So here I am in my home away from home.

[I hope by now I don't need to tell you I'm in the library.]

And some Schmuck [yes, I know Yiddish] walks in giving a group of bright eyed prospectives a tour.

First off, tours of the library always make me feel weird. Like I am a caged animal at the zoo. Second, law school tours are kinda dumb when you think about it. I know because I've given them.

["Look kids, here's the cafeteria, a random empty classroom and the LIBRARY... isn't law school exciting?!?"]

But I digress. So this person walks by and comments, 'ummm, I really don't know why people are in the library right now...'

Grrr. Freakin' GRRRR. Here I am on a Friday morning in the library. I get it, my life sucks. Confirming that fact to 20 prospectives doesn't make you look cool. And it doesn't make me any happier to be here.

In response: I indignantly stuck my tongue out at him.
[...yeah, that'll teach HIM!]

Love is all you need...

Loving that Thursday is my Friday!!!

So, I haven't posted in far too long but let me just tell you- life is INSANE. Details of the ridiculousness will surely follow...

Anyways, for the time being, I just wanted to give a shout out to my main manfriend. My wonderful guy. I've been having a rough week. [and it's one Week 1.5] I called him for a little pep talk but unfortch he was being a big kid and had busy work like things to do.

NOTE: If you don;t want to be subjected to a little ooey-gooeyness
STOP reading here!

To lift my spirits though he sent me a little message:

At 1:20 PM
Smile baby...and I want a real one cuz its the most beautiful one I know.
And if I didn't say it loud enough, I LOOVE you.

Even though he doesn't read this, thanks hunnie!!! You made my day!

Caught in a Bad Romance

Happy Wednesday!

Today marks the first (real) day of Spring 2010. While some of us- for instance, yours truly- started on Monday, many law students begin the second part of their academic year on this beautiful, sunny, California day.

Hello Socal Winter!!!

Anyhoo, with the start of a new semester I can’t help but feel that pang of excited anticipation- which is quickly followed by semi truck collision of apprehension. As you might have heard, like, in the preceding post, I went to the Lady Gaga concert (I know, I won’t drop it). And I’ve decided my relationship with law school is one bad romance.

Here’s Why:

1. “I want your ugly, I want your disease...”

Law School Abuse: I used to feel like a superstar. Rejection for most incoming law students is really not their thing. No was never a word any of us heard a whole lot in our past lives. NOW: Rejection is the name of the law school game. Rejection NOW just means someone is better, TRY HARDER. It’s awful but I can hear the self doubt. Battered Law Student Syndrome, if you will!

2. “I want your drama, the touch of your hand...”

Law School = High School! Everyone knows it! From rumored make outs, to rumored stalking, rumored cheating I’ve heard people accused of all sorts of things. And I haven’t escaped it- trust you me!

3. “I want your love, I want your revenge...”

Obsession: Sometimes it seems I just can’t get enough. No matter what, I go back from more. I live a very involved law school life. I’m on SBA, Admissions Student Panels, I’m a Research Assistant. I live on campus- and yet I keep saying yes to Law School.

....You know that I want you, And you know that I need you, I want a bad, BAD ROMANCE....

Enter G-Chat:

Classmate: how was your break?

me: haha - yeah. my break was way too short

Classmate: ditto, im not ready

me: i dunno im started to get excited but ill probably feel really different in a week

Classmate: exactly

Don't Let it Go Away, This Feeling has got to Stay...


Happy New Year!

Back to school, back to school

...and did I mention two days early?!

Anyhoo- it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. Finals ended with a bang and a pang of ‘shit that was harder than I expected.’ But, I made it through to my favorite event the END OF FINALS PARTY. The EOFP is one of the best events law school has to offer. Imagine hundreds of law students who have been sober for a month or more trying to let off some steam, forgetting that they have the alcohol tolerance of a toddler. This year was no different- except for my behavior. Exceptionally stellar.

Break passed quickly- a wedding, a LADY GAGA concert and cramming as much time with family and friends as possible.

And a new year means a new attitude.

This past year was all about learning. It was tough but it got better. And I want to remember that!

This new year is about staying present, positive and practical. Take things day by day.

Stay tuned for the ridiculousness of Spring 2010.
