A little melodrama for your Monday...

A friend told me she has a "pump-up" playlist that she listens to before a big exam the way that some athletes do before a race. A study partner of mine has been changing the lyrics to "Annie" all day long to "Tomorrow,  tomorrow, I fear you tomorrow! You're only a day away!"

As for me, this song has been going through my head all day as I've desperately tried to solidify bankruptcy, corporations, commercial paper and a dozen other sticky subjects I definitely did NOT take in law school in my mushy brain before I enter the lion's den tomorrow morning:

A bit dramatic? Perhaps. But I might just stand and cheer when they call "Time!" roughly 48 hours from now.

Impending doom/freedom ... either way I'll just be glad it's over

So ... the bar is in four days. Four. And I'm really wishing that about two months ago I'd started studying as hard as I've been for the past three or four weeks. But you know, I was working, I was pregnant, and most importantly, I was so. burned. out. Three years of law school can do that to you. But mostly? I was just acting like me. Because if there is one thing in academia I am really, REALLY good at, it's procrastinating.

That seems about right. More awesome procrastination cartoons HERE. Because really, she sums it up better than I can, and I don't think I'm violating her copyright license by posting the above picture as long as I link to her, right? Oh, the bar. The one test that makes you look for a lawsuit in every little interaction you have with people.
