Well, it's over! (We'll I have about one hour left of Insurance Law.)

What I've learned:
1. The teachers you fear the most, will teach you the most.
2. If you think you are the best in the class, you probably aren't.
3. People think I'm smarter than I thought they would.
4. People who you think are your friends aren't necessarily.
5. Stay away from insurance law.
6. If you think you'll love a certain area of the law, you probably won't.
7. Connections count. Network it up.
8. Knowing the law library staff will get you more perks than you think. (Goodbye fines! Hello free bagels.)
9. Law school is high school with more alcohol.
10. Paying attention in class pays off. What did the professor just say?

Well, spring break is over!

It was a fairly nice week for those of us who were glorified babysitters. I was tempted to florida with the promise of my own room (well, for me and jeremy) and free time. I ended up sharing a room with a 6yr old who tried to make me lay video games with her for 5 days straight.

The weather was a little off. We had about three days of sunshine, but by the third day we were burnt b/c the days before it had rained, so we soaked up all the sun all day when it was sunny fearing the rest of the trip would suck.

I spent alot of time playing wii. I learned that is possible to lose gold to Taylor and that I shouldn't let her play my mii when she plays tennis, b/c she easily looses my hard earned points.

On the way home jeremy and i stopped to meet 4-month-old Hailey Pass. She was adorable and had the sweetest cheeks. I wish I could spend more time with that tiny angel.

Today I gave my two-weeks notice to my boss. I feel so freed. Its nice.

Oh, also passed the MPRE (the ethics part of the bar exam.)

It's my last semester of law school. My Ohio Bar application is done. I've bought books and signed up for the MPRE. All I have to do now is study.

The holiday season is over. Christmas was spent running back and forth from Ohio and Kentucky. New Years was spent in the DC area with Danny, Erin, and Leathers. Good times. Hopefully they're be pictures soon!

Well, I must go back to learning about the history of insurance...

Tuesday was gross and rainy. What a perfect day to start off my clerking at the Juvenile Court - nothing like flooding rains, drugs and teenagers in handcuffs.

It was interesting though, I got to sit in on a probable cause hearing to determine whether a juvenile was tried as an adult.

Then I got to come all the way to school for one class, Commercial transactions, which I just don't get. The highlight of the day was obviously our purchase of The Office season two. Already Jeremy & I have watched 6 episodes, deleted scenes and commentary. This is the best show on TV, if you're not watching it, you should be. It took me awhile to get it. In fact, i hate the show initally and berated those who watched it. Apparently my ability to enjoy deadpan humor has greatly increased.



Enjoy your wednesday!

They canceled one of my classes (a five hour one) so I signed up for Judicial externship. Unfortunately I didn't get what I wanted - the assignment that I was obviously more qualifed for than others. I wanted Probabte. I've taken all the Estate Planning relevant courses at UD - included two tax classes. Additionally, I have a job doing estate planning. I don't think anyone else Hhas taken all those clases. I'm so depressed. I get to spend 140 hours working for the Juvenile court now. which might be interesting, but its not at all what I wanted.

I worked late nights at the library last week and I think I have something like jet-lag - my body's clock is completly off. I can't get to sleep until 3 or 4 in the morning... which means I play on the internet all night (I feel like Matt Leathers).

Bored to death... nothing to do...

spend the weekend in cincinatti doing cincinnati things. Jeremy took me to a baseball game and then we spent the night at the Cincinnatian (really cool old hotel). Then we walked around the downtown and weregoing to go to Tiffany's and Saks, but apparently everything in downtown cinci closes at 5pm. So we ended up driving to the Montgomery Inn Boathouse for dinner. It was great.

On the way home Monday, we went to the zoo. It was a great and exhausting weekend. Jeremy got me a great new Tiffanys necklace, so that was the icing on the weekend.

Tuesday and Wednesday were spent in lexington. Tuesday was spent shopping and then spending time with my old friend Sarah Barlow. got caught up in the new J.Crew styles and then discovered that Macy's now carries Michael Kors. Had a great time and now have a new section in my closet. Love making the money in the summer time! Plus, I'm now sporting a cuter short haircut.


Jeremy made fun plans for our anniversary. We're going to Cinci since its close by - he got us a room in the Cincinnatian - this great old downtown hotel. We're going to a baseball game (since thats what we did on our first date) and then going to a fun fancy dinner and then the next day going to the zoo. (I do love cute animals.)

I've been sitting here for 6 hours. I've probably only done one hours worth of work for the library. Most of it is just sitting around here.

I think I've solved the mystery of my 5.50/hr paycheck.
