Pay it Forward

I have been emailing back and forth with a very wise friend of mine who took and passed the Bar last year.  She has been giving me advice on how to cope and manage with the stress and what life will look like while I am studying and while I am waiting for results. One of the things that she recommended was reading blogs and websites about the process. Just to familiarize myself with it and to feel like I …

Reeling

Grief is a quiet thing, that sneaks up on me.  It catches in the back of my throat, when I least expect it.  It makes my eyes water and I am stuck deciding whether to have a good cry or whether PCH is a dangerous place for blurred vision. Today I picked up my new wedding set.  Nana decided that it was time that I turn one of her diamonds into an engagement ring.  I have worn all day, but …

the grim reaper wears a very nice suit

My grandpa died early yesterday morning. My grandma was in the bed next to him.  They got to spend his last few days together in an assisted care facility. No one ever tells you that when someone dies, their body isn’t magically taken away – poof! Off to the crematorium.  No one tells you that it actually takes several hours for the grim reaper and his sidekicks to arrive.  With paperwork.  And more paperwork.  And someone, somehow needs to find …

Dig Deep

First weekend of Bar study.  Yeesh. Thursday it started with a late night call from my mom.  Grandpa.  Come soon. We’ve known. And we’ve grown weary of knowing and being anxious and waiting and things looking up and then falling right back down.  It is still soon.  But as to how soon, no one knows.  He is tired. We are tired.  I think mom is the most tired. It is a difficult place to be, to see someone you love …

Topless in the Kitchen

Since I started law school I have been having trouble with tension and pain in my right shoulder.  It has everything to do with how I sit and how I drive and I have been working on that endlessly.  Sitting up straight, taking breaks, stretching my shoulder out, the whole shebang.  But my shoulder muscles get to a point where they are so stretched and tense that they just will not chill.  Even my muscles need to be told to …

Ha!

Remember when I said this semester was going to be nice and light? Ha! In other news, I haven’t had the time nor the inclination to write as of late.  I know that it is something that I should do regularly, whether or not there is something to say, so here I am.  Let’s just call this a stream of consciousness update. My weekends and time not accounted for are rapidly shrinking as I chug on towards summer.  I have …

So.

Sometimes you are down in the dumps and feeling sorry for yourself.  Sometimes you are overcome by January blues and just want to sleep all day.  Sometimes you are so overwhelmed by what is to come that you forget that the day to day is actually going pretty well. And sometimes, wham, something great comes along and smacks you in the face.  And you are so blindsided by it that you don’t even know what to do.  Laugh or cry …

Resolute

I don’t generally do resolutions.  Ever.  I think this comic sums it up best. But, in the fall I joined Go Mighty!  And have slowly been moving my life list over there and adding to it.  So, what I have been trying to legitimately tackle are cooking related goals.  I am open to more goals, but the New Year seems like a good time to find my way back to more fruits and vegetables.  More whole foods. I have not …

The Beginning of the End

Tomorrow marks the beginning of my last semester of law school.  Big conversations about where we will be living and what life will look like once it is over have been happening.  Rob and I will be moving in with my parents the week I graduate.  I anticipate spending a good two to three months studying for the Bar and I think my parents’ house is the best place to do that.  Furthermore, once I take the Bar, Rob and …

Whoops

And then there was that time almost a month went by without me posting. In that time, there has been family visiting, Thanksgiving, engagements, and finals.  A lot of finals.  So for now, there is this (for those who know me in facebook land, sorry for the redundancy):
