two months

It hit me last night that I'll be a student for the next three years. That's as long as I was at BUILD, and almost as long as I was in high school or college! I'll be celebrating my 30th birthday as a student! The student lifestyle is so different from what I've become accustomed to the last six years, and it's hard to believe that I'll spent the next three years reading, writing and studying.

week recap

It's been an exciting week since I last posted:

- It snowed last Thursday!
- I got my new camera!
- I went to my first haunted house!
- I took my first spinning class!
- I ordered a cool calendar and some new t-shirts!
- I made sloppy joes and tater tots!
- I shared a car and bought a couch at IKEA!

Now I need to decide what to be for Halloween...



I love to shop. I no longer have to sit on a box at home, as last weekend I finally bought a set of chairs to go with my dining table. Here is what I have:

Four Polyside Chairs (one in each color)
Beeboard Desk - Large (in white)

Now I just need a sofa, television and television stand.

I also bought a new digital camera, a Casio Exilim EX-Z850.

In other news, my Dodgers got swept this weekend by the Mets, but the Bears stomped Oregon and jumped back into the top ten!



As part of our Successful Student Series for 1Ls, Northwestern has us all take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to see what type of studying, group work and career would suit us best. I ended up as an ISFJ:

Extraversion or Introversion
Sensing or Intuition
Thinking or Feeling
Judging or Perceiving

Quiet, friendly, responsible, and conscientious. Committed and steady in meeting their obligations. Thorough, painstaking, and accurate. Loyal, considerate, notice and remember specifics about people who are important to them, concerned with how others feel. Strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home.

Basically, I'm warm and fuzzy, and like to help people. I think they mentioned most lawyers are ESTJ:

Practical, realistic, matter-of-fact. Decisive, quickly move to implement decisions. Organize projects and people to get things done, focus on getting results in the most efficient way possible. Take care of routine details. Have a clear set of logical standards, systematically follow them and want others to also. Forceful in implementing their plans.

to the right

Last Friday, Northwestern invited all of its 1Ls (first year law students) to a Communications and Legal Reasoning class taught by none other than Justice Scalia, everyone's favorite humorous but conservative Supreme Court Justice. Luckily, a friend saved me a prime seat for the standing-room-only speech in Lincoln Hall (a random picture of the lecture hall). The event was awesome, with the Justice providing humorous advice on how to be a good lawyer and write clearly, and then opening it up for questions.
