Drum roll please...

I finished the Bar Exam!!!!

I don't feel like I deserve to fail, but I don't quite feel like I deserve to pass either. It's been a roller coaster for three days, and now I'm numb.

To kick start the emotions again, more drum roll please....

I'm going to Africa for a year!!!! I leave at the end of August, and I'm going to volunteer teach in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, while also volunteering in a care center for HIV+ orphans. TOTALLY. STOKED. TOTALLY. TERRIFIED.

Which means it's time to say goodbye to this blog for a while. This is the last blog entry I plan to have on blogspot for at least the next year. If you feel like following my adventures in Africa, you'll have to go here.

If I weren't so bad at goodbyes, I'd make this post a little more sentimental. But growing up a child of divorced long-distance parents has made me really awkward and uncomfortable with goodbyes. So let's leave it at this: I'll see you July of 2010!

Wahooo!!!!!! So stoked FOR you! Only bummed that we will be missing each other in Addis by a mere 14 days. Hopefully I will get a chance to see you in The Bend prior to your departure. And did I say Wahoo! yet?! You are finished with the bar!!!!
