I had a true moment of hyper-ventilation type of anxiety this morning as my daughter so cheerfully pointed out to me that i have 2 weeks before I can play with her at the zoo.

Two weeks. I'm really torn now that I'm facing that. On the one hand, I'm tired, I'm cranky, I miss my family, and I'm sick to death of doing this all day, everyday. On the other, two weeks so does not seems like enough time to get everything into my head that I need to. There is too much. I'm acknowledging as I write outlines now that I'm not putting in as much detail about some of the smaller issues as I was a week ago. It's a nod to the shortness of time and the finiteness of my memory. And it's scary. Because I have to accept that if that issue comes up on the test (I'm really thinking essays here), I will forego those points. And I'm not sure how many points I'm going to be able to forego and still get the job done.

I think you're going to be fine. You've put in a ton of effort already and know more than you think you do. I think we're getting to the point where self-confidence is more important than anything else.

You can get a lot of points by just spotting the right issues. You can pass an essay by stating the wrong law. If you've studied hard, you're not going to fail because you didn't memorize enough law. If you fail it will be because you misread something, or failed to spot something major, or misbubble. So just stay as calm as you can and try to memorize as much as you can. No one can memorize everything.
