Studies [Apr. 28th, 2008|12:37 pm]
[mood |chipperchipper]

 It's so weird to not have any classes today.  But it's been nice.  I straightened my hair this morning (more about that later) and then went to get my headlight replaced.  but they had the wrong part.  Apparently my car was in an accident before that I never knew about when I bought it.  They didn't give us a carfax report, and the car didn't really have any visible signs of an accident--no wavy panels anywhere and no chipped paint, just a few scratches on the right headlight.  Now, it turns out they have to fix the bracket in the bumper when the replace the headlight...he said they'll bolt it, and it doesn't sound like I'll have to pay, on the bright side.

Back to my hair. I got it cut yesterday.  I still have the sweep bangs, but she completely screwed up the rest.  I like long layers, but she cut a lot of layers that are too short for my taste. Plus, she did that thing I hate down here where the front is shorter than the back.  It looks better straight than curly, so it looks like I'm going to be straightening my hair everyday until it grows out some....which is a pain. Oh well.

Today, I'm going to finish my Florida con law outline and start studying for that final, which is on the first. Then, I have a criminal law final on the third.  My admin law final is on the 9th, and my trusts & estates final is on the 12th, so I have next week to study for those......

.....and now, I must go make my lunch.

Refreshing.... [Apr. 24th, 2008|10:53 am]
[Current Location |library]
[mood |rejuvenatedrejuvenated]

 Given Becky's recent entries, I decided to follow suit and spend some time in the sun in the hopes of relaxation (and a nice tan wouldn't hurt, either). It worked better than expected!

Even though I live in Miami, FL, where it's sunny most of the time, I don't get to be out in the sun. I'm either inside at class or inside doing work or, lately, inside on job interviews.  Tuesday, when I got home from class, I decided to grab my trusts and estates book and do my final reading assignment of the semester while laying out by the pool.  I donned by tankini and first took a dip in the pool (which was FREEZING, at least to me) and then laid out in the sun and warmth.  There was a gentle breeze and the temp was just about 80...it was perfect.  I read the assignment faster than normal and just listened to music and soaked up the warmth.  It was exactly what I needed to feel re-energized.

Today, I finished my last class of my law school career at 9:15 am. I have to hang around until 12:30 to donate to the Class of 2008 Gift, so I decided to outline. I stayed outside outlining, in the sun, until my laptop battery almost died.  Now, I'm in the library, but somehow, I just don't seem to care. I'm so energized from the sun that I am completely re-focused.  I need to do this at least once a week.  

Let's see....I think that's about it.

Where to begin.... [Apr. 1st, 2008|09:35 am]
I don't even know where to start.  I'm 47 days from graduation and soo stressed.  I'm in class, so I think one of my famous bullet point lists will do me well:

*CLASSES*  They're going well....only 3 more full weeks after this one.  Then, it's time for 4 finals. Finally, May 18th is graduation! I can't wait to be finished...I'm getting so burned out lately.  There's just never enough time for anything.

*VEGAS* I can't wait!  We're staying at Harrah's, and it's going to be a fantastic time....especially since we're going right after the bar exam.

*INTERVIEWS* I've been getting a lot of interviews lately, so keep your fingers crossed!

*THIS PAST WEEKEND* was awesome!  Thursday, we went to the Panthers hockey game (Florida lost). Friday was Ft Myers for an interview, and Saturday night was Def Leppard (FANTASTIC!). The concert was awesome, but now I'm still exhausted.

I guess that's about it....no drama and nothing other than classes going on right now. Time to get back to class.........

 I don't have much time, but a quick update:

Jim and I had a great time in St. Louis. The kids are so much fun!  We volunteered to get bumped from our overbooked flight back to Miami, so we got to spend an extra day.  We each got a voucher for a free round-trip ticket.

We booked our round trip today...we're going back to Vegas, right after the bar exam!!  It will be so great to get away after taking the bar.  This time, we're staying at Harrah's. 

More later, if I can get enough work done.

Happy Easter!

 I forgot something out of my last rant. I walked to my car this morning to leave for school and promptly found a substance on my trunk. It looked like silly string, but it was the color of that cheese you can spray out that looks like silly string. What the hell???

What was I thinking.... [Mar. 4th, 2008|09:13 am]

[mood |crazycrazy]

...when I said there's no excitement in my life?  I take it back. I've gotten plenty of excitement lately, and not of the good variety. Hopefully this entry will allow the universe to lay off of me a bit!  Seriously, this is NOT the kind of excitement I wanted.  NO MORE!!!!! My life needs to get back to normal so that I can do well on my test on Saturday!

Since the weird blackout last week, I thought my life was returning to humdrum normal. Of course, I was wrong.

Yesterday, Jim called me when he was leaving work to let me know that he needed me to take him to the ER. He called again from the parking lot and we hopped in the car and off we went. It took 3 hours. He hurt his right calf, and he apparently has a muscle strain. He can barely walk. If he sits at all and it gets stiff, I have to support him while he's walking. Which is fine and dandy, but I'm not there all the time because of classes.

After the ER, I let him pick what he wanted for dinner and we went to Publix. I was getting eggs and when I turned around to walk back to the cart, I tripped over one of the huge flatbed dollies they use to move stuff around the store. I hit my shin. HARD. I thought it was fine, but when I got home, I discovered I have a hard bump the size of a golf ball on my shin. Now, it's getting bruised. Beautiful. and Painful.

I still have my cold. I've been taking Mucinex, which helps get everything movin, but I'm so tired of blowing my nose and coughing up phlegm. I still lose my voice close to bed time.

To top it all off, my period started today, for the first time since December. My body hasn't yet decided if it wants to cry or if it wants to scream and kick at everything and everyone that comes close to it. I'm bloated, in pain, tired, and my face is broken out.

And today, I ran out of my mineral foundation makeup.
