I can't believe its only Wednesday. Seriously, these past three days have been the longest 72 hours of my life...But in the end, lets just focus on the positive. Ladies and gents, I present to you....


















my new (used) car! That's right, I finally purchased my own vehicle after years of bumming rides off of others, riding my bike (which I will still do lots), walking, and riding the bus (which, if I can help it, I will never, ever, do again!)

Nate and I are old. Last night we went to the Fall Out Boy Concert, and almost everyone else there was 17 or18, and didn't really know what a concert was...

Lately however, I've noticed that whenever it seems like my bank account is making me feel more comfortable... thats when everything seems to go wrong, or not wrong, but things come up. Come September I'm going to have massive spending and debt. Tuition, books, housing, moving... it'll all add up to the most money I've ever spent in my life. As time for that gets closer I try to keep my spending to a minimum, but then... I've been wait listed at William and Mary, and I feel its important to go there for a visit, talk with the Dean of Admissions, let them know that I'm awesome. Speaking of law school, I've decided to take the LSAT... again. I know, insane right, but the schools I'm waitlisted on…
