Merry Christmas to you all! I hope it was full of family, friends, delicious food, bottomless glasses of wine, and smiles.
Its been a little (ok, a lot) quiet over here these last few months. I wish I could say its because I’ve been having a grand old time living life away from my computer, buts its actually the total opposite: I’ve been chained to this stupid machine for weeks on end, memorizing and studying, typing, and […]
what I wish I could spend my sundays doing. these days are spent cooped up in the library, poring over cases and aggravating my already sore wrists with more typing. carpal tunnel is going to own me by the time I graduate. Even though I have a mountain of work and studying to do in […]
