I'm gunning Arrested Development. It's great. I'm also reading a chicklit book that IAFG noted I will probably accidentally start highlighting and outlining.


I never watched sex and the city...planning on watching from the beginning

And seriously, to go through my first semester of law school with no sex whatsoever sucked. And since I slowly quit running, I carried the stress with me until the very end. Next semester I have to at least stay with a steady running routine or I fear I'll lose my mind.


if it makes u feel any better, i didn't get any until my next to last exam. It was a long semester, but i finished strong! :wink:

2 minutes isn't strong


LOL.

I've discovered that my parents have decided to save energy by turning down the heat. I wouldn't have expected to be colder in Massachusetts than in Chicago.

Burberry London is where it's at, at least for winter. L'eau D'Issey for all other seasons.

Obviously you're not the only one having a hard time focusing on school.

You can envy me and my buddy Yeazell, cuz me and him are getting really tight right now.

Pretty sure my typical day ends with a broken brain about 3, 3:30, and then there is a resurgence of activity around 6-7pm after dinner.
