In three more days.... life will be so much better ...

That was my mantra last summer, and you know what? I was right. I'm lovin' life now and you will be too (you = July 2008 testtakers who are finding wisdom in my delightful prose from the past). So keep your chins up, stay positive and just keeping breathing for these next few days. You know it - now you just have to show them you know it. Good luck - I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!


A new challenge...

I hope this update finds my blogging buddies from last summer well (even though I'm saddened that a few of them are still stuck in their awful study caves). I also hope that a few newbies (July '08ers) have stumbled upon my adventures and found them (a) amusing (b)inspiring (c)terrifying or (d) all of the above. I was just reading over a few of my blog entries from last summer and got a little nostalgic. Don't call me crazy - I said a little.

Anyways, I'm definitely on to bigger and better things these days. I'm still LOVING my job - I've already second chaired 2 trials with 3 more coming this summer and taken upwards of 20 depos. The challenge now is balancing all that workplace fun with other endeavors...

So.. I'm running a marathon. Yup. I figure the bar exam is sort of a mental marathon so this year I'll try a physical one. If you're interested in keeping up with my new adventures, I'm blogging about my training over at http://marathonamanda.blogspot.com/

Let me know how you guys are doing if you get a chance!

PS On an unrelated sidenote, if you're looking for a place to stay during the bar exam in Sacramento I would highly reccomend the Marriot Residence Inn. I stayed there recently when I was in Sac for a depo. It is right next to the convention center and a ton nicer than the Sheraton where I stayed. Each room has a full fridge, a whole mini-kitchen and a really nice big screen tv - plus a full on free breakfast included. I'm not sure if the price difference is huge, but it's worth looking into.
