Booked our limo yesterday and got a fabulous deal. I also got the stuff for my cake topper. Not sure I love it yet. Not much else going on. Wow 2006 less than 15 hours away! None of my grades are in of course. I hate law school. At least next semester they have to get my grades in quickly re: graduation. I’ve been slacking on my workouts this week. I’ll try to get back into it next week.Hope you all have a healthy, prosperous, blessed 2006.
Don’t you love when the day grades are due is the first day of the semester? They really are stupid and incompetent.
ETA: and the school’s grade website is screwed up. Last year Spring semester, I got my Evidence grade while sitting in another class being taught by the same professor. How ironic!
Booked the videographer today! He agreed since my situation is somewhat unique. It would make more sense to book now than wait until August when I’ll start planning again after studying for the bar and final exams. Next photographer and church. Hopefully by the end of January.
I’m meeting with the videographer I love tomorrow. I actually almost cried twice and kept watching one of his samples over and over again. I can’t wait. I am going to see one couple’s whole recap and hopefully put down a deposit. I’m glad. I told D again, I want to book the church ASAP. I’m thinking that, the photographer and possibly the florist and ceremony musicians (if we get them). I ordered the supplies to make our cake topper myself. We’ll see if it turns out good. I still have to buy some silver/platinum spray paint. I’m hoping I do a good job. It is my first DIY project. I’m making a mongram topperwith swarovski crystals on it.
Went shopping wiht my dad and other half sister. She lives in SC with her mom but came up for Christmas and is staying with my dad in NJ. We had fun. I came back home and cleaned the house for a few hours, did some laundry. The kitchen is pretty clean but I want to defrost and clean that thing we call a fridge (Own house in NJ in T minus 14 months or less!!!!) I dusted in the living room and a little in our bedroom, cleaned the bathroom. Still need to finish our room, living room and throw out old roommate’s unclaimed mail. Why the Spring cleaning now? Well I am trying to rid my life of clutter and since I had the energy and determination, I figured I should start. Also I want this place very clean before school starts back because things tend to pile up. Just bought Strategies and Tactics for the MBE by Emanuel and Walton. I’ve gotten a few good reviews.
Any way, Merry Christmas!!
I’m going to my mom’s house for dinner and then D and I will be going to his parent’s house! I hope to see little Stefan, he’s so sweet. Xenise and Josef won’t be there, they’re with their parents in PA. Still house window shopping! Love to you all.
Did my 47 minute workout this AM before I had to leave to take my final. it’s my 3rd workout day for the week. I also walked 15 blocks to the LIRR Nostrand ave station. That was not fun, I hate being hot and cold at the same time. I’ve walked much further distances so it didn’t phase me (south street seaport to 42nd st. one hot summer day, now that’s a real walk!!!). My final wasn’t too bad, it was all these short answer questions, kinda weird, not her usual style. Hoping for good grades but glad it’s finally over. Finalmente nada mas!!!!!!!!! I got home to damn jury notice, with some weird phone in instuctions for 1/11. Don’t they know a 3rd year law school student is not a good jury candidate. It could impact my career though if I insist that I’ll base my decision solely on jury nullification.
Finally got my voicemail back. Bank wouldn’t return my $33 but I did apply for an overdraft account so I’ll never have to worry about that fee again! I had one when I used to have a citibank account.
2006 will be my year!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok so I’m graduating from the law school bitch in 2006
I intend to pass, NY, NJ and waive into DC bars.
If I pass the NY and NJ bars on the first shot, D says he’ll move wherever I want. you don’t know how many times we’ve faught about this!!!!!! I’m so happy. I’m going to be studying my ass off for these exams. I can’t wait for next year. I’m thinking we’ll move to NJ, probably buy a town house or Condo. I can’t wait. I feel positive for the first time in a long time. Thank you Jesus, there is a light, however small, at the end of this tunnel.
they postponed the Christmas show at my sister’s school to jan 5th. My mom isn’t going to go though because it’ll be kind of silly hearing holiday songs after Christmas and New Years.
Sometimes I think it would be more prudent to stuff money under my matress than actually put it in a bank account! Don’t you love $33 overdraft fees that you have to speak to a brank manager to get returned. I love having automatic withdrawals for my investments especially when I’m broke and just made a $100 deposit yesterday. I hate banks. Commerce doesn’t always suck but they are pissing me off. I get to call an asshole manager tomorrow! The assholes at Cingular deleted my voicemail from my account. So now I can’t access my voicemail and they have been trying to reinstall it all day. I feel like I’m stuck in a fucking hole.
My little sister’s Christmas pageant at school is on Thursday and I’m going to miss it because of my bus orgs final. I do not have the Christmas spirit this year. Don’t know why. we don’t have any decorations up, no tree, no lights, nothing. I don’t have any decorations any way nor the time to put them up. D doesn’t care about decorations either (his parents are pretty religious pentecostals but there’s this issue with Christamas and not actually being related to the birth of Christ, Christ wasn’t born in winter etc. it’s all in the Bible) so now we don’t have decorations. I’m sure my mom has some up. I saw the lights outside but a tree wasn’t up when I was there last. I’m sure we’ll have decorations when we have kids. I think it’s important for them.
Two more finals to go. This week was my first doing Slim in 6. I’ve done 4 workout days so far, two more to go. I am getting used to it but I have 5 more weeks and the workout intensity increases. I am sure I can do it. My goal is to lose like 10 pound in the 6 weeks. I think it’s a healthy goal, a little over 1 pound a week. I’ve still been controlling my eating habits, rarely drink soda now and I’m into drinking seltzer water now too. If I lose this weight, I should be in good shape for when I go try on my wedding dress. I can’t wait to see it in February. I am also going to start PMBR questions for the bar exam, during the break. I’m going to focus on that and my MPRE review and doing my work-study. Overall, I think I owe 90K for my college and law school loans. Yuck! Who knows how long it will take to pay that crap off. Maybe I’ll do it over 10-15 years. I hate having debt. This is the only kind I have though. I usually pay off my credit cards in a short period of time.
