I’m blissfully happy.

I grind my teeth.

I smile all day and laugh everywhere I go.

I have nightmares.

I play boardgames, go rock climbing, talk to friends.

My stomach churns.

I go out on dates.

I’ve got my eye on the calendar…

Not only that, but so many other things have happened (uh, lost camera, lost debit card, law school loans coming out of the grace period) that should make me pouty or sad or at least dampen my bliss. Maybe the Neuro Bliss that I drank last Monday is still hanging around in my system.

Who knows?

But I’m still happy. And I wish I could bottle this feeling up because I might really need it tomorrow. Maybe this is me just making myself as happy as possible to guard against the misery that I might feel tomorrow? Is this denial? It must be. Blissful is ignorance indeed.

Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be.

Person: Best Boss Ever

Addy is quirky and off-beat. She’s interesting and instantly adds a spark of life into any situation. She’s also my boss. She basically hired me based on one meeting with her. I e-mailed her for job advice, and the next thing I know she’s e-mailed me that she has recommended to her boss. The rest is history.

She’s supportive of where I am in my life since she’s been there. She knows how hard I’ve been job-searching for legal jobs, and how difficult everything can be. She knows the weird limbo I am in because I am waiting for my bar results. In fact, she turned to me one day and grins, “So, what are you doing the day you find out?”

I grimaced at her because I have really tried very hard not to think about that day.

“I’m on it,” she says with a Cheshire cat smile on her face.

I’m pretty sure we’ll be watching Harry Potter drunk, and drinking some more, and sushi-ing it up…until the fateful hour the results show.

I’m pretty scared. But Addy assures me that whether or not I pass, she will still like me. Hahahaha! That’s why I’m grateful for you.


I absolutely LOVE Halloween. It’s always been one of my favorite “holidays” because I get to dress up and be whatever I want to be. It’s also a great opportunity to see how funny, creative, and awesome friends are when they come up with costumes. This year, with Halloween on a Sunday, it was fun celebrating Halloween for three straight days.

Thing: Water

Three straight days of Halloweening does not do a body good. Water, on the other hand, makes it all better.
