ORIGINALLY POSTED 9/22/10–Things seem to have finally settled down. Yesterday, I took my son to the craft store for items to make a science model. I’ve noticed that the more analytical I am with my brain, the more I want to paint or cook or make a Christmas wreath. It’s like my mind is trying to keep me balanced: analytical and creative. In the store I was mesmerized with the stuff to make football mums, but we came home and made the model instead. Then I threw together a crockpot breakfast casserole (it cooked all night and breakfast was awesome this morning, yum!!) and then read for class. I didn’t get to bed until close to 1 am, which seems to be the standard time for me this semester. Yeah…I’m not too sure how long I’ll be able to keep that up!
Last week I interviewed for an internship at a local firm. I started talking to the receptionist only to find out that she wants to go to law school AND she reads my blog! (Hi, Jessica!!!) That was a cool, yet very odd thing to find out right before going into an interview. Immediately I wondered if I wrote anything that might come back to haunt me in my interview, but then I relaxed and remembered that one of my favorite things about blogging is how honest I get to be. So, I figured that if someone reads my blog they likely get a good sense of who I am and I’m just fine with that.
I spent last weekend working on an abstract and source list for my Law & Lit. paper. Turns out, combining these two disciplines is pretty challenging and I’m kind of fumbling around trying to retain my legal writing and infuse a little liberal arts. I did get to use my ol’ Bluebook which was fun. I used to love doing the citations we did in 1L legal writing, that kind of methodical, detail-oriented work is very relaxing to me. Sometimes you need that kind of auto-pilot work to give the noodle a little breather!
