Still Kicken’

To those still checking this site on a random basis in hopes of finding news of my demise in order to collect the insurance money, Think Again.

Contrary to popular belief, I am still very much alive, well, and dancing.  My latest hiatus was the result of getting my bearings on the new summer job and (mostly) dealing with the agony of moving to another Chicago apartment.  However, I am finally finished with the repetitive ‘rinse and repeat’ process of single-handedly taking all of my belongings and (1)packing them, (2) moving them from the old place to the truck, (3)driving the truck twelve blocks north, (4)moving them from the truck into the new place, (5)and unpacking them into their perfect spot in the new apartment.

But now, sitting in a studio apartment that finally feels like an actual dwelling, I am ready to begin again.  The Fourth of July holiday weekend seems to be a perfect time for new beginnings.  Scary? Yes.  Exciting?  Yes.  Monumental? Yes. Poised to change the world over the next two centures? Yes.

Back Soon

Howdy gang.  

I trust the warm weather and beckoning summer is making your every day better than the last.

On my end, I find myself sitting at my desk in the office/workout room.  It is a spot I have gotten to know well over the past few weeks.  

The end of my first year of law school is painfully within sight.  I can taste the freedom, and the wait is quite agonizing.   Already in the books this semester: Trial team tryouts (success!), Legal Writing, Business Law, and Criminal Law.  About 12.5 hours from now I will begin taking my Contracts exam, and then 48 hours after that I will begin my Constitutional Law exam.  That means by noon on Friday, I will nevermore be plastered with the label of “1L.”  It also means that much celebration will come due shortly thereafter.  

I plan to take full advantage of the beautiful Chicago summer.  That likely includes spending long overdue time catching up with you.

I hope you haven’t forgotten me.
