|One Last Time...
It has come that time of year for my resolutions post, however I have come to a decision.
I am leaving LiveJournal.
Considering I have made 10 entries all year, including this year, and that most people have left it, I have decided to make this my last entry in my livejournal.
First off though to recap last year, kinda did 1 and 2 is as always a failure. So my final total is 8-10-3.
No one can accuse me of being a man of few words but I will attempt to be brief.
In the 5 years since I started this thing it has been an outlet for me, a place to post results to stupid online quizzes, and a place where I have made and lost friends. I can only hope that somehow and someway those that I lost will read this.
Being on this website has been an interesting experiance to say the least. When I started it I was a college freshman who hated his boss at a job at a bowling alley, as I leave it I am a second year law student who doesn't have a formal job but instead is attempting to break into the political world. One hell of a dicotimy if I may say so myself.
These past 5 years have been eventful in terms of both my online and real life. For a brief period of time my online life dominated, but I have since moved on from that and that moving on cost me friends from around the country. However in life one must accept that change happens.
I believe that if 5 years ago I could see what I would become I would be partially amazed, and partially vindicated. Why you ask, because I am actually doing what I dreamed of doing, what I wanted to do. 5 years ago I had no idea how to get here or if I even would, now I am there. We all have dreams, but to make it to them is another thing entirely. It brings me such happiness and amazement that I got to where I am, no matter what happens from here.
I had planned on writing something better or more eloquent for my LiveJournal send-off but there are times when the perfect words just arent there, I hope anyone who reads this takes away from this experiance that you don't know whee life takes you but that dreams can come true if you want them bad enough and you work your ass off for them.
So that ladies and gentleman is my LifeJournal. I wish everyone well in all things they do, and I hope that everyone gets out of life what they want of it. So for the last time, and for real this time...
I AM OVER.

It's so great when a plan comes together.

24 years old.
Being the contemplative SOB that I am I have been thinking about where I am and where I'm going, and for the first time in a long time I can honestly say that I am going where I want to go and the future is clearly in my sight.
I am in law school and doing alright at it. So my future career plans are looking good, in the short term the chances are good that in January I will be able to get a job with someone who has won office.
In terms of my personal life, that muddles along as it always has, and more and more I'm thinking as it's meant to...maybe I won't be ready to get that in order until I get the other stuff right, so I can be ready for it.
This time next year I will have 1/4 of a centruy under my belt, let's see what I can do in this next year. Current Mood: good

When I started this journey by leaving for Lansing I had a simple message to put here, and now as my finals week is upon me I have the same message to put here.
Here goes nothing.

Ok well I went online and I got my schedule for my next law school semester, and I will be spending three classes in Lansing, but luckily they stacked two of them so I will only have to go there two days a week, saves me a bit on gas. Anyway here it is.
10-1 Civil Procedure I
3-6 Contracts II
Wednesday 3-6 Property II
and my one OU class Thursday 3-6 Torts II
So that is what I will be doing between May and August, fun huh.

So Linda classicshe
poked me using one of these new LJ options that they are putting in so it can compete with MySpace and Facebook telling me to update, which frankly Linda is a bit hypocritical because when it comes to updating you do it less frequently than I do.
So since I have been prodded into updating I guess I should tell you about my first two weeks in law school, a sintilating topic I know but it's all I have done since the New Year.
As I said last week I was the second person called on to stand and discuss a case on the first day and first on the second day. My heart hasn't beat like that since senior year of high school, long story, and no it doesn't involve a girl.
After that died down I began to try and get more into this which means I began briefing cases, and briefing cases, and then briefing cases. A dozen or so for Torts and Crim Law, I didn't do Property this week, shoot me, and 4 today for Contracts with 8 practice questions that needed answering.
Briefing is still a mystery to me, every professor wants different kinds and amounts of imformation from a brief so I have a different tempelate set up for each class. I find myself doing briefs quite quickly, more than I think I should be, but then I get to class and I have what i need for class discussion, of course I'm not perfect all the time, no one is especially their first go round this stuff.
Outlining my classes is my project for this three day weekend, and if I'm a really good boy I will brief all my cases for this week so I'm not doing them the morning before my classes.
Since I'm back at OU's campus I've been popping into some of my old studnet orgs from undergrad, because there aren't any at my campus because it's for the first 15 credits only until the ABA allows us to have more. It's good seeing old and new faces but seeing the people I did all this stuff with getting ready to leave really makes me want to either get more involved in Lansing if that is where I'm going to have to spend time if the ABA thing takes too long, or once we are a full campus to start organizing stuff at OU's campus. I will have to see, but right now my focus is on doing this stuff right, this isn't like undergrad, the first term and year are very important in regards to your future. No pressure or anything.
That's all that's going on. If you want me to yammer on more then ask me myself. Otherwise, and I'm bringing this back after a long time of not using it...I AM OVER. Current Mood: sleepy

