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?

I’m in the Annex

I can’t decide whether I should study in the annex tomorrow, or the student learning center. 

I also can’t decide whether or not I should go to the grocery store tonight. 

If I did go to the grocery store, what would I buy?

If I don’t go to the grocery store, what will I eat?

I’m anticipating waking up in the middle of the night and being frightened by the thunderstorms.  I love thunderstorms, but I prefer having someone to watch them with in the middle of the afternoon with a bottle of wine and deep thoughts about life and a dog who is afraid. 

I don’t like large hail and strong winds in the middle of the night. 

I can’t decide if I think it is a good idea for me to try to push through some more work tonight, since I didn’t get much done today, or if I should just go home. 

I keep forgetting that I have to go to the DMV tomorrow and get my fingers printed, all of which are a huge pain.  I keep thinking all I have to do is get up and make it back here to the library at a decent time. 

I forgot about bible study tonight because I get really confused during finals and I seem to be under the impression that the world stops turning and everything else stops for me to study. 

I can’t decide whether to put my books back in my locker, or just take them with me to the car.  Either way it seems like a hassle. 

I can’t remember where I parked my car. 

I feel like I deserve a treat before I go to sleep, but I can’t think of anything that I actually want. 

The back of my car looks like a bomb exploded in it. 

I guess my room probably looks the same way.  Maybe I should just blow up my apartment and start over.  Nah. 

But I am in a rather chipper mood despite the fact that I lack decision making skills and have short term memory loss. 

I wonder what I can watch on tv when I get home.  Maybe I’ll read one of my new books. 

Decisions, decisions.

Exam Time

The nervous breakdowns, anxiety dreams, and irritability have begun. 

I apologize to anyone who has come in contact with me in the past week or who has to come in contact with me in the next two weeks. 

I promise that it isn’t you, it is me. 

Other than that, I had a spectacular Thanksgiving and I have so many things to be thankful for, I’ll probably make a list for y’all later. 

But, for now, I’m studying Real Estate Transactions and dwelling on the fact that the DMV is closed today and I therefore I have to wait until Tuesday to finish my bar application.  Things I should have done in the past month – but didn’t – and now regret. 

I’m still in Augusta, I’m not sure when I’m heading back, I guess it depends on how much I can get done here.  Hyperventilation in full effect.

Getting a grip on life

I apologize for not having anything interesting to say today, I have a bunch of work I need to do – I know that sounds ludicrous, but I promise that it is true. 

So, if I can get most of my work done, maybe I’ll have something interesting to say. 

Actually – I’ll make y’all a little list. 

–  There is a conspiracy at this school involving the vending machines and snickers and peanut m&ms.  Come find me, I’ll tell you about it, I’m pretty bitter. 

–  It is seriously cold.  Christy and I were complaining about the cold yesterday and Kipp said that we southerners have no concept of cold.  But – there is a reason Kipp now lives in Georgia and not in Iowa where he was born – so I don’t really want to hear about how we are being ridiculous. 

–  I have recently purchased ear plugs for blocking out noise in the library.  I can’t believe I never had these before.  It is really weird – I can almost hear the noise around me, but not really, it is more like a buzz, but I can hear my heart beating.  Interesting.  The only problem is I kind of have a hard time getting them into my ears.  I’m learning. 

–  There are a couple things I am rather particular about.  One of which is the kind of rubber bands I put into my hair, and another is the kind of writing utensil I  use.  And both my preferred hair rubber band and my preferred writing utensil are, naturally, difficult to find.  Which irritates me to no end.  I think the rubber band people might have discontinued my preferred hair rubber band.  This is the sort of thing that Libby tells me I’m not allowed to discuss on first dates.  That, and my deep philosophical reasoning behind where I should live.

–  The 1Ls at the table behind me keep talking about black acre and O and A and B and C.  Which is making me tired.  But somehow, making me feel a tad bit better about my life.

Fitness and Character

It is a little presumptuous to assume I am going to pass this semester and even be allowed to take the bar – but I have questions like this:

Have you ever been detained, arrested, formally accused, cited or prosecuted for the violation of any law? 

note: excluding traffic offenses disclosed in response to question 19,
you must disclose each instance even though the charges may have been
dismissed or you were acquitted or adjudication was withheld or a
conviction was reversed, set aside or vacated or the record sealed or
expunged and regardless of whether you have been told you need not
disclose any such instance.


Gah.  What a hassle.

Wow, Well, You Look Great!

Betsy was in town the other day, recruiting for Homebanc on campus, and she bought a football ticket from an undergrad girl she met at the recruiting meeting. 

The girl didn’t have the ticket with her, so I went with Betsy to get the ticket from the girl’s apartment.  It took us a while to find the apartment, but, after walking into the wrong apartment once and knocking another  wrong door, we finally found it. 

