I think i'll go back to wearing pig tails more often.

This weekend was great! The Maroon 5 concert rocked my socks off (or shoes rather - yes i took them off half way through the show and stood in my socked feet, hey, 3 inch heels hurt after a while). Adam Levine is really hot and does a great show. They did a good mix of old and new stuff which was fun. Sweetest Goodbye, Sunday Morning, and the finale of She Will Be Loved were my favorites. He even did a rendition of Phil Collins Dead of Night "I can feel it coming in the dead of night, oh Lord ..."

The Law Halloween party was the best yet! The night was a blast. It was fun seeing everyone in costumes and also not recognizing people who were in costumes. I love halloween, and it hasn't even come yet. I need to see a scary movie or something on the 31st.

Boyfriend returned!! And brought me lovely souveniers - two magnets (for my magnet obsession) and a really cute shirt from Durango. I am blessed w/ an amazing guy :) I'm glad he's back. I have to say, I do enjoy the non long distance relationship that I finally get to have. It sure is nice being able to see them everyday if I want and actually do normal every day things with. Not to mention I have three classes with him in a row on T/Th, that helps too :).

Now it is no fun school time. I am sitting at my desk right now studying ethics for my ethics bar test on Saturday (that Lainey and Tara get to endure as well). I am on page 43 of the outline, there are oh about 150 pages. Sweet. SO of course why not waste more time and post? I also have to read through a bunch of research for my competition. AND prepare for a practice Voir Dire tonight. OH BOY! Hopefully I will survive this week. And i was planning on going to Baylor HCing, but now i'm not sure its going to be a reality, for once school is taking over my life and I really can't justify it. Boo. Boo. Boo.

Alright, back to studying why L's owe a duty of confidentiality to C's ....

Much love.

Yay: Cool weather, got to wear my new jacket!

Dang: Studying and not being able to enjoy the nice weather.

Shaking will cause explosion

Note to self - when sitting in library at school, do not shake the Arizona Green Tea can EVER. It will explode, all over you and the table and the guy sitting next you will laugh and make a nice comment of "probably shouldn't have done that".

This weekend is going to be great. I can feel it.

Tonight -- Maroon 5 at the Toyota Center w/ Alisa, and a little Calif Pizza Kitchen beforehand. I told Patrick Alisa and I's goal was to get backstage and some alone time w/ Adam Levine. I have to make good on my promise to him.

Tomorrow night -- Halloween Party w/ the law school ppl. Its my last one, and this year the majority of my friends from school are attending. Cannot wait. I have a fun costume -- blueberry muffin from Strawberrry Shortcake - which involves some green and white thigh highs which I think make my legs look weird, but others swear they are cool - and a really fun bonnet (and by fun I mean dorky, which i'm still debating on wearing). OH and my boyfriend will finalllyyyy be back in Houston after hunting in CO all week. About darn time i say.

Intermingled in all this fun is of course studying for the MPRE and researching for Pace and working on trial ad stuff. Its about that time of the year when i start to freak out about school and go into hermit mode. I apologize beforehand for any absurd study habits I might display in the coming days.

Well I guess in accordance w/ that, I should probably get to work since I did come all the way to the library on a friday to do some research that I have yet to do since I got here 30 minutes ago -- on it.

Much love.

Yay: Fun weekend.
Dang: Schoolness.

This is me with an update.