On my first day of class, Torts, I am called on 2nd to discuss a case.
On my second day of class, Property, I am called on 1st to discuss a case.
I am detecting a pattern here.

Well it is now time for the annual resolution post, as I did last year I will put it behind the cut.( New Year's Resolutions 2006Collapse )
In case I forget to mention it to anyone, I am going to be getting a laptop to take to school with me, so I will using an AIM name for that, if you want it ask me for it, because I am going to start using it this week.
Happy New Year everybody. Current Mood: anxious

Rest in Peace John Spencer
A man who was on one of my parents favorite shows, L.A. Law, and a man who was on one of my favorite shows The West Wing.
He was a great actor and a good man. He will be missed.
He was only 58 years old, he died of a heart attack.

You fit in with:
Your ideals mostly resemble that of a Humanist. Although you do not have a lot of faith, you are devoted to making this world better, in the short time that you have to live. Humanists do not generally believe in an afterlife, and therefore, are committed to making the world a better place for themselves and future generations.

This hasn't been an overall good year, for some reason the odd ones aren't. However today after a long drawn out pain in my ass process, that involed make up classes, getting transcripts out after wiaitng for my degree to be posted and everything else, I can finally say this from the rooftop of my new house.
I GOT INTO LAW SCHOOL BABY.
Starting in January of 2006, finally finally finally.
Looks like 2006 will be another banner even year.
For the first time in a long long time, I am actually happy, without reservation or anything. And I pledge this to all that read this, I have squandered my potential for too long, I squeaked through both high school and undergrad, no more, as you as my witnesses, I swear that I will push myself to be as good as I can possibly be, I may not be at the best law scool in the world, but I will be the best there.
That is all for now, thank you to all for your wonderful attention.
Edited to ad something someone asked in a comment, I thought I tod everyone which school I was trying to get into, it is the Thomas M. Cooley Law School's campus at Oakland University. Current Mood: ecstatic

If you read this, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad. When you're finished, post this little paragraph in your blog and be surprised (or mortified) by what people remember about you.
This will be interesting to see who responds and with what.

You're Randal Graves. You're a sarcastic

Ok last year the Curse of the Bambino was broken.
Now the punishment for the Black Sox has ended.
I guess that mean next year the Cubbies are going all the way.
If only it could translate to some good luck for the Tigers.
BTW, new house is good, parking in a construction zone not so good. I'm going to have a dirty car until I leave.

I'm back and better than ever...I'm back and making things better.
Yes you two people who give a flying fuck about my life, I am back where I belong on the internet. However tomorrow I might be off for a while, if my damn desk
comes in, as opposed to today when it was supposed to be in, instead I am sitting on the floor of my new room surrounded by boxes and my computer.
On a side note, Linda when you get a chance could you tell me what the hell happened while I was gone, I read the posts and I did a WTF at a few of them.
Other than that everything is coming along well. Thanks mostly to the backbrace I still have from K-Mart, that is the reason I am not screaming in pain right now. All I have to deal with is Comcast fucking up my e-mail and most of my e-mail not coming to me at the moment. So if anyone needs to get to me use my GMail account, if you don't know what it is ask and I will tell you.
Well that's all for now, see you out there.
