Just Married

We're home and married! The wedding was perfect, the honeymoon was fantastic. We couldn't be happier. More pictures to come...

See You On The Flip Side

Tonight all the relatives come into town and the wedding craziness begins - and won't end until we finally take off for the honeymoon. It's nice to finally have all the planning over and done with. All that's left is the final summit push to the big event on Sunday!

The Right To Vote

This news is nothing less than awesome. I heard first thing this morning from my friend in Kuwait who is just ecstatic. I'm so happy that she and every woman in her country now have this voice in their political system. Here's hoping that this is just one step of many.

I Hardly Knew Thee

Finally, finally...This is my last post talking about my "old finals from the coma semester" because - I just took my last one! I never have to read another word written by Dante ever, ever again!

Goodbye Fall Semester of 2004!

Catching Up

Well, final grades are finally in and for those of you playing along at home I did indeed pass all of my classes. So that graduation thing wasn't a scam after all. I do have some things to finish up over the summer but it's all under control.

I've been loving the new iPod. I'm not much of a "music person" but I really like what I like. I got iPodder but have yet to find any great podcasts (other than Evan's, of course) Does anyone have any favorite podcasts to suggest?

In law school news, the school put up some orientation information on the website. There is, apparently, required summer reading to come and our first legal writing assignment will be given on the first day of orientation and due on the second. Also our schedules and book lists will be given on that day, and we are to purchase our books at that same time. Of course, they note, financial aid will not be available until the following Monday so we are to be prepared with that spare cash we will have after our moves. How much do law school books cost? I'm guessing it's going to be $400-$500 for the first semester. For those of you in the know - Am I close?

Two weeks from today I'll be married. How weird is that?

I'm 28 today. Is that old? I can't tell.

I'm using my brand new iPod for the first time today! It was a graduation present. And it's pink!

Today I'm still waiting on my final grades. Did I really graduate? I'm not good at the waiting.

I don't know what it means, but graduating on 05-05-05 is pretty cool, I think!

Yay, graduation! Bring it!

What can I say that won't sound completely cheesey?

I'm getting really excited about graduation tomorrow. Up until now I've really just been tired. This has been a very trying semester. Learning how to deal with my exciting new diabetes, studying for and taking my finals from fall semester, taking my regular classes, getting law school decisions and picking one to attend, planning a wedding and dealing with the surprising amount of drama that has gone along with it - All in one neat four month package.

I've learned a lot in college. I've enjoyed my major and as much as I complain about it I'm glad I attended CU, if only for the opportunity to major in exactly what I wanted to. During these last four months I've learned a lot about myself and how much I can handle. I've had to question my priorities, and even my commitment to this whole law school thing.

I questioned whether I can (or even want to) handle the stress of law school with my new set of circumstances. My ultimate answer is yes, I think so. Maybe I'll approach the whole thing differently than I would have, but I believe that I can "do law school" - and, perhaps more importantly, that I still want to and there's nothing else I would rather do next.

Something Old, Something New

Last night J and I watched the old BBC Hitchhiker's Guide mini-series and then immediately went to the new movie. Good times! I would watch the new version again just for the dolphin song.
