Because I'd rather do this than write my paper..

10 Years Ago:
Well I guess that would make me...14...freshman in high school, with a huge crush on a senior. That's about all I can remember. Nothing particularly stands out. Maybe coming out of my awkward junior high phase of life?

Things on My To Do List Today:
(well considering its the end of the day, i'll put what i was supposed to do and what I actually did)
Write First Draft of seminar paper - no check.
Get my tooth drilled into - check.
Bank - no check.
Go to class - no check.

What Would I do if I Suddenly Became a Billionaire?
Donate money to Multiple Sclerosis research. Payoff all my student loans and other debts... Buy myself a new house and any one of my family members that wanted one as well. Start my own law firm (Elaine and Tara, y'all can come and be partners in it with me if you want :) ). Travel as much and as often as I can.

3 of My Bad Habits:
Not unloading the dishwasher once the dishes are clean for a week and letting the dirty dishes pile up in the sink (don't judge). Eating out. Messiness.

5 Jobs I've had:
1. Law clerk at firm (now).
2. Law clerk at firm (summer).
3. Intern at Harris County District Attorney's Office.
4. Waitress at Outback.
5. Waitress at Saltgrass.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Me:
1. Before I can sleep the sheets have to be exactly correct and tidy on my bed.
2. On the same note, Im super anal about the cleanliness of my sheets and won't let anything that's not pajamas touch the actual sheets, so jeans, shoes, anything other than pjs, can only touch the comforter.
3. I close my eyes when i brush my teeth.
4. I make to do lists just for the fun of making to do lists, and don't actually ever normally do anything on the to do lists...
5. Sometimes I leave wet clothes in my washer for several days and out of pure laziness don't put them in the dryer or hang them up, and just rewash them again if feel like too much time has passed (more like a bad habit, kind of similar to the not unloading dishes thing - noticing a trend?)

Tag - well...hmph, everyone has already been tagged that would read this and has a blog...

This is me happy.

Well I haven't updated in a while, but that's because my life is kind of really extremely hectic right now. Here's an update of whats been going on:

  • Boyfriend - GREAT! I had the best valentine's day i have ever had. He sent me 2 dozen tulips (my favorite flower), and then cooked me a special dinner of steak and pasta salad and broccoli w/ dessert AND bought me across the universe and we watched that :) He also got me pedals for my bike (see below why i need pedals). I had a great time and he made me feel incredibly special and cared for. What can I say, I have lucked out finally :) We've been officially dating 4 months as of today, and 5 months total. Yea, i'm happy.
  • Cycling: Coming along. I did a 35 mile ride this morning and it was a work out but I felt good afterwards that I finished. My legs felt like jelly though when I got off my bike, but I felt really rewarded. Hopefully the next ride will be in the 40-50 mile range. Slowly trying to work up to 90, whcih is what i have to do the first day of the MS150. The pedals are important b/c you get bike shoes that clip into the pedals which makes the ride a lot more efficient, and trust me they made a HUGE difference this morning, I could go much much faster.
  • Moot Court: I leave THIS wed for 5 days in NY, white plains to be exact for an Environmental Law Moot Court Competition (Did it last year)... We've been practice since school started and I feel almsot ready..hopefully we'll do well. I will let y'all know b/c i prolly won't post again till I get back.
  • Job hunt: well nothing to update there, still no job yet..well i have a part time job at a firm.. we'll see.
  • Get to see a BUNCH of college friends in the next month at Elaine and Jen's weddings. So excited to be back will all my Baylor kiddos. Yay! AND get to introduce Patrick to all of them, yes at the same time, but he's good. haha.

That's about whats goin on in my life...

Much love.

Yay: Amazing boyfriend and beautiful days to ride..

Dang: Sunglass lines on my face from the sunburn in FEB.

This is me hating my teeth.

As some of you may not know, I have really bad luck with teeth. I pride myself on excellent oral hygeine, flossing, brushing, rinsing, etc. Yet for some reason my teeth like to retaliate. I have had two root canals, and now have two crowns, and countless fillings for cavities. I am the lucky inheriter of soft enamel from my grandpa on my mom's side. Well, that brings me to today, the 3rd of Feb, an hour before the superbowl, which I was supposed to be watching with friends, but instead I'll be watching at my apt in a pain killer daze. Why do you ask? Well what started out as a silly little toothache on Thursday, has now, three days later taken over my every being. Last night at about 3:30 am I woke up crying (which apparently you can do in your sleep, who knew) with shooting pains up the side of my face where my tooth is, never a good sign. I took some advil and a few hours later too some more, and then some more, and then some aleve, and yet the pain did not go away. At this point my quality of life was being affected. Luckily my wonderful older sister works at an Emergency Center in Pearland, and so I drove down there, and saw the doctor on duty who prescribed me some antibiotic and pain killer, specifically vicodin, needless to say I am not at home, instead of at my friend's house, with my face still throbbing and waiting for the pain med to take effect. I hate tooth pain and most of all i hate that dentists DONT work on the weekends. I mean I understand, but whatever. I'll be seeing him hopefully tomorrow if not Tues. I think a swollen face is ample emergency.

Other than that, this weekend was pretty low key. I start my new job tomorrow (which is why the dentist appt may not happen tomorrow, not sure how i feel about calling in sick the first day of work) at the law firm and i'm super excited. I got my W-2's in the mail and should be getting a nice middle of the semester present. This week will be super busy once again, i have practice tomorrow night, tuesday, friday and all day saturday again (oh i had practice this past saturday for 6 hours, don't be jeal), and possibly sunday. And then i need to start doing research for my 40 page paper which my first draft is due the day i leave for my competition in NY.

Oh and I"m rooting for the Giants, just to be clear, i think an upset would be nice :)

Much love.

Yay: The boyfriend who is willing to come sit with me during the superbowl so i'm not sitting alone in my pain.
Dang: tooth pain shooting through my face.
