A day in the life...

Inevitably, we will all make bad decisions in life.  My most recent bad decision was taking a class called "Secured Transactions" this semester.  Don't even ask me what that means because I still don't know.  Needless to say, it's like listening to a banker with a bad lisp explain linear algebra in Mandarin.  

It goes without saying that studying for the Secured exam is a challenge.  Either my ADD is in overdrive or my subconscious is reminding me that I am not cut out for this type of material.  At any rate, I'm finding it impossible to concentrate on the material.  So far, my day has gone as such:

1. Wake up at 5:30 a.m. during earthquake; have visions of dying alone.
2. Finally get back to sleep at 7 a.m. after cleaning up Lucy's "I'm so scared" potty.
3. Get out of bed at 8 a.m., attempt to make myself semi-presentable...and give up on that after several attempts to comb my cowlick only results in a unicorn horn.
4. Head to Panera with good intentions of learning all about something called Priority, which is actually a veiled excuse for getting a cinnamon bagel.
5. Read exactly 5 pages of the ABC's of the UCC:  Article 9, talk to my recently-engaged-friend on the phone, share earthquake stories with my L'ville friends, and get 4 coffee refills in the 2 hours I spend at Panera.  
6. Head home, make and eat lunch, and switch to Con Law.  Amazingly, I've read the entire Equal Protection Clause section of my outline in the 30 minutes I've been reading it. 

Moral of the story:  I have an aversion to any type of law that involves money.  Remind me not to make this mistake again.

There was an earthquake? Wow, think I must have slept right through it.

Wait - it was a bad idea to take secured transactions? I was hoping they offered an ADVANCED secured trans, taught be either Kjo or Weave, that I could take next semester
