So law school prom was last night.  Since I was in Valdosta friday night and I didn’t know what time I was going to get back into to town on Saturday night – I didn’t have a date.  Which was probably good considering what a moron I am. 

I lost my pocketbook.  The whole thing.  Cell phone, drivers license, house key, car key, debit card, and precious pocketbook that I loved so much.  Faris was nice enough to let me crash on her couch and let me use her phone and her car, and I finally got back into my house this afternoon.  Luckily Katie had a key to my house.  She also made me feel better because she lost her phone last night too. 

I hate being so irresponsible.  I hate it.  It makes me crazy.  I need to take a shower.  My hair is dirty and I walked around downtown barefoot last night.  I don’t last very long in four inch heels.  I’m sore.  My hands and feet are cramping for some unexplained reason.  Feet cramps are awful.  I’m a wreck of an individual. 

My pocketbook has to be somewhere.  I was hoping I left it at east west but I have called and gone by there already.  I guess it might be at the arch bar, but it will be closed until tomorrow so there isn’t much I can do about it till then.  But no one has used my debit card, and my phone is still ringing and no one stole my car out of the deck.  So – apparently no one has exploited my loss yet.  I bet some 19 year old found my pocketbook and is more excited about my drivers license than anything else.  She can have it.  I really want the actual pocketbook and my car key more than anything.  It also sucks to have lost all my phone numbers.  OH WAIT!  I STILL HAVE MY OLD PHONE! VERIZON CAN TAKE MY NUMBERS OFF MY OLD PHONE AGAIN! YES!  SILVER LINING!

Oh yeah – did I tell you how much fun I had last night?  So so so so so so so so so so much fun.  I love everyone.  I sure hope everyone loves me as much as I love them.  Actually – it doesn’t even matter. 

I wish someone would take a shower for me.  Have I ever told you that I have a tendency to pull my eye brows out when I get stressed?  I’m trying to stop.  Especially since I only do it to one eye brow.  I have problems. 

Don’t tell the responsibility police where I am.

I’m in Valdosta with my family for a family reunion.  I tried to get my aunt and uncle to take me to the lake with them after dinner and they said it was okay – then they left me.  So I’m stuck in the courtyard marriott with Mama, Daddy, and Travers – and we are all in one room, with one king bed, a pull out love seat, and a roll away.  Travers and I are both ticked because we would have never come to this last minute family reunion if we had known there was nowhere to stay. 

Travers:  "I feel like I’m in hell.  A small hotel room, with too many people, too much humidity, not enough air conditioning and nothing on tv.   The only thing worse would be if we had a tornado and we all had to get into the bathroom with the mattresses." 

Kate:  "No, the only thing worse would be if we had a real natural disaster and had to stay here for two weeks with no water." 

Travers: " I would be dancing on the ceiling."

Ecclesiastes 2

I don’t know what to think about this bible passage.  I can’t stop thinking about it – it seems very much to mirror modern day america.  Tell me what y’all think.  For background – this is King Solomon writing.

Ecclesiastes 2
translation – the message

1I said to myself, "Let’s go for it–experiment with pleasure, have a good time!" But there was nothing to it, nothing but smoke.

2What do I think of the fun-filled life? Insane! Inane!    My verdict on the pursuit of happiness? Who needs it?

      3With the help of a bottle of wine  and all the wisdom I could muster,    I tried my level best

    to penetrate the absurdity of life.   I wanted to get a handle on anything useful we mortals might do  during the years we spend on this earth.

I Never Said No to Myself

4Oh, I did great things:

    built houses,   planted vineyards,    5designed gardens and parks and planted a variety of fruit trees in them,   6made pools of water  to irrigate the groves of trees.

      7I bought slaves, male and female, who had children, giving me even more slaves; then I acquired large herds and flocks,  larger than any before me in Jerusalem.

