Law School is this black hole that no one can properly prepare you for no matter how much they warn you to run the other direction and just become a plumber instead so you don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and no life. It makes you forget every good interesting thing about yourself and become trained to issue spot, analyze, and face every minute little flaw you may have in your communication skills. Basically, I know why lawyers are so expensive!! What an experience.......a good one though and one I am still happy I chose. I may have -234666 hours of free time but I it challenges me and keeps me on my toes.
I got through a huge milestone last week of the "oral argument". I've never been one who enjoys public speaking but I must say....I kicked a little butt up there ;). Really glad to have it done and over though!
I have had so little free time (well none really, I steal law school time for fun sometimes). I barely see my friends, family, husband, horse, or even my cats. I am either at work or at school or burried in a computer/book. I miss everyone I treasure in my life so very much and I fear they think I have forgotten about them. Not true! Every day I do a little mental run down on everyone important in my life and send out "good energies" in their directions. Just because I don't talk to everyone everyday does not mean that I in any way love or appreciate them less.
The past few months in particular have been so crazy. Miss E discovered that she will have a wee one joining her life in September and while I was shocked by the realization for a few weeks, I quickly decided this is going to awesome for her. She has always wanted to be a Mommy and I can think of no one else I know who will be a better parent! Plus, I kind of get to be involved a bit which is way cool, especially since I don't want to have children myself. (The law student in me is thinking how I can write a will with the wee one as my heir since I will have no "issue" myself....ahhh!!). I'm so proud of Miss E, she is the bravest person I know and she is my role model for rolling with the speed bumps life throws us. I can tell you she sure has inspired me to follow my dreams and just enjoy life for all that it is.
In the past few weeks I have rediscovered my passion for horses. This is a really bad thing for my studies. I moved my horse to a new barn and I couldn't be happier. I am riding her so much more, really have some points to work on, and went on the most amazing trail ride last week. However this week stuff is catching up with me as I need to be at the barn for the farrier/dentist and I just don't think I can because of work/school commitments. Luckily there is an amazing group of people there to help out and many have offered to be there for me.
