I told you I'd get busy, huh? :) School DID start back and I'm surviving.
I'm not as busy as I'd expected, but I think that's because things haven't really got going yet.
One thing I MUST say: I LOVE the judge I'm interning with this fall. I am SERIOUSLY so proud to know her. Not only does she have an excellent reputation as a judge, she is a Christian woman who really lives her life the way I hope to live mine someday. AND I love the work I do for her. It's no surprise that I enjoy the appellate work more than the trial work... at least as far as writing for the court goes. Anyway... my time spent at the courthouse on Mondays and Wednesdays is my favorite time of the week.
Classes are pretty good. They're all interesting, at least. It's just that I've got to get used to reading 100 pages a night for class. It's exhausting and I hate that. But no worries. And law review is manageable, I suppose. Not fun in the slightest, but it is mindless work, which is kind of nice after having to use my brain for extended periods of time. As crazy as it sounds, right it now all the stuff I have to do seem to balance each other out. So that's a good sign.
Interviews start next week. I'm interviewing with EIGHTEEN firms in a span of two weeks. It's actually a pretty cool deal: the school arranges for law firms from across the state and even the country to come interview students at the school (for jobs for next summer). Then, if you get the interview and they like you they do "callback" interviews at their firms. I've got about half Dallas firms and half Houston firms. I'm planning on splitting the summer between the two cities. So, while interviews are GREAT and I'm happy I got so many... it's also STRESSFUL! Plus, just practically, I HATE wearing a suit. And I'm gonna have to wear one every day for the next two weeks! I only have five, and I can really only interview in three of them. So I'm gonna be wearing the same three suits. So wish me luck. I really am hoping to get something good out of the interviews.
Anyway... I just wanted to check in. AND I'll post some engagement pictures for my non-facebook and myspace readers. :)
Love you guys.
