Status Update: I'm alive!

The bar exam . . . went, and is over (which is the really important thing). Now I'm slowly getting used to being a non-student who doesn't have to take exams, and who is also a marginally pleasant person to be around. (Current project: remembering how not to pick apart every sentence said to me by someone else because, hey, it isn't a multiple choice question with a trick hidden somewhere in the depths of its syntax, Mom really just wants to know if I want to go shopping with her.)

I'm staying at my parents' house for a few days and catching up with them and some local friends, then headed back up north to pack up my apartment (and work on my [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match story -- check this space next week for pleas for betaing!) and get ready to move to the DC metro area (which [livejournal.com profile] winkingstar and I plan to quite thoroughly conquer, once she gets back from gallivanting around Europe).

Mostly, I'm looking forward to catching up on all of the fun things and life-having that was going on while I've been in seclusion. Links to greatness are always appreciated, as are any suggestions for how to deal with my impending first September in twenty years that won't involve going to school.

What? You think I'm coming back from Europe? I like it over here! Sooooo much awesomer than the States.

Well, I'm pretty sure your parents will take care of the making-you-come-back part, so I'll just eagerly anticipate all of your tales of European awesomeness. :D I'm so glad you're having such a good time!

And when you get back, we can wander around the most tourist-y spots in DC and be friendly and helpful to people from overseas, so that they think the US is awesome, too.

Sadly, it will take a lot more than being friendly to foreigners to make the U.S. anywhere near as awesome as Europe. They have castles! And library castles! And awesome libraries that aren't in castles! They have good food! And, specifically, good chocolate! Even their cheap chocolate is miles kilometres better than American chocolate! They have apfelstreudel! They make you pay if you don't bring your own bag to the grocery store!

To conclude, Europe is just full of exclamation marks! So I guess that means we have to work on adding exclamation marks (not exclamation points!) into American culture!

*is maybe slightly hyper* :D

You know what would probably help us with adding exclamation marks all over the US? Some of that fancy European chocolate, hint hint. ;-)

Happy birthday! :D

I hope that you have a safe and lovely birthday today! Glad to hear that you are alive and that exams are over. :) Hopefully you have time to celebrate! \o/ *throws confetti*

A little drawing for you here. <3

Oh, thank you so much! You're the best! My birthday was wonderful -- I got to spend a good amount of quality time with friends and family, and the chibis are just icing on the cake! Do you mind if I post a copy in my journal, so others can share in the adorability?

I am glad to hear that you had a great birthday! <3 You are free to do whatever you want with the drawing. :)

Well, the first thing I did was ::right click, Set As Desktop Background:: but I'm feeling generous, so Step 2 can be "share with others". :D Thank you again!

Yay on the bar being over and done with!

because, hey, it isn't a multiple choice question with a trick hidden somewhere in the depths of its syntax, Mom really just wants to know if I want to go shopping with her.
Sneeeerk. I am amused. Good luck on that (And the answer for your mother: No! Unless it's for groceries or books, in which case the answer is yes.)

Oh, don't forget to give me your new address at some point *needs to finish the present* *thinks present-y thoughts* *wonders if the present will spontaneously finish assembling itself*

Sounds like you've got good times ahead of you :), yay for adding in more of life's fun! But good luck on figuring out how to drag [livejournal.com profile] winkingstar back from Germany.

Hmm, links to awesomeness.... I've got nothing on a not-me front. On a me front, I've been Miss Spammy-Pants lately, but I'm not sure any of it was actually aweseom. I've written [at least one thing] since you last had time to read things, and currently have about ten thousand bunnies which all would quite like to come out to play (not that I have the bleeping time right at this minute *grrrr*). I've been [reccing] things too.

any suggestions for how to deal with my impending first September in twenty years that won't involve going to school.
Sleep in! Buy crayons and paper and hold a 'lets regress to primary school' party. Build a Lego fortress. Read comic books. Have ice cream for breakfast.

Hee! Mom took me shopping for clothes, eventually, which was great because I rarely shop for them on my own, and I'll need to upgrade my jeans-and-a-t-shirt wardrobe when I start working. :-)

And, oop, thank you for the address reminder! I'll go email that to you in a moment -- still loving the "Oh boy, a present!" anticipation, here.

I've definitely succeeded in having ice cream for breakfast and reading comic books; next on the list will definitely be the crayons & paper idea -- you're brilliant, you are!

*grins* Yeah, that's one of my favourite parts :)

Whee! sounds like fun! And I think I'm not so much brilliant as I am perpetually mentally a child :)
