[Living Room – the scene before you looks much like one you would imagine on Masterpiece Theater… or Cookiepiece Theater, for that matter. Soft jazz sax-a-ma-phone hangs softly in the background air. Rae enters, old school smoking jacket on, bubble pipe in hand. She blows some bubbles playfully.]
Oh. Hi there. I didn’t see you at first. *giggle* I was just busy taking a ridiculously difficult test for several days… [twirls hair playfully]
Ok, no, seriously, though! I was just busy taking the bar exam from the 23-25th, and the whole time I was quiet leading up to that, I was studying. Yesterday, I essentially slept through, and today, now that I’m done with the kitten foster program meeting, I HAVE NO EXCUSES, so I’m posting for you.
That’s right. You. The people that I love.
Hi, Mom. Hi, Dad. 🙂
So I guess the first question that you’ll be wanting to know is how I think I did, and that answer is a stunning “not badly.”
I was enormously surprised by the fact that I did not have any seizures during the 3 days of the exam that were bad enough to make me time travel. I did on Friday! Ha! Isn’t that just like me? Throwing up after a show. Just like old times.
I lucked out with my proctor though. Boy howdy. I think I had accidentally fallen asleep during part of the MBE because I had an atonic seizure that made my head and hands drop that lasted long enough that added to my naturally occurring MS fatigue had me out. She called my name to see if I was ok and it woke me up. That lady is my lucky star. 🙂
But really, I couldn’t have asked for a better set of questions for my particular set of knowledge. We had 2 contract questions, a community property question, one on wills, one on professional responsibility, and one out of LEFT FIELD from property law. Stuff that Professor Shafiroff and I used to shoot the shit about after class even sometimes. So, I hope that what I remember from “Walks with Uncle Ira”* led me well.
This is one of those times where I think I got *just* enough accommodation. I had exactly 1 more hour per section and a private room. That’s it. I’ve had people suggest to me that I should do the 6 day test, so I have a full day to do each section, but I can’t imagine spending that much time on each part. I think I’d go insane. Then again, I was ready to stop RIGHT before she said stop each time. Arg. I need to stop thinking about it!
Anyhow, I’ve been doing much better overall, and I’m looking forward to going out to a bar tonight to celebrate my friend Jenny’s engagement!
Adam and I need to plan an engagement party too, I guess. I hadn’t even really thought about that until just now. Lots and lots to do. I’m gonna need to start getting myself organized, what with the MS Walk 2010 coming up too.
I’ve also registered a team for the walk! I got tired of MStery Walking Theater 3000, though we did a great job as a team being part of the top 400 our first year in! I’m still super stoked at how much money Alexis was able to raise in one day with those pictures. I thought it was awesome. 🙂 So, I came up with a new name. I wanted it to be silly and funny and nerdy… And you know how I love my parody… and Metalocolypse…
Wanna be a part of the coolest, most awesome-est, most bad-ass MS Walk team in the history of MS Walk teams that I’ve created yet EVER?!
JOIN CRIPPLOCALYPSE 2010!!!
(That’s “twenty-ten” for anyone who’s curious.)
Remember, you don’t have to live in the Los Angeles area to be on our team and help us fundraise! You can join the Cripplocalypse from Timbuktu, and once we’ve come up with our totally awesome t-shirt design, we will mail it to you. 🙂
Also, if getting me to dye my hair blue again will not get us up to $5,000, suggest something different! I’m always open to marketing ideas. 🙂
Here’s my personal WalkMS 2010 page!
That’s all for now! Hope you’re all having a happy Saturday!!! 🙂
*For anyone who is wondering, I think he’s an awesome professor who will never bullshit you about what he wants out of you in your writing or in your way of thinking as an attorney and if you can take a class from him you should. He’s hilarious, but more importantly, he’s never too condescending to explain something from it’s very roots. That being said I titled my notebook “Walks with Uncle Ira” as a joke because I was reading a lot of Mitch Albom at the time I was taking Ira’s class, and he’s an older man. We’d walk between Westmoreland and the Wilshire building where his office is. We’re both Jewish and our last names have the same first 3 letters, which is close enough, right? We gotta be related somehow. Professor, I hope you never see this entry, but if you do, I hope you get a good laugh at least. I mean it well. 🙂
