And the rum is for all your good vices.

I have tried fourteen different times to start a post today, and nothing is really coming out exactly the way I want it to. I hope that's not an omen about mock trial on Wednesday night! My partner and I have divided up all the tasks, and I am frantically trying to get stuff done today so that I have a couple of days to practice and try to make sure I understand at least a little bit about what's going on...but who knows if I'm going to fully get it together before then.

I am thinking a lot right now about:

What it means to accept myself
Stress management
What I can do to feed my own needs instead of looking to others all the time
Developing stronger friendships/being a better friend/being more responsive to other people's needs
Baking more cupcakes for exams
Whether I really want to move away from this place where I've finally begun to establish a social network

I am trying not to think about:

Job hunting
Exams/grades/why don't employers like me
The accrual method of accounting
Where the hell my W-2 is
Things I don't have the mental or physical strength and endurance to fix right now
The six pounds I've gained
The bar exam
Hearsay and why I don't understand it
All the things I should be doing but am not

Every day is an exercise is figuring out what the hell I'm trying to do in my life...guess it's that way for everyone. All you can do is try to keep your eye on the important stuff and don't forget to stop and smell the beer once in awhile, right?
