You know the drill. It’s finals time, and when you’re not wallowing in regret and self-loathing, you’re avoiding studying. Not in cool fun ways like going out to dinner or seeing a movie, but more in pathetic home-bound ways where you tell yourself that any moment now, you’ll start studying. For sure. Promise. Right after you do everything else you can possibly think of, no matter how boring or unpleasant it might be.
It isn’t like you’re a particularly neat person. Hell, you’re a law student, so you’re probably downright slovenly. But when finals time rolls around, suddenly it is time to vacuum under the couch, wash the baseboards, and clean the oven. You don’t even know how to clean your oven, but it is still better than working on the 24-hour take home final your estates and trusts prof assigned.
