One Breakfast Taco Too Many
Bonjour, mes amies! I'm in high spirits today and have no idea why.. especially considering the fact that one week from today I will be sitting in a tres uncomfortable plastic chair in the loathed Crockett Center, starting Day #1 of the BAR exam. I know i've said it before but.. 3 days, really?!?!? Is that NECESSARY??? Anyway, i woke up early for the first time in weeks and managed to shower, dress, and drop Miss Lola off at the vet before arriving here at school. (poor darling is getting spayed today!) I have a long day ahead of me here (and probably @ a coffeeshop later), and it's nice to not have to worry about Lola and going home to walk/feed her. My mother is officially over having the cats, which is fine b/c after all, they are MY cats and MY responsibility. My post-bar goals include a massive decluttering/organizing/overhaul of my apartment, and that will include making space for 2 cats and 1 dog to live comfortably avec moi. It can be done!
Treated myself to two delicious breakfast tacos this morning. If you're not from Austin, you may not be aware of what a breakfast taco entails. It's a bit of an Austin specialty i've come to realize, but is tres easy to make yourself. Bacon, egg, and cheese in a tortilla... not hard! My faves include the aforementioned bacon/egg/cheese combo, as well as a migas-style. I had one of each this morning, and that was one too many... i'm stuffed! But at least that'll keep me full for awhile. Hate thinking about what to eat when in study-mode - takes too much time.
One of the reasons for my good mood is that after Momma Park's short but sweet visit Sunday, i did a little centering and realized that i CAN have peace of mind about this exam. Regardless of what happens, i know that things will be FINE. Isn't that the story of my life after all? 3 miserable years of law school and less than stellar grades and yet still i somehow landed a great job here in Austin? It's truly a blessing, and i thank God everyday for giving me this seemingly undeserved opportunity. Besides, i've actually studied and worked for this exam, so at least i'll know that i put in my effort. If things don't work out, they don't work out. And life goes on! I've lived with far too much FEAR, and honestly, i think it's just a waste of my time. (And yours, probably!)
Mmkay MUST start working, but i'll leave you with this hilarious e-card my BFF Judd (also studying for the BAR) sent me yesterday. Definitely laughed out loud in the library! http://www.someecards.com/viewcard/1463a0267ca30926f810d7ce1e15414a
