I just finished taking the July 2011 bar exam and am now vegging in front of my computer, catching up on missed tv and attending online photography classes from CreativeLive.  I’m a repeat taker, so I wasn’t as nervous going into this exam as the previous time.  However, I changed my study tactic completely this time. I didn’t stay home to study, but instead locked myself up in a library study room with the best study partner I can find. Kat and I have excelled at every thing we do together like traveling and studying, but we were living in different areas for law school, so we didn’t get to study together for the bar. This time, we made the effort to meet every day for a certain amount of hours to TALK things out. You don’t know how much of a difference that makes on comprehension. Anyway, hopefully our study tactic was enough to pass this time around, and here is a clip of what my desk looks like when I come home. Because we study in the library, i kept my computer desk free of too much paper and clutter, but furnished it with things to unwind on. I’m back home now, and planning activities for the next 4 months of waiting til results in November, so my desk will be filled with photo albums and scrapbooking materials soon! Thanks for being so supportive during my studies and the encouragement when I switched up my blogsite is also much appreciated!! I’m still learning how to utilize all the features and getting my portfolio done to show, but it’s gorgeous outside today, so I’m going to get some coffee and do some outdoor activities first!

Today is our last day studying together in moot courtroom B. Although this last two months have been very trying and excruciating, I would not have spent it with anyone else but these peeps!! We have been together at least 12 hours a day, everyday, for the last month solid. All the Micky D, Mags donuts, Milk + Honey, Boiling Crab, Mentatsu, and A&J only accompanies the most awesome lunch and dinner conversations about MBE questions. If i pass the bar, it is all because of this group.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him.” – Henry David Thoreau

This snakeskin belt is my mother’s. Someone gave it to her as a gift on her wedding day, and she just had it tucked away in her closet for 20 years. I, of course, came across it, and squealed delightfully the minute I got my hands on it. She let me have it, and I pair it with as many things as I can. She says it came from Vietnam, so I love it even more.

I woke up at six – effing – thirty this morning. I don’t think I even slept that well last night. I rolled out of bed at 7, showered, and started putting aside some clothes for the bar trip. In that pile, I saw this skirt and decided to work with it today. I picked it up for $10 at H&M a few weeks back, and wasn’t sure how it wear it really. It’s kind of long, and high-waisted, but the pockets and the linen sold me. It came with a linen belt too, but i decided my favorite belt would be more fun.

uncharacteristically chipper at 730 in the morning

Gloomy skies make me want to wear grey all the time. Although it’s overcast, I love this weather for a few reasons. 1) I’m stuck inside from 9 am to at least 9 pm, so you bummin’ lazy summer people can suffer somewhat with me, 2) the gloom makes me focus more on my studies by not wanting to go outside for some fresh air and sun, and 3) when i did get a chance to snap these pics this morning, it makes for great photography lighting!

oh, and in case you were wondering, i haven’t watered my lawn in ages bc the sprinklers are broken, and the reflection in my aviators is my air conditioner thingamajig covered in cobwebs. I’m not a good housewife during the bar.

my favorite aviators from aldo

Every single one of my shades are from Aldo. I love the accessories they carry!!! Since I throw them around everywhere and loose my sunglasses constantly, I don’t feel bad about manhandling Aldo shades because they are insanely cheap [$12] and feel awesome!!!! When they go bad, it’s an excuse to purchase the next set of fun shades. I want to protect these, however, because it is so hard to find the perfect pair of aviators. These are men’s size, but they are my absolute aviators yet, so i purchased an awesome yellow case to protect them for only $5 at the outlet!

These boots are pull up, but they have this clasp in the back that’s so pretty and unique…but not very comfortable when you want to cross your legs. I ended up taking them off to sit indian style to study for the rest of the day. *_*
