Thought of the Day

App Ad.

It's a horrible class. It's first year stress wrapped up into one nasty little ball. I thought my whole stress quotient from last year was completely over with as soon as I stepped into 2L year. Nope, it's worse. I'm worrying about finding a job, figuring out what the hell is going on in class, trying to get myself to go to class, and not to mention trying to have a life on the side.

I miss my beau. He's busy working on his paper which is due tonight. I can't complain. Smart, handsome guy working hard to make a future for himself.

Meanwhile, I was so flustered today I walked out in flip flops in 60 degree weather. Did I mention that I didn't even have a chance to straighten my hair?

Diane Von Furstenberg

... Invented the classic wrap dress.

On a side note, if you have been on, Herve Leger dresses have gone down in price in a big way from a year ago. I'm pretty excited, I'm hoping to purchase one in the near future. Who needs food when you can wear couture?

Ten Things

2L Year

  1. Exhaustion- I am so busy that I never get enough sleep these days.
  2. Job Interviews- You are out begging for a job on a daily basis. Did I mention the recession has almost mutilated the legal job market?
  3. New Friends- Believe it or not, 2L has allowed me to meet more people in the law school who I never knew existed. It's a great adventure.
  4. Harder Classes- I yearn for the good old days of offer/acceptance and consideration. I can't believe I thought 1L was difficult.
  5. Super Involved- I'm heavily involved in SBA and BLSA. I think my BLSA position requires a lot more work, but I find it to be very rewarding.
  6. Puppy- Zimba is settling into the house. He still has a lot of issues with separation anxiety, but we are finally going outside to potty on a regular basis. He's the love of my life and I am so glad I decided to drive 8 hours to get him.
  7. Relationships- My relationship with Mr. Safety has officially ended. My new guy, Brown Eyes, is quickly becoming an important part of my life. He's sweet, intelligent, and probably the funniest guy I have ever met. I can't stop laughing when I'm with him. Let's hope he chooses to stick around.
  8. Adulthood- I have 2 more years of school. No turning back now.
  9. Wisdom- Each passing day helps me become wiser about life in general.
  10. Acceptance- I'm learning to accept the things about myself I cannot change and appreciate the good stuff.

Thought of the Day

It's still 84 degrees outside. It's September. Why can't I break out my fall collection? Because I would die of a sweaty, stinky death in this heat trap known as the Midwest.

Life is good. Just when I decided to swear of men and dating, I meet one that I'm totally head over heels for. He's tall, dark, handsome and did I mention top in our class? There's nothing sexier than a man with intelligence. He's got a big heart to boot. Mr. Safety has sulked off, I still feel a connection to him, but I may have found the man that I need in Brown Eyes. We shall see how long he sticks around. He still has no clue that I do not put out yet... Maybe once he finds out, the countdown will begin.

Be Fabulous or Go Home,

Quote of the Day

"Can't you see I'm sick, I've been wearing flats all week"

A surefire way of telling whether I'm feeling well or not is a quick look at my feet. If I'm wearing flats, chances are I'm probably feeling ill. My throat is still bothering me and I've had the toughest time getting my work done for class. Oh well, that's life right? I guess the upside is I turned in a major paper today and I hit a paper topic out of the park yesterday. Good thing, I'll need my Professor's recommendation if I want a clerkship. Looks like all the firm jobs are gone.

Unfancy feet,

Today's Obsession

I got this in the mail today. It's gorgeous! I am trying to keep myself from buying this in every color.

Obsession of the Day

Or should I say, not disgust of the day.

Who the hell wears a raceback tank top with a scarf?

I'm just saying....

Poem of the Day


BY: P. Manolos

Inside the chasm of my innermost light

Something stirs my soul to awaken in a start

A foreigner I have longed for in my separatist heart

The feminine responds to the masculine with a gasp of shocked fright

Running, seeping, fleeing and weeping from the night

Senses implode to touch, to feel, to heal, to break apart

My eyes are wide open in fear of this dangerous delight

To suddenly love again, to love without regard to its true art

In bittersweet moments, I weep for the days of safe conformity

The risk of pain, of drowning in the deep recesses of loss

Yet, I crave you and unabashedly embrace this new, unchartered theme

Passion and lust discovered, without thought to carrying a heavy cross

When the tide breaks dawn, I stand alone in a beautiful, strange dream
