at any particular time [flaming pie]…love you, paul mccartney!!! i can’t believe that i have been so fortunate to see you live four times. amazing (including the time that i saw paul with mr. parks). unbelievable.
ok…i actually wanted to write a tint bit about being finished with exams, and about christmas!
first of all – i am DONE with exams!!! i am officially 5/6 done with law school and i can’t believe it. it’s been such a tumultuous and unexpecting trip (“journey” – haha, poppy!). accounting for lawyers sucked; big time. it was a four hour exam, and i actually, truly, wrote 49 (FORTY-NINE!!!) pages for my answers. i mean; what?! who has that much to say about anything, really? apparently i do – about accounting – and lawyers – and GAAP and the model code of professional responsibility, and tax timing differences, and net operating losses and extraordinary items, and even a newly formed LLC, funded in part by a Sub C that is publicy traded and must adhere to SEC disclosure statutes.
why do i know this? i’m not sure, really. i’m not even sure that i know enough about it to advise anyone on what they should do about such subjects. all i really know s that they exists – and you should watch out for them! i cannot believe that my 86 year old professor is going to actually read and grade exams over his holiday break – and determine that some of our answers are right and some of them are wrong – he’s really old. i do like him and respect him; i just think that he should have completely retired about 15 or 20 years ago.
but, this doesn’t matter all that much – i’m DONE!!! like i said before – it’s finally sinking in. i wrote a 40 page outline in two days; i memorized problems; i “tried” to read 96 pages of notes – and now it’s all over, thank god!!! so, today i am off to do all of the christmas-y things that have been put on hold. i somehow have to squish all of this into about 48 hours; all of my shopping (sorry anyone who gets presents late!!!), cooking, fixing up the house. mr. parks and i have our work set out for us. wonder why we haven’t started today already – i guess it’s just a bit overwhelming!
anyway, happy holidays and i’m sure we’ll write some more in the next couple of days, despite the crze. love you all!!!
