The hour before bar results were posted was probably the longest hour of my life (and I’m still trying to figure out who thinks it is a good idea to post a massive alphabetical list of everyone who passed, letting everyone know who is conspicuously missing).
But my name was on the list. I passed the bar! I will be sworn in next week.
Good luck to everyone still waiting on results or taking it in the future. Set a schedule and work your butt off. It will be worth it.
I have too much stuff and not enough money! I sold a few items on eBay last month, but I want to set bigger targets. My goal is to sell five items in July and five items in August (at least) to start clearing out the clutter.
As a bonus, this should help me achieve one of my other goals of cleaning out my home office (that is the room where all the junk goes when I don’t have a place to put it).
I briefly started C25K in January, but only ended up doing about a week and a half before I got completely sidetracked. There are so many great 5K runs in my area, and I am ready to start joining in!
Less than three weeks left until I take the Oregon bar. Bar prep seems to be flying by!
I have about 80 lenses on Squidoo right now (although a handful are purchased). I’m hoping to make it to 100 by the end of September, at the latest.
After working as a baker for a few years, I decided to return to school. Now I have a J.D. and am studying for the bar exam! However, I am getting worried about finding a good job (or, any job, with the economy as it is).
Although I’m proud of having completed law school, sometimes I wonder if it was all worth it.
I’ve put together my website and blog. While I love what I have so far, I feel like starting the website was the easy part! Now I have to keep building it and turn it into what I envision!
I haven’t even had the time to update this (with studying for the bar going on), but I graduated law school in May!
I haven’t really focused on this goal in a while, but for the last week it has started to make a comeback. I’m the kind of person who loves new toys and gadgets, and I found a website and app for my phone called Runkeeper that’s really helping me along. It will probably lose it’s novelty eventually, but for right now I’m having fun tracking my workouts and trying to beat my time/distance/speed records.
I’d really like to run a marathon one day (although I’m far from that). My first step is to do a 5K!
I quit smoking for three years, but started up again last May. I normally don’t make New Years Resolutions, but decided that this year I would quit. It only took two days before something stressful sent me running to the gas station for smokes. I justified it to myself (since it was a pretty serious emergency), but ultimately I am annoyed by myself. I know that this is something I can beat because I did it before.
But smoking just makes me feel sick at this point. I’m hurting myself and wasting money that I don’t really have. So, I’ve set a new quit date and am ready to roll. By the end of the month, I want to have spent at least two weeks completely smoke-free.
I love to knit, sew, and scrapbook. I’ve also been teaching myself to quilt. Even though I tried to learn to crochet in the past, I never quite got the hang of it. This time, I’m going to learn!
I just recieved my grades for fall semester and am pretty happy with how I did. I am not officially halfway through my time at law school!
I decided that my first step in organizing this office has to be getting all the boxes taken care of. So I added unpacking one box each day to my to do list for the next week (and, actually getting all the stuff inside put AWAY where it is supposed to be). Getting those boxes out of the way will make it MUCH easier to organize the rest, especially since one stack is completely blocking one of my file cabinets.
One box is already done, and I’ve been on a cleaning roll today. I might actually be heading in the right direction by the end of the day!
Besides the desk and bookshelves, my home office has started to look like my storage space. There are still seven or eight unpacked boxes stacked up in there from my last move (a year and a half ago!) and when I have company, this is the room I tend to shove things into to open up space elsewhere.
I’m out of town for the holidays. Before I left, I actually spent an hour cleaning and straightening up. However, there are still a few hours of unpacking and organizing to do. I’d love to have this accomplished in the next week or so, before my work and classes pick up and start keeping me busy.
I love to cook, although sometimes I let my schedule get in the way. Lately, I feel like I’m stuck in a food rut. My SO is a very simple, meat-and-potatoes kind of guy. I tend to cook that way for us, but I’d like to spice it up.
Time to pull out my cookbooks! I think that the first recipe I am going to try for us is a flank steak roulade I have been dying to make.
This used to be a regular goal of mine. It is especially tricky now, since I’m a law student and have a TON of required reading. I’d like to keep reading for pleasure in my life, though!
I suppose it just means I will have to read more on my vacations this year if I want to get through 50 books. Time to start putting together my list of selections.
I’m a 1L at the University of Oregon. It was a long-time dream of mine to attend law school and I never thought it would happen. I’m so excited that I am actually there (and terrified at how fast my first semester finals are approaching!)
I took it today, and thought it went pretty well. I’ll find out the results in about two weeks, though!
I finished reading Steering the Craft by Ursula K. Le Guin two days ago, and am about a third of the way done with my last book Writing Dialogue by Tom Chiarella. I also have five and a half hours left in 2007. I can make it!
I’m going to be doing this on January 19th—my work schedule has been keeping me from getting to it, but it’s finally all planned out!
