After a week of near inactivity, it was time to step it up. So I did. I was up and at the gym at 4:30 this morning climbing the rotating stair machine. I set the machine for 45 minutes, but at 5 minutes in I was ready to be done. I am a morning person, but that was just too early. Fortunately I remembered that I can watch Netflix on my phone, so I set it up to watch an episode of Lost. The remaining 40 minutes flew by! Thank you Richard Alpert for being such a fantastic distraction. (If you are not familiar with Richard Alpert, google him. He's my next husband).
In addition to class, I had a two important tasks to accomplish today. The first was VERY sad/ heart breaking/ disappointing/ etc. I went to the DMV and replaced my California drivers license with one from WA. It's not that living in WA is a total tragedy. Charlie and I are happy to be closer to family and friends. But it feels like palm trees and jogs on the beach are becoming nothing more than a distant memory of a better time. Time to start thinking of WA as my permanent home and planning mini-vacas to the Golden State.
The second task was to judge the 1L oral advocacy competition. Although it required yet another late night spent at the law school, I really enjoyed the experience. The 1Ls came really prepared and presented strong arguments. I hope some of the feedback I was able to provide will prove to be as valuable as the constructive criticism I received my first year as a competitor.
Charlie heads to Seattle for a conference in the morning, so I've got a bit to do to get him ready to go. Off to it!
