So don't judge me too harshly, please. I'm trying to learn, I really am. But to give you a sense of just where my baseline is, here's a transcript...I was gchatting with a mutual friend of Cat & yours truly today:
me: Geezus. Ordering of citations?!?! RIDICULOUS.
J [HLS student]: haha
I get e-mails about that!
me: I didn't even know it was a thing until last week.
J: "Dear journal, juts reminding you that this is one of the most commonly neglected rules."
J: ordering of signals as well
I figured that out just TODAY.
J: it's such bs!
me: I am such a bad law student.
I am going to be such an incompetent summer.
me: I can't even Bluebook.
me: but now, with my "I know how to order stuff" knowledge, that's like the only rule I'm honoring.
it's zero-sum, man.
and ordering cases? whoa!that was mind-blowing!...
I'm pretty much gonna be like "sorry, people, I'm a bad Bluebooker."
"Don't assume anything I said is correct."
J: Good idea, SB.
