New Day, New President.

Wow. I seriously feel like Bush has been President my entire life. Or at least, all the majorly important years. College, first kiss, first boyfriend, first time living away from home, first time visiting Europe, grad school - all during the Bush administration. And now, today, is the first day of my adult life with someone new.

I can't say I expect ridiculous amounts of change - Obama is certainly an intelligent man, but there's only so much one man can do, no matter how much power he has. But I'm a wee bit excited, honestly. And hopeful. So I send out a little prayer for Obama, in hopes that he stays strong in the coming years.

Bar Studying Commences.


So, have I mentioned I have (what seems to me) a GINORMOUS box sitting in my living room crammed to the brim with books that I have to fully read within the next 29 days. And then, I have a week to self-study, and THEN...


(cue dramatic horror music: *dum dum DUM*)

So, naturally, I'm freaking out.

Not a LOT, but the butterflies are definitely there.


Fortunately, I've got Collin to entertain me. And give me a hug when I need some comfort. Having a sweet boyfriend rocks.

So, uh, it's a new year.

Last year was many ways. Breakup, graduation, financial issues (which have overlapped into 2009 - I need to find a freaking job!)...but it was also great. I got to spend a couple months with my aunt and cousin, who I completely adore more NOW than I did back in the day, I met an amazing boy I'm now dating (uh huh, I said "boy", Collin), I got to move back to Minneapolis (which got rid of my depression at being in Michigan), I passed the MPRE (and I'm taking the Minnesota bar in less than 2 months), and I have an apartment! And people that love me, spread out all over the world.

So I'm pretty lucky.

And 2009? Will be SO much better than 2008. It's a fact, people.
