Dear Bar Review Studying,I hate you with a passion that I wasn't aware I possessed. I hate how you take up ALL of my time, 10-12 hours a day. I hate how you make my hand ache with all of the "write this over and over in a vain attempt to memorize it." I hate how you toy with me by making me feel alternately like genius, and then like I spent 3 years in law school learning NOTHING.
But most of all, I hate how you prevent me from knitting.
Cricket is trying to adapt to the new studying regime, and, with almost constant practice, she's getting better.
Here she is last weekend, when she still hadn't perfected her technique...
... and then from earlier in the week, when she has clearly developed a much more effective method of full-paper-coverage.
There has been knitting, just not much. Henry and I have had a few little color-related spats, but I think we're over them now. And I managed to take a few minutes from my studying to install my new "above the desk" shelf...
So between now and July 24/25, I will be sitting here, studying, and trying desperately to not let the last 3 years be a gigantic waste of time/money. I may manage to knit occasionally, and I'm trying really hard to carve out some Late-Night time with the Irregulars...
I think July 26th will be one of the happiest days of my life. If I didn't have to return all of the study materials to get back my $175 deposit, I would have a huge bonfire and burn every last page.
