scotus" soon, I promise) for each case, since the ideo-logy of each justice is The Thing.

Grades got published today. I'd been waiting to worry until I checked them, so, I was (good grief) shaking as I clicked the link for each class and scrolled through to find the grade given next to my anonymous number.
I passed everything. I am so happy.
Ended up doing about as well as I've done all along, if even closer to my average (nothing too close to failing). Good news.
