I love being busy.

As of right now I have 4 different to-do lists, and that's not counting the countless reminders on my iPhone, or the 'sticky notes' on my laptop...

I also thrive (academically) from stress, because that's when, and how I perform my best. However, I always forget how finals time makes me crazy--like not sleep, over analyze everything, second guess myself, hate law school, and want to eat copious amounts of candy type of crazy. 

I have a performance based final in one class tomorrow, and another on  Thursday where a partner and I do a trial from start to finish...

Then, real finals week starts the last week in April.

To add insult to injury, I have a huge project for work 1400 pages of reading, and then condensing it into a 50 page brief.

As a side note, I had a pretty great weekend.
One Bright Spot: I went mini golfing on Friday night...where I had a hot pink ball and got 2 hole-in-ones. Not even kidding, I'm crossing my fingers that my 'lucky' streak from the mini golf course translates to the next couple weeks at school.

And of course, to anyone and everyone going through finals over the next few weeks--Good Luck!!!

(I heard this song while studying today--and couldn't help but post it... :D)

What Time Is It?

What Time Is It... 
Take a wild guess:

1) I just painted my nails at Panera so I'll refrain from biting them

2) I ate 2 handfuls of Good & Plenty, a diet ginger ale, and  a decaf coffee for breakfast

3) I've started posting Bieber inspiration on my law school bestie's facebook wall (you can't judge this one too much--his new song reminds me of JT)

4) I'm not wearing makeup (thankfully no breakout...yet)

5) I'm biting my bottom lip incessantly 

Finals in less than two weeks...with so many fun projects due next week.
I'm pry going to go buy stock in Rockstar considering how my consumption is going to drastically increase over the next few days.

Happy Hump Day Friends!
Hope your midweek outlook is brighter than mine :)

Weekend Recap

No lie... it felt like SUMMER this entire weekend, AND it was Law Prom, AND I (finally) saw the Hunger was fabulous.

Friday we had Barrister's Ball, more casually known as law prom. It is kind of the last chance prior to finals for everyone (law students and professors) to relax...and get a little rowdy. It's also a good chance to play dress up.

 I originally had a completely different dress picked out, but it was a little "too much" for lack of a better phrase...and I was really happy the way this one turned out.


With E 'hb' H...

And of course, prom can't be complete without a handsome date...which I obviously had ;)
Plus without even planning it (even though you can't see this) my nails matched S's shirt perfectly. #win.

After a late night, a lazy Saturday was exactly what the doctor ordered (minus the waking up before 8am part). I ended up getting some work and homework done while watching Fringe with S (I'm still completely baffled about the entire show), and then we went to Pitch for an early lunch. Following lunch, we went to see (after me talking about wanting to go see way too much over the past couple weeks) "The Hunger Games." I can't lie, I was disappointed. I'm not sure if it's because everyone told me how incredible the movie was, and I had gotten my hopes up; or if I (incorrectly) assumed that everything from the book would be included; or if I just wanted S to like it as much as I liked the books. Regardless, I liked it--but I think, as always, the books are always better. Saturday night consisted of church with my parents, studying some more, and hanging out a bit with my friend A--and working on his big birthday party...

Sunday started out with a long run with AB... I then spent most of my day putting the finishing touches on an appellate brief for work. I snuck in some time at the driving range, it was my first time out for the year...and it was half bad, half good--so I'm going to focus on the good.  Honestly, it was a super lazy, but mildly productive day...which is exactly the way a Sunday should be.

Hope all of you had the most wonderful weekend.
Here are a song or two to get ya'll moving this morning:
