And I will be too. Relatively soon.
I have never been one to worry or stress over, well, a lot of things. I guess the same goes for this exam I will be taking tomorrow morning. Actually, around this exact time tomorrow, I should be "free" or finished or completed or, at the very minimum, out of a stuffy college classroom and hopefully enjoying a dark beer and an American Spirit (or ten). Then maybe a nap.
To be realistic, I am going into the LSAT totally illprepared. I have studied very little as life has (done what life tends to do and) turned hectic and threw me off-balance. This, I realize in retrospect, is something I should have anticipated or at least been vaguely aware of. But wasn't. Or maybe I was. It is all very confusing (not to mention mundane for readers, I am sure). However, I am not here to entertain. I am here, doing this, typing these words, as some sort of strange therapeutic practice that I have grown to depend on and actually thoroughly enjoy.
Speaking of enjoyment, I saw my sister yesterday. She came to my flat with her man-friend, and just visited. She really is great. The older I grow the more and more aware I become of her sheer greatness, her love for life, and (caring for) people. I am lucky to have a little sister like Kim. She's also incredibly funny. She makes me laugh like very few people are able to. I dig that, a lot.
Also. I have been mildly obsessed with The National as of late. Their album "Boxer" is quite impressive. Truth be told, I met a handsome boy weeks ago. We bonded over books (he's reading Vonnegut's Armageddon in Retrospect, which I finished over the summer, etc.) and music (he saw Radiohead at Lollapalooza last summer, I saw them in Indianapolis; he saw David Bazan at the Turf Club a couple months back, I saw him at Lincoln Hall, etc.). These are things that attract me to people in general (but as previously mentioned, he was a handsome boy -- which makes things more interesting I guess). Anyway. Long story short, he was into The National. I randomly remembered him mentioning this while at Barnes and Noble. And the rest is history ...regarding my obsession with the album, I mean.
So. It is officially considered late to be awake and functioning the night before the LSAT (or so my fellow LSAT taking friends tell me), so I best be off to sleep. I have my large Ziploc bag packed (four #2 pencils, tissues, a banana, my driver's license, my LSAT ticket -- all of the most random/boring things packed into one plastic bag really), and my outfit set out as if I were a third grader (yoga pants, cardigan, moccasins). Ugh. It is frustrating, don't you think? These tests, this fucking test I have to take in the morning. I know I would be a successful environmental lawyer. I can feel it in my bones. I am passionate, and hardworking (whatever that even means anymore) -- at least regarding things of which I am passionate. So it would work. Work really well actually. But, unfortunately, a 3.5 hour long exam will determine much more than my silly words, passions, and promises.
