Counting Down to "P" Day

I have roughly two months before the start of pupillage, and quite a lot to do before then. The slight urgency of the situation is added to by the fact I am on holiday for most of September. As a good old procrastination tactic I thought I’d write a “To Do” list, and put it on here for any pointers. So, in no particular order I must -

  • Get my hair cut
  • Buy a new suit
  • Find somewhere to live in London [any thoughts on where’s cheap, and in reasonable proximity to the centre would be gratefully received]
  • Call Chambers, ask if they remember me and exactly what date I start
  • Register my pupillage
  • Re-learn all I’m meant to know about Criminal, Family and Civil law [this may not take as long as it ought]
  • Read the book “Eats, shoots and leaves"
  • Buy a new pencil case

That list looks shorter in writing than it does in my head. No doubt more things will occur to me in due course. If anyone can think of anything I’ve forgotten, please let me know!
