If my textbooks were liquid, and I could drink them, i would be in much better shape that I am now. Especially if the liquid tasted like water or beer or Mr. Pibb. Not that I don’t love to read, but I am a compulsive drinker. I really need some sort of liquid around at all times so I can be drinking. The reason I have such a high tendency to lose my nalgene bottle is because I take it with me everywhere. I drink on average three nalgene bottles a day, and two or three Mr. Pibbs. Or at least, that is what I have had to drink today. Basically I drink over four liters of liquid a day. I think this is a problem. I didn’t always have this problem, I used to never drink water. i used to eat ice a lot, but then i decided to stop eating ice because it hurts my jaws, so now I don’t put ice in my drinks at all, so that way I won’t eat the ice. Because I drink all day long, when I drink alcohol, I have a hard time not drinking with the same frequency, and this is why I have a tendency to be overserved. it isn’t my fault, it is my ocd problem with liquids. Colder drinks are easier to drink fast, so for the most part, the only liquids I drink cold are cokes and beer. I can’t drink white wine, because I drink it too fast because it is cold, so I drink red wine. If I drink liquor, normally I drink cosmopolitans which have little pieces of ice sometimes, but if I drink another liqour drink I will use ice. Basically, I have an obsessive personality. I think i could have an addictive personality if given the chance, but for the most part I am just obsessive. I have a tendency to eat at the same restaraunt over and over, and read the same books over and over, and whatever, you get the picture. Jennifer says that it is just that I am always paying intent attention to something. Even though i have an attention deficit, the real problem is that I can’t focus on anything for very long, but I am always focusing, and when i am focusing, it is intently. This also leads to me having problems in a large group of people(parties, bars), because I much better one on one, since I either focus on one person and ignore everyone else, or I focus on everyone for five minutes and don’t have a real conversation with anyone. The great thing about adderoll is that it helps me stay focused on one thing, but I just have to make sure I get focused on the right thing, otherwise I will end up studying maps of ancient greece for hours or wasting time writing in my live journal……….oh, and on another note, I have mentioned this before, but it is really interesting that I forget that people in law school are here because they have a certain make up. most people in law school are overly analytical people with surpressed personalities. I mean this is in the nicest way possible. I am overly analytical with a tendency to dwell on things. somehow this works out because, as cristina says, I’m not lacking in the confidence. Actually, more than confidence, i think it is my refusal to think anything but the best possible explanation. if some boy doesn’t like me, well, maybe there is something about me that he doesn’t like, but it isn’t me (this is where the delusion comes in). It takes a lot for meto be convinced that someone really just doesn’t like me, girl or boy. Because, if someone really doesn’t like me, then I just don’t care to know about it, unless there is something I can do to fix the situation. otherwise, I prefer to be ignorant. You should always think the best, because it doesn’t help to think otherwise.

so i have taken the what rule of civil procedure are you, and this is the exciting result:
YOU ARE RULE 8(a)! You are Rule 8, the most laid back of all the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. While your forefather in the Federal Rules may have been a stickler for details and particularity, you have clearly rebelled by being pleasant and easy-going. Rule 8 only requires that a plaintiff provide a short and plain statement of a claim on which a court can grant relief. While there is much to be lauded in your approach, your good nature sometimes gets you in trouble, and you often have to rely on your good friend, Rule 56, to bail you out.
(Rule 56 is Summary Judgment, I’m not sure how this applies.). other than that, I think this is pretty appropriate. I am such a geek, I’ve got to get a life.

my voice is ringing in my ears

I love the spring time, except for the fact that I can’t breathe. I always forget that i have allergies, and they change from year to year. Like one year I was allergic to grass at the tournament, and I couldn’t wear my contacts all week. this year I think it is the yellow pollen, but then again they say that if you can see the pollen, then it is too big to inhale. I had a spectacular weekend, friday night was tons of fun, my wonderful friend Sarah was in town and we painted the town. Saturday I had a blast with Cristina at the mall in atlanta, and saturday night I got to spend time with three of my loves; Betsy, Katie, and Ashley. SInce last week was my most scattered week ever, I left all of my clothes for the ATL on my bed, and had to buy an outfit in atlanta, because I didn’t have any clothes. i’m an idiot. I need someone to follow me around and pick up all the stuff that I drop. Christy said there are lawyers out there that have people like that, so this is an aspiration. Although I kept Betsy’s whole family awake with my coughing, overall it was very enjoyable. Sunday we went to a shower for Ashley and John who are getting married, and I felt very privileged to be included in their list of friends, because I love them. Sunday was also tears, because Katie had to fly back to DC. It was also Katie’s birthday!!! I miss my old life, and lots of times I don’t have time to think about it, but it can be really hard to see my precious friends from college and to know that time is over. It is difficult because I want to live in the past, present and future. I think this was a huge problem in the fall, because I didn’t want to make too many close new friends, because I hadn’t accepted the fact that my old friends were gone. not gone in the sense that they aren’t my friends anymore, but gone in the fact that they aren’t available to take personal days with me and to watch the bourne identity over and over again(just to make sure we didn’t miss anything). Moving on is difficult. Amazingly enough, it makes me feel bad that have made new friends, I kinda feel like I am cheating on my old friends, but at the same time, I am unhappy living in the past. So it is just important to accept the fact that friendships evolve and serve many different purposes as the years progress. I don’t want it to seem like I am categorizing my friends, I don’t want anyone to be labeled an OLD friend or a NEW friend, because both seem impersonal and inappropriate. I don’t know what I am talking about. i love my law school friends, they mean so much to me, this year has been rough. but I wouldn’t be here without my friends from college, and nothing is going to change that. Sorry forthe negative tone of this entry, I’m really not sad. Law school is starting to feel like a small, close knit group of people, I don’t want people to graduate. and i don’t want my second year friends to disappear next year. basically, if you can’t tell, i don’t really embrace change. My new favorite person is Clay Aiken, I think he is awesome. I bought his CD from I-tunes(greatest thing ever), because I think he is the kind of person we should all support. I know a lot of you will be appalled at this confession, but he is a great person, and I can’t believe that he lost american idol, I think it was rigged.

irresponsibility is taking over

in the last 25 hours I have locked myself out of my house, spilt an entire nalgine bottle all over my bed (right before I wanted to go to sleep), and had an alarm clock malfuction that caused me to miss torts. and i really didn’t need to miss torts. I think I am going to blame all of this on the pollen. I did see an awesome movie last night, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I recommend this movie to everyone, all about relationships. On the note of this movie, I have a question for everyone. DO I REMIND YOU OF KIRSTEN DUNST? I can’t figure out this phenomena, but it started a few years ago when a guy in a bar told me I looked like I movie star. I thought he was just telling me I looked pretty, and i say thank you, and he say, “What’s her name? Let me find my girlfriend and find out what her name is, she was in that cheerleader movie.” Well, turns out he thinks I look like Kirsten. After that, my best friend from home, her mother spent the whole movie of Crazy Beautiful thinking that Kirsten looked like me. any of you who have seen this movie will not that she doesn’t take showers and is pretty nuts. Then, not long after that, in a bar in colorado, I had two guys come up to me and tell me that they have been staring at me for the last 45 minutes trying to decide whether or not I was Kirsten Dunst. not just that they thought I looked like her, but that they thought i was her. then one of the guys told me that he has permission from his girlfriend to make out with Kirsten if ever given the chance, and he and his friend were pretty sure i was her. This sounds like the worst pick up line ever, but once these guys were convinced I wasn’t her, they weren’t real interested in talking to me anymore. I think they were at least 18, but I’m not sure. Since then I have had some comments, but when she dyed her hair red, less people commented. Well, now she is back blond, and I watched the movie closely last night to see if maybe I could tell what features we have in common. Really,I am at a loss. different noses, our faces are shaped differently, different body types (most of the time i get body type comments from Julia Stiles, in 10 things I hate about you). Really, I’m not at all offended about looking like Kirsten, she is beautiful. I am just fascinated because I can’t see it. So after the movie last night I told Will that people tell me I look like Kirsten, and his response was, “Yeah, I was going to say that, she did remind me of you.” I would love to hear what ya’ll think about this, really, I’m fascinated.

