I get two MBE questions in a row right and I'm like "YESSSSSSSSSSSSS I am SO freaking smart and I SO got this this time!"
And then I get two MBE questions wrong and I want to cry and lock myself in a closet because OMG I AM NEVER EVER EVER EVER GOING TO PASS THIS AWFUL TEST.
I need a mood stabilizer.
Or perhaps a tranquilizer.

Even if I try to take a nap, I don't feel rested afterwards.
I think the stress of doing this for a third time is just starting to get to me.... Which is seriously bad news considering there are still 4 weeks to go.
That combined with my usual jaw clenching/teeth grinding during stress and dealing with several friends who have been exactly the opposite of friendly, and I'm feeling straight up stabby.
And I miss my dog. :(

Just checking in to tell you I'm alive.
Not much new to report.
I've eaten Chick-Fil-A three times in the last seven days.
Studying lots this week so I can take Saturday and Sunday off... one of my good friends from law school is getting married on Saturday and Sunday is gay pride.
When I told the groom that I had plans to challenge his boss and former Chicago mayoral candidate to a pushup contest on the dance floor, I was told that I will only be given two drink tickets while everyone else gets an open bar.
But then I helped him pick out his tux shoes so I think we're all good now.
Here's a picture of the bride-to-be with her almost in-law's new puppy, Cora Belle.

So let's say you tell this guy, "listen buddy, that's not what I'm all about, so BEAT IT. Delete my number, because I don't want to hear from you again."
And he does. And six months go by and you don't hear from him again. And it's good because you're a nice girl who is looking for a nice guy, but you're sad because you actually did kinda like him. He's tall and funny and has a good job and all the things that you generally required of someone who is going to be boyfriend material. With some extras - like being super cute.
And then on a beautiful Sunday afternoon you're sitting at your pool next to your friends and you're chatting and you see someone waving at you from across the pool. And you're like "hmmm who's that", and then you realize IT'S THE DUDE.
And it kind of freaks you out but whatever it's Chicago you're bound to run into each other again at some point.
So let's say you chalk it up to a freak incident and move on with your life.
Then let's say you're coming home from work on a Monday evening and you walk in to the lobby of your building and BOOM. THE DUDE. THERE HE IS. AGAIN. AT YOUR HOME. AGAIN.
So you're like Holy Shit, he's either stalking me, OR HE'S MOVED IN TO MY BUILDING.
So let's say you send him a facebook message, and it turns out, YEP. HE MOVED IN TO YOUR BUILDING.
OF ALL THE BUILDINGS IN CHICAGO, HE PICKED YOUR BUILDING TO MOVE IN TO.
And yes, he knew it was your building.
Let's say you tell some of your good friends, to gauge their reactions, because you aren't sure if yours is appropriate:
[The Dude] MOVED IN TO MY BUILDING
me: omg. stop. i hate you.
whew. that was good. ok. wiping the tears now.
youre lucky i brought my mascara today

I am a PROUD finisher.
It took my 1 hour and 7 minutes, which was one of the slowest times in the gym, and my knees are torn up from doing knee pushups, but I DID IT!
And today I can barely lower myself on to the toilet my legs are so sore.

So, enough bitching, let's talk about pretty happy things.
I have a bazillion friends happy and in love, so that means their daddies buy me hours of open bars and I buy them pretty things.
(Just purchased several sets of crystal champagne flutes from Tiffany's for friends gettin hitched in the upcoming weeks/months) (if you're one of those friends and you read the blog, act surprised)
Other things that make me happy?
Walking to get frozen yogurt at the new self-serve frozen yogurt place in the hood. I get to take a stroll in the beautiful warm weather (finally!), choose my flavors, and then I get to put as much topping on it as possible! HOORAY!
Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals (Game 2 tonight!)
Illinois issuing civil union licenses yesterday and performing the first ceremonies today. Proud of my adopted state!
Oh and I got 13/17 on a torts practice MBE set. Which made me REALLY happy after I got 6/17 on a contracts set.
Anything in particular giving you the happiez today?

The idiot of an insurance agent I was working with won't return my phone calls or e-mails (thanks, you're a gem), so I had to apply online for a bunch of other companies.
Humana sends me an e-mail that they've approved me, so log in and they'll give me the details.
For a mere $225 a month (25% of my monthly income), they'll insure me. However they won't cover any prescriptions, including antidepressants or adderall, and I have a $5,000.00 deductible.
So basically they want 25% of my monthly income to cover nothing. And I get to pay out of pocket for all medications. GEE how can I thank you Humana?
Unfortunately I don't really have a choice but to take it, so I log in to try to complete the application and have them charge my credit card, etc....
I am directed to the log in screen.
Click "finish my application."
Directed to the log in screen.
Click "finish my application."
Directed to the log in screen.
Over. And over. And over. And over.
Why does nothing ever work?
I am about to break out in hives at the thought of having to call Humana and try to sort this out over the phone.
I am approximately 3 days away from quitting my life.
