New Year

Admittedly I am more excited about Vanderbilt winning its first bowl game in 53 years than I am about 2009.

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.

Today I found out that I got into my undergraduate's law school. Holy moly I am happy. I was terrified that they were going to reject me. My LSAT is between their 25th percentile and median score (which I know sounds neurotic...), so I was afraid it wasn't going to be accepted. Plus, I'm their baby! You can't reject your baby...or at least you shouldn't, but thankfully none of this was the case. I can stay right where I am for at least the next three years if I so choose.

Thank goodness.

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 for the holidays. I love it here. The house is big and roomy. I just lay around, read books, watch tv, get on one of the four computers and mess around on the internet, and hang out with the three dogs.

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.

Finals Week

Took my first final today. It was easy... probably because the second test in the class was awful, so the teacher felt bad and made the final easy. Yay!

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...

Heck yes.

Got in to another law school today! One that I'm seriously considering going to and one that my dad likes (that's important). Oh and it's in a city I could live in and the school has a great sports law program (and I love sports...) This could work. It could so work.

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 got my one.

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...

yay acceptance!

Come on mail, just get here!

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.
