I am never going to make it. I’m not going to make it through the next thirty minutes of this class, even though Appel is being entertaining, and called on Price, who is even more entertaining. Then i am never going to make it through the rest of the day. And tomorrow, I’m never going to be able to sit still for three hours on the plane. What is my problem? mostly it is that I am a hyperactive child with no self control. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!! Really, i don’t know when i have been so excited. I am literally thrilled. Couldn’t be happier. My cup runneth over. I am going to colorado tomorrow to go skiing and hang out with very dear friends. Aspen got a foot of snow last night. I can’t breathe. Really, the anticipation of things is very rewarding. Appel just realized that this is our last class, and that he is “all that is standing between us and spring break.” Loud outburst and cheers from all the suppressed individals. It is amazing, I have been around so many law students, i actually forgot that they are all suppressed individuals, and because of this, I have been treating them as non-suppressed individuals, and I can’t understand their responses. Now I understand. Not that I’m not naturally a suppressed individual, but I have been working on not being one, it is a constant battle. I need to get out more. I did go out last night, and it was a lot more fun that I expected. I had a really good time. I hadn’t been to nowhere bar in a very long time, and although I know why I haven’t been there in a long time, I also know why I used to go there all the time. It is a very classic bar. but it is so classic, that I still run into the same people there that I ran into there four years ago. and the amazing part, is some of the people I run into, were fifth year seniors four years ago. and although they are no longer in school, they are still at nowhere bar. This is the longest class I have ever sat through. I think with all the time I have spent at nowhere I should have at least learned how to play pool, but sadly enough, that is a skill I never picked up. I sure hope I don’t get hurt skiing next week. I have such a problem with gravity sometime. I am so excited. I think i want to start going to Caliente Cab more often, we went to eat there last night and it was lots of fun. I can’t decide whether I want to take my laptop to colorado with me. I think i am going to leave it here, to make me feel like I am really walking away from school for a week and not looking back. I need a break, and when i come back from my break, I am going to be a new person, a new student, and I am going to be so productive, it is going to be very impressive. Until then, I am going to ski and drink fat tire with australian boys, famous people, and my very good friends. I am the luckiest person in america.

longest week ever

I have to say that this is the longest week of my life. well, maybe that is a stretch, but it is close to the the truth. I broke my rule for myself and went running with Cristina again, and although I am proud of us being so disciplined, and I am proud that we have been running at the same pace every day, I am very sore. The one upside to all of this pain is that I have been sleeping like a champ lately. Jennifer commented yesterday that she doesn’t know how I sleep at night, considering the precarious situations I have a tendency to put myself in, and my best answer is because I can’t stay awake. I also played softball last night, which was tons of fun, but i could have hurt myself doing that too (I am very accident prone). I just want to give a shout-out to my entire team, they did a hell of a job, Christian did such a great job getting us all together, Jason was an excellent pitcher, Christy brought rice krispy treats, and the rest of us looked really good running back and forth off the field. The other team was entirely too together, they were quite serious and I am sure they have practice (what losers). The best part was that I got to use one of Cristina’s gloves, and didn’t have to use a yucky glove from the intramurals office. I gave my oral argument last night, which is much more nerve racking than I ever expect it to be. But my judges were very nice and I made a new friend with Hui, the boy I argued against. I can’t wait for spring break, it is going to be so great. Yesterday was a very long day. I need to pack tonight, i don’t mind packing, I hate unpacking. okay, I am going to go listen to Appel, he is in a great mood today, I met his dog last night, he and his wife were wandering around the law school with their dog, tess. Appel wanted to know if we were doing our oral argument, and it was all I could do not to say, no, we just like to stand outside the hatton lovejoy courtroom in suits to gain strength to survive law school. but i didn’t, I just smiled and said, yep.

thoughts to think about

I love quotes. it is really a problem. I have a scrolling quote bar at the top of my internet browser. So here is one of my favorite quotes. (I am also borderline obsessed with C.S. Lewis, i might have to give you more than one quote).

“Perfect love, we know, casteth out fear. But so do several other things – ignorance, alcohol, passion, presumption and stupidity. it is very desirable that we should all advance to that perfection of love in which we shall fear no longer, but it is very undesirable, until we have reached that stage, that we should allow any inferior agent to cast out out fear.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The World’s Last Night

“For every attempt to see the shape of eternity except through the lens of Time destroys your knowledge of Freedom.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce.

I am not allowed to go running with Cristina anymore, since after we run I have a hard time walking. And walking is very important these days.

