Today’s Spa visit went fine. It’s tough, though, watching that transformation. We go in bubbly, joking, smiling, vibrating with life. We leave sullen, slow, and feeling pretty miserable. It happens all in the span of 90 minutes Continue reading Good Spa Visit Today
Check out this great article about cancer on the front page of today’s NY Times. The parallels are uncanny! It’s about a girl, 35, who was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. It’s scary and encouraging at the same time. She was told she had maybe six months to live. She’s got (or had) large liver tumors and was told they are inoperable. And she has a law degree.
I think I’ll be calling Dr. Choti tomorrow. Anyone have any connections at Johns Hopkins?
The move is done. Friday morning, despite the haziness, we got all Maggie’s stuff packed up and into the trailer. And by “we” I mean mostly the movers. Continue reading Home for Good
Wow, what another memorable day in this adventure we call Law Camp. She’s graduated. She finished the Bar exam. What’s next? Who cares, really. Continue reading Happy, Happy Day!
Martha and Maggie are on cloud nine and a little bit wired up right now. They have been yelling law at each other since I got here, no doubt Monday morning quarterbacking their performance. Minimum competency this and mbe that. I don’t have a clue what they are saying other than the bitching that the champagne isn’t cold yet. 🙂
Maggie said the morning portion of the test was HORRIBLE (caps hers, not mine) but the afternoon wasn’t quite so bad.
Tonight we celebrate!
I just spoke with Maggie and she’s done for the day. Only one more day of this to go. She sounded really up-beat and happy to be finished but she’s also quite tired. Apparently, she says, thinking really hard all day wears you out.
Katy apparently made it through the test ok. She’s going to rest her back tonight but she thinks she’s going to make it.
Wow, what a monumental undertaking! And they are all almost done.
Today’s test was tough. Maggie said she knows she got some answers wrong but it’s still a hard thing to tell how she did overall. For what it’s worth, she seemed happy the times I chatted with her today. All 3 1/2 minutes. Continue reading One Day Down, Two More To Go!
It’s almost time! Tomorrow starts the bar exam marathon (finally!) She’ll be in the test tomorrow from 8AM until noon-ish. Wednesday and Thursday she’ll be in the boiler room from 8AM until 4:30-ish. Then it’s done. Continue reading It’s Bar Time!
Maggie has returned back to Waco for one last visit. But oh, how important this visit is – it’s Bar Time! (Ok, all you drinkers you out there, not that type of bar… that type comes on Thursday. See you there!) This is the final push. She’s rounding third and is screaming towards home! Literally. 🙂 Continue reading Back to Waco One Last Time
The Bar is nearly here! And Maggie feels like she’s ready. She’s definitely _sick_ of studying. The actual test is next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday followed immediately by celebrations. Continue reading Of Bar Exam Plans and Moving Vans
