I have been reading a lot of posts that go, “there are [small number] of days until my wedding! I have [long list] of things to do! SWEET MOTHER OF EVERYTHING HOLY!”
I relate, even though my wedding is [big number] of days away. This is because the bar exam is in two weeks.
[E. of Wedding for Two is in both camps! Brave girl.]
I REALLY hope the wedding ends up being less stressful than the bar exam. Because I want people to like me on the day I get married, and I’ve been a raging bitch. And I’d like to look pretty on the day I get married, and my skin is red, my eyes are puffy, and, no exaggeration, I discover new gray hairs every day. Plus I don’t want to drop dead from a stroke between today and one year, two days from now.
I think, I hope, that it will be easier. Because the check box for “Wrap gifts for bridal attendants” is probably more fun than the check box for “Review Conflict of Laws.”1 Plus my family will be here, and I’m one of those lucky bastards who generally finds that a relief from stress instead of a stressor. Also Collin, who’s away this week for a science fair.2
So if it is quiet on this blog the next two weeks, it’s because I’m busy trying to become a lawyer. If it isn’t quiet, well, maybe I’ll be writing this post again in February of 2011. Shudder.
1Even though Conflict of Laws was one of my favorite classes, because I’m a procedure dork. Brainerd Currie was once dean of my law school. He at one point suggested that choice of law between two states should be based on which is first alphabetically. He might have been kidding, because he’s a card like that.
2I think he calls it an “academic conference” or a “symposium” or some such, but as far as I’m concerned he’s in a gym looking at model volcanoes.
