The Second Score Is In: Sadly

In Orem was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, the CA weeping for his LSAT score, and would not be comforted, because it was lower.

Yes, I got my email from LSAC on Monday (12/29) my score actually dropped a point this time around. "Oh well." I'm not the first person to use the phrase and certainly not the last.

All the way back to Halloween

Okay, okay, I know. I should have posted these like two months ago, but I'm not very good about being consistent in my blogging. Anyway, I give you Princess Toadstool and Luigi.

MY RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it was a sad day. On Tuesday, November 25, Christy and I were in the SLC airport, sifting through law school gibberish and waiting to board our SouthWest flight heading up to Seattle. It was a run of the mill experience up to the moment we sat down on the plane . . .

For some reason, I reached my hand into the back seat pocket of the deal in front of me, and when I pulled my hand out, my wedding ring was gone!~ That's right, gone. My best bet is that I lost it in the bathroom of the SLC airport. I know, rough. But after many phone calls and even a few emails, we haven't heard anything from our pals in the lost and found department. So it looks like it's time to dip into Maria's college fund and bust out a new one. I appreciate your condolences on my behalf. (And no, Jon, Christy did not rebuke me for my misfortune!)

Me & Our Daughter!

When my wife pretends to be mad at me she will say something like, "Me and our daughter are going over there!" You're all aware of this, but I figured that I would put up our ultrasound shots of our daughter for posterity or something. Enjoy.  [Since removed for privacy considerations]

(By the way, so far as I know, this is not the spawn of Jabnal.)

It's all over!! It's all over!!

That's right, kids. After hours, months, and years of toil, my undergraduate career is finally over.

I know, it's hard to believe. After my last final (a required Bio class), I was seriously tempted to jump up on one of the desks in the Testing Center's music room, do a victory dance and shout, "It's all over! It's all over! Now enjoy the rest of your schooling!!" Unfortunately, with so many kids taking exams, there just wasn't any room to realize this urge.

Next, as if finishing up the old bs (degree) weren't enough, yesterday I finished applying to the 23rd law school. Phew. It's nice to have that off of my chest. Let's just say I'm tired. For your viewing pleasure, here's the full list, in alphabetical order, that I applied to. Presumably one or more will accept me:

George Washington
Washington U
Washington & Lee
William & Mary
