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.

Thanks much for the hotel rec. I've gone ahead and cancelled the sheraton and gone for the residence inn. It looks much better on line and I figure the extra 40 bucks or so a night is worth it if it gets me through this in a better frame of mind. I'm in the awful state of reading bar exam blogs rather than actually studying -- not so smart -- but just can't seem to get motivated. Perhaps it's because I'm 42 and already did this stupid bar thing 16 years ago and am pissed that I have to jump through the hoops again for CA when my brain doesn't memorize as easily and quickly.
