days remaining…

Inspired, I used an actuary table to calculate the remaining years of my life, converted that number to an actual date, and created a dashboard widget that ticks off the remaining days I have left on this earth:   17,747.   Looks more like a Boeing model number than my Deadline.   But there it is.  Oops, look at the time, down to 17,746.

It should surprise no one that I write this on the eve of another practice exam, this one simulated to the hilt at the Jacob Javits Center.  Studying for the bar is eating 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes.  The march towards the future continues, frolicking along that yawning chasm between the potential and the actual.
