Happy Friday the 13th!

I woke up this morning quite early – around 8:30 – and delighted in snuggling back down beneath my covers for a few more glorious minutes of slumber. 

Of course I didn’t mean to black out until 11:15. 


Okay, I’m about to seriously attack my apartment in a cleaning frenzy the likes of which you have never seen. 

Right after I eat a toaster strudel.

Back in the Classic City

I got back to Athens yesterday in time to go to Advanced Evidence – which I think is going to be an awesome class. I’m probably going to fail it of course – since it is me and the mock trial team, but whatev.   I didn’t make it to legal profession or law and the legislation – but I did go run and unloaded my car and started cleaning my apartment (I washed a couple loads of laundry too!).  I was planning on getting it all clean today – but I’m running a little behind.  Mostly because I’m a crazy person. 

My schedule really is awesome right now, I’m only taking 9 hours and they all fall into nice time slots.  But for some reason I have this uncontrollable problem at the beginning of every semester where I really want to completely change my schedule.  Which is really not that great of an idea, especially not this semester.  Mostly because half the classes I’m taking are things I MUST take, and the rest of the classes are awesome and give me a great schedule.  Screwing around with it will just end up giving me a less awesome schedule.  But even equipped with this knowledge I still spent all day trying to get into classes that would end up giving me a headache and which aren’t available to me for a reason.

I just took a break from writing this post to talk to Jennifer on the phone and I’m feeling a lot better.  She reminded me that we are being positive in 2006, and that tomorrow is another day, and that I’m not lazy, but that I need to get a hobby this semester or I’ll be sad.  So now I feel better. 

The real dilemma that we worked out is that on Monday and Thursday I only have class from 10-12, on Tuesday 10-2, and no class on Wednesday and Friday except for a minicourse on Wednesdays for six weeks in the middle of the semester.  So, as Jennifer said – that is a lot of no class.  And I’m so much happier when I’m productive. 

Any ideas with what I should do with my semester?  I need structure.  I really want to get a dog.  Dogs are expensive.  But I would really love one.  My mom said that if I get a dog I need to get a dog that doesn’t shed.  I kind of agree. 

In other news, I truly am happy to be back in Athens, in my own space, with all my stuff, and my cute frat neighbors who are playing basketball outside and all the dogs in our neighborhood, and all my sweet law school friends.  I had a fantastic break in Augusta, and I didn’t want to leave, but it feels kind of good to get back into a routine.  I can’t even talk about how this is my last semester. 

My thoughts about what I’m going to do with my life would take a whole other post – but I can say this – my decision to come to law school was a faith based decision, and even time I’ve wondered why I’m hear it has always been an enormous relief to think back and remember that God wanted me to go to law school – and even though I don’t know what he wants me to do this time next year – he knows.  So there is no need for panic.  In the same way that you aren’t being patient if it isn’t something you are longing for, it can’t be faith without some uncertainty and doubt. 

Also – today is my sweet friend Molly’s birthday!  Happy Birthday Molly! Yay!

I promise to be better about updating – now that I’m back in the swing of things!

Hey Y’all!  I’m still in augusta – I have a dentist appointment on monday morning – so I’m going to be here until then – after which I’ll be heading back to athens!  Yay Classic City!  I haven’t been back to athens since I left almost an entire month ago. 

There are actually a lot of people in augusta right now – which is nice.  I went to lunch with Paige today – and we had a good catch up.  Hopefully we will have even more fun tonight when she gets off work and can come play outside in the bars. 

I have been playing with my parents tivo and running errands and watching netflix movies and eating my mom’s food and playing with my dogs.  It has been nice. Bella is a bad dog.  So it Bo.  Bad dogs.   I don’t want to go back to school.  But I am looking forward to getting back into a routine and acting like a normal person – i.e. not staying up until 4 in the morning playing quarters.  Law School Betsy and I were discussing the other day that a month long christmas break does not afford us enough structure – we become alcoholic space cadets if we aren’t careful. 

Our house is C-O-L-D!  I liked the 70 degree weather we were enjoying earlier in the week better than the cold – even though 70 degree weather in january is kind of creepy. 

OH! And I want to spread the word – I am now a verizon customer – so if you are on verizon leave me a comment so I can know that we are IN!  I’m really excited about my new cell phone and my new carrier – I just have to watch my text messaging and my out of network daytime chatting. 

Y’all should be really proud of me – I got my oil changed today – and I’m getting my teeth cleaned on monday – and I mailed my rent check in – I got my health insurance worked out – I mean – I’m acting almost like a fully functional adult. 

Now I just need to get a new drivers license.  I’m still such a child.
