  1. Attorney. The bar exam is professional hazing.

    After having owned Guinea pigs for over 8 years I discovered a few days ago that my Guineas groom eachother. Now I can't stop noticing it.


    I had to let that out...

    You don't have articling down there do you? :)

  4. Nope. I had to look it up to figure out what it was. That seems a far better method than making people sit for a 12 hour exam spread over two days.

    Ah...but we have both the written exams and the articling period. Now that is hazing.

    Although at great distance I say that I learned more in three months of articling than I did in three years of law school.

    But it is all in the good service of protecting the public from bad lawyers.

    Met up with a friend I haven't spoken to in years recently and had a great time discussing everything from books to Linux distros. My TBR pile has accordingly exploded. I really need to get used to ebooks because my apt definitely doesn't have room for all the books I want to get!

    On another note, how did I let someone coerce me into writing a 3 day novel?! This is going to be interesting ...

    Upside of Pokemon Go: Plenty of incentive to go out for walks and get exercise, and play with my young siblings (age 5 and 7).

    Downside of Pokemon Go: Being woken up far too early by said siblings when they want me to take them Pokemon hunting at seven in the morning.

    Even bigger downside. Being the only person in your group of friends with a phone too horrible to be able to play pokemon go...

    Sarcasm noted. It's not that my phone's BAD, it's just not an iPhone or an Android. I'm quite content with my little Nokia other than the no Pokemon thing. XD

    Fair enough haha :) My phone is a partly-broken-down LG, which I jokingly refer to as the LG Optimus Prime in an attempt to make me feel like it is still a functional device

  13. Has anyone ever thought that the reason we have a base 10 number system is that we have 10 fingers and we count on our fingers?!

  16. Boom, day 1 done. This was the written portion. I ran some numbers and I figured over the whole 6 hours I was pumping about 1666 words an hour. But when my hands were pumping on the keyboard I was cracking at about 2887 words an hour. One more day then I can write again.

    Weird dream of the day: Just before waking up this morning, I had a dream that someone rewrote "I'll Make a Man Out of You" to be from Shan Yu's perspective ("I'll Make a Hun Out of You"?), and made a Youtube video to match.

    Not gonna lie, I kind of want this to happen now. XDDD

    Well...I made the plunge into Scrivener. Finally. Let me just say that I recall the learning curve as having been huge last time I played around with it. Yep. It's still hard as **** to use. But hey, one neat thing is that I can write my book in scenes. For a pantser like me that just writes straight through, this will be a huge adjustment. But maybe a beneficial one? It's time to grow up and organize my work like a professional.
