Well, I'm back. I don't think it was a mistake to go, and yet I feel as though I have a lot left to do both before the bar exam and in the next month (generally). However I think it's doable, unless I've grossly underestimated the outstanding tasks. They're just unknown at this point, and hence, worrisome.
Sorta-prize goes to Kat - as I was in and about greater San Diego.
My apologies to any San Diegian/Los Angelian friends that I did not see on the trip, but it was a working vacation and I did manage 6hrs of study per day. This was much aided by Mexican Hot Chocolates, cold water (although the asthma wasn't happy) and various long hikes.
