Whew. A lot has changed in a year since last thanksgiving. I went from a studio apartment to a 1 bedroom, I’m a second year law student who is a little more aware of what’s coming with final exams, I’ve gotten a little older, maybe a little wiser. I’m single. Lol
A lot has changed. Today, I’m thankful to be able to recognize change and to keep striving for improvement. Thankful to everyone who has helped me and been by my side along the way. Thankful all around.
Happy thanksgiving you guys :)
I can’t even stop my head from hurting, from everything that’s happened in the last few months and come to a raging head last night.
If I could pick up and move somewhere, anywhere… Maybe off the planet.
I don’t agree with burning flags. I don’t agree with burning down businesses and looting stores – you are hurting your own neighborhood. You are hurting your friends and neighbors, who you are supposed to be defending and standing with.
But I do agree that there is no justice. There is no peace.
It makes me question my place in law school, in law, in ways that it never has before. Am I becoming part of a broken system?
Because the only question searing in my mind is this: how do I change it?
But we can.
I tweeted something last night that I meant every word of. The saddest part of this is that we will be angry today. We will be angry maybe for a few weeks. And then we will forget. We will start to focus on fucking Kim Kardashian. (And like clockwork, she released a tweet about her new perfume or something like that.) All of the artists that we idolize? Where are they?? Speaking out?
Nope. They’re silent. And maybe it doesn’t concern them. But the silence sends a message loud and clear – we don’t actually care.
Does anyone realize that if we, as a collective nation, stood together and demanded and implemented change – things could be different? But we forget in a matter of weeks or we weaken in numbers. Why can’t we stay focused, including myself?
Am I becoming part of a broken system?
Or if I push for legislative change… If we push together.. Can we change things?
My mind is going in a million places. I can’t even think straight.
Didn’t get the internship. *sigh* back to my thoughts.
So I call this “white chicken chili” even though I’m pretty sure that’s not the name. But I LOVE this recipe. I eat it with or without tortilla chips and the ingredients are cheap and easy. Yum.
Voila. 3 days of lunch! 👌😁💕
But I actually like this stuff.
I’m wide awake.. And no coffee. Lol
Woke up at 4:30, stayed up for an hour and worked on assignments. Went to bed for an hour. Woke up, saw time, went back to bed. Woke up again, set timer for 30 mins and back to bed. Woke up, set timer for 5 mins.
Woke up.. It’s 7am.
Letter is due at noon.
Great. Ok. I can do this.
But first coffee.
“She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts. But because she continued on despite them.”
So I was watching “Love, Actually” last night while putting some furniture together and this scene played and I died laughing. Even more, I bought the song!! And I have been doing something akin to the same dances the PM was doing, all morning and into my run at the gym lol
It’s “Jump (for my love)” by the Pointer Sisters <3
