RL. It's a killer. It really, really is. Between having some internetses problems and RL in general, well, you know the drill. Life does, however, finally seem like it's giving me a bit of a break. ♥

The Good
Finished my first year of law school. Barely survived, but I DID manage to finish it. Had a wonderful birthday today and ♥ to the well-wishes. *snugs* Am also going to England in a few months. Yes, I got accepted to the study abroad programme in the spring. OMGSOEXCITED!!

In other news? I've pretty much decided what I want to do with my law career. I want to work in the government in some capacity. I'm doing a federal clerkship right now and I've never been happier. It's a lot of work, but the work I'm doing is fascinating and I love it beyond words. I'm seriously considering going into the JAG Corps (USAF). So we'll see. the thought of OCS scares the shit out of me.

The Bad
Issues with school. I had... well, I had a good semester. But it, apparently, wasn't good enough for school. No, I'm not getting kicked out or anything -- but they are taking my scholarship. Which, well, sucks. No probation, no nothing. ;_; we're talking to school sometime this week to find out WTF is going on.

The Ugly
Suppose the stuff about school can go under the ugly category. But, instead, I'm putting the Rainbow People there. Seriously. Look them up and see what I've been dealing with for the past several weeks. X_x


I hope you all have been doing well. I'm sorry I haven't been the greatest LJ friend in the world lately. Really, I rather suck. *sigh* But know I love you all to itty bitty pieces -- even if I'm fairly silent over here right now.

And I swear I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing. I know I have some unfinished fics, one of which has been sitting a year. *cries* But really, it's coming.

That's exactly where they were again this year. Only this was the national convention. Our count from the LEOs was about 10,000 of them.

The good is good, the bad sucks. Um, how do people continue without scholarships?

I hope there are only sparkly rainbows for your birthday.

YAY at the finished year.

WTF NO at the scholarship.

*sends lots of virtual chocolate and a sprinkling of confetti* I hope you can get it reinstated, even on a probational basis.

Don't worry about the rest of us here on LJ--I'm sure we'll all still be here when RL isn't eating you alive. I've been through periods like that, too--I understand.

Happy Biiiiiirthday. <3

I'm so happy you're going to London! Where will you be based? Be sure to check out the used book market under Waterloo bridge. It's one of my fav places on Earth!

If you have any questions about JAG let me know. My soon-to-be father-in-law was in JAG for a while. I can pass any questions on to him.

(And if you can make it to my wedding reception in Cleveland the day after Thanksgiving, you can ask him yourself!)

YAY GOVERNMENT WORK! See you there. Well, not in the JAG corps; I don't really feel like doing wills. Nonetheless: YAY GOVERNMENT WORK!
