Happy Christmas!

I know Christmas was yesterday, and I know I haven’t updated in FOREVER – and I’m really sorry about that. 

But I have been at home and I have had a lot of real people to hang out with that I never get to see, and I’ve been lazy and busy with baking and eating and drinking and shopping and sleeping. 

I have posted all of my Chile pictures – look at the bottom of the side bar and you can look at my Chile pictures and my pictures from Costa Rica this summer.  I’m thinking about posting some more picture albums – but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. 

I know I say this all the time – but I do have a lot of thoughts I want to put down on paper – and I’m hoping to get around to it soon.  I also need to start working out again.  All I’ve been doing is eating and drinking lately – which needs to change. 

I’m reading Life of Pi – which I’m really enjoying.  I love being in Augusta – the weather has been wonderful.  I think I am going to lay on the porch swing and read my book for a little while this afternoon. 

Emily and Jennifer left today – which is really sad.  Libby will be here for a few more days, which is nice. 

I still haven’t cemented my new year’s plans – but I’m definitely going to be at the Sugar Bowl. 

Okay, I think I’m going to go watch some primetime in the daytime.

Happy Vaca!

jJust to let everyone know we made it to Chile and we are having a fabulous time. 

Travers is threatening to leave me if I do not hurry up – so the updates and specifics will have to wait until later. 

Kisses – wish you were here – the weather is wonderful!

I’m finished with exams!!!!!  I’m so excited!

Nothing compares to how happy I am to be finished with finals.  The fact that I am going to be spending the next week in South America drinking wine on the coast pales in comparison to the excitement associated with being finished with finals.  Isn’t that sick?  I hate finals (and maybe law school) THAT MUCH. 

I finished late yesterday afternoon, and it of course took me a couple of hours to calm down, after which Christy and I went to dinner at the globe as we are wont to do, and proceeded to celebrate with the winery and then of course nowhere bar and THE GRILL!!!

Megan and I played trivia on the machine at nowhere for about an hour.  It was super fun.  We are really smart. 

Right now I’m laying in my bed, thinking about how I need to get to packing.  Also considering whether or not I have time to go the movie this afternoon.  I really want to go see narnia.  I really won’t have time.  Anyway, it will be crowded, and although I don’t mind going to movies by myself, I don’t like to go to crowded movies by myself. 

And I’m still kind of sick.  And a touch hung over. 

Best quote from last night that I just found on a napkin my pocketbook – "We don’t like each other but we definitely hate you." 

BTW – This time tomorrow I’ll be in the Andes!  And my mom is flipping out because it is suppose to be 90 degrees down there.  Haha – I think that is awesome.  I’ve never been to the southern hemisphere and I’m really pumped about going from winter to summer in 9 short hours. 


I’ll try to post while I’m down there, maybe I’ll be able to post some pictures. 

But if my parents ask me one more time if I have my passport I might lose it on purpose.

ChileSorry, I just couldn’t resist.  It is very cold and rainy here. 

I am so unbelievable unproductive – it is almost painful. 

For better or worse, it all has to be finished in the next 24 hours. 

Wish me luck – keep me in your prayers – send me emails – don’t expect me to respond – and try to stay warm and dry!

But don’t feel bad for me – this is all my fault and I’m ready to take full responsibility and accept the consequences of my poor preparation.

Is today Wednesday?

I get really confused during finals about what day it is.  I’m in the student learning center – the SLC – pronounced – SLiCk.  I have a big study room on the 4th floor – with three windows looking out on Sanford Drive.  I can see the football stadium – a big crane that is doing work, journalism, buses, people, etc.  And through the glass wall that separates me from the rest of the SLC – I can see undergrads on the internet and the people at the help desk. 

I have my stuff spread out all over the place – because Christy isn’t here yet and I don’t want to get kicked out. 

Y’all – seriously – last night – it was awful.  My internet went out.  AND my cable went out.  I mean, it isn’t like anyone ever answers the phone these days anyway – so I was very cut off from the rest of the world.  It was very sad.  And ya know what else?  I don’t have time to call Charter and let them have it this week.  I have a lot of other stuff going on – and calling charter is not on my list of priorities.  But I did get a ridiculous bill from them.  I think I am going to have to cut my subscription down considerably – because I just can’t afford the cost.  highway robbery. 

In other news – in just a few short minutes I am going to begin to be productive – I’m going to start printing off stuff for my health care take home.  It is going to be a blast. 

I still have the black lung – and it is still unreasonably cold outside – but I’m on some medicine that will hopefully make me feel better – I have some mini tootsie pops – (gah – I just remembered a weird dream I had about tootsie pops last night – tootsie pops and a big huge boat and some ice bergs) and the sun is shining on my room and warming it up – and overall I think this could be a great day.  Yay for happy days!! (well, happy might be strong). 

Yay for feeling productive and not stupid and being one step closer to putting this semester out of it’s misery and mine!

Blue Books

Ummm – this is a strange request – but does anyone who is at the library have any blue books I can have – or know where I can get them on north campus?  I really don’t want to to have to walk down to the tate center – but I need bluebooks for my corporations exam tomorrow.  I’ll buy them from you if you happen to have an excess of them. 

Alternatively – if anyone is planning on going to the bookstore today to pick up bluebooks for the exam in the morning – or has extra ones at home – and has an exam at 9 in the morning – or will be here in the morning – will you bring some for me or buy some for me when you go to the store?


I can go buy some myself tonight I guess – but I wanted to stay here and study as late as I can stand it – and I don’t know what time the bookstores close. 

Any ideas?

Sunday Thinking

Since I’m incapable of studying for my finals, and because I don’t want to take a shower like I need to – I thought I would unload some of my thoughts on you. 

