    Nice wrench, pretty wrench, relaxing wrench
    I decided to leave my computer home a few times a week, rather than lugging it to school. Partly because I get sick of lugging it to school, and partly because I suck at self discipline* - which means if I have the computer, and an internet connection, I'm likely to spend more time hitting "refresh" on my email accounts than reading.

    Today, sans computer, I was being pretty good, staying on track and remaining focused. I kept thinking of blog posts I wanted to write, but was relatively content to hold off until tonight to post.

    I ran out to get some food, stopped by the computer lab to check my e-mail, and was working my way back up to my books when my cell phone rang in my pocket.

    It was the school nurse - J. was in her office with a 102 fever. Yikes!!

    I gobbled down less than half of my lunch, threw the rest away, threw some books into some bags, and hopped on the T.

    Now we're home, and she's on the couch. The Tylenol kicked in, and she's relatively chatty (still has a 100.5 fever), and so I can't read. I should probably clean this damned disgusting house, but look at the opportunity? I can BLOG!! I can read blogs. I can lie on my couch. I can rest with my eyes shut.

    *Hello, bar exam? What the HELL am I going to do???

      During bar studying, you look at how much you have to do. Then you realize how much it sucks and that you paid a BUNCH of money for said suckage. And you think about how much it sucks now and how much MORE it would suck if you had to pay to do it all over again 6 months from now.

      I found all kinds of self discipline I never knew I had while studying for the bar.

      Oh - but it is good to give yourself a little time away now and then.
