Two days to go…

I have written so much that I no longer have feeling on the tip of my right middle finger. (Yes, I hold my pen in such a peculiar way that puts ridiculous amounts of pressure on that point.)
I have learned more about Corporations and Real Property than I will ever, ever have to know (after Wednesday, anyway).
I have done hundreds and hundreds of multiple choice questions and am very happy to be at that 65-68% range. (The only time in my life where aiming for a D is good enough.)
I learned enough law in the past week to be able to write a coherent essay in the mechanical, dry form that is required of me.
I have figured out how to get to my hotel and to the testing center and back… on paper at least.
I have filled up my gas tank, balanced my checkbook, and paid all my bills so I can get on the road in the morning and not have to worry about my finances for the next week. I also made a Target run to stock up on new pens, razors, and quasi-healthy snack food for my hotel room. (All before 11:30AM!)
I have eaten more take-out and junk food in the past week than ever before, and am looking forward to getting either take-out sushi or thai later tonight.
I am officially sick of chocolate. Yet, I cannot stay away from the GIANT (three-bag-full) bowl of M&Ms on the counter. (No, I did not buy the M&Ms.) I’m also kind of sick of ice cream, although only having it twice (although, once included eating a pint-and-a-half carton in one day). I think I am just sick of sugar, generally.
I have a month and a half of laundry to still do today.
I have three more essays left to do today. I have to review NY multiple choice answers today. I should do some more essays if there is time.
I have been on a crazy rollercoaster of incredibly sane, confident moments and absolutely totally stress-ball sort of moments. One minute, I’m totally fine and realize I have just the right amount of info tucked away in my brain, and the next the stress of the past eight weeks hits me like a freight train.
But right now? Feeling totally a-okay about the exam. I’m more worried about getting lost on the way to the exam or forgetting something like my cell phone charger. But the exam? I think I can handle that.
We’ll see what tomorrow (or hell, later this afternoon) brings.

  2. Thanks. The calmness very much comes and goes, but at least it’s here now, right?
