Just go steady on the Bar and don't try to cram. Set a schedule and stick with it. Are you doing a bar review course? Those things are worth their weight in gold!
Oh, yeah. I'm doing BarBri - I would never even attempt to do this without it. Will probably do the PMBR three-day course, too. I'm sticking with the homework assignments and working through steadily. Working halftime now, and taking all of July off. I am taking this WAY seriously!
*drools* You have a Lebanese restaurant that close by? And here I thought Ohio was not a mecca of foodstuffs. The best out in the SF,CA area is about twenty miles away, and is only pseudo-Lebanese (being mostly generic middle-eastern). Lebanese and Irish, two foodstuffs I search for every time I travel...
They just opened. It's a very sandwich-oriented place, but tasty.
I've been lucky enough to have some home-made Lebanese - our next-door neighbors are Lebanese!
It's different than Aladdin's. More of a sandwich (pita) sort of place. I haven't had their hummous yet. There baba ganoush was good, but after Israel I am utterly spoiled. But the chicken shwarma on pita is a treasure, and the meat pie is outstanding. Of course, you being all vegetarian....
I loveloveLOVE when chains close and unusual li'l mom'n'pops take over!
As for the bar exam; Damn, exciting! No more tests! Let's go, Gini! (clap-clap! Clap-clap-clap!)
My gawd. I can here your voice, echoing around a high school gym! Scaaaary! Some memories just never leave you. ;-)
*dances* CONGRATS! :D
I hope you have some mint in that herb garden...they are essential in a mojito! Great drink for summer pool parties and fourth of july and such...
Yup. They are notorious for taking over, but I just cheerfully rip them almost completely up every year, and so far they have stayed under control.
I don't think I've congratulated you yet. It's because I'm not putting words together very well at the moment, and I'd like to say more than "woo hoo" or "you rock" or "way to go."
It occurs to me that I should go ahead and say those things, just so you know I care. One of these days I'll shoot for articulate. Meanwhile...
You go, Girl!
Thanks, sweetie! My flist reading has gone all to shit - so sorry I've been so absent!
Congrats again on gradumacating!
If I were you, I would totally be wiped out and would not be able to even conjure the idea of studying for yet another exam. Go you!
I'm Middle Eastern (but not Lebanese) and am lucky enough to have parents who cook our ethnic foods VERY well. My mother's baklava is known in our neighborhood!
Have you ever thought of attempting to try making tabouli or shawarma at home? Your neighbors probably would offer a good recipe and you can always check out any local Middle Eastern grocery stores for ingredients. Learning to make the food at home might be a worthy investment since you seem to enjoy it so much, :)
Yes, but at this point the time factor is the big drawback. Perhaps once I finish the bar and can settle into such things, this will be an option (there is an Indian grocery store not too far from us!).
Way to go on the finishing school thing. My turn to go next year. So what are you going to do once you finally finish with the studying and the tests? Are you taking time off or going right into a job?
Going to Europe for almost 3 weeks, then back to work.
You got a big shiny medal for the cum laude awesomeness? *totally jealous* I got magna cum laude and all I got was my parents yelling at me for not telling them so they could put it on my graduation announcements. (Not my fault - I didn't know 'til I saw the program!)
Congratulations and well done! You will no doubt pwn the bar exam into oblivion, and then spend the day dancing and singing about your mighty triumph. *nods firmly*
I'm more seeing "stagger away in one piece and spend the next day sleeping," but I appreciate the vote of confidence!
