Yes, I'm still here.

I'm sure you all thought I was just hibernating.  It's not that...I was actually more busy than I've been in a long time.   Dad here for Thanksgiving, starting new internship, choir performance, Mom here for Christmas...busy busy busy.

I definitely had a great time with each parent during their visits.  The new internship is fine, but I'm now certain I don't want to work in asbestos litigation.  At least everyone likes me and I'm learning some new stuff, so it'll be fine, but I'll be glad to be done in February.  And the choir performance went really well, I was pleased with that.

I know, I could go into more detail on all that, but it's just not in me today.

Oh!  My dad gave me a Wii Fit for Christmas, that thing is SO fun!  Anyone with a Wii needs to get it.  Hell, just get a Wii and then get the Wii Fit too!

It seems this is turning into a broken thought process post...that wasn't really my intent, I guess it's just how my brain is working today.

Oh goodness, my entire Corporations class is pretty upset with how the final went.  So not only did we all have to teach ourselves everything because he was useless, but then we get to the final and he went and tested us, in DETAIL, on stuff he glazed over in about a day.  I have never been so frustrated in an exam...not one that I'd studied that hard for, at least.  So we're petitioning to the dean.  One or two students complaining is one thing...everyone (or at least almost everyone) in the class is another.  I'm not sure what she'll do in response, but she'll have to do something.

The other classes ended fine.  I had to pull an all-nighter to get a paper done, but that's how law school goes sometimes.

Let's see, what did I write in my last post that you all might need updates on?

Oh, yeah, so my landlord's uncle bailed out again.  He slept here one other night after that first night, and then my landlord told me he changed his mind yet again.  I don't really know what the deal is, I sensed that it's all tangled up in a bunch of family drama so I didn't want to pry.  So I'm roommateless again, but my landlord and I are doing what we can to get someone in here.  I'm just glad I still only have to pay half the rent, especially since it's not exactly my fault the room is still empty at this point.

Oh, and the whole Mock Trial thing died.  One of the people in our team, who we entrusted to do something very important relating to figuring out if funding would be possible before the sign up deadline, totally dropped the ball.  I knew I should have just done it myself, being PAD treasurer and all, but I was busy at that time so I was glad he volunteered.  Sucks...but oh well.

I thought about going to the grocery store today, but it's been snowing all day.  Not hard enough to actually prevent me from going, and the roads are plowed so if I really needed to go I could.  But it's enough to deter me right now since I have food, I just wanted to pick up a couple things.  So instead...I am going to sit here in my pajamas, watch TV, and play with my Wii Fit.

On that note...I'm going to wrap this up.  Hopefully now that the holidays are over I can get back into a regular posting routine again.  =)

Everyone seems to be getting the Wii fit. Is it really all it's cracked up to be?

Bridgete said...

Yes! It's so much fun! Seriously, I love it. I've used it every day for a week.

Auntie Dani said...

OK, here's MY outline (LOL!):
*that's cool that both your parents got to see you in Boston! I hope they enjoyed the city snow!
*I've been wanting a Wii Fit for a while. I'm glad to hear,from someone I know, how awesome it is! Is it mainly yoga?
*Boo to bad professors. 'Nuff said.
*Boo to flaky roommates. Been there. Done that.
*BIG BOO to death of Mock Trial. Sad panda!

PS: I'm going to see Kelley tonight! We will be showing my fiancee the goodness and AWESOMENESS that is Shakespeare Abridged (which her hubby bought on DVD for Christmas!). Wish you could be here! We miss you!

Jenn said...

Another check in the box for Wii Fit. My SIL has it too but doesn't use it all the time. Good to hear you are and really enjoy it. I'm asking Matt for that for my b'day so I can supplement the treadmill and outdoor walking (by then) with something other than my yoga vids. Can you tell I'm going to be the Health version of The Soup Nazi this year? lol!

Hope we can catch up again soon, sorry to hear of so much insanity but good luck with the petition for sure, that is just not right.

Bridgete said...

@Dani - Yay for outlines!
* Dad missed the snow, Mom enjoyed it.
*Actually only a small portion of the Wii Fit is yoga. Most of it is aerobic games and games to improve your sense of balance. A little strength training too.
*And boo...boooooo...and BIG booooo!
I miss you guys too! It's too late to tell you to give Kelley a hug for me...but I'm sure you'll see her again before I do, so keep that in mind. On that note...*hug*

Bridgete said...

@Jenn - OMG you'll have so much fun when you get the Wii Fit. =) And you can tell it that you're doing yoga and treadmill stuff outside of the Wii Fit activities, and it'll add that to your workout time and estimate how many calories you burned based on how strenuous the activity was.

KC McAuley said...

Hi sweetie. I miss you already. AND the Wii Fit. I'm just going to have to figure out how to get one.

I need to get back to my own blog as well. You've inspired me.

Love you!

ginger said...

i'm'd the petition go? do you have a roommate yet?

Bridgete said...

I do have a roommate. The petition is...doing something. The dean wants to meet with the class. Or, whoever shows up. It'll be after our internships are done, because not everyone stays in Boston like I do, so we're kind of all over the place.

I'll post again soon. I need to talk about how I've been in court, watching a real trial, all week!
