La la la packing my bag for the last day of bar/bri lecture.
Boy it sure is late. That stinks, especially because I have to be awake in 3.5 hours now.
Mmmmkay what do I need to bring to class with me? Lecture outline, snack, eye drops, wallet, sunglasses.... do I want to come home after lecture? Or do I want to go to the library and study? If I go to the library I'm going to need to pack my outline book. And probably some notecards. And my computer. And ughhhh carrying that computer on the bus during rush hour in the morning is really going to suck. Maybe I should just come home after lecture. But will I get anything done? Or will I take the dog to the beach and cook lunch and dick around? Okay I should definitely go to the library after class. Or at least a coffee shop. Okay so...
In the bag - wallet, sunglasses, no rain tomorrow so umbrella comes out, outline book, computer power cord, blank notecards, pencil bag...
Where is my pencil bag?!
(Yes, I have a pencil bag. Full of highlighters and pens and pencils and white out and all the things that I NEED to get through any day, and ESPECIALLY for a day of learning.)
I've been using it all day! Where is it? Under the bed? Under the desk? Under the pile of blankets/pillows on the floor because I didn't make my bed today?! Underneath Elle?! (lots of stuff gets lost underneath Elle... it's a possibility).
Oh my God it's 3:37 AM and I can't find itttt Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. What am I going to do?! How is this even possible? I just had it before I took a bath. OMG did I bring it into the bathroom with me? Am I really losing my mind? OMGGGGGGGGGGGG it's not in the bathroom!
And then I looked down. And there it was. Inside my bag. With all of my other things, packed and ready to go.
And then I said to Elle (yes, we talk) "Elle. I'm gonna need you to go ahead and kick my ass now. I'm being a total douchebag." And Elle rolled her eyes at me, as if to say "No shit. I'm getting really sick of you, asshole. Get it together."
So I said "You're right Elle. My apologies. I promise to come up with a plan to get a study schedule under control for the next 13 days. There is no reason for incidents such as what just took place to happen again."
As if a sign from God, I get this gchat from a bar study friend.
Lindsay: so i'm watching the movie little children
b/c its on free on demand
and the guy in it has already taken the bar exam twice
and is "studying"
for the third exam
and studying=doing kate winslet
so what you're saying is
we should be banging kate winslet right now?
Lindsay: shit why not
i don't think its helping him pass though so maybe not
Lindsay: what is the magic formula?
me: for what?
Lindsay: haha ugh
me: having lots of money and being skinny
Lindsay: no thats money
well we solved that
Lindsay: but i mean for the bar exam
i am guessing caffeine and pure hope
So there ya go folks, that's pretty much all I've got. Caffeine and pure hope.
Oh, and sorry Elle, you may want to look into attending a few extra sessions of doggie daycare or Hotel de Daisy over the next 13 days.
