Lawyering, Weekend Plans, and My Latest Crush

Bonsoir, mes amies! Yes I can't help but be in a GREAT mood still as the knowledge that I never ever EVER have to take the TX BAR again continues to sink in... ahh it feels good. That being said, I gave approval for my business cards. Isn't that weird?? I have a secretary (aka legal administrative assistant) who comes into my office and asks for me to sign off on my business card design...? Life as a lawyer is new and strange and I haven't quite decided whether I like it. The good news is that my new furniture was installed Friday afternoon so now I can officially move into my digs. Still need to get my diplomas framed and some better lighting but... in time it'll start looking like Carolyn's office and not a law office. Trust moi. :-)

Since I didn't fully celebrate my BAR results, I think I'm going to make a quick trip to Houston this weekend to celebrate with my bestie - Pony! I haven't been to Houston in awhile, and we haven't gotten to spend any quality time together in SO long. I anticipate oodles of chatting, shopping, coffee sipping, and gossiping. It's what we do best. :-)

Oh and as for my latest crush, well it's Lindsay Price from Lipstick Jungle (also from Beverly Hills 90210 - the original). She's half-Korean, GORGEOUS, and yes i'm totally obsessed. I mean hello, can you blame me?

Yes, We Can!!

Wow words cannot express all the emotions I've felt in the past 24 hours, but can I just say, YAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The reality of November 4, 2008 is truly starting to set in, and I can't help but smile. I love love LOVE that I'm lucky enough to witness such an historic election. I can't WAIT for the months and years to come.

In other news (like anything's more important??), my blogging has suffered due to my full-time job, haha. Working takes up A LOT of time - who knew?? It's going well, and I'm lucky to have the opportunities to get super involved this early on in my "career". My partner gives me a great deal of responsibility and some really good work, so I'm thankful. That being said, tomorrow is another big day for some of us Texans, as BAR results are supposed to come out. To say i've been a nervous WRECK of a human being would be the understatement of the year. Several times last week I felt like I was going to either burst into tears or vomit out of anxiety and fear. But a few nights ago I really started to examine my fear, and something kind of clicked. Of COURSE I passed. I worked my bum off studying for that stupid test, and I deserve to pass. And in the very very very small percent chance that I didn't? It's not the end of the world. It's not even the end of MY world. Life. Goes. On. It always does. Plus I had a theory that if Obama won the election, then that would mean I definitely passed the BAR. ;-)

I started my bootcamp last week, and I really like it! It's scary early in the morning (6 a.m. Tues/Thurs), but there's no way I would get myself to the gym after a day of work. Anyway i have it again tomorrow morning which means I need to get to bed ASAP. Wow, i feel old.
