Torment (aka studying)

God I hate studying. You do too? No. I mean I really really really HATE studying. Way more than you do, I'm serious. My tattoo took 5 1/2 hours of serious pain, and I'd take that over 5 1/2 hours of studying in a heartbeat. It just takes so LONG, and its so BORING. I'm A.D.D., I cant do things that are boring and require long periods of focus, it just doesnt happen. When I finished law school, after 19 years of schooling, I swore I'd never study again. Then I had to take the California Bar, and when I passed that, I swore I'd really never have to study again. And yet, here I am. Again. This time for the Nevada Bar. You want to know how much I hate my job? Enough to voluntarily go through this hell again, that's how much.
So I've taken three weeks off work (unpaid of course); two to study and one for taking the test (yes, its three 8-hour days). And really, its not nearly enough time. And yet the thought of two weeks of nothing but studying is already killing me. I've got 2 days down, 12 to go. and about 12 hours before my roomates need to start keeping me away from sharp objects.
But so far I'm doing it. I want this that much. I mean, how much is too much of a price to pay to get a job you like doing?
Okay, so now back to learning the intricacies of the way Article 9 of the UCC provides priority payment of PMSI's in secured transactions. Wheee.
You all better congratulate me when its over. Both of you.
