Halfway, baby!

So I finished all my finals at last. I thought this semester might never end, and I can't tell you how grateful I am that it is over now. I never hated school -- and in fact always rather liked it -- until this semester. But this semester is in the past now and I can start to let all that pain go.

I won't find out about my grades for probably at least a month, which is just as well. I feel like I probably passed my sales final, which is all I want out of that class, and everything else probably went fine. (You have to qualify it with "probably" because anything can happen in law school. There is no security.) But I am officially halfway through my law school career. 'Zah!

My sleep schedule is all kinds of screwed up right now. It's presently nearly 4:AM and I'm not really tired at all. Might have something to do with the fact that I slept until 2:PM today... er, yesterday. So I need to work on getting that schedule back to normal.

I also need to work on getting some order back into my life. I straightened up my desk today for the first time in months and can actually see the surface. I used to work for an attorney who always had shit all over his desk and office floor, and I have no idea how he ever knew where anything was. Now I kind of see how that can happen, and hope I don't turn out that way. I have also completely neglected my housecleaning duties. I don't like to say it's justified, but I don't know if there's a way I could have done things any differently this semester because I was so mentally beaten from it. I hit the ground stumbling and never recovered. Here's hoping next semester goes better. It should, since I am signed up for classes I should be more interested in.

Now I also have to get down to looking for a job for next summer, which is stressful. I've found a couple firms that would be perfect if they are hiring. They are small general business firms that specialize in the artistic side of IP much more than the technological side, which is exactly what I want to have for myself some day. It would be great to get some experience in that environment while I am in law school. So I need to put together some application materials over my winter break and hope that someone out there who is a good fit is hiring. I will work for free, for god's sake. I just want a summer job. I feel like the 2L job has to be so much more important than the 1L job. I need to do something that will either be an audition to get hired after I graduate or that will be impressive enough that other firms will want to talk to me after I graduate. I wish I had a stand-in to do job searches for me, because they always weigh on me hard. Somehow things have always worked out, but what if one day they don't? It's a tough economy out there, and not even lawyers are safe from its effects.

I kind of feel homesick for Utah today, because today was my brother's 30th birthday, and it was also the birthday of one of my very dearest friends, and I really wished I could have seen them both today. If you guys are reading, I was thinking of you both today, and love you and miss you.

Thanks. Portland is pretty craveable. If you ever come up this way, let me know!
