Explanation of my Absence

My apologies for the recent lack of ginger snaps. Vacation was great, but then I had to get right back into work, which has been going great but really busy, and now there are tons of preparations to make for moving in just under a week and a half.

One of the biggest things that has happened is that I purchased most of my law school textbooks. Buying what I could used, and compensating for the cheapest price between Amazon or, I have already spent over $770.00, and I still have 3 books to purchase once I get to the school. On Amazon, one of those books alone was $178.00, and I would have gone ahead and gotten it if it wasn't out of stock. Conceivably, this expense could cost me upwards of $1,000. Commence seizure.

Work has been going really well. I've been able to do some really cool things lately, including drafting my first contract. I also got to sit in on my parent's estate planning consultation this morning, which was really cool to see. It was great to listen in on the questions that were asked, and to see how the meeting was handled when dealing with such sensitive material. All in all, this summer has been a really great learning experience for me, and I am sure that it will do nothing but help me when law school actually starts.

It is getting really close to that time to make the big move, and I am both nervous and excited about it. More excited than nervous. I've been in contact with my future roomie, and she seems really sweet. Apparently, she likes to color coordinate things according to our conversation about what we will be bringing to the apartment, and from that I think we will get along just fine.

Anyways, I know it isn't exactly the greatest excuse, but there has been so much going on that I haven't had much time to sit down and write these kinds of posts up. Rest assured there will be more information on the move and starting law school in the near future. I'll be moving to Des Moines on August 15th, so expect more interesting tid bits from my life as that date nears.

  1. Yeah... theoretically, my textbooks for just the first semester are supposed to run me $800. Second-year students seem to be advising us not to bother with them, but we do need to get lots of fancy schmancy doctor equipment that is, in fact, necessary and will run me $300-500. Woohoo!

    Also, it took me far longer than I'd like to admit to figure out who the mysterious "Ginger" was that commented on my post the other day... heh.