Betsy introduced me, and the conversation went something like this:

Betsy:  Girl, this is my friend Charlsie, she is in law school!
Girl:  Oh, that is great!  What year are you?
Me:  I’m a 3rd year.
Girl:  WOW!  And, well, gosh,  you look GREAT!  (this was said with pure enthusiasm and sincerity). 
Me:  Umm…thanks?   (while smiling and thinking, imagine what I would look like after a shower). 

I mean, WTF?  I look great?  What is that suppose to mean?  What am I suppose to look like?  And Betsy and I discussed it later, and she really was being sincere, and honestly, I did not look Great.  I looked like I have been at school all day, I had my hair in a knot on the top of my head, and I was shivering in my pink hoodie, and I didn’t have any makeup on.  I don’t think I would have gotten such a response if I said I was a 1L, which goes to show how confused she is, because, 1Ls are the ones that haven’t slept in weeks. 

It was almost like if I had told her I had a terminal illness, I would have gotten a similar response, Wow, well, I never would have known!  You look great!

Do you think she thought I should look older?  I’m sure that was what it was, I’m just so fresh and I look so healthy, who knew I spent all my time under a rock?  Do you think being a 3L is like having a terminal illness?

Good Morning Children!

I think I am sick.   (p.s. – Mama and Daddy, if are reading this, I’m just kidding, poetic license, I’m actually doing lots of school work and I’m very much on top of my life). 


1.  Inability to get out of bed in the morning. 

2.  Trouble concentrating. 

3.  Heightened stress levels, resulting in tense jaw.

4.  Lack of motivation, in everything, from working out, to reading novels, to brushing my hair, to doing actual real work for school.

5.  Lack of reality resulting in inefficiency and habitual inability to be punctual, anywhere. 

6.  Extreme need for homemade chocolate chip cookies and gourmet coffee. 

7.  Inability to make any sort of decision about the rest of my life, or, the rest of my day, resulting in me not having a job and also not eating lunch at a regular time. 

8.  Carpel Tunnel, from IMing I think, not from furiously taking notes. 

9.  Obsession with television, including, but not limited to, Gray’s Anatomy, Laguna Beach, NCIS, House, Boston Legal, Lost, CSI (the original one, although I like Miami a lot too), and Law and Order (OMG, that is like, as many hours as I spend in class, GAH, I’ve got to get a handle on my obsessions, they are controlling my life!). 

10.  On top of this, I’ve got a bit of a cold, or maybe it is allergies, but I don’t have time this week to be a hypochondriac, so I’m going to pretend that it is allergies and I’m not actually sick.  Even though this gives me an excuse to not run outside, when it might actually make me feel better. 

Other than my symptoms, I’m feeling pretty good about life.  The weather is starting to make me a little nervous, I don’t know, I think it is kind of creepy that I can wear a tube dress to the auburn game this weekend.  Not that I don’t enjoy the weather, because I do, I just find it kind of weird and creepy.

I really have a hard time getting out of bed.  It was all I could do get out of bed this morning, but once I was up, I was in a fabulous mood and feeling great about everything.  I don’t know if this is a product of one of my closest friends – Coffee, or the weather. 

I think is is something even more though, because I have been in a funk for the past couple of days, and I am feeling so much better today.  I think I have been dreading all the work I have to do in the next month, and have been hiding from it, when if I just spent a couple of days getting some work done then I would feel so much better about it. 

Today I think I am going to get my act together with regards to the fitness part of the bar exam.  Finger prints, credit report, blah blah, I’m surprised they don’t want a blood sample, a piece of my hair, and a retina scan.  My dad didn’t want to listen to my whining, he said if it was really as difficult as I’m making it out to be there wouldn’t be as many lawyers as there are.  He doesn’t think my complacency is very cute, when I told him the other day about how much my bar review course was going to cost, he asked me if I thought I might want to get a job between now and when I take the bar.  Details, Details. 

I’m more concerned about the Auburn game.  I missed the Arkansas game when I went to Bonnie’s wedding, and it was totally worth it, even if it was the first home game I’d missed in ten years.  But, now, I feel like I haven’t been to a home game in FOREVER!  and I’m really excited.  I hate auburn. 

So, this morning I had to fill out an advanced directive – which is a power of attorney and a living will – for a class, our teacher is going to throw them away – but, it is a weird thing to think about.  Feeding tubes, ventilators, morphine….Gonzales v. Oregon….death with dignity.

I should know more about all this Supreme Court stuff, but politics makes me tired and everyone has a hidden agenda and no one is going to be able to truly tell me what the hell is actually going on. 

Hah, Dean Beaird called Ann Coulter a harlot yesterday in class because of her comments indicating that Harriet Miers wasn’t qualified for the Supreme Court because Miers went to SMU for law school.  Dean Beaird is very offended that Coulter was suggesting that only Ivy League law school graduates were qualified for the Supreme Court.  I love him, he is hilarious.
