I've done a whole lot of sleeping, eating, and drinking since Wednesday, which I expected. I went back to work on Friday... I can't afford to not be at work. I only work three days a week, so it's fine. I am just trying not to fall asleep at my desk right now.
So as for how the actual bar exam went:
I thought that the essays were really hard... way harder than July. The fact patterns seemed longer and the questions were way more involved... and they tested Administrative Law. I don't even know what the hell admin law is. I didn't even realize that the question WAS admin law until people were talking about it after the test. I thought it was a civil procedure question. So that's awesome. Not.
I thought that the MBE (the 200 multiple choice questions) was easier this time. The fact patterns seemed shorter which makes it much easier for this ADHD lawyer to be. Ha.
Tomorrow I plan on getting some resumes sent out and re-starting my job search. Broke doesn't even begin to describe my current financial situation... not to mention I need to do something with my life. Only working 18 hours a week is nice because it gives me plenty of time for CrossFit and sleeping and drinking, but I need to get it together.
I met a guy Wednesday night after the bar and we went out last night. He's really really really super nice.Like to the point where it kinda freaks me out because I don't think I've ever known anyone this nice. I'm definitely not that nice. And he actually calls when he says he'll call and took me out on a proper date. Definitely
I'm not sure if anything will come of it but I'll definitely see him again. As my friend Stephanie said in her e-mail after I recapped the date to her:
She's right. Guess I'll keep you guys posted about wedding details.
Other random funnies:My mom goes to spinning three days a week at 5:45 AM. Apparently it's the same people in her class every time and they've all become friends. My mom texted me earlier today:
Mom: "In two weeks it's Satin's birthday." (Satin is Elle's sister/my parents Great Dane)
Me: "She'll be 3, right?"
Mom: " Yep. My spin friends are going to happy hour and I said I could go even though it's Satin's birthday."
And later -
Mom: "I was thinking about hooking [your brother] up with Jessica from my spinning class. [Brother] told me he can't afford any bitches right now."
So there you have it.... being a crazy dog lady with a bad attitude and a penchant for swearing runs in the family.
Any lawyers in Chicago out there who are reading (and I know you're reading), send me an e-mail if you want to hire me. And you should want to hire me. I didn't make great grades but I'm not a dumb idiot when it comes to real life stuff, like most of the kids who made good grades. And I'll work for pretty cheap. Win/win!
