One more to go!

Tomorrow's my last final, and it's the FINAL of DOOM: International Environmental Law. Since I got a rude, impromptu study session during my graduate school comps when an IE law essay question popped up, I feel moderately prepared for this exam. We can bring in our outlines and our book too, so it's not so bad. I feel prepared. I'm going for my usual mediocrity.

Int'l Trade kicked my ass today. I got owned, big time. (Or is it "pwned" these days? Trying to keep up with what the cool kids are saying. Failing miserably.) But oh well. I don't think I was the only one, and if I end up with my usual mediocrity of B's, then I'm perfectly content. I would, however, like to get an A while I'm in law school. I know that's really hard to do, for instance, in a class of 14 people, where two of the people in the class are in the top 5. But I'd be really excited to get an A. A real A. Not an A minus.

Anyway, after tomorrow's final, I'm picking up Cora from my mom, who's been watching her for the past two days. I really miss her! We're going to do lots of snuggling, and then we're going back to campus for a special lecture from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Cora and I will sit in the back in case we have to excuse ourselves. Then we're picking up Husband and heading over to a friend's law school graduation party. She was also a joint degree student in my masters program. So she graduated last year from our masters program, and graduates tomorrow from law school. Should be good times. On Saturday... we're doing nothing. Absolutely nothing! We're going to have Family Time and enjoy doing nothing. I've barely seen Husband in the past few weeks, we've both been so busy with school. It seems most of the time we only see each other as we're passing Cora off so the other can go to work/school, study or sleep. Then this past weekend we had a crazy amount of family in town for the baptism (more on that later).

Almost done! I'm so excited. An entire summer of working part-time, and having four day weekends! Husband's probably going to pick up a little bit of overtime this summer to subsidize my inability to find full time work (and save up for the possibility that I won't find a job right away next summer after law school graduation). But most of the time, he'll work Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights, and I'll work Monday, Tuesday all day, and mornings on Wednesdays. My mom will watch Cora on Mondays and Tuesdays while I'm at work and Husband's asleep. And I'll be home on Wednesdays in time for Husband to sleep. Wednesday night, through Sunday afternoon, we'll have lots of time together. It's going to be a lot of fun.

One more final and it's summer!

Stupid exams. Dude - I've got White Collar Crime on Monday afternoon and then Tuesday morning CORPORATIONS. Now THAT sucks an egg.

Corporations definitely sucks. White Collar Crime though? That sounds awesome. Of course, it's law school, so the awesome-sounding class is probably boring as crap. I took Internet Law with the promise we'd be talking about porn. Yeah, we talked about porn ONCE. The rest of the semester it was contracts and IP law. Blech.

Yay! Congrats on having just one left. The weekend after finals is always the best weekend of the year- enjoy it!
