Write brief Don’t have anxiety attack during oral argument Get summer job Pass exams Move Be free of the stress of these things
I am so screwed.
I have 61 hours to make this brief happen. Plus a little bit of sleeping, and going to at least 2 of my 3 classes on Monday.
Shakesville: President Obama's Message to Planned... →
I am glad Obama finally has spoken up on this issue. But I also had many of the same issues that Melissa McEwan had when listening to this speech. Not talking about abortion while defending Planned Parenthood, despite that the fight is not just about services other than abortion, it is about abortion services which countless women will need at some point in their lives. But the thing that...

Great article, and I hate everything. In related news (related to me hyperbolically hating everything, that is, and also issues of privileged people having more than their share of the voice in law and public opinion), we’re starting on the subject of Rape today in criminal law, and while I realize this is a crude and inadequate equivalency, I have realized that basically if I did the same...
Is it May yet?
I want it to be May. I want this semester to be over. By mid-May, it will be. By mid-May, I will have a summer job lined up (because that is my #1 focus after this brief is turned in). By mid-May, I will no longer have to decide between sleeping alone in my own bed and waking up at Mike’s, or asking Mike to come over which he would, but then we’d both feel guilty about leaving...
I keep seeing all these posts about Draw Something, and it looks awesome. So cenizasyarena, I’m testing it out on you. Of course, I’m not sure if the people it showed me as options to play with actually already have it or if it is just going to send you a thing inviting you to download it, so if the latter is the case, sorry. Anyone else play this game? Clearly I hate this brief I...

Sending this to a friend who was saying how the Trayvon Martin case could have just been a guy that was crazy, but was more likely a guy who was racist (crazy racist?), and think it’s a good read for anyone.

I am stressed out about school and my career and stuff right now. It’ll all work out fine, I know, but my anxiety is high right now. But I’m so happy waking up at Mike’s 5+ days of the week, and having his bright blue eyes be one of the first things I see, and having Indie see that I’m awake and jump up to cuddle and try to lick my face even though I won’t let him. ...
Oh, also, I did eventually tell my mother the truth about how long we had been seeing each other, and that I had not been up front about it because I was nervous about how she would take the age difference. Always come out honest in the end.
cenizasyarena: giraffesgiraffes replied to your post: Remember the older guy I wrote about a while ago? I vote old guy. Chemistry over age any day. I love my older guy. Even my mother thinks we have 20 years before the age difference is a problem, and I think ours is more years than yours. Tee-hee. Thanks! We talked for a bit on FB yesterday and today he called just to say hi, so that’s a good...
Someone is moving out of a one bedroom in my apartment complex, and it will be ready for us to move in about a week after my final exams are done. How perfect is that?
Since I’m so convinced I’d be excellent at advice, I’ll start with myself. Well, no, this story starts with me giving excellent advice to Gwen, which I now am modifying to apply to myself. I told Gwen that choosing to be monogamous with this dude that is super nice and awesome and perfect for her is JUST choosing to be monogamous with him, and is IN NO WAY choosing to settle...
I want to start an advice column. I’ve been a little obsessed with them lately, not in an “I’m going to read this and it will solve my life” way, but in a “wow, these problems are really interesting (or not) and this advice is all heartfelt and much of it is obvious and some of it is wise and SO MUCH OF IT IS SO AWFUL, JUDGY, AND/OR MISGUIDED” way. For...

The bird store will take the birds back.
But I’ll miss them! They’re so cute. (Disclaimer: they are being quiet and adorably snoozing right now, not talking loudly and constantly like they usually do.) I know I’d be thinking of getting rid of them anyway because of the noise in this studio apartment, but if it weren’t for Mike and Indie I don’t know if I could go through with it. We could shop around for...
I know I need to get rid of my birds
But I worry about them, and even though they annoy the crap out of me, I care about them and I’m ambivalent about having to let them go. Could we keep them in the bedroom and prevent them from pooping on the bed? Could Indie be trained to not try to eat them once he stops being freaked out about them flying around inside? Probably not. :(
