This happens with me and football. We have a love/hate relationship. Really.
Although, I may be more excited about Vandy than 2009, because I have no plans tonight. Sadness. I have a family christmas tomorrow (in the morning!) that apparently I can't miss. Ugh. I don't want to go, I don't want to go, I don't want to go. I have to though, since it is my 97 year old great grandmother that is having it. For obvious reasons I can't miss it. Plus I still don't have a front license plate either. Joy.

On the other hand, instead of pushing the brake when I was supposed to I pushed the gas and ran Little Car (the name of my car) into a guard rail and tore off my license plate holder in the front. Damn. Took it to the car fixer place, but they said that they would have to order a part in for me. Poor Little Car, but thankfully that was all that was damaged. That and the little faith I had in my driving abilities...
But yay! I got into my undergrad law school that is ranked in the top 60.
So overall, a good day for me.

Home is my sanctuary, my safe place. When I come home, I end up feeling whole again. It's just...restorative out here, in the country I guess.
Right now there is no where else I'd rather be.
Though, I won't be able to get back to school to check my mail in a while, but oh well. I'm okay with knowing that I'm 4 for 4 (with 11 schools pending) so far. No rejections yet.

Oh I got into another law school yesterday. This one is in state, so now I can stay if I want, which it's nice to have the option. I guess the law admission gods heard my prayers... or something to that effect.
I still have a final tomorrow and a take home final due Friday left. What a nice week...
Sunday, December 14, 2008
I'm 2 for 13 (accepted into 2 and still waiting to hear from the other 13...) No rejections yet either.
Now I should probably work on that econ paper, but I think I'll make some celebratory mashed potatoes instead.
And it's Amelia's birthday too! Which is awesome as well.
Such a fantastic day.

I received my first acceptance of my cycle today! I'm so excited. I'll be going to law school next year!
I'm so glad that the first school I heard from was an acceptance. A rejection would have been an awful way to have started off, but...
Tuesday, December 9, 2008
So irritated. Checked status checker. Told that decision letter sent on the 5th. Still haven't received said letter. Would be more understanding, but the school itself is only 1.5 hours away from me. I could have driven to get the damn thing for crying out loud. Also, I applied to the law school at my undergraduate school. I walk by the law school building everyday. I want to walk in and see if they have my decision letter too.
I have zero patience. ZERO.

In other news, I've never blogged about my 'love' life before, or rather my lack of one, because obviously there hasn't been a need to and I don't feel that it's relevant to the purpose I want this blog to serve (recording the law school admission process) but there is this boy who is trying it seems to ...do what boys do, or something like that. He'll text or facebook wanting to hang out and whatever, I turn him down. I just don't know. It takes a lot of talking and time for me to be comfortable with people and I just don't know him yet and when he keeps wanting to come over, usually at night, to hang out...well I don't know. Something about that makes me uncomfortable - not in a 'he's going to attack me sort of way' but a 'this is my space, MY SPACE, stay out, boys are yucky' kind of way. Also, I'm not attracted to him which could be an issue and maybe not. Maybe getting to know him I could be attracted to him, who knows. He's nice and took pictures of Obama on November 4th when he won.
Blah. I don't know. My first reaction when he texts is 'don't text me.' Which is probably a sign of where this is heading... just saying. So this is all probably for naught, but cathartic nonetheless.
Oh! and I took a quiz
Your result for The Attachment Style Test...
29% Anxiety Over Abandonment and 57% Avoidance Of Intimacy
You are most comfortable without close emotional relationships. It is very important to you to feel independent and self-sufficient, and you hate the idea of having to depend on others or having others depend on you. The very few times you have fallen in love, it was probably with someone unattainable and disinterested. You know how to have a good time with your friends, but when it comes time to bare your deeper feelings, you tend to laugh nervously and change the subject.
Fictional character with whom you might identify: Captain Jack Harkness (Doctor Who/Torchwood), Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany's)
|Other Attachment Types:|
|Secure:||The Unicorn|||||The Cuddleslut|||||The Free Agent|
|Preoccupied:||The Cling Wrap|||||The Squid|||||The Insect|
|Fearful:||The Doormat|||||The Leper|||||The Exile|
|Dismissing:||The Hermit|||||The Stone|||||The Player|

