For anyone who's missed the competition, although I think most of the people who would be interested on my f-list are also participating, I'm taking party in DW's Hikago Deathmatch. Round one works can be found here. I... will avoid commenting on the fics for the moment. ^.^;;;

Also, took the bar exam. Really freaking hope that I passed. Because not passing would suck. The two questions I remembered because I had no idea WTF they were asking (one for each day, which is clearly a great record, lol, and I really did write WTF?! next to the one on Wednesday), I later managed to determine that I got right through dumb luck, so hey, good sign! But I also completely missed half an essay question and am pretty sure I screwed up the MPT, so hey, who knows? Results aren't out until November, so I've decided not to worry about it in the mean time. Have had a wicked headache all day, too. When I got on the train last night to head home, I'm pretty sure the conductor thought that I had been drinking or doing drugs or something because he told me to "get home safe." Which just isn't something one says to a person on a rush hour train in NY. Such is my life. @_@ But it made me laugh, so hey, win for him. ^_^

Anyway, I'm on vacation for the first time in forever until I start work in October. Fic will probably get written, although I'm working on an original thing, too, so we'll see which wins. I'm also planning to travel a bit - haven't decided on a destination yet, though, so if anyone's got a recommendation, do let me know! Tentatively eyeing the U.K. - maybe do a run through the major cities in each country? I like the idea of doing Wales and Scotland since I've never been, and of doing England at a time of year when I'm not freezing to death. May pop over to Ireland. Alternatively, I've been looking at doing a cruise, either from Barcelona and seeing most of Italy, or from Vancouver and seeing Alaska. If anyone has actually done any of these things and has a recommendation, that would be kind of awesome.

Nice to see you all again! ♥

You at least showed which Deathmatch group you're not in. :p

Good luck on your bar exam! Although, since it's afterward, it's not luck anymore, is it?

Best of luck with your exams!

I've just got through the first battery of accounting exams so believe me I sympathise. Very painful having such a long wait but I suppose it's at least long enough you can put it out of your mind for a bit? (I feel like a hypocrite saying that).

Also congratulations on work. What are you up to?

Also, UK. I am in the UK, specifically London. Let me know if you do make it over. Other than that, Edinburgh is great, and I had a lot of fun in Barcelona.

(Takes three years min to do the accounting qualifications - and they need somebody to stoke the photocopier in the meantime...)

New York is very cool. Congratulations

I exaggerate. The new graduates get the admin to do (new intake in... about a month!) and most of the first year is college based. I get the impression it's like that in most jobs