      8I piled up silver and gold,  loot from kings and kingdoms.   I gathered a chorus of singers to entertain me with song,  and–most exquisite of all pleasures– voluptuous maidens for my bed.

how I prospered! I left all my predecessors in Jerusalem far behind,
left them behind in the dust. What’s more, I kept a clear head through
it all. 10Everything I
wanted I took–I never said no to myself. I gave in to every impulse,
held back nothing. I sucked the marrow of pleasure out of every
task–my reward to myself for a hard day’s work!

I Hate Life

I took a good look at everything I’d done, looked at all the sweat and
hard work. But when I looked, I saw nothing but smoke. Smoke and
spitting into the wind. There was nothing to any of it. Nothing.

then I took a hard look at what’s smart and what’s stupid. What’s left
to do after you’ve been king? That’s a hard act to follow. You just do
what you can, and that’s it. 13But I did see that it’s better to be smart than stupid, just as light is better than darkness.    14Even
so, though the smart ones see where they’re going and the stupid ones
grope in the dark, they’re all the same in the end. One fate for
all–and that’s it.

      15When I realized that my fate’s the same as the fool’s, I had to ask myself, "So why bother being wise?"

   It’s all smoke, nothing but smoke.    16The
smart and the stupid both disappear out of sight. In a day or two
they’re both forgotten. Yes, both the smart and the stupid die, and
that’s it.

      17I hate life. As far as I can see, what happens on earth is a bad business. It’s smoke–and spitting into the wind.

I hated everything I’d accomplished and accumulated on this earth. I
can’t take it with me–no, I have to leave it to whoever comes after
me. 19Whether they’re
worthy or worthless–and who’s to tell?-they’ll take over the earthly
results of my intense thinking and hard work. Smoke.

      20That’s when I called it quits, gave up on anything that could be hoped for on this earth.    21What’s
the point of working your fingers to the bone if you hand over what you
worked for to someone who never lifted a finger for it? Smoke, that’s
what it is. A bad business from start to finish. 22So what do you get from a life of hard labor?    23Pain and grief from dawn to dusk. Never a decent night’s rest. Nothing but smoke.

best you can do with your life is have a good time and get by the best
you can. The way I see it, that’s it–divine fate. 25Whether we feast or fast, it’s up to God.    26God
may give wisdom and knowledge and joy to his favorites, but sinners are
assigned a life of hard labor, and end up turning their wages over to
God’s favorites. Nothing but smoke–and spitting into the wind.

Happy Thoughts

I am in an awesome mood.  I’m not sure why. 

But I can give a few reasons that might be contributing to the happy feeling. 

1.  I had bible study tonight.  I always feel better about life after bible study.  I love the people, I love the conversation, and I love discussing the bible. 

2.  I went over to Jessica and Gina’s house for a wine and cheese party to celebrate Lil’ Jessie’s birthday.  Molly and Gina did a rap video, Faris and I got to hang out (she complained that I don’t update this beotch enough), and it was an all around fabulous night of good friends and ridiculous.  I didn’t really drink.  I’m still trying to dry out from last week. 

3.  I finally have a roommate.  I don’t see her too much – she leaves very early in the morning and sometimes doesn’t get back till late – but we get along very well and it is great to come home and have someone to chat with for twenty minutes before you go to sleep.  It is comforting just to know there is someone else here.  I am not cut out for solitary habitation. 

4.  I had the pleasure of consuming a Globe hamburger after bible study.  I basically browbeat everyone into going to the globe – and it was awesome.  They have the bestest hamburgers ever. 

5.  I’m starting to realize that even though sometimes I go through anti social spells where all I really want to do it sit around by myself or run by myself or go to movies by myself – I am much, much happier when I am busy and around people and consumed with life instead of being consumed with my own personal immediate whim.  I need obligations. 

6.  I have two more hours of class before it is the weekend again!  YAY!

7.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love Thursdays?

Seven seems like a lucky number . Yawn.  Faris – this one is for you.

We had a blast in Utah.  I got to ski my little heart and knees out.

