OK People, here it goes… The Bar Exam is tomorrow! I think I’m ready… and then sometimes I think I’m absolutely going to fail. But luckily that usually only lasts for a minute. Usually. But really, either way, I’m just so. freaking. excited to be done with this whole thing.
This studying thing has taken over my life and I can’t wait to have it back. I want to do the things I’ve been putting off, like building Addie’s play kitchen and, oh I don’t know, cleaning the house. And more importantly, I want to be able to actually spend time with Addie and David.
Once this exam is over, I’m going to spend a little time relaxing and then I’m going to write, write, write. I haven’t had much time to write lately and ideas have been piling up inside my head. And not just blog posts. I’ve been playing around with ideas of articles to submit for publication for awhile now, but during this bar studying time I’ve had a chance to really let things percolate and I think I’m ready to get serious. I’m making a public commitment here people: I will submit something for publication within the next month. Please hold me to that.
And hey, since this post is sort of all over the place (hello, the bar exam is tomorrow, I’m feeling a little bit crazy here!), let me also mention this: I’m going to BlogHer’12! I officially signed up this weekend! I’m seriously beyond excited about it. A trip to NYC, a chance to meet hundreds of other bloggers, a chance to network and grow my readership and learn about the ins and outs of really making this blogging thing work… Holy cats! Color me exhilarated! So what say you, dear readers? Anyone else thinking of going? Earlybird pricing ends Wednesday, so get your tickets already!
And in the interest of a little self-promotion: please consider nominating one of my posts for Voices of the Year. Or just go vote for one of them that I’ve already nominated. (Again, clearly not feeling bad about self-promotion at this particular moment.)
Finally, I wanted to say a big thank you to the lovely ladies that guest-blogged for me over the past couple weeks. It was great to be able to keep posting without having to break from studying quite so often. (Let’s be honest, I still took a hell of a lot of breaks.) Be sure to check them out:

Thanks ladies! And thank you everyone for bearing with me while I bitched about the bar. When next you hear from me, I’ll be a free woman.
