Exam Studying, Day One 

I had a grand plan of going to the town library today to study for Taxation of Business Entities, my toughest exam and which of course is the first one, on Monday. My first clue of a problem was the music that seemed to be getting louder as I walked from the parking garage to the entrance. Indeed, it was coming from the live latin jazz concert that was going on in one of the function rooms, and which was audible all over the library. I maybe could have gotten through that if it weren't for all the talkers and cell phone answerers and loud little children wandering around in the "quiet study" area. Plus the rattling that occurred in the ventilation system built into the windowsill next to my table. I gave it a couple of hours and retreated to my nice quiet house. The Girl was out golfing, so it worked out.

In other news, I finally broke down and bought some reading flags at Staples - you know, the little Post-It things with the clear adhesive end to stick to pages and the write on end to label the section. Four years of law school and I'm just getting them in time for my last three exams.

In even other news, on Thursday (after they postponed it for a week) I had my 6-month one-sided follow up mammogram after October's stressful series, and everything's fine. Back in October for the annual on both.

Tonight: studying and bar application (yup, didn't get to it last weekend. It's due by May 11).

Tomorrow: one hour max walking with Middle Sister, studying, brunch in Gloucester (where an attorney friend is going to sign my bar application - Massachusetts requires each application be signed by a state licensed attorney), more studying.

July 21 - Harry Potter's latest adventure will arrive on my doorstep, and I won't be able to open it because I'll be five days away from the start of the bar exam. It's just not right.
