Go Dawgs!

I’ll be at the basketball game tonight at Stegman Coliseum  with Jill Bateman.  I’m pretty pumped – I haven’t been to a game all year and this one should be a big one!  I know we haven’t had the best lately – but I have faith in our team.  Plus – Kentucky isn’t at it’s finest either.  We even have a better record than they do. 

Georgia v. Kentucky –  9 pm ESPN

So, apparently my advanced evidence teacher didn’t get the memo that pop quizzes are completely against the law and categorically unfair in law school.  Especially 3rd year.  There are only 3rd years in my class. 








I totally failed it.  And I’m kind of upset. 

OMG!  What is the problem!  I used to be a professional at failing pop quizzes.  No sweat.  Seriously, failing pop quizzes used to be one of my specialties.  I guess today was just the first pop quiz I’ve failed in three or four years.  Maybe I’m losing my touch. 

In other news – the Snickers conspiracy continues. Not only are there no snickers in the vending machines anymore – now there are no snickers in the bookstore candy shop. 

I have complained to Dean Kurtz and the employees at the bookstore candy shop.  The candy shop people I politely asked  them to order more – to which they thanked me for pointing out the need.  Dean Kurtz said that he would look into it and agreed whole heartedly with me that it was a dire situation to which he would devote his whole attention. 

Also – not to be a nerd – but what is the problem with Star 94.1 these days – I used to get good reception in my car but lately I’m just not able to hear the music like I once was – and I kind of miss it. 

Lastly – Christy and I decided yesterday that we would rent a movie and order a pizza.  So Christy picked us up a pizza from little italy and then we both went to Video Warehouse.  But instead of renting a movie like we should have – we decided to rent the first season of 24.  Yep – so instead of committing to a three hour movie – we committed to 24 hours of intense, stress-filled television.  We made it through seven hours yesterday – and I’ve watched three more hours this afternoon by myself.

Since I don’t have class on Friday, and we didn’t have school today – I have been enjoying a ridiculously long weekend.  And I’m too lazy to go into detail about it all – so I’m going to make y’all a list. 

1.  Talked to my awesome friend David Moore on the phone.
2.  Bought new running shoes from the knowledgeable and helpful people at Bulldog Sporting Goods – after much deliberation I ended up with the New Balance 1221. 
3.  Ran three miles in new running shoes with Cristina on trails.  We talked about boys I think. 
4.  Went to dinner at East West to celebrate Bitsy’s engagement to Jon.  I had a fantastic cheeseburger – Shannon ordered us great wine – and my french fries were to die for.  Staci helped me clean my plate.
5.  Played CatchPhrase as a drinking game at Bitsy, Dean and Taylor’s house.
6.  Wandered around downtown – finally settled on Cutters for a few drinks.

1.  Slept in. 
2.  Retrived car from parking deck.
3.  Dropped new cell phone in puddle. 
4.  Saved new cell phone for destruction by speeding SUV by sacrificing own life. 
5.  Dried off new cell phone with my clothing and hair.  New cell phone is still alive.
6.  Bought new books at Borders with christmas gift card from Brother. 
7.  Visited the nice people at the Clarke County DMV and received new drivers licence to replace lost drivers license. 
8.  Layed around and watched television. 
9.  Went to super fun rager at Ally’s apartment with other awesome law school people I don’t hang out with enough where we played Kings and drank wine and beer and laughed our heads off. 
10.  Made appearance at 283 Bar before catching a ride home with Lindsey.

coming soon.

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.
