The earth moved. The angels wept. The Polaroids my other coat.

OK...yesterday was freaking insane, so I didn't get a chance to post. Here's some brief updates because I still have to make up three days worth of BusOrgs reading, get ready for Mock Trial pre-trial motion oral arguments tonight, and fill out a bunch of paperwork. And pick up graduation tickets. Sigh.

First, work. I started my new job yesterday and it was awesome. They are so nice and had all my stuff ready for me. I feel like this is going to be such a great opportunity for me and right now at least I feel as though I made a good decision taking this job. More on job stuff later.

Second, school. See above. I am swamped and don't see any way out anytime soon. In mid-May two of my classes will end and that will finally allow me some breathing room, but until then I feel frantic and anxiety ridden. Well, that's how I feel right now anyway.

Third, graduation. I have to pick up tickets today, and someone nominated me to be graduation speaker and I've apparently gotten more than one vote. What would be funny is if the one person most critical of the entire law school experience was the graduation speaker. What would be even funnier would be how many Law Students (notice the capital letters) would be SO OFFENDED by the choice of me. Heh.

Fourth, boys. What the f*ck is wrong with men? Here's the thing...the one thing that indicates most readily that you are NOT the least bit interested in me is to say "I will call you on Monday night at 6pm" or some other equally narrow statement of intent, and then not do it. I fully understand people are busy. People have obligations. But, here's the thing. *I* am busy. *I* have obligations. And yet, I find that at least 20 times during every day, while I'm driving, or between classes, or whenever, I have at least two or three minutes where, at the very least, I can call someone I am supposed to call if only to say "I am so busy today, why don't I just give you call sometime later this week when things slow down?" Common courtesy people, common courtesy. I don't know why, but this is my #1, ultimate, top-of-the-list, pet peeve. I feel like the inability to follow through on little things is an indicator of what's to come when I need someone to be able to follow through on big things. Harsh? Yes. Too bad.

Fifth, work. I love my new job.

Sixth, blogging. I anticipate the next two days being insane, and Friday I have to work all day, so I'll likely be around but probably won't post anything too significant until Saturday...unless I get stood up tonight, and then I'll probably be back again to harp some more on Point #4.

Seventh, internet. My wireless at home is down and I have no freaking idea why or how to fix it. So, I don't know what to do about that, but I don't think I have time to deal with it until this weekend...oh well.
