Leaving on a jet plane

I'm at the parentals. I left PMBR today, headed back to the office, completed a phone "security interview" for a friend (I burst out laughing when the guy called and asked if we could schedule a time to meet), hit the drugstore for extra earplugs and school supplies, Bath & Bodyworks for some "chill out" lotion (of course, I nearly freaked out trying to choose between "Breathe Calm" and "Breath Serenity" - what is the difference? Do I want to be calm? Or serene? Calm? Or serene? What is the difference? Serenity now! Serenity now! Glad to know that one of my lowest points, Bar prep-wise, happened while trying to select de-stress lotion.) I'm now doing laundry/packing/working on PR.

I've hit a calm (or is it a serenity?) I have everything with me that I'm taking to California. I'm going to PMBR tomorrow am, and my dad is picking me up at noon and driving me to the airport. I'm getting on the plane, and flying to CA. My best friend is picking me up (I haven't seen her since AUGUST - it's been an entire year.)

All I have to do right now is keep on keeping on. I have the plan, I've done the work...and I'm starting to get excited. I know that I'm going to peak at the right time, and that my mental game is coming online.

For my BarBlawg peeps - thanks a million, you guys kept me sane. You raged against BarBri with me, you showed me that my essays were not the complete crap that the graders seemed to think. And you did it all with elan and humour. I consider y'all friends - and that's saying a lot, considering that we're all (almost) lawyers! ;)

Have a good time. And, have fun. I work for a division of the BBW people--I crack up with the names that they get for the stuff--calm or serenity. Marketing people. [rolling my eyes] :)
