To Do List

It keeps growing with each passing day. Sigh, FML. On the bright side, I'm applying for my legal intern's license! I am very excited about the chance to practice law this summer. I can only pray that I do a good job for my clients!

One week down, nine to go!

Why I Blog

Every time I search the internet and find a crappy website, I like to pat myself on the back for writing such a damn good blog. Yup, that was as cocky as it sounds.

I write because I have something to say. Last year, I wrote because there were so many things I should have said. So many things have changed since last year and have changed for good. I'm in a relationship with a loving, sweet man and I have the best dog companion ever.

That being said, I love to share my thoughts with you as I grow into the person I'm meant to be for the rest of my adult life. I'm almost done with law school and I'm beginning my 3rd and final year in less than three months. My family and friends have been absolute angels throughout this whole process and I can't help but wonder if I would have made it thus far without them.

Remember, things in life happen for you not to you.

It's raining cats and Zimbas,

I'm so busy, I don't even have time to watch my favorite shows! Perhaps this is a good thing, I am learning so much from work!

Busy bee,

Shuttin' Down Da Club

Yup. Last night I went out clubbing. Had a fantastic time! I didn't stay any longer 2 hrs but I think that's enough time to get some dancing in- especially if you're wearing 3 inch heels. Congratulations to all of my friends who graduated law school. Such a great achievement!

You can't find me in da club,

Picture of the Day

The love of my life, Zimba. He's been quite the bad little dog lately but that hasn't stopped me from loving him. Now I know why my parents love me so much despite all of the screwing up I do on a daily basis.

Crossing the Finish Line


I just finished my 2nd year of law school yesterday. Whew. No bells, no whistles, just sending in a torture paper that I just couldn't get to be 20 pgs. Professor was pretty cool about it, so I am just happy to say I'm done with all my work this year. 

It was strange waking up without thinking about going to class or finishing an assignment. I started a giant to do list and found myself exhausted after finishing item #1 (mowing the lawn). I still have yet to finish cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming the entire house and the pile of dishes leftover from my exam insanity.

Financial aid for next year is a nightmare. I have no clue what to do. I'm just praying to God that things will work themselves out. I shouldn't be so depressed so close to my birthday.

Birthday Blues

My birthday falls on a Monday this year. FML.

Birthdays have always been a mixed bag for me. In all honesty, I don't want gifts. I'm more interested in seeing my friends and spending time with them. Let's go out to dinner, have a couple of drinks and just relax. There will be cake with a lot of candles.

This year isn't an exception. I wanted to celebrate this weekend, but I"m finding that my friends won't be available. It's graduation this weekend, so a lot of people will be out and about.

I'll be honest, I'm pretty broken up at the thought of spending this weekend alone trying to amuse myself. I just feel like I put so much of myself out there for my friends that when it comes down to the one day out of the year that I just want someone to stop by and say Happy Birthday, it seems like no one cares. I found myself tearing up at the fact that I'd do anything for so many people, but when it comes down to that one day, I can't seem to find anyone who is available.

I'm trying to be a big girl about the whole thing. I'm no longer in elementary school looking to blow out the candles on a cake. I'm also trying to plan a fun weekend for myself, just myself. Thus far I'm thinking about going to the spa, then to dinner, and then to the movies. I think Zimba and I will go for a long jog on Saturday and then spend some time watching all of my dvr'd shows.

Big girls aren't supposed to cry... but can they get a pass for their birthday?

Today's Obsession

Whoa. Before you go all "what the heck is wrong with you, this show sucks" on me, you have to admit that the show has gotten way better than its rocky first season. Well, the season finale is a killer. Not only is the 16 year old daughter of Naomi and Sam pregnant- she gets into a car accident and her teenage husband has to choose between the baby and her spine. INSANE. You know the saying, yo ucan't make this stuff up... well I think they just did.

Tune in on Thursday,

That's the number of posts thus far on Pink Manolos. I can't believe it myself, it seems like yesterday I began this blog to help start up the healing process after my run in with the terrorist. Well, that's what I call him now... I've got one paper and one exam left until I am free for the summer. Test on Tuesday, paper due Wednesday.

Brown eyes is pretty excited about the summer- excited and worried because we will be three hours apart from each other for three months. I think it will be a good test of our love. If you can't spend three months apart without your relationship falling apart then it's probably a bad sign. We will both be so busy that there won't be a lot of time to feel down about being apart. I plan to spend a lot of quality time with my family this year since I am moving back home to work in the other city. I don't know how much time I will spend hanging out with friends, I just feel like a lot of relationships have dwindled for a reason.

I'm incredulous that the weather has gone south so quickly. It's 48 degrees and absolutely freezing outside when just a few days ago I almost passed out after running with Zimba. That's midwestern weather for ya- very finicky and difficult to predict. I've learned not to waste my time checking the forecast, they are usually always wrong.

Just a few more days...

Feeling Better

Whew. I got pretty sick a few days ago and I'm so happy to get back to work. I must admit, I've never felt so unmotivated to study before. Lucky for me I have plenty of time before my first exam (5 days to be exact). I'm at Panera trying to focus on writing a paper and make a decent study schedule.

Summer is creeping up on me, my parents are estactic to have me move back home for work. I don't know how I feel about it, the thought of having to live at home after living independently for 6 years makes it seem absolutely dreadful. No turning back now, I made the decision to work in Dayton instead of Toledo because it would be economically advantageous of me to live at home and save money over the summer.

So excited to start work! My brother still doesn't understand that I will have "ESQ." at the end of my name in a year or so!
