And for once... I'm so so so very glad that it's currently 61 degrees and raining in Chicago and NOT 90 and sunny. Because it is OH SO HARD to turn down cold beers in the warm sun on a beautiful day to sit inside and study.
But when it's crappy out there's really not much to do anyway. So I study. Or blog about studying. WHATEVER.
Tomorrow I celebrate friends birthdays, and Monday I cross my fingers for nice weather on a day off from work for some pool time!
I can't even begin to express how much I DO NOT WANT TO STUDY FOR THE BAR EXAM AGAIN.
However I don't want to be an unlicensed JD living below poverty level any longer either.
I'm getting a little bit done today. Starting with the MBE/Multistate Edge stuff so they can "assess my strengths and weaknesses" and tell me what to study. And by they I mean the computer.
Then on Sunday I put together a study plan.
Then on Monday I start studying.
So I've been babysitting for a family that lives close to me for over a month now. I've gotten to know all the kids pretty well at this point, and it's exhausting and great birth control but I actually really enjoy it.
Since there are 3 kids and dad travels a lot, I'm more of a "mother's helper" than a sitter, because a lot of the time the mom is home but just needs an extra adult to run errands, help with homework, pick up at soccer practice, etc.
Yesterday after I did the lacrosse drop off I made dinner and did homework with the boy while the parents went to a work dinner and one of the girls was at lacrosse and the other was getting ready for bed.
I was almost done with dinner when he asked me to check over his math answers.
I look and say "looks good except for that last one."
And he says "that one's right!"
And I said "no look at it again. One quarter plus five nickels plus three pennies is NOT 53 cents."
boy: "yes it is!!!"
me: re-count on my fingers... "oh, yeah... You're right. Good job!"
Boy: "Are you SURE you went to college?"
And I just died laughing.
Maybe they accidentally gave me second grade math on the bar exam?
