So I can't study at the library.  I'm not sure why this is, but it's true.  In any case, this means that I've been studying at coffee shops A LOT lately.  

Not only do I get my studying done, but my music list grows as well.

P.S. Yesterday was World AIDS Day.  At OSU, we used to host the Red Party in late April in honor of AIDS awareness.  It was always an amazing event.  For an amazing article on what AIDS is and what science is working on right now with AIDS check out this awesome article (that happens to be written by one of my best friends):

Serendipitously ...

– you don’t reach Serendib by plotting a course for it. You have to set out in good faith for elsewhere and lose your bearings … serendipitously.

Saturdays (O-H-I-O style)

After studying all day/night yesterday, nothing beats a day of football.  

Tied.  In the third.

Hang on Sloopy.

Once Again...

... Time got away from me.

I'm not good with routinely blogging.  I'm trying to get better.

I pinky promise.

However, I may not be able to fulfill that promise until finals are done.

In law school, the only grade you have for an entire semester is your final exam.

It's terrifying.

It's beyond terrifying.

So from now until mid-December, I have resigned myself to the fact that my desk is going to be in a constant state of messiness:


And that I'm going to constantly feel like this:


And because of these resignations, I have bought myself flowers and placed them in a beer bottle turned flower vase, which I find absolutely lovely.

I have also discovered that running everyday is absolutely wonderful.  In my book, no better stress relief exists besides the rhythmic beat of sneakers hitting the pavement.

And now, I think I'm going to log off, shut down, and go run! :)  
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

Happiness is ...

Dance till the stars come down from the rafters
Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop.
- W.H. Auden

Happiness is ... 

Blowing up balloons and writing your favorite quotes on them.

The past few weeks in pictures:

Wow, time really got away from me.  These past few weeks have been an absolute amazing start to Fall. I drank pumpkin beer and visited with both my parents and my best friend from home!  I also got some fun (and comfy!) sweaters for the upcoming cold weather.  I am all set for Fall ... now, it just needs to stop being 80 (not that I'm complaining, I know those negative degrees are only a few months away and then I'll be wishing for this weather)

:)  Happy Fall!
