A prayer for success

Almighty God, whose hands hold all matters of life, give us grace of success in the work that we do. Help us to give it the careful thought and the strict attention that will lead to success.
Watch over us and govern our actions, that we may not mar its perfection. Show us how to give our best, and let us not despise the toil that is necessary to complete it.

Make our life a successful one, in that every duty you give to us, we do it well. Give us the blessing of your help and guidance, and suffer us not to fail.

In Jesus' name.


Good luck in your test!!!!

I am not a particularly religious person, but I take great comfort in this.  I have been studying as hard as I can between work, MPA classes at U. of Akron, and household duties.  I feel unsure of my readiness but want to take the test so I can move on with my life.

I will do my best and will not fail.  Thanks for the prayer.  Now all I need is my lucky Heidelberg cap (and my admission ticket) and I'll be good to go!

It's not supposed to get above 0 this weekend. Yesterday, 3pm had a windchill of -20, and that was BEFORE it got really cold.

I hate minnesota sometimes

Cold builds character.   ;D

I knew I couldn't say that with a straight face.  CRIPES!!!  It's frickin' cold here in Ohio, too.  Temps predicted to go below zero, with a wind chill making them approach -30F for Sunday.  Now THAT'S "tit-nipply" cold.

Walk it by me and I'll carve off a piece.

Ooh, that doesn't sound right...

How 'bout "still mooing?"

Damn, that doesn't sound right, either.  Let's see...wave it over a hot grill for a little radiant heat.

Still twitchin' is the only correct response.
Extra-rare. This should be a poll!

it just might be the other way around.

being a vocab whore is necessary to having a good rc score?

Necessary but not sufficient.

-- Extra Pencils
-- sweater in case it's cold, tank top underneathe incase i get hot
-- ID
-- Admissions Ticket
-- banana and granola bar for extra boost of energy during the 10min. break
-- my mind and everything i've learned about the LSATs

FWIW, Under Armour Cold Gear (the compression-fit style garment) helps me stay warm while deer hunting in cold weather--it wicks sweat away from my skin to the outside of the garment, thereby preventing that clammy/cold feeling during long sits on stand.  I figure it'll be useful during the test because I'll probably be sweating up a storm!  And sitting in what may be a cold room (according to my admission ticket) won't help matters.  

I may wear a ball cap, too, to keep my body heat from escaping--IIRC, 30% of the body's heat loss is through the head.

A little slice of leftover venison meatloaf, a dollop of smashed redskin potatoes, salad, water.  Then off to library for more LSAT studying.

The best songs the year of my birth are some of my all time favs...(get ready, I'm a non-trad!)
My Sharona by The Knack   
Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart   
Hot Stuff by Donna Summer   
I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
Ring My Bell by Anita Ward

Uh, those songs were popular the year I graduated from high school.  Dang, I'm ready for AARP.   :o


For me, the aforementioned comforatble = nice house out away from the city with a good size yard and pool and sensible mortage, nice GM cars for me a SO, pets, nice clothes and the ocassion trip.

Granted, I'm in IN, so cost of living is cheap-ish, and I want no kids. Also I figure in SO's $60,000-ish wages.

I'm in Ohio (similar cost of living) and do all of the above on $80K with $35K from SO.  Well, no pool but a vacation/hunting cabin and 90 acres in SE Ohio as well as the primary residence.  Having my own wildlife sanctuary makes me rich.  ;-)


And also, I'm tired of being a grown up, and I want to go back to school for a few years.



I'm glad someone else admitted this first.  Ah, the life of a poor, hard-working, macaroni-and-cheese eating student!   :D