I posted the pictures in an album that you can look at on the sidebar.

We had a fabulous group – Jessica, Jamie, Jay, Lauren, Ben, John Paul, Cristina and me.

I don’t really know what to do with myself now.  I had a presentation yesterday – which was stressful Monday night when I first got home.

But now that I am finished with that, I am kind of blah.  I have class at 4:30 today.  And then I have class in the morning.  And then no more school till monday.

Law Prom is this weekend!  And the Masters is in two weeks!   Yay!

Undecided State of mind

As far as school is concerned – my spring break starts today.  But – since I have an interview this afternoon, I have to take the MPRE on Saturday, and I have to get an outline done for my writing requirement paper before I leave – my spring break won’t actually start for a few more days. 

But I’m having a hard time concentrating.  Jessica sent the information for the house in Deer Valley – and I can’t even talk about how excited I am.  SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO EXCITED!!  Can’t breathe excited.  As I always get right before I go skiing.  Also – I’m going out in augusta tonight for Mary Beth’s – my favorite pick cupcake – birthday, which is tomorrow!  I’m going to drink sake!  I love sake!

But I have to study tomorrow so I’m not going to drink too much sake. 

So, I need to work on concentration and stop daydreaming about next week.  RIIIGGGHHTTT.

In other news – I saw Brokeback Mountain last night.  Seriously – most definitely the most depressing movie I’ve EVER seen.  I wanted to kill myself most of the movie.  Maybe that is a little extreme, but I can say that it made me very sad and everyone’s life seemed very bleak.  It was enough to turn anyone into an alcoholic.  I would have to be sent off to betty ford.  The natural beauty of Wyoming was amazing – but there is something so stark about the lifestyle, I don’t know.  It made me very sad, all over – in my bones and my brain and my heart.  Just sad sad sad. 

I had to sit on the floor in legal profession this morning.  I came in thirty second late and was just trying to disappear – which was made quite easy by the fact that there was no chair where my chair was suppose to be.  So I sat on the floor.  Doesn’t that suck?  I would like to kick in the shins whoever keeps stealing the chairs in legal profession.  DRIVES ME NUTS.  The chair is always there when I get there on time.  WTF?  What ev, I got to sign the attendance sheet – and I didn’t have to worry about getting called on because C. Ron couldn’t see me.  Sweet. 

I feel like there was something else I was going to tell y’all – but I can’t remember what it was. 

Bible study was awesome last night – I think this is going to be a productive Lenten season.  Yay God!

Things I don’t understand

How sometimes I can be so damn sensitive and have my feeling hurt so easily and how other times I am able to not take thing personally by recognizing the fact that most people are way more concerned with themselves than they are with me. 

My tendency to talk to myself.  Seriously – this probably needs to stop.  I don’t know why I do it – and most of the time I don’t even realized I’m doing it.  I also have a tendency to sing along to my ipod while I’m running and am often embarrassed when I come upon someone on the trail who catches me singing.  I don’t feel like I can claim to be a normal human being with the habit of talking to myself.  But maybe everyone does it?

I am very confused by the smoothie I drank this morning.  The ingredients listed were appl e juice, fresh bananas, fresh strawberries, red delicious apples, and fresh squeezed  orange juice.  But it also says that each 8 ounce serving has 0.5 grams of fat.  Where does the fat come from?  Is there fat in bananas?  No way.

I twisted my ankle quite badly on Sunday.  It is very sad – but I think I will survive.  I don’t mind being sick  – I’m a hypochondriac as it is – but I HATE being injured.  HATE HATE HATE being injured.  Which I guess is pretty rich considering my track record of injuries.  Growing up I went at everything 900 miles an hour and this led to accidents and unfortunate bodily injury.  Maybe this is why I hate being injured so much. 

I’ve been eating a bowl of pasta I bought at Eatzie’s since Friday night.  I finally succeeded in finishing it all off.  Yay me. 

Have I ever told you how much I love NCIS?  Seriously –  love it.
