paying $100,000 to read, write, and not sleep. excellent choice.

at the request of hotpantsTM, i'm interrupting my regularly scheduled case briefing and reading to bring you this blog post.  brief as it may be, it's still a post (with pictures, mind you) nonetheless.*

so here's the deal: my life is cuh-razy and i am bizzzay (that's crazy and busy, just in case you had trouble discerning my dirty street lingo).  let me break it down like this - i recently posted this on surferwoman's facebook wall:

yes, i already know - there is a disgusting typo in there.  the word "about" is supposed to be "AMOUNT" as in "amount of reading."  gahhh, i'm a failure.

so that's it in a grammatically incorrect facebook post - i've been ridic busy reading my life away.  kind of weird that i'm paying over $100,000 to read for hours on end (somehow have to remember and apply, more importantly, all of it).

and just because i know how much all of you freaky voyeurs like pictures, here's my desk - in shambles and unorganized omg:



and this is what bailey does while i study:



see, so there you have it, i'm a busy busy bee!  a busy bee who misses and loves all of you and will definitely make the rounds to read your blogs and catch up in y'all's lives in my "spare" time!
in other news, i start teaching 11th grade girls sunday school tomorrow which i'm super stoked about!  and quasi has an MMA fight tonight in vegas.  i'm a littttle nervous to say the least.  i'll let you know how it all goes down.  i'm bummed i couldn't be there to watch and support him, but mandatory law school orientation kind of cramped my style.

*have you ever thought it's weird that "nonetheless" is all one word?  i mean really, it's three separate words in one to build one mega run-on word.  weird.  or maybe not.

Kerri said...

Wow, law school sounds reallllly awesome :) No really, you are going to do amazing! It inspires me to go big or go home. I love your sweet blog!

Allyson said...

I would be all "beyotch, puleaze...you can totally read 9 chapters, write a 10 page brief AND blog"...except that hubs started his master's program about 5 weeks ago and since then it's been nothing but read, write, answer questions, group work, and a LOT of moaning coming from that side of the room. So, we feel ya! (On the plus side, I've gotten a LOT of jewelry posted and scrapbooking done). I would like to say that this will all be worth it in the end but a) you know that and 2) it doesn't matter right now. That SO doesn't help. Congrats on drinking water while you study instead of wine, though. Should help that whole "retention and apply" thing.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Yay!! I'm glad that even though you're crazy busy that you're doing well!!! Good luck with school!

Ed said...

We'll still be here when you get back.

Unless we go somewhere.

Bathwater said...

I will think nonetheless of you for ignoring me all this time for law school when you are representing me at my parole hearing (because by the time you get your law degree I'll probably already be in trouble) pro bono mind you.

Tamara Nicole said...

Go get em girl!!! :-)

stefanie said...

for some reason nonetheless doesn't bother as much as inasmuch. i don't know why because i guess they're exactly the same when you think about it. three words put together to make one word. weird.

A Real Housewife said...

keep up the hard work and GOOD LUCK!!!! i'm thinking of going back to school myself...and i'm due in november. what the eff am i thinking?!

Ams said...

I don't know how you do it!! Seriously, I am such a loser when it comes to school (for real) that just hearing all the stuff you have to do makes me break into hives!!!!!
You're going to do amazing...that being said - get your booty back here and keep us posted on how you are doing because I miss you terribly!!!
xoxoxo

Tara said...

bailey looks pissed and like she's starving! i hope you're not neglecting her too much while you're busy reading!

hotpants™ said...

Quasi's a fighter? Wow. Impressive.

Thanks for the update. Good luck with law school. I can only imagine how tough it is. A perfectionist like you should do just fine. ;)

Rachel Cotterill said...

Hmm, your desk looks pretty organised to me! Good luck with the studies :)

MiMi said...

Yeah.
You are a disgusting freak with that mess there.
And the typo...you should be ashamed.

NOT.

Candice said...

Your hard work will pay off in the end.

Hang in there!

Corinne said...

This weekend I played around with the idea of going back to school...going to law school.
hmmm...I don't know how well that's going to work out for me now that I've read this.... ;)

Marian said...

You got this....its in the bag!! And like everyone else said...we'll still be here:)

Brittany said...

Oh the joys of school! I start back NEXT week! Ahh. I will be blogging a whole lot less as well. No worries. Law school comes first! Hang in there :)

DSS said...

So I'm going along reading this, and thinking "poor thing...all of that reading...so glad I didn't go to law school...although she will be glad one day..." AND THEN...the pic of Bailey. For some reason the look on her face made me (in a hot second, not after deliberation) think she was saying "What chu talkin' bout Willis?" And now I can't stop laughing....

jayme said...

jessalyn said...

um. i think we need a g chat. i miss your face.

and tell law school that reading is for nerds and they can call you once they have put everything you need to know in a movie with hot men.

Krista said...

Umm, excuse me? Quasi?

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

Ohhhh, Bluebook...LOATHE!
Good LUCK!

Cathy said...

Oh, so that's what an unorganized desk looks like.

I put out an APB on Twitter the other day. I thought maybe those giant Texas bugs had carried you off and dropped you in the ocean or something. Good to know you're still around!

Good luck with law school!

Kristin said...

You've been most missed, but life trumps blog. You're gonna kick law school's arse!

SurferWife said...

Quasi? Say what? We. Need. To. Talk.

Trifecta Gchat. Immed's.

Don't you worry pussy cat. A lot of us have been super busypants.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Ah yes, fond memories of being a One L. You'll get through, I promise. And weirdly, look back at it as "not all that bad." You'll make some good friends along the way too. Congrats on law school and best of luck! I know you'll rock it out. PS Nobody briefs after first year, just remind yourself of that and it will seem much more bearable.

Lady of The Manor said...

Thats an untidy desk? Jeez, l wish you could see the state of my office. Well, actually, l don't. You can't see the floor. Have fun with the reading! :)

The Kelleys said...

: ) You still look RIDIC organized. Still vacuuming twice a day? I aspire...

ps. I'm giving away mascara, and I thought of you.

first time by your blog and sorry you are so busy {that's life I suppose}, from what I've seen so far - love your blog! Can't wait til you can get back to regular posts and I can be a regular reader! :-)

Love that the bluebook is only a few inches from your computer. Did you get the new 19th ed. yet?? As the citation geek I am, I was excited it came out. I bought one the day it was released. Good lord I need a life.