me and caffeine are over

I’m going to have to end a long term relationship with a very special drug. I am breaking up with caffeine. This is going to be very difficult, since my favorite drink is Mr. Pibb (sometimes coke) and my favorite food is chocolate. Plus caffeine is in everything else that I depend on. Since I suffer from migraines, my migraine medicine has caffeine in it. I also love coffee, except I have been drinking decaf coffee for a while. the reason I am going to have to break off this relationship is because I took an alka seltzer morning relief this morning, and I am a wreck. I hate feeling like this. I rolled out of bed this morning, regretting all of the beer I drank last night, and got the bright idea to roll on over to the BP across the street (in my pajamas). I thought that a power aid and a morning relief would make me feel better, what I didn’t think about was how the women behind the counter was going to laugh at what I looked like and what I was buying. and she did laugh. whatever. Then I ate some lasagna and watched the quality film st elmos fire on one of the HBOs we pay millions of dollars for. Now I am sitting in class having a panic attack because of the caffeine in the morning relief I took. I mean, i might start grinding my teeth soon. Appel is being pretty funny though, I love this class. He puts so much time and effort into the presentation of the information in this class, I just really appreciate the effort.
Back to last night, I had a GREAT time last night. I am becoming a regular at nowhere bar (which means I get to run into John Paul on a regular basis), they didn’t even ID me when i came in the door. I have been told before that this isn’t because I look like I’m 21, but only that they know me, and that this isn’t a good thing. I hate to still be talking about this, but I am still having a panic attack. Last night was a blast, I love all my law school friends, especially all of the awesome guys who think being gay is the only reason a guy wouldn’t want to date me. I appreciate the support, love and encouragement. Ian, Nick and Jason have a list of four second year boys that I am allowed to go out with, two of which have girlfriends. Awesome. Dave took on the heavy burden of making sure that maggie and I both made it home okay last night, watching to make sure we got in the door without someone grabbing us before driving off (all boys should do this). I love maggie. I wish she and I could hang out all the time. My bitches and I are still planning on laying out somewhere today, I’m not sure where. hopefully somewhere with lots of undergrads that work out too much and sleep in the tanning bed. I wonder if maggie got her paper written this morning. I am in an awesome mood. okay, 12:20, time to go.

I am going to pass out. I am so sleepy. For lunch today, Christy, Allison, Cristina, Cybil and I met my mom and Bella at Big City Bread. This was cybil’s bright idea, and it was a great idea. Bella had a blast eating rocks and slobbering on the small children who wanted to love on her. Mama and Bella are in town for Bella’s check up, she tore her ACL playing basketball with Travers in early december, and had to have reconstructive surgery. for those of you who don’t know, Bella is my family’s english bulldog. really she is the most beloved child these days with my parents. Bo is our other dog, who is also well loved, but doesn’t demand the attention that Bella does. Really, i don’t know why I am so sleepy, I have got to snap out of this coma.
The greatest thing that has happened so far today is that contracts class has been cancelled for tomorrow. I am very happy about this. This is going to open up the opportunity for me and my bitches (Cristina, Allison, Cybil, Allison, Elizabeth, etc) to lay out in the sun, because it is going to be 77 degrees tomorrow. I’m so pumped.
So tonight we have a softball game against Y. I’m pretty confident that we are going to win. Our section is obviously superior overall, and I feel good about our chances. Even if we don’t win, we will have more fun than Y, and that is the most important thing. okay, I am going to go pay attention to Lonnie, I think today could be interesting!!! I LOVE CLASS!! I’m looking forward to outlining soon, it should greatly enrich my life.
