Here are some logistical, helpful steps to re-applying for the California Law & Ethics exam. What follows is a behind-the-scenes view of me completing those steps, aka a list of annoyances.
- I got an unexpected notification that I had another piece of mail in my PO Box
- Wondered if there was any possibility that the mail was from the BBS saying that there was a mistake and I did not in fact fail by one question. Computer error maybe?
- Went to pick up the mail
- Cursed Chase Bank when I realized they trolled me with junk mail once again
- (Seriously, are they reading this blog? And laughing?)
- I paid for all of my online courses
- …the day before NASW-CA sent out an email with the extra special 20% off coupon code
- Felt frustrated by that, too
- Went on a walk to the post office to mail my completed packet to BBS
- Passed CA smog test car shops that promise “Pass or free retest”
- Thought about the 3 courses I paid for plus the $100 check in the BBS envelope
- Sighed longingly
- Waited in a long line at the post office
- Realized I was standing near an awesome actor in line
- Made conversation with him about everything we have in common
- Let him borrow my pen, asked for baby’s first picture with a celebrity in exchange
- Took a picture
- Realized I may have been the annoying one in this situation. Sorry, Danny Pudi.

Here’s how this is relevant: I find I can re-focus on test prep better after taking a little break and releasing my annoyances via a mini vent session. Maybe you’ve had a test fail or frustrating experience and need a similar mental health break before restarting fresh. Thanks for listening! Now back to studying.
