I can’t believe I didn’t post on Squirrel Appreciation Day! Law school has certainly kept me busy! I blog so infrequently that each time I log in, wordpress is asking to update to a new version.
Now, time for the rundown of what’s happened in the last month and a half. First, I did indeed finish my finals, including my chicken paper. If you ever are curious about the legal issues that surround urban chicken ownership, you should give it a read. Avian flu? Nuisances? Zoning regulations? Commerce Clause? Why yes! They’re all in there! I submitted it to an animal law journal’s contest. I don’t have any expectations that it will win, but it is somewhat neat to say I’ve submitted an article for a journal.
After finishing finals, Zach and I left to visit family in Phoenix and Tucson. Then it was off to Florida to visit his grandparents. Then back to Seattle to see my parents. While my parents were here, we did the standard touristy stuff. Here’s a picture my parents took of Seattle from the ferry to Bainbridge Island, followed by my slightly enhanced version:
Once my parents left, school started up again. I’m taking Landlord and Tenant Law, Corporation and Partnership Tax, Evidence, a weekly externship class, and a 15hr/wk judicial externship. Life is definitely busy; however, I appreciate weekends wayyy more now. I’ve decided that weekends are for sleeping, cooking, watching star trek, and playing video games, along with the necessary law school reading assignment. As busy as my weeks are, I’d much rather get all my work done then so that I can destress for two days. So far it’s working.
I’ve also decided to explore the world of the crock pot. Last year I had visions of crock pot dinners each night, yet I rarely followed through. This year is going to be different, starting with tonight. I’m making this for dinner, along with mashed potatoes and peas. Ok, yes, the mashed potatoes are going to be from scratch. BUT! I’m making them ahead of time and then baking them when I get home. I just need to ease into this one pot dinner thing. Slowly. By using three pots. I’m sure Zach will appreciate fewer dishes.
Alright, time to read some cases on the implied warranty of habitability! Yeah!
