I guess this is it. Good luck to everyone. |

There's really only one thing I freaking out about: I don't know very much law. |

Talked to the drama tonight when I should have been studying. I'm so bad. I wasn't drinking or anything though, so I can get up extra early tomorrow to compensate. I don't know what the story is with him, but if he doesn't have a girlfriend, I think he just dates a lot. Whatever. I am more concerned with not ending up in the middle of anything messy than I am about his actual level of availability. He is probably coming by the coffee shop again tomorrow. And he might think I'm going for a ride on his motorcycle. Obviously he does not know me. Maybe it's time for me to be daring... Or maybe it's time for me to study and stop thinking about things like this! |

Even a week and a half before the bar I manage to find drama. Drama who might have a girlfriend. What was supposed to be a short break last night ended up lasting a bit longer than I intended and involving a few more beers than the intended none. But I definitely had a much bigger smile on my face when I got home than I would have if I had spent the evening studying secured transactions. Now, no more fun, just studying. |

My golden ticket arrived. I guess this thing is real. I can't believe two weeks from now it will be over. |

The trip has been modified slightly. I have decided that 7 games in 8 days was just a bit much. Fun, but probably exhausting. So I'm planning 3 games, a few days at the beach, and a little time with a certain prosecutor. Should be fun and relaxing. And I might squeeze in a 4th game in Pittsburgh on the way home. Now I just need to survive the next three weeks so I can actually take this vacation. |

The fabulous after the bar trip involving sand and alcohol is off. Flaky friend is to blame. I am very sad. So I've been trying to think of a trip to take instead that can still be planned with only 3 weeks to go and that would be fun by myself. What I have come up with is a driving trip to see lots of baseball games. The current plan is to start in New York and see the Yankees on July 31st, followed by the Orioles, the Nationals, the Indians, the Reds, the Cardinals, a day off and Saturday night in Chicago, the White Sox, the Cubs, and drive home. I think I might have to skip New York because it doesn't look like I can get multiple tickets to the game and that is the one place I definitely know I have someone to go to the game with me. Since it is the furthest out of my way, I don't want to drive all that way unless I know I have tickets. If anyone reading this lives in any of those cities and wants to meet me for a game or a drink or something, let me know. Driving 2400 miles in a week and a half is no beach, but it should be lots of fun. |

4th of July weekend is here. This is when everyone says you start freaking out. I have gotten bar exam advice, unsolicited, from pretty much everyone I know who is a lawyer and the only thing that is consistent is everyone says I will start freaking out this weekend. It hasn't happened yet, but it is only Saturday morning. Actually, I will be surprised if they are right. My biggest goal after passing is to remain calm. But it does feel like the right point for studying to become more serious, but that is primarily because now all of my substantive classes are done so all that's left is intensive studying and practice tests. Because of the work that lies ahead for the next three weeks, tonight will be the last night out until afterwards, so I better make it worthwhile. |
