I found this PDF of the 1,000 Most Frequently Used Words. It's a great, useful, neatly compiled list of the words we use most often in the English language. I'm going to go through this PDF document before I begin my practice sessions to 1. make sure my hands know where to go when I hear/see these words. 2. make sure I have a ready brief for each and every one of these 1,000 words. After memorizing the brief forms of these 1,000 words, I want to learn the 1,000 most frequently used phrases. If anyone has that, would you please share? Thanks so much in advance! I hope everyone's summer is going well so far! I'm glad it's cooling a bit in my part of Los Angeles... but not nearly as much as I'd like. I like the sun, but not too, too much. Hehehe. BTW, I'm not sitting out with my first court reporter tomorrow. We bumped it up to Wednesday instead because of a calendar conflict. Instead I'm going to be studying the whole day tomorrow with my guy. He'll be at work, and I'll be studying away. YAY!
