Today, for the first time ever, I get to sit out on our back patio and read something I want to read, a.k.a not a law school book. It feels absolutely spectacular outside, both because of my new-found freedom and because the weather is absolutely amazing. This has been both one of the coolest and wettest July / August combinations I can recall in my 40-odd years. I will take this weather over the alternative any day of the week.
So I went to the grocery store today. I listened to my iPod, and I generally ignored the other customers, generally living in my own little world. I had all the time I wanted; I could have spent hours in the store if I desired. I didn’t spend that much time, but just the knowledge that I could if I wanted to was enough to keep me smiling. And I hate the grocery store most days, so that is really saying a lot.
I also got my haircut. I have an absolutely fabulous stylist, who I adore, and he always makes me feel beautiful. That is what lesson wants on a stylist. Someone who can make you feel good even when you are having a bad day. I have, unfortunately, had a lot of those since I have been going to see him these past few years. I just feel like the time of strife is ending and good things are just around the corner.
Bar results come out in 22 days. For now, though, I am going to enjoy this beautiful weather and eat my Tahiti coconut Pepperidge Farm cookies and chill out with my fuzzy girlfriend.
