If you're as outspoken as you are in class, I imagine not a single person will even notice you're there.

So, I signed a lease today. An amazing apartment in the 150's a couple of streets away from the subway. It has laundry in the basement, a dishwasher, rent I can (kinda) afford, and plenty of closet space. Now I just need to drive the 3000 miles to move there with all of my stuff. In August.

And yes, I am buying an A/C unit the first day I get there.

Yeah, kind of a sobering email, isn't it?

Congrats on the apartment. Moving 3K sounds like quite the adventure.

An adventure, sure, but I wish it were a bit less of a hassle. Trying to get a lease agreement back over those 3k miles is apparently impossible for FedEx to accomplish. Eight hours late and counting.

Dang, I just got the Kindle book last week. It's my subway reading for the month.

BTW, any idea when we find out our schedules? I have a minimal teaching gig (3 to 6 hours per week for 4 weeks, depending on my availability) plus I have to coordinate daycare and whatnot.... Getting antsy to pin things down.

It's called "Whose Monet?", and it's the "required" reading assignment for Orientation. It's an intro to the American legal system, using a dispute over a stolen Monet painting to illustrate. It's actually rather well-written. I think they list it somewhere in the admitted student website....

I guess I need to read the website more often.

I would love to have the copy Jen if the offer is still open.

One of the essay questions on my 1st year property exam was based COMPLETELY and ENTIRELY off of Whose Monet. The only difference being that instead of a "stolen" painting, it was a "stolen" case of wine.


Thanks for the tip!
