Rainy days are here again
Recently, one of my colleagues commented that there is more in our lives protected by the honor code than not, meaning that none of us can talk about anything we actually care about. This, combined with a significant amount of busy would account for my deplorable lack of updates, but I do have the time now. It is, after all, 7:40 on the first Sunday of "Spring Break" (oh, feel the laughter) so I have ten minutes to breathe.

And I find myself with nothing to write on. I went up for co-editor in Chief of the Brief I've been working on, which has consisted of my entire happy place at law school. I did not get it. I did what I usually do when I get an interview, namely, tanked it in new and interesting ways. I have set up an appointment with the career office to do a mock interview and they will hopefully help me figure out how to not be such a clutz.

It's raining today, and I find that to be the most striking thing about my life right now. That might sound dull, but to an Arizona girl who grew up living for summer thunderstorms and the rare rainy days, this is as close to heaven as I get. I took yesterday off and went for a wander around Adams Morgan. It was warm and sweet and the air smelled like the coming of beautiful things. I wanted to take the time this week to explore this city I live in and do right by it. I have a lot of work to do this week. I have 500 pages of reading and three days to do it in. I guess it's time I figure out how we do this.

Getting shot down is not enjoyable, but it's better to try and fail than to never try at all, I actually do believe that. Mock interview sounds like a good plan. When you run out of time, time stops existing, and you do what you have to when you have to, and the world keeps on spinning. Makes me think time is just an illusion, anyway.
