I'm a bit frustrated it has taken me all day to try to accomplish three things and they are not done yet:
1. Balance my accounts on microsoft money. That shouldn't be TOO HARD, however manuevering one of my BANK's hideous site's that has the worst interface and after talking to a number of customer service folk who were no help - AFTER HOURS of obsessing about this while reading partnership and corporate law in the slow page loading via AOL dial up time wasting interim... I FINALLY figured out HOW to do this. Now of course I am having super difficulty in ACHIEVING it as the site is timing out... I have to get up and take care of kids etc...
SO I have been on line OFF AND ON all day and stll didn't get to--
#2. Make travel reservations for Norfolk.
YES the BAR EXAM is only a few days away, and NO I have no reservations made yet for either rental car or hotel (or Greyhound.... or have a route for hitch hiking figured out yet HA HA.... I may not be joking though. I need to accomplish #1 to really know the BUDGET for #2! )
Too bad its not warmer... I'll never forget the time my roomie came with me as my date for a wedding of my oldest girlfriend for which I was a bridesmaid and we camped in a georgous state park in VT! I am likely one of the few Bridesmaids who ever turned down the posh accomodations to a tent.... But she was working as an AA for an Exec after Katerine Gibbs and I was a lowly human services worker in a group home.
Which brings me to the last thing I REALLY WANTED TO DO TODAY
#3 STUDY CONSTITUTION LAW
I really should review that subject area before the BAR EXAM. I haven't touched it in years. I think the last work I did was in the area of researching education law and writing about Charter schools. ITs been a while.... alough review of Criminal law touched on those relevant constitutional issues.
Fortunately I LOVE CONSTITUTION LAW. It was one of my all time favorite classes and I took a number of Education Law Classes and studied that area in depth. (OH yeah... to say I never read in all of LAW SCHOOL Was an error. I should have said I almost never read case law of the MAIN SUBJECT AREAS. I in fact DID READ for my Education Law class ALOT. I Skimmed alot! I do recall though my disappointment at a low grade in constitution law which I found strange as I enjoyed it so much and thought I got it. I remember being very disappointed so likely should have reviewed that area sooner. (But then again I never did review that final exam and wouldn't be surprised at all if it were like my Criminal Law final when I accidentally handed in only three out of the four essay questions!)
NOw that I think of that it makes me just SURE I will pass the BAR this time. I have never taken it MEDICATED for ADHD before. It SO LIKELY that I never really ANSWERED all the questions, or never really handed all them in somehow... we ADHD people have a knack for doing quirky odd things like that. I do remember sleeping during every standardized test I ever took. I would bet that would seem HARD to do on something like the BAR exam, but the thing is- if AT ALL POSSIBLE then it almost LIKELY that I did something due to lack of attentiveness that affected my exam that I will NOT DO when treating ADHD!
Heck, at the very least, if I bring provisions I won't this time leave them in the hotel room refrigerator.
