1. Call your Professor by his first name while you are eating lunch with other students. (As in yelling, “Hey Lonnie Brown!” outside between the locker room and the Terry college of business).

2. Sleep late, finally make it to the library around noon.

3. Play on the internet until 2.

4. Eat lunch outside and humiliate self (see 1)

5. Talk to other students about previous final (bad for self esteem)

6. Hang out with second years who have no sympathy and distract you with smoothies that taste funny. (especially when you didn’t need another smoothie, one smoothie a day is enough)

7. Check live journals compulsively

8. Call favorite teacher from high school who you haven’t spoken to since 10th grade.

9. Get just enough work done to realize that you probably could have learned all of the information if you have paid attention 1/4 of the time and had ever done your homework. (this is also bad for morale and self esteem)

10. Daydream about friday night and talk to other students about how much alcohol we are going to consume. We are going to be WASTED. (law students are so suppressed, I think friday could be really dangerous.

11. Answer phone calls from very good looking boy who doesn’t live in town and who only calls sporadically and never wants much except to see what I’m up to and tell me hey. (this is good for self esteem, but bad for concentration, increases daydreams)

12. Check ferry rates and schedules between greek islands. (also distracting and increases daydreams)

13. Hang out with roommate who is about to graduate, who also has an exam tomorrow and doesn’t want to study, and who is moving far away and therefore time is precious and can always justify not studying to chat.

14. Update live journal with inane thoughts.

15. Read blogs of people you don’t know and will never meet.

okay. that is enough for me. I am signing off. I love you all, I miss you all, I miss myself. I’m glad I’m not a crier, because otherwise I might be a puddle of tears. I’ve decided to give this week to God, and if he wants me to be an attorney, he will make it okay as long as I do as much as I can, and I can do more if I believe that I am doing it for God. I am a lily of the field. (good motivation). And if I do good, it is because God wanted me too, not because I am especially talented (don’t want to be insufferably smug – ha, like I’ll ever have those kinds of grades) So, less pressure, more motivation. New Mantra – “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

I have gotten very little done all day, including the four hour exam I took this morning. But since I am letting my mind wander, I want to express to y’all something I am very excited about. I can’t wait for the new movie TROY to come out next week. I would buy tickets now if I thought I needed to. In addition to my excitement about this super cool movie with super cute actors set in the super cool setting of ancient greece (I’m a bit of a classics geek), I will be departing the continent three weeks from friday and arriving in modern day greece. One Athens to the next. I won’t be staying in athens, but I will be in greece a little over six weeks. And the craziest thing about this trip, is that so much has been going on in the past two months that I haven’t even had a chance to think about going. And I’m not going to have time to think about it until next week. I am really looking forward to blogging this summer and reading everyone else’s blog. That way if people want to know what I’m doing, they can check it out. Wow, six weeks in Europe on two islands in the mediterranean, eight hours of credit, just me, some tulane law students and justice scalia. I bet he will look hot out by the pool, somehow from his picture in our property book that he probably pretty hairy….
