To all my fellow Bar Exam takers who will be joining me in hell on Tuesday and Wednesday, good luck!!!
Graduation was yesterday. My wife, Kristyna, was able to hood me, because she’s an alum (J.D. ’00). I can’t believe it’s over. Well, I do have to wait for my final grades to come in! How weird is that? But barring some catastrophe, I’m done. At least for a week. Next week this time, I’ll be sitting in a Bar/Bri lecture, trying to prepare myself for the Illinois Bar Exam.
Well, I never really went away… but my posting frequency dropped off significantly. Last semester was crazy busy for me, with both work and school. So, even though I still had many things to say (I _always_ have many things to say) I never had the time to write them up and post.
This semester is a little different. I’m still busy, but a little less so. Many of my work projects have wrapped up, and I’m only taking two classes. But it’s also my last semester, so I’ll be starting the job search (maybe), I have my note due for law review, and I got a fellowship which will take up some time as well. You know, sleep is for suckers.
Anyway, I will be making some time to write on the old blog. I’ve tasted many cheeses, I want to write some about law school in hopes that something might be useful to other students or potential students, and just spout off in general.
Besides, I’m happier when I’m writing, even if no one is reading. 😉
Thank you for the frigid blast of arctic air. We do not mean to seem ungrateful, but we find the sub-zero temperatures are not to our liking. With so many wonderful things to export, perhaps next year you might consider sending down national health care?
Your Neighbor to the South
Molly Ivins passed away after battling cancer. Like many people, my first exposure to Ivins was with Bushwhacked which is a great book. I’d highly recommend checking out it and some of her others, as well. She had a great heart and great humor.
There was also a club, called Second Story which was pretty much where all the indie bands played (they still do, from what I’ve seen). Well, Second Story is having a 25th Anniversary extravaganza this weekend, and Arson Garden will be playing their one (and probably only) reunion show!!
Figures, I can’t go. _Sigh._ But if you are anywhere near Bloomington, Indiana this Friday night and you don’t check them out, you are really missing out on a great opportunity to see a phenomenal group of musicians.
And thanks to James Combs, Arson Garden’s lead guitarist/songwriter for the hat-tip on the show! He’s a great solo act as well, and I highly recommend you check out his site, too.
Coming off of a blogging conference, I’ve made a few changes around here. Most are behind the scenes (I’ve modularized my templates and stylesheets) and you shouldn’t notice them unless I’ve screwed something up.
The new features you might actually notice are:
- A FeedBurner Feed
- E-Mail Subscription (via FeedBurner/FeedBlitz)
- Updated Blogrolls
If you notice something out of whack, please drop me a note and let me know.