Florence and the Machine
The final count is 15. I applied to 15 law schools. A part of me thinks this is overkill, another part thinks I should keep applying. It could happen. I only meant to apply to 12. Then I sat down at the computer and next thing I knew I was filling out applications and hitting the 'submit' button. Damn LSAC and it's convenient website.
I have to work on two papers over break. Thankfully, only one of them is somewhat due when I get back to school (I have to make a 30 minute presentation). I also have to do an interview project, but that won't be too awful.
I love being home.
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
I'm so impatient. Accept me! Oh law school admission gods, here my pleas, accept me into your law schools! I promise to try and be a good student. At the very least, I'll try to not bring shame upon your law school name. I'll do something with my law school degree too and where the school name on sweatshirts and sweatpants with pride. Just please, let me into your schools and do it soon. The wait is killing me.
Though in all technicalities I've only been waiting (at the maximum) for 6 days and (at the minimum) for 1 hours...still.
I applied to my undergrad's law school today. That one terrifies me. Our law school is actually pretty good and my LSAT score is in the 25th - 75th percentile range, though it's a bit closer to the 25th percentile than I'd like. I'd be so heartbroken if my undergrad's law school were to reject me.
I'm going to develop an ulcer.
I skipped work today, the whole today. I slept instead. My body needed it. I've been so exhausted for the past few days. I'm going to nap now. Maybe it will make time faster...
Sunday, November 16, 2008
So kids remind your professors to send in their letters!
I really want a puppy but I can't have one at my apartment. Damn it.
I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving break. Though I'll have to write a paper over it... oh well.

Call me crazy, but I don't think the American people would have elected a terrorist, I don't think the media would have let that little fact just slip by, but my parents are convinced that they did. I tried to rationalize this with my dad today but he was having none of it. Which really makes me sad because between my parents, my dad is the rational one. He was the one I would always discuss politics with because we had different opinions we could have a calm discussion about it and that meant a lot to me. Now I feel as if I can't discuss politics with him or my mom because they aren't thinking rationally right now.
It makes me sad that I can't share this monumental historical event with them and discuss it with them. I've always valued what they have had to say and I feel like that is loss right now because they are so upset that McCain lost. I tried to discuss with my dad the fact that Palin didn't know that Africa was a continent, but he just wouldn't hear it.
On the brightside, he did say that he thought California should have failed Prop 8 (No to H8). So, maybe there is some hope.

But, it is my birthday! and my school's homecoming too. Which is kind of exciting... and kind of not. Meh.

My roommate's birthday is today. Yay! She's now 21.
My dad got out of the hospital today. Thank God.
I took the LSAT on the 4th. When I got out, I felt okay. I didn't feel the urge to drink myself into a stupor or anything like that, though I can easily understand why someone would. I really need to finish my law school applications. I should find out my score in about ten days or so. I hope I did well enough so that I don't have to retake the damn thing in December. That would be awful. I don't even want to think about it right now. Back to The Practice.

Then I went to the festival. It was kind of fun, but not really. I went to it last year and the first night is the best night to go. Of course the first night was last night... so being the responsible (nerd) kid I am, I stayed in and ate cookie dough ice cream instead.
My team won today too and so did Vanderbilt. Yay! I love college football. I love this season.
Visited my dad today too. He's doing alright, but it doesn't look like he's getting out of the hospital anytime soon. On the brightside I can see him everyday, but I know it sucks for him to be here. I just wish he would get better.

4.) I don't know what to tell you...
3.) I understand but on the other hand...
2.) I guess...
My LSAT class was canceled. The power went out on campus, so no light=no class. The class is rescheduled for tomorrow. I feel so overwhelmed though. My score dropped 7 points and I need to do a major edit on my personal statement. Also, I did poorly on a paper last week, so I'm going to write another paper this week. Thankfully, I have no tests. I guess this means I just need to get down to business. No more procrastinating.

This post probably doesn't make a lot of sense. That's probably because I've already had 3 (or was it 4?) vodka shots and many more to come!

The teacher came in this morning and says, "I have two things to say. The first is I realize that the top button of my dress is missing and secondly, I am 87% margarita, 3% gin and 10% dehydration, so cut me some slack. And yes, the second part may be related to the first." It was a good class though. It's always good practice, in the very least. I need to be doing my homework for it. I kind of slacked off last time, but I wanted to do when I had time and could fully devote my attention to it. I guess I'm just going to have to make that time for it.
My family is coming up for the football game today. I'm excited. It should be a fantastic game, a blow out really. And Amelia wants to hang out tonight! I rarely see her anymore, she's always with her boyfriend it seems. So hopefully, it'll be a great Saturday.

