Okay, backstory - I read A Girl Walks into a Bar (Exam) written by a fellow-toiler who will take the CA Bar in July. A chiquita named Heather has commented a few times on that blog, and I thought that she might be taking the CA Bar review in the same location as me.
Recently, Chai commented on my blog. I decided to peruse her blog, since she is yet ANOTHER fellow toiler. (By the way, she picked a FABULOUS template ;) ) On her BlogList, I see someone named Heather...could it be? What are the chances? Hmmm...THIS Heather is also taking the CA Bar....also reads Girl Walks into a Bar. I think we have a winner. Who woulda thought, right? What a crazy small world!
Yeah, no, it's just getting good.
I scroll through Heather's posts and find this one :
The girl in front of me today had with her on the first substantive day of bar/bri: a stack of no less than 75 hand-made contracts flash cards made with two types of pens, two-hole punched and stacked neatly inside a plastic index-card sized 'binder'; and a separate note-pad to take notes that she couldn't fit on the outline she was filling in and highlighting with multiple colors.
- I brought a stack of flashcards (and filled out the first 10 with the reading we did that morning),
- I just bought an index card binder,
- I had a little notepad in addition to my outline,
- I highlight the BarBri outline with two colors.
That's right, folks - I managed to paddle myself through the Interwebs to a post ABOUT ME, and more importantly ABOUT HOW GEEKY I AM.
Thank you, thank you - you've been a great audience. I'm here all week.
P.S. - I went through some denial where I thought it could be some other school supply-obsessed person, but no - in a quick volley of comments, Heather and I established that I was, in fact, the object of her geek scorn.
P.P.S - I met Heather today - this could be the start of a beautiful friendship. Isn't this the most hilarious "how we met" story?
