1. I PASSED THE BAR! I mean, in case you were wondering, after all that stressing out and second guessing and worrying, I’m a little happy. And by a little happy, I mean INCREDIBLY RELIEVED. Because let’s be honest, if I’d failed I would have been blog-silent until the results of the FEBRUARY bar exam came out, which would kind of kill the community we’ve all built here.
2. I bought a china cabinet! And it is being delivered on Thursday, and I am totally excited. I’ve been wanting a new table, chairs, and china cabinet ever since the afternoon after I bought my original table and chairs from IKEA with my first law school roommate. Seriously, that is three years of longing and finally… it is almost finished. And if you are out there saying who seriously wishes for furniture for three years when she could be wishing for prince charming or travels through Europe or a Mercedes, then listen here: I already have prince charming and a 1998 Honda, and if I was being totally honest I would tell you that I’d usually rather stay at home and make dinner than go out to a fancy restaurant and live a ritzy important life.
3. We moved our living room shelves into our kitchen, hung our diplomas on the bedroom wall, and have been really settling into our little tiny home. While part of me would love a larger place, right now this is the perfect size for us and for our savings accounts, which we are very responsibly trying to grow. I’m falling more in love with our apartment every day.
4. I’m starting to do more important things at work. I feel like I’m really doing the kind of work I want to be doing (most of the time), and I’m excited to start setting up training and developmental assignments to bring some serious skills to our office.
5. I’m digging my Bible study. I worry that I am too critical of faith and faith-statements and that they might not want to keep me around for too long, but it is very good to be back in the circle of women of faith. And I’m pretty comfortable being the black-sheep-liberal in the room, since I grew up in Tennessee. :)
Tonight I’m making orzo for dinner because it is easy to chew — tomorrow I’m heading to the oral surgeon because I’m having tooth pain and probably need my wisdom teeth out. . . pronto. But maybe it’s only something easy, like a root canal?
