What to say...

Sorry for the absence! I don't really have a good excuse for not posting, just got busy, I guess. I was still reading other people's blawgs, but not updating my own.

A few weeks ago I went to the negotiation regionals. Didn't get to advance, but it was a good experience.

Also a few weeks ago, I started dating someone. I like him. It's kind of strange, because I don't usually like people. I don't even know if you can really even say we're dating, but I like him and he says that he likes me, so yeah. We've been taking it day by day.

The timing is shit though. Because *cue scary music* finals are approaching! And considering the fact that he is in the law school too (he's a 3L) we're both all kinds of busy. Not like I've really seen him much in the past three weeks anyway, but finals are definitely not going to help this.

Finals scare me. Lots. All I have been craving for the past month is comfort, in forms of hugging, cuddling, and food. Mostly I've been craving comfort food, like mashed potatoes, pasta, sweets, that kind of stuff. It's bad. I'm going to gain 300 lbs in a month.

Also, speaking of stress, turned in my memo for Legal R & W. At least that class is over with. The memo though, what an insane project. I think it's a stamina test more than a skills one and I'm not sure how I measure up.

Well, with that said, I ought to go study...

Law School is tiring

So tired all the time! It's ridiculous. And I'm not just physically tired, but mentally exerted as well. I'm a workhorse, but I'd like just one day, just a one day break where there is no law school and just naps, tv, and good food/wine.

I took my contracts midterm a couple of weeks ago, but he hasn't returned it yet. I'm getting pretty anxious about it. I did well on my torts midterm, my score on that was in the top 10% of the class and I'd like to keep that going.

My Memo 3 is due in a couple of weeks. I finally started on it, doing some research on WestLaw last night. I don't mind the memos, I don't think they take long when you just sit down and do them, but I have trouble doing just that. Plus I'm nervous about this one, because the Prof. Legal R & W pretty much held our hand through the first two and those aren't for grades. This one is and there hasn't been near as much guidelines with it either, so it just makes me nervous because I'm not sure if I'm looking at the correct jurisdictions, if I am understanding the issues presented, and just all that.

Finals are almost a month away now. My torts outlines is pretty caught up, but needs some massive editing. Contracts hasn't been updated in a while, not since the midterm. I haven't started my civil procedure outline, but I'm going to... soon. Hopefully. Maybe tomorrow night? Yeah, well, probably not, but a girl can dream.

This weekend is regionals for the negotiation competition. I'm looking forward to it, actually. Kind of nervous about it as well. I'd like to do well. No, I'd like to kick ass and go to nationals, that's what I'd really like. That would be fabulous.

And finally, probably the most exciting news... we got a puppy for my Dad for his birthday (it's on the 11th).
