1. Just because it was warm yesterday doesn’t mean that it will be warm today, check the forecast before getting dressed.

2. It is possible to have absurd attachments to inanimate objects, i.e. my sigg water bottle, my iPod, vending machines in general.

3. My glasses aren’t as strong a prescription as my contacts, and this is becoming more and more of a glaring problem as time wears on and my eyes wear out (regardless of how cool my glasses are).

4. If your alarm goes off at 8:15, that is because it is in your best interest to get up at 8:15. Hitting the snooze button for 45 minutes is not conducive to getting your life in order.

5. The picture window that takes up a whole wall of the law library is wonderful most of the year, but when it is cold outside, it is freezing anywhere within 20 feet of the glass (an area which encompasses half the tables).

6. Five Points Deli has the best tea in america that doesn’t come out of someone’s mother’s rubbermaid pitcher that has been pouring tea my whole life. I love to watch people make sweet tea. It makes me happy. Makes me think of my grandmother for some reason. It actually makes me think of when she used to sprinkle sugar over cut up strawberries and then let them sit in the refrigerator for a few hours and it would magically make strawberry shortcake topping.

7. I love to sit on the yellow benches outside of the library, but still inside the building and watch people walk by. Kent sat out there with me today while I ate lunch. It was fun, I enjoyed it.

8. Brandon Ansley is awesome.

haven’t been keeping up livejournal as well as I have been blogger, so
you might want to go to www.charlsiekate.blogspot.com.  I am going to try to get it fixed, but until then…..

Pleasure Reading

As you first see him he wonders frequently whether he is not without honor and slightly mad, a shameful and obscene thinness glistening on the surface of the world like oil on a clean pond, these occasions being varied, of course, with those in which he thinks himself rather an exceptional young man, thoroughly sophisticated, well adjusted to his environment, and somewhat more significant than any one else he knows.   This was his healthy state and it made him cheerful, pleasant, and very attractive to intelligent men and to all women. In this state he considered that he would one day accomplish some quiet subtle thing that the elect would deem worthy and, passing on, would join the dimmer stars in a nebulous, indeterminate heaven half-way between death and immortality.
