This Monday is especially worse than usual only because I have all these things I’m worrying about in my head. For starters, I still have to pack a shit load of my stuff at home. We have to be about of our apartment by this Friday (3/28) and my stuff is still all over the place. And I mean my stuff only (the hubs is not a pack-rat like moi). There are all these things I have apparently held on to over the years. Letters from friends from back in the day (we’re talking high school here…and even a few from junior high); old pictures (oh man, I have to post one of them up…as soon as our scanner is un-packed…hilarious photo of Sol, Girlie, Trish, & I from 1996); knick-knacks…you name it. I keep them around because I’m still dead-set on the idea of putting together a scrapbook. So for now, I can’t throw them away.
Then there’s also this thing called CLE. Continuing Legal Education classes. Both NY and NJ require us newly admitted lawyers to take a certain number of hours of classes. It’s such bullcrap. In any case, I missed a class last semester, so now I have to make it up. Problem is, the class I need to make-up is scheduled tonight, but I just got my letter with a brand-new registration form last week. So needless to say, I have not sent it my payment (yes, this shiite is not free) and so I may not be able to take it tonight. The next cycle starts in the summer and apparently, that one doesn’t count in terms of credits. Argh! Confusing. To top it all off, no one is answering the phones! It’s almost 10 am for pete’s sake!!!
Then I got a letter from the NY Board of Admissions last Friday regarding my application. Apparently, they need proof of my immigration status to make sure I'm not an illegal alien. So now I have to get a certified copy of my green card and send it in ASAP so they can process my application to be admitted in NY as a lawyer.
Another major concern is that tonight, the hubs and I are planning to put in a bid for a townhouse we saw in Fort Lee. Mark is going over to our realtor tonight to sign all the documents. I’d like to be there, but I don’t know if I can due to CLE (if I get in). So we’ll see how it goes. May the fates be with us!
