i'm a law slave and i've gone country. i know, it's all so overwhelming. i'll explain. (oh, and i have pictures, too, because i know you all all voyeurs)

things that changed since we last spoke:

i got a macbook pro.  in case you aren't aware, this automatically means i'm cool.  like really cool.  and really popular.  that's what steve job told me when he welcomed me to the super secret society of cool.  it's apparently a "no-pcs-allowed" kind of club.  discriminatory, i know.  oh, and her name is "lola."  "her" being being new macbook.  lola just sounded sassy and fierce.  just go with it.



i got a new car.  my mom got a new car, so that means i did, too.  (thanks, mom.  and of course, dad, who pays for it all.)  sweet gig.  good thing i'm in love with the car because it looks like i'll be driving the thing until the wheels fall off.  that'll probably be around the time i pay off my law school debt.  (i hope and pray.)  oh, and i named her (the car), too.  snowball.  her name is snowball.  well, that's her nickname.

i was really blessed to get an awesome legal internship for the summer.  sure, i'll be working for free and watching my bank account dwindle even further, but hey, it's a great position, and i'm stoked i got it.

i've gone country.  well, not really, but i go out dancing -- two-stepping, to be precise -- at least once a week now.  and i've been wearing cowgirl boots.  for those of you who aren't from texas, particularly houston, houston has its HLSR (houston livestock show and rodeo) at this time every year.  and lemme tell you, it's AH.MAZING.  so freaking fun.  starts off with BBQs and cook-offs, then has concerts every night for two weeks straight.  oh yeah, and there are lots of animals, and barrel races, and bull riding, and bronco riding, and a calf scramble when a hundred calves are set loose and these little country kids all run out into the arena and try to catch them.  (wow, explaining that makes me sound real texan.)  anyways, it's amazing and i love it and around these parts it's like christmas.  honestly, i just like dancing and wearing the boots and cute dresses.

{"don't stop believing"}

i'm not as crazy as i was last semester.  last semester, i don't know how i wasn't locked up.  seriously.  first semester of law school made me crazy.  like britney crazy.  i even cut three inches off my own hair one night at 3am while i was studying for a final.  see?  britney crazy.  anyways, now i'm better; by that i mean, i'm managing things better and the vast abyss of law school that was once so unknown and uncharted territory isn't quite so scary anymore.  in fact, i'm actually semi-normal now and my friends don't think i'm dead.

i will probably be crazy again in about a month.  probably less.  finals start in two months.  studying for finals starts like yesterday.  and i have a appellate brief due in a month as well.  law school finals are like college finals on HGH, steroids, and the machine that the dad used in that movie, "honey, i blew up the kids" all multiplied by a million.  and then multiplied by a million again.  

i still read a lot of your blogs, i just don't comment because i'm normally reading them on my phone and i guess i have fat fingers or something, but it's kind of hard to type out comments on my iphone.  i miss you all, too.  thanks for sticking around even when i'm lamesauce.

hearts.

Too bag you aren't a large old guy who goes by Big Daddy Tex then you could get away with wearing boots in court. That would be awesome.

I felt about a million times more cool when I got a MacBook Pro too, so I know how you feel.

Stacy said...

Welcome to the MacBook Pro club! I LOVE mine. At first I was a little like wtf is this thing!? But once you get used to it, it's SO MUCH better! Yay!

Heather said...

Are you hitting up Wild West like the old days?!

Also, I'd kill for a pair of boots like yours in that picture. Where'd you get them?

Over price Apples, I am so glad the Androids are taking over Apples monopoly.

And here I was just about to give up on you EVER resurfacing. Guess I have me a lawyer in Texas when a need one after all (better specialize in tax law).

I have a Lola, but mine is a 7 year old pug. But she IS fierce. I am also currently considering naming my next child (if and when I ever have another) Lola. I had an aunt by that name and I hear she was the shit back in the 50's :)

tara said...

I remember when we didn't have internet for 3 months after moving. It's pretty much impossible to comment from a phone. I'm glad you're surviving law school and hooray for new cars.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

It sounds like you've got a great balance going on! And who wouldn't rock out to that song! Love it!

OMG. I love your blog. My name's Anna, I'm a stylist and visual merchandiser in LA. I'm 23 years old and moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. I've worked with such designers as Max Azria, Nicole Richie, and my idol Rachel Zoe. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

Hi Meredith! I'm following you via Tara's email thread!

I've been mac since 2006 and I have never looked back. And man! I need to get to the HSLR! Haven't been yet this year!

Going crazy rocks.

One day I might have to get a Mac.

Confessions of a Mother, Lawyer & Crazy Woman said...

Here we go with the numbers, because I am sure you have figured out by now that lawyers like to number things (though, generally, lawyers cannot add ... ok ... so back to numbers):

1) You ROCK those boots. I think you should wear them everyday.
2) Mac Pro. Jealous.
3) CONGRATS on the internship. Nice work!
4) I was reading about the crazy and thinking "... huh, I remember when I cut my hair at 3 AM ... with kitchen scissors ... because it seemed like a good idea ... " WAIT!? She did the same thing!?! Which means ... you know where I am going with this? ... it means that I am sure there is some sort of class action we should get on. Total of six inches of hair is worth at least $3 mil. Easy. Snowball = Paid off.
5) 2nd semester finals are SO. MUCH. BETTER. And by 2nd year, you'll feel like a human again. Promise. At least until the Bar. Then you should hide the scissors again, just in case. But that's not for awhile ...

I wear my boots, all the time, in Singapore. Some of the locals think its awesome when they meet a "real live country girl" from Tennessee ;) One even calls me Boots!

You had me at Macbook Pro. I am finally cool as well. Nobody knows it unless I have my computer with me, so I lug it around a lot, but what the hell? I have better defined arms. Love the country!