Mr. Pibb

I think pibb extra is a disgrace. I loved Mr. Pibb, and saw no reason why the name or the drink needed to be changed. not that I don’t drink pibb extra, but I boycotted for about a year after they changed it. Cristina and Elizabeth and I are on the fifth floor of the main library, pretending to be undergrads. I love this library, it has lots of books, and not too many people. I am very behind on my school work and can’t get motivated. The weather is too wonderful. Cristina and i went for a run yesterday, and we decided that since we were both out of shape we should take it easy and not run too fast or too long. so we ran for about 25 minutes, and then looked at the map of the botanical gardens to see how far we had gone, and it looked like we had run about 2.2 miles, which was pretty slow for us, and I thought it was probably a good thing we hadn’t run too far. But then we looked at the map again and realized that we left out part of our run and had really run 3 miles. this wasn’t such a great thing, because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to walk today. Actually, I feel okay today, but I know tomorrow it is going to hit me pretty hard. I have two new favorite people, (they aren’t actually new people, and I have always liked them, but I have recently decided that they are favorites). Allison and Christy, can we hang out? Can I adopt ya’ll, or do ya’ll want to adopt me? either way, we should work something out, because ya’ll are awesome. And I want to specify that ya’ll are awesome individually, not just as a pair. In other news, my two friends in Aspen, Christie (different from Christy), and Jamie are anticipating my arrival. I talked to them yesterday and they were taking beer up to the top of the mountain and then planning on skiing down. Last time they attempted this intelligent plan, Christie had to be skied down by her Norweigen friend, and Jamie had to have ski patrol ski her down. I don’t think I will be available to participate in similar activities, due to the fact that I’m not that confident in my skiing abilities and I anticipate serious problems with the altitude (I get dehydrated and tired). But they sound like a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see the mountains. I love the mountains. they make me so happy, I can’t even express my attachment. And I haven’t been skiing in two years, so this is also exciting. Plus Christie says that we are going to have tons of fun at the bars in Aspen so to bring cute clothes. Hmmmmm. It is hard to think about when it is 70 degrees here. Okay, I am going to go read contracts. if I don’t see youregularly, I miss you, and I love you all.

well, if the weather keeps up like this, I’m never going to make it till may. My quality of life has at least doubled in the last 48 hours. Yesterday, while in augusta, I sat on my front porch and ate zaxby’s with my parents. I was actually a little worried about getting a sun burn it was so beautiful. it would have been the perfect day for a run, but since I spent saturday night hanging out with willie nelson and my brother Travers, I was feeling a little under the weather and running was out of the question. so instead, i went inside and watched t.v. with my dog, Bella. Bella is the greatest dog ever. Bo, our other dog is also awesome, but he wouldn’t dream of being inside on such a beautiful day (also he is a little high strung). Bella would have liked to have been outside, but she tore her ACL playing basketball with Travers in the december, and is still recovering. we have to monitor how much time she spends outside. So Bella had to stay inside and watch the crocodile hunter diaries with me (she likes the animal planet). Mama also watched t.v with us. Daddy kept trying to get us to go on a bike ride with him, or a walk, or something, but Mama and I were both recovering from our self induced flu. Needless to say, I got nothing done this weekend. I spent the night in augusta last night, and woke up this morning to get back for class, but I didn’t get up early enough because I am lazy, so I missed Torts. but hey, it’s beautiful outside. I am definitely going to go run today, it is so beautiful, personal happiness is taking over dedication to law school. Cybil and went to the Jackson Street Bookstore today (after we ate lunch at the grill), to smell all the old books and to dream of a life were we could sit around and read old books all day and talk about them. Cybil says that we are going to outlive all the men and one day when we are 85, and there are no men to complicate things, we can just sit around at our beach house, or mountain house, and read books and talk about all the important things in life, instead of talking about guys. Until then, we will continue to over-analysis and discuss. I have so much work today, I should make a list. I don’t think I have ever made a list in my life of things I need to do. Or if I have made a list, it has been of long terms goal, like, things to do before I die. Maybe I made a list of things to do for a whole week, but I think I probably lost the list before the week started. So maybe I won’t make a list. I bet this is why I lose everything and am late everywhere. Lonnie is being pretty structured today in Civil Procedure, rule 20 is such a stimulating topic of discussion. I hate this class. I love this weather and chocolate chip cookies. and movies. I really want to watch lots of old movies sometime soon. old movies I have seen and old movies I haven’t seen. or really, just movies in general. but I think i have too many books to read. or maybe too much homework.
