Hey JThere are a million reasons why I love J. Too many in fact to explain in a mere blog post. After J stumbled upon my blog "accidentally" (on purpose) last night and read about the law school guys getting hotter, well, I think his feelings were hurt. In retrospect, the post was meant to be a laugh for my lady friends, as we happened to be talking about guys just then and the ones they thought were "hot." And, although I am happily married, I still can agree as to whether a male is attractive or fugly. So, I posted it. They looked, we laughed and continued on...
Now I feel bad for posting it- for J's hurt feelings. And the fact remains, that the guys in law school aren't even comparable to J. When I first came to law school I got tons of advice, and a lot of it revolved around relationships and friendships with the opposite sex. "Don't get into a study group with guys" "Introduce J to everyone" blah blah blah. But the simple fact of the matter is, that the reason I find it easy to be married and be friends with guys is that none of them hold a candle to my husband. Another friend and I got into a conversation about this, and both of us agreed that, for us at least, the "temptation" we heard so much about prior to law school is nonexistent. My classmates are great and I certainly would set them up with any of my other friends, they're great catches. But, the best part for me, is that I already have a great catch- the best in fact- the SHARK of catches (even in that scary mean way!)- in J.
So, J, hopefully you've taken the time to accidentally-on-purpose meander this way again- and maybe your hurt feelings have mended a bit. Because I don't look at anyone else the way I look at you- because you are my everything. Forever. (like in that scary stalker way... because we both know... "I find you!").
I love you. :)

Wasted TimeSo, apprently I enjoy wasting valuable study time in the library by getting on my blog and writing about nonsense.
Literally, I got nothing people.
I have 0 motivation to study, despite my outline for Torts, which ends at Battery (yes, like the second thing we talked about). Luckily, my friends McLucky and McHomewrecker are here to keep me company. I love it.
And apparently the guys in law school are getting hotter. Weird, or amazing? You decide.
Thank god I have J. Stress sucks.

Life is BeautifulIs it wrong to sit in the library, writing on your blog you’ve neglected for months, when you have a locker full of “real work” to do, but no motivation with which to do it?
Yeah, I didn’t think so.
So, about the whole “not blogging thing”… not that expect anyone still checks my site, I would have given up months ago, and, frankly, at this point, I’m not even sure I have anything of merit or worth about which to write. My life is pretty dull. I go to school at 7 and stay until late. I eat crap that is not healthy for me and bitch about not losing weight. I cry at least once a week, which I suppose, is you know me, isn’t that much different that LBLS- yeah- that’s Life Before Law School.
LBLS was different. I’m not sure yet whether it was “good different” or just “different.” The jury’s still out on that one… ( get it… law school… jury… whatever). Sometimes I miss making money. Okay- everyday I miss making money. I work the same long hours I did at the firm, only the work is harder and endless. Even as I type this, there are a million things I could/should/ought to be doing, but I just have to take a break. If I had my way, I’d blow off my last class of the day, bundle up in the new coat I’ve been eying, steal away with my girlfriends to Cosi, order marshmellows and hot chocolate and gossip about boys and boots and anything-but-law-school-classes all night. Of course, this is not going to happen. I won’t blow off class, I can’t afford the coat (read: I have no money because I don’t work), and there are no Cosis here in Dayton. And I find it virtually impossible NOT to talk about law school. And yes, it is as annoying as it sounds. Trust me- just ask J.
Life during law school is funny. It is as stressful as I thought it would be- probably worse actually, but, despite all the stress/frustration/dead brain cells I’m going through- I still think it’s worth it. The work is interesting (most of the time) and the classes less scary than anticipated (again, most of the time). My friends are incredible. I’m surrounded, again, by unicorns and feeling less like an elephant. A good step, right?
It hits every now and again, when I recognize the greatness that lies in others and so often fail to see in myself. Law school is no different. Bright men and women surround me and I often worry why I don’t seem to glow quite the same. I can only hope that maybe some of these other people are wondering the same thing. Maybe they’re just not foolish enough to not only admit it, but to post it out there for all the world to see. Whatever. It’s me- it’s what I do.
J and I are great. We’re surviving this law school thing and, even though I think he may want to kill me 90% of the time, he refrains. That’s love.
So, I guess the point of this post is that life is good. I love saying that.
