I wish I had more to report for the last two days. My new Thursday schedule has me working from 9-5. It's nice to be able to put in a full day at the office (up until now I had been putting in 4-5 hours at a time). I had a great call with a client whose hearing is next Tuesday. I try to not get too emotionally attached to my clients, but I can't help it sometimes. This is a great guy who truly got screwed and deserves to win. The only other highlight of my day was watching the So You Think You Can Dance. I did very little hoping that I could quickly unwind and get to bed early. Why? I had big plans for that night/the next morning. Confession:
I, Katie Hilen, love Harry Potter and got up to go to the 3AM Imax 3-D showing of the final movie. I can't believe that the series is over! I started reading the books 13 years ago (when I was 13) and have been re-reading them for the last decade. I don't have a wand or cape, but I would consider myself a HP fan.
The movie was fantastic, but looking back I think I probably could have waited on gotten a full night's sleep. The next day was ROUGH. The movie got out around 5:30AM, so I went to Starbucks to study for class instead of driving all the way home. I found myself nodding off and thought that was pretty embarrassing, so I went and slept for 30 min in the law school parking lot.
Fortunately, class discussion was fairly lively, so I didn't struggle too badly to stay awake. I did, however, cause a major disruption when I realized that the first summer session grades had been posted. I was so pleased with my grade in secured transactions, that I nudged my neighbor. I must have been less then subtle about it, because my professor stopped the class... Whoops! Sorry BroHo! I did even better in Criminal Procedure, but I was more proud of Secured Transactions. I had to work REALLY damn hard to learn the material. I have an aversion to all things contract related after my run in with Rusch 1L year, so it is a miracle I was able to overcome!
My time at the office was spent preparing for Tuesday's hearing by running through the questions I had prepared with my client and drafting a closing argument. After that, I was done. I knew I wasn't going to have enough energy to cook, so I didn't even bother trying. I stopped at Papa Murphy's on the way home and enjoyed some pepperoni and an early bed time. For those keeping track, yes that was three days in a row now without exercise... I'm thinking of hanging bikini's around the house to remind myself just how close I am to the sandy shores of Maui.