Yesterday I went to one of the most fun football games I have ever attended.  And I want you to all appreciate this statement, because I have been to more football games than the average avid sports fan.  Don’t argue with me, I’ve been to at least as many games as you have – the only way you have been to more than me is if you are much older than me.  Yeah, yesterday when the Bulldawgs stomped all over LSU, I was there, and I was having a blast.  Before the game I thought that going to the game was probably a very bad idea seeing as how I have a great deal of school work due this week – but after the game I realized that it was all totally worth it. 

Speaking of all the football games I have been to – I realized yesterday while at the Georgia Dome that I am completely comfortable in a football stadium – actually most any sports complex – and when I say comfortable – I mean completely and totally at home and calm.  I have a hard time recognizing that there is a world outside when I am in a stadium.  It is kind of like how I feel safe when I am in the law library during finals – because I know that the library is where I am suppose to be and it is nice to know you are where you are suppose to be, even if it is just for a little while. 

I hope that this time next year I am somewhere that I am suppose to be.  At some point I need to decide what I am going to do after I take the bar.  Right now I am definitely not going to practice law – but I am in the middle of finals so I recognize that I might not have the best perspective.  Regardless – I have a hard time imagining myself ever truly enjoying practicing law.

Law school has been a tremendous experience for me – I have made wonderful friends and I have been overall very happy with the past few years.  I think at this point I might do it over again if I had to.  All of last year I would have sworn that I would rather flip burgers at mcdonalds for the rest of my life rather than repeat first year of law school, but I think as time moves on I have a hard time remembering how terrible it was, and as such, might consider doing it again, to get where I am today. 

I watched a documentary on Leonardo Da Vinci tonight, just the first half because I had to watch grey’s anatomy – but they talked about how Leonardo had a very difficult time finishing projects.  That as soon as he could reason through the idea of something, in his mind, he was finished.  They said he probably had ADD or something – but his inability to finish projects kept him from being reliable to clients and hurt his business.  They said he never finished the Mona Lisa – and worked on it for years – and the only reason it looks the way it does now is because he died.  I think Leonardo and I would have been friends.  I have a very hard time finishing things.  I think it would have taken me an extended period of time to graduate from college if I hadn’t been forced to graduate in time to go to law school.  Even so I didn’t graduate from college until three days after law school started. 

So I guess it is understandable that I am having such senioritis right now – I have been in school for the last 21 years of my life.  And I’m only 25.  And this is the end of it.  The one and only thing I do know about my future is that I will NEVER go back to school.  I have no desire to ever be in school ever again.  If I hadn’t gone to law school I think I would always have considered going back to school.  So I guess that is one thing I can cross off my list of things to do with my life. 

Basically I am going to have a really hard time with the next 8 months – I’m going to have a hard time finishing up my mere 9 hours of credit I have left – and then I’m going to have a very hard time when I have to take the bar.  I can’t justify not taking the bar, even if I don’t want to practice.  If I’ve been here for three years, what is three more months, regardless of how terrible they are?

Okay, that is enough ranting about my future – here are some other thoughts I’ve had recently:

–  I have no concept of how long it takes to get everywhere in the ATL.  I always end up being at least a half an hour late everywhere I am suppose to be when I’m in the ATL. 

–  I went to Toys R Us yesterday to look for something for a baby shower.  I have never in my entire life been so disappointed by any store in my life.  Most of the toys frightened me, and beyond the board games, everything just seemed so cheap and gaudy.  I saw no fewer than five different toys – from stuffed animals to barbies which had the phrase "bling bling" on them.  Seriously.  I thought I could at least get a soft cuddly stuffed animals – but I was sadly mistaken.  There were no regular stuffed animals, they all made noise or lit up or shook or sang or talked.  I might could have handled that.  But they were all made out of what felt like to me the cheapest material I have ever felt in my entire life. 

–  I didn’t realized how important this whole no smoking in the bars thing is.  Since you can’t smoke in the bars in Athens anymore – I’ve gotten used to not being exposed to a lot of second hand smoke.  I went out friday and saturday night in the ATL and I woke up this morning with the black lung.  Seriously.  I haven’t been able to talk all day.  I did kind of have a cold previously – and I did yell a lot at the game – but there is definitely a correlation between my condition and the second hand smoke I inhaled this weekend.  It really kind of scares me. 

–  I’m kind of lonely here in athens.  My apartment is lonely.  My friends are starting to scatter to a certain degree.  Obviously I require more human interaction than most people, but that doesn’t change how I feel.  Maybe I’m already having separation anxiety for the town in general.  Maybe I just need a dog. 

–  My car needs a bath.  And I do too. 

Good night my darlings.  Kisses.

Have y’all heard about the pack of squirrels in Russia that killed and ate the big stray dog?


Be very afraid.  Seriously, there are a lot of squirrels on north campus, around the law school.  I’m sure there are enough of them that they could attack me.  But, I will say, there appear to be a lot of acorns and such, so I’ll probably be okay. 

Who knew that if the squirrels didn’t have enough pine cones they would eat a dog instead?

Did you even know that squirrels ran in packs?  I find this quite upsetting, as I have been bitten by a squirrel before.  Although, that was probably my own fault, since I did pick it up (I thought it was dead).  The real question is what the hell was I doing picking up a dead squirrel (my dog was chewing on it)?  I think I was around 12 at the time.  Regardless, it wasn’t dead when I picked it up, but it was dead once I slung it off my finger onto the asphalt.  Yep, that is right, I killed it. 

All I can tell you is that it was the LAST wild animal I ever picked up – dead or alive (excluding of course cooked game I guess). 

Jennifer said it could be worse – the headline could say – "Flock of Seagulls Attacks Female Law Student."
