Fun Stuff


I want this!

It’s a TARDIS cookie jar!  You can find it on http://www.bbcamericashop.com.  Now that you know where to find it, you can go ahead and buy it for me.  It’s ok, I’ll wait.

And I realize that I’ve just “outed” myself as a Doctor Who lover, but really, it’s an awesome show.  Go watch it.

So.  Law School.  Here’s the thing, I really like law school.  I do.  Even on days like today, when it is completely kicking my ass.

I’ve started outlining, I’m working on my memo like crazy, and I’m doing everything I can to keep up with my class readings.  But you know what?  I just can’t do it all!  It’s so much!  I felt much more in control in the beginning of the semester.  I was even able to read ahead most weeks.  But now?  I feel like I’m barely keeping my head above water.

On the plus side, I have this Thursday to look forward to.  My roommate is turning 23 and we are going to Atlantic City to celebrate!  I’ve never been to Atlantic City before, so it should be a lot of fun.  Now I just have to find something to wear…

 

Weekend updates!  I went to a Halloween party Saturday night, and it was so much fun.  And here’s the thing…I went to this party ALONE.  I was originally planning on going with my roommate, but she decided against it.  I texted other people in my class but none of them wanted to go.  So I was left with the question:  should I stay or should I go?  Now I don’t know about you guys, but I rarely go anywhere by myself.  And I especially hate going to parties by myself.  But I put my big girl shoes on (and my pretty sweet Snow White costume) and went.  And you know what?  I had FUN.  I even played some drinking games with my classmates, including Never Have I Ever.  I have got to be the most innocent person in my section.  I couldn’t believe some of the things my classmates have done!  Good God.  Fortunately that game didn’t last very long.

Now we’re going into the final stretch.  I honestly can’t believe how fast this semester is going!  I still remember being in orientation, and now I’m starting to study for finals.  Crazy.  We just got our graded memo assignment (this is basically our final for legal writing), we have a legal research exam on Wednesday (but this class is pass/fail, so no worries), and now the outlining begins!  I’ve been putting off outlining but I can’t justify putting it off any longer.  It’s go time!  I really want to do well (as does every other law student), and I don’t want to end the semester thinking I could have done more to prepare.

Ready?  Set?  GO!

This is how I’m spending my time in the law school library.  I was originally planning on doing some actual work before my 5pm meeting, but the work I was planning on doing I unfortunately left in the trunk of my car.  And my car is parked a fair bit away from the law school.  And it’s cold out.  And I found a really comfy nook in the library.  And I don’t want to, okay?  SO BACK OFF.

*clears throat*  Okay, where was I?  Right, zombie apocalypse.  Brains to protect, zombies to kill, and all that.  I promise to write back relatively soon with updates from the weekend.  I had fun, but not as much fun as some people (some chick in another section got a DUI..whatttt?).  Now back to the zombies!

And PS – installing this game on my computer in the middle of the semester was probably not my brightest idea.

 

First of all, let me just say that drinking and blogging don’t mix.  Ok, now for the big stuff.

Remember when I said I felt pretty good about my midterm?  Yeah…well, now I feel like I screwed up majorly.  I decided in advance that I wasn’t going to talk to anyone about the exam (taking it once is bad enough, right?), but of course I can’t stop my classmates from talking about it around me.  One guy went into great detail about his analysis, and even had time to go into policy on his exam answer.  Um, I barely had enough time to  finish answering the question.  But now I know what to expect, and if I do poorly I’m planning on scheduling a meeting with my professor to discuss how I can do better.

Now for the good news…it’s fall break!  Holy crap, I can’t believe how much time has passed since starting school.  I drove my roommate to the airport bright and early this morning and then drove home.  I brought all of my books and study aids home so hopefully I’ll be able to get some studying done.  I know, I’m a nerd.  And tonight I’m going out for sushi with my mom.  This will be a fun and productive break (fingers crossed!).

Edit:  This is completely off topic, but I just got an email from AARP.  Dude, I’m too young for this shit.  I’m only 24!

*The great Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon.  Awesome movie.  Even if Mel Gibson is now a douche*

This has absolutely nothing to do with law school, but it makes me laugh every time I see it.  Enjoy!