I have to admit, I did get pretty excited during one part of it though. We were reading a law passage from the reading comprehension section. The passage we were reading was an actual case. Those in law school will know it as the 'hairy hand' case (maybe). The one where the surgeon preforms surgery on a guy with a burn on his hand. He takes skin from his chest and grafts it onto his hand. Of course, since it's hair from the man's chest, it's rather hairy and the guy ends up rather displeased with the surgeon. I think the case is from 1929 (New Hampshire was maybe the state?) or something like that. Anyway, when we were reading it, the teacher lady said that it was the type of case we'd be reading in law school and that was it for me. I just felt so excited reading it and happy too. I love love history and that's what the case kind of felt like to me. It felt like reading and analyzing history to determine it's relevance to now and I really liked that. Needless to say, I feel pretty confident with my choice in applying to law school. Now I just need to get on that...

It was beautiful. I felt like I had died and gone to heaven, seriously. The view of the field was outstanding, there was chips, chex mixes, potato chips, and peanuts everywhere. Free sodas and beers were in the fridge (access to a fridge!!). And maybe the best part about it, the suite had it's own bathroom. Heck yes. It was amazing. The whole thing was amazing.
It was great hanging out with my family too. My family is great. My parents are supportive and I get alone well with my younger brother (there is only a three year difference between us). He's great. He's a senior in high school, but he acts so mature. What I really admire about him is his convictions. He defends his beliefs and doesn't back down to pressure. I wasn't that strong in high school and I'm not even sure I am now, but this kid... he won't bend. He has no desire to drink, ever and honestly believe he won't. Unless he makes the decision (on his own) to drink. I seriously doubt he will drink because his friends want him to, if he ever does, it'll be because he wants to. I admire that. A lot.
I've been editing my personal statement today. This will be my fourth edit on the thing. I'm so tired of it. I dread doing it. To make matters worse, some of the law schools I'm applying to want their applicants to include why they want to attend the school in their personal statements. The personal statement I've been working on is a broad one, which means this fourth edit will not be my final edit.
I just want to be done with the thing.

Ugh, but of course, I have plenty of homework to do this weekend also. I have to write a short paper over a book (the Epic of Gilgamesh) but I don't think that'll take two long. I have to do my Latin quiz and translations, but that'll take maybe two hours. And finally, I have to read three articles for Economics and I have to read some for my feminist class. It's just a ton of reading. Okay, Gilgamesh reading and paper today and tomorrow. I'll do Latin tomorrow too and maybe the feminist reading too and I'll save Economics for Tuesday.
Big football game tonight. I'm so excited. I love football and my college is supposed to do well tonight too. Most sports analysis' have us picked to win. I love college football.

On the brightside, this diagnostic did instill the fear in me again about the LSAT. So maybe I'll start studying that hardcore. Though right now I'm getting ready to watch some Dexter and I'm eating Peanut Butter Panic Ice Cream (it's delicious. I drove to campus to get some).
There's more I want to say and could, but maybe later.
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
No classes today. I did meet with my capstone advisor. Or at least, I hope he's my capstone advisor. I asked him to be, but he never said yes, just arranged a meeting with me during which we discussed topic for my senior paper. I'm pretty sure that means he's my advisor. I had a meeting for tutoring too. I got my schedule. Apparently I said I'd work 14 hours... I'm pretty sure I changed that, but oh well. It's not that important.
I'm tired of doing homework. I still have to read two articles for economics. I should get on that... but I'd rather watch Dexter.
Didn't do any law related stuff today. My LSAT class starts tomorrow. I've been slacking off on the studying something awful. Hopefully this class will motivate me to get focused on it again. I need to work on my personal statement some more too. I'm so tired of working on it. I want to be done with it.

Amelia, Clementine and I went driving around tonight and it was so much fun. We were driving through the country and blasting the Beatles, "With a Little Help From My Friends" and Aqualungs, "Brighter Than Sunshine." All in all, a fantastic day.
As far as law school stuff goes, I turned in a transcript request stuff today. Hopefully LSDAS will be receiving that soon and processing.
Oh, and if you're someone who is reading this because your 'blawg' is on my blog roll, then I just want to say that I love reading everyone's blawgs and that they have helped me to decide whether law school is in my future (which I believe it is.)
