Rockin’ My Way Back onto My Rocker

by jen on July 25, 2007

One more day!

I cannot believe I have made it through two days of the bar exam and am staring into the maw of day 3 already!

Thank you everyone for your well wishes.

No heads were shaved over the past few days, but I did, go, um, a little crazy. Off my rocker. I have never seen myself like this. It was a little scary.

By Sunday, I had developed (still have) a weird rash on my legs, 12 zits on my face (still there), and ITCHED EVERYWHERE. By Monday, the day before the exam, I was so close to meltdown that I called my parents at 9 a.m. to ask if I had hives, and if one could die from that. Apparently, as my dad told my sister Penny, I was showing signs of being a little “weepy,” and needed to get the hell out of my apartment before I completely lost it.

Which is why, at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Penny and Gwen ROCKED MY WORLD and suprised the hell out of me by knocking on my door with a bag of 100% complete! unadulterated! exam-taking fun! from Target. Including some Aveeno creme for my rash, Vitamin Water, breath mints, gum, face wipes, anti-bacterial hand stuff, Advil, EVERYTHING.

Oh, those girls.

And then those girls? They took me to THE MALL. Where I got a new black dress and denim skirt from The Gap, a $10 awesome bangle from Banana, everything I need to feel great about the upcoming vacay.

When I can go to bed past 10:30, I will post some pictures, maybe! I am that excited about my purchases! And also about returning to blogging! And commenting (sorry!)!

And then we had dinner at Morel’s, my first non Lean Cuisine pizza meal in TWO WEEKS.

Oh. My. Holy. Crap.

They saved me, seriously. Rocked me right back on my rocker!

Gwen is heading off to law school herself in the fall, and man has she earned herself some good karma. I hope when she has decided that she KNOWS NOTHING and why even take those fall finals, really (actually, I hope she never feels this way, I hope I am the only one that nutty), someone comes along and rescues her, just like she did me.

And Penny? Now THAT is a good sister.

Seriously. Right back on my rocker. When I was so far off it I was like off the porch and about to head down the street braless and wailing about how equitable servitudes were a commie conspiracy.

One more day.

Y’all have a THREE day exam out there? That’s just cruel, and is what I’m going to tell any prospective lawyers that I catch whining about Illinois’s 2-day bar.

Good luck! And YAY for Penny and Gwen.

Just a few more days and it’s all over! We’ll be thinking of you.

You will definitely survive the final day now that you have all of those fabulous supplies.

ONE MORE DAY! ONE MORE DAY! (I am chanting this in much the same style as people chant “U.S.A! U.S.A!”)

Glad you are back on your rocker (at least for now…)

Good Gosh!!! I really admire you, there is no way in this world I could get through all that!! CRAZY? oh yeah, I would be 100% if I had to try to get all that info in my brain, wait, I think I already am! (I have teenagers in my house!!! lol!) ANYWAY i’m just sayin, GOOD LUCK!! and you will be lovin’ some vacation, no??? dang, you so deserve it!!!

Cheers! I hope it is all over and done so you can relax.
Also–I know the horror of the itchy legs. It’s a stress reaction. Aveeno works wonders, but Eucerin works well too.
When does the vacay begin?

So, did you live through it?
