I sound like...

... a broken record. I'm STILL tired. I took a two-hour nap today and am STILL sleepy!
BUT, I won't bore anyone with my incessant whining. It's not attractive.

I had my first Dallas callback interview yesterday. They put me up in the Westin City Center hotel downtown, and it was REALLY nice! I slept like a log. I absolutely loved the firm. It's a large national firm with a small Dallas office. So you get the best of both worlds: the salary and resources of a large firm with a small firm, relaxed atmosphere. The bad news: they have a small summer program, so my chances are slim. Other problem, out of, I think, six summer associates last summer, they only extended full-time offers to two of them. That's not a great statistic for me to hang my hat on. I'm worried that if I were to forego working at another Dallas firm and work at this firm, I'd really kick myself if I didn't get an offer at the end of next summer. PLUS, they have ZERO women partners. Which also scares me a little. Anyway, I'm just kind of apprehensive. But I have three more Dallas callbacks, so I'm hoping I will just fall in love with one of the firms and that will make my decision easy.

Other news... ? I'm so boring right now it's ridiculous. I picked up my veil at David's Bridal yesterday! It's very simple and pretty. And I can't WAIT to wear it! Micah pointed out tonight that the wedding is less than three months away! He asked me if I'm getting cold feet. But I'm so ready. I've been ready for a long time. I feel incredibly lucky to have found the love of my life so young. I get to spend the rest of my life with him, and I just don't know how in the world I deserve that. Some people don't find the right one until much later in their lives, and some never find the right one at all. That I get Micah from now until we're old and gray is just amazing. God has blessed me beyond belief. I think about that a lot. It's not that I haven't gone through difficult times in my life... I completely have. But I can look back on every difficult moment and see the Lord leading me through it... carrying me at times. I have been protected and provided for every step of the way. I hope no one looks at my life and calls me lucky. Or even a hard worker. Any good in my life has been ordained by God, and I am undeserving of it. Just something to think about. :)
