Back In Action

I'm back. I finished my class and have decided not to go to law school. It really came down to me not wanting to be a lawyer. The experience was hugely formative and has helped me gain a lot of confidence in my giant brain. :)

Anyway, a couple things on my mind...
I am distracted beyond reason over this NFL player that got busted for dogfighting. I've purposely not looked at any news stories and have accidentally seen a couple pictures that were quite upsetting. Seriously, who does this? I realize it's a huge business, but how could someone have a soul and treat an animal this way? I don't really have much more to say on this subject because it's too upsetting for me to delve into further, and that really doesn't make for an interesting blog entry.

I bought a scooter (or, as the fiance would say, a death rocket). I've always wanted one since I was a kid, and this law program made me appreciate life a lot more (ever want to work down a list of things you want to do in your lifetime? Law school will get you started because you have no life while there...a red scooter was on my list).

I finally got the final approval from the fiance the night before taking him to the airport for a 10 day conference/trip. I called him at 7 pm that night to let him know I had found one. His response: "I haven't been out of town for 12 hours and you've already managed to make this scooter thing happen!" Yeah, well, when I put my mind to something...

That's the exact model to the right. It's kind of funny, I met a new neighbor today and he asked about the scooter. He said he noticed I'd gotten one because I was bent over working on it (probably the back storage compartment installation. I usually don't read directions and am quite successful, but this thing was impossible...I spent an hour on my own, then 15 minutes following the manual). He was driving with his wife and said out loud, "Niiice". She thought he was referring to me bent over my scooter...but then he explained he was talking about the shiny red bike. Yeah, can't wait to meet her.

I doubt you'll hear this much, but I'm glad the summer law experience taught you about what you don't want. Sometimes that's just as important...and the confidence in your brain seems like a good lesson too! :-)

While I totally can't understand making big purchases quickly (I'm freaking out about buying a piece of furniture less than $200 right now), I think you'll find the gas saved from buying a scooter will feel really good. If you have too many problems setting it up, remember Sam owns a scooter (Aprilia SR50, I think), so if you have real problems setting it up, he could probably help.

Miss all y'all in STL,
