all in a day’s work

So…

I thought my 8:30am final today was actually at 1:30pm.  Then I woke up this morning at 9:00am with a weird feeling.  Check Facebook and noticed that there had been no Facebook activity whatsoever among my classmates all morning.  Now I had a really weird feeling.  And that’s when I discovered my most unfortunate error.

Luckily, I kept enough cool to (1) put on a cute outfit & some makeup, (2) call the academic office rather than rushing over to my regularly scheduled final an hour late, and (3) as a result of the phone call was able to schedule a make-up test, albeit with a 30-minute penalty***.

What’s life/law school without a little (mis)adventure?

***UPDATE: Finished said final. I ain’t afraid of no 30-minute penalty, for “brevity is the soul of wit.” NBD.

…The 24 typed pages I turned into 10 tiny handwritten pages of notes inside my textbook didn’t hurt either.

…Neither did my past brushes with catastrophe. My freshman year of college, I woke up for an 8am final AT 8am, and, in those days, I lived a good 20-minute walk away from any classroom on campus.  I power-walked that mile from my dorm room to the exam room, but only after putting on makeup and a sundress.  Got there, filled an entire Bluebook cover-to-cover, front-and-back (as our overachieving-holder-of-like-5-different-degrees-from-different-top-institutions TA had said he expected of us), and got an A.  Apparently, oversight, tardiness, and vanity are recurring themes in my life; here’s hoping As are, too.

"There was a trivia question going around before Super Bowl XLV: Which college has produced the most Super Bowl starting quarterbacks? The answer was Cal, though it was kind of dubious: While Craig Morton (Cowboys, Super Bowl V; Broncos, Super Bowl XII) and Joe Kapp (Vikings, Super Bowl IV) were legitimate Golden Bear standouts, as was Rodgers, Vince Ferragamo (Rams, Super Bowl XIV) struggled during his two seasons in Berkeley before transferring to Nebraska and growing into a big-time pro prospect. Still, we proud alums will take it – and we’re especially gratified that Rodgers became the first former Cal quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl (and remember, another former Bears quarterback, Gale Gilbert, lost five consecutive Super Bowls as a backup for the Bills and Chargers in the ’90s). Given that Bishop, Rodgers’ teammate and fellow alum, also had a great Super Sunday, and another ex-Golden Bears great, the late Les Richter, was one of seven players voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday, it was a momentous weekend for those of us who bleed blue and gold. Now if we can just get that first Rose Bowl berth since 1959 taken care of, a whole lot of us can die happy."