  • Played in a softball tournie for 12+ hours yesterday on the "3L Slackers" team. It was a lot of fun and we ended up making it to the semis and getting third.
  • Because of that tournament every inch of my body is sore today. Boo. I could use a bath. Too bad I don't have a big tub.
  • Sat through a really fun 4 hour ethics review course ---
  • To take the MPRE (multi-state professional responsibility exam) on Nov. 3. In order to get licensed, you have to pass the ethic test. Ironic.
  • I am going to Baylor HCing on Nov 3 after my test! Yay so excited, miss me some Baylor.
  • Still working on my competition. Need to start researching now. Instead of watching tv. oh well.
  • I went and got myself a boyfriend, his name is Patrick, and he is great :).
  • Can't believe Christmas is almost two months away.
  • Going on a CRUISE for a week in the Caribbean the week after finals, soooo excited, yay!
  • Think I found a bike I like.
  • Wish Patrick would get back from Durango now. Thanks.
  • Realized how much I like not being in a long distance relationship. Its nice having someone around all the time.
  • Should probably get back to work, orr watch Extreme Makeover, ok i'll do that then get to work.

Much Love!

Yay: "Hill country flowers" and dessert and a guy that makes me smile.

Dang: Soreness and busy-ness, boo.

This is me after a great weekend.

This weekend was by far one of the best I have had in a while. A group of us when to Boerne, TX (which if you haven't been before is a beatiful place in the hill country) and stayed at Patrick's parents house. They live on a ranch in the hills. They have the BEST backyard I think i have ever seen. Not to mention the most amazingly beautiful view and pool and patio area. They have an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, hot tub, and pool. I was completely in awe the whole weekend. We got there on Thursday night and then went to Floore's Country Store in another small town TX and saw Willie Nelson live.

It was my first Willie Nelson show and I have to say it was so much fun. He played apparently a really long set according to the others who came with who had seen him before. Afterwards we went back to Patrick's and had some yummy chips and queso. Friday was spent laying by the pool and drinking homemade margaritas, which were especially tasty.

Jennifer and I decided to act like 5 year olds and actually play in the pool. As in we dove, we danced (as in ballet/synchronized variety), we did handstand contests. While the boys played a fun game of "take it" where they threw a wet nerf football at each other and if one of them said take it, the other had to well take it. As in get hit by the ball. That night we had a bbq and then headed to a local bar. By about 10 we were all tired and headed back to sleep but only ended up staying up late once again. Saturday Patrick and I went to Fredricksburg for a few hours. I really wanted to go b/c i heard how cute a town it was and Patrick obliged. I had a great time there. We walked around, I bought some bath stuff that I made myself from Bath Junkie. Then we headed back to the house. We came back to Houston today, and i have to say I am exhausted. I didn't want the weekend to end and it has been a while since i've felt that way! Definitely will have to make a trip back there and hopefully soon!!

Too bad reality is back upon me. I was enjoying my little jaunt away from the busy-ness of life.

Much love.

Yay: Smiling/laughing/ and altogether being happy :)

Dang: School work. And no more cool hill country weather.

This is me standing up for myself.

In accordance with the top 10 things theme running through my friends blogs right now, I'd thought i'd do my own.

Top 10 Things I did for myself today (if you know me you know this isn't a normal focus)

  1. Signed up for the MS150 in April! My mom was diagnosed with MS about 15 years ago. It is a disease that effects my family physicall and emotionally. I look forward to the ability to ride in her honor. It's a 150 mile bike ride from Houston to Austin. Doing it with a bunch of law school friends. Cannot wait!
  2. Committed myself to an actual physical goal. Definitely need to train for this thing.
  3. Stood up for myself by finally telling someone exactly how crappy they made me feel. (something i also need to do more often).
  4. Let myself dress comfortably and didn't care one ounce.
  5. Slept an extra hour. It was great.
  6. Stopped worrying so much about what other people thought.
  7. Paid attention in class for once. Yes this was something I did for myself b/c it will help in finals.

Ok so maybe only 7 things I did for myself. But hey that's good! I hope everything is going well for everyone. Still waiting to hear about my moot court team. I gave my moot court board director a hard time today at out board meeting. It's driving me crazy and the problem is already out. I want to win it all this year (yes a play on words from sing) and I need to get crack a lackin on that problem. ALright time for Crim Pro.

Much Love.

Yay: Signing up for MS150

Dang: Jaw problems.
