“We’re not gonna take it” is probably a bad song lyric to have playing during a birth control pill commercial.

Two weeks and counting.  Seven days of class left.  Seven days.

I think Joel is going to take care of my cats.  And I’ve got my flight to DC.  But I’m still working on a place to live.  It seems like things are falling into place though.  I still have to send in my contract.  I’m very excited though.

my immune system

19 April 08

My immune system hates me, it seems.  In the past six weeks, I have had a migraine (or at the very least, a terrible headache) for five days straight, two colds, some random bug that had unpleasant symptoms, and now there’s something wrong with my eye.

My left eye hurts like crazy.  It now hurts whenever I blink.  There’s stuff coming out of it, too.  And when I lean my head forward, my left eye feels massively heavy and like it’s going to fall out.  It’s bad.  Pinkeye?  Let’s hope not.  My eye is red and swollen now, but I’ve been rubbing it all day.

Anyway, I have a couple papers to write and a trial advocacy trial to prepare for.  Woohoo.  I love my weekends.

The international law conference was great!  I met lots of really interesting people.  The panels were pretty decent.

My best friend also ended up being at the same conference, and we hadn’t established that until Tuesday.  Crazy.  But it was great to see her.  It had been graduation since we last saw each other.  And another really good friend from college lives in New York and works as a pastry cook.  It was so good to be around people who know me.  I guess it was a nice balance of old and new.

KU won the NCAA basketball tournament.  It was an exciting time.  I was in New York for the Final Four, and I hung out at an unofficial KU alumni bar.  People were going crazy for Russell Robinson (from New York, NEW YORK!).  It was tons of fun.

Anyway, life is good, and I’m very thankful to be surrounded by people who love me.  Oh, I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but I got a summer job at Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services!  I’ll be living in Washington, D.C. for the summer.  I just need to get through this semester.  I just need to get through Friday, really.  Our human rights symposium is on Friday.  Hooray!
