Football and Brotherly Love

We won the football game. It got a little close for comfort in a few spots, but we won. My family was a little disappointed because they had expected the game to be a blow out and it wasn't, but the other opponent was ranked too and is a great team as well. Anyway, the win may not have been the best part about the game. My dad has a friend who works for a multi-billionaire so we got to watch the game from a box suite.

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.

I'm awful. I haven't studied any LSAT stuff since the practice test on Wednesday. I really need to get on it. I also need to keep editing my personal statement, but I haven't touched that in weeks either. Maybe this weekend.

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.

Today was the first day of my Kaplan LSAT class. I had to take a diagnostic. I got a 158. Not awful, but it's not where I'd like my score to be. Over the summer I was taking practice tests, my average was around a 160. My highest score was a 167. A 158 isn't too far off, but I was hoping I'd at least score in the 160's.

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.

Dexter is an amazing show. Weeds is too. I love them both.

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.

First Day

Today was the first day of classes. Latin is going to be awful, but that was somewhat expected. It was good seeing people again and the weather was perfect.

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.)
