One month left....

I take comps in exactly a month. For those of you who don't know, even though my last class won't be over until December, comps are what determines whether or not I finish grad school. And have a job, and have enough money to put food on the table, and keep my self esteem, and not cry a lot and be humiliated. I need to go find a paper bag....

Anyways, if you don't see me very much for the next month you'll understand why. Everyone always says to me, I'm sure that you will pass don't worry, but the thing is about half of the people who took the test last time failed on the first attempt. So it isn't as easy as you might think. I would personally like to thank our government for creating the Patriot Act and making my test about a million times harder. Way to go guys.

PS Lailah I'll need a 10 pg brief on the Patriot Act within the week. Thanks.

I'm sure you'll do great, but I'm glad I'm not in your shoes! Good luck!

Dara: here is my brief on the Patriot Act:

Big Brother is real and they've forced the librarians to be their minions.


Done.

I knew I could count on my little Elle Woods. Now how do I stretch that into 5 paragraphs?
