I almost forgot to mention that my AOL blog is officially gone :( I am glad that I backed up all my writings here. I will miss the AOL format. I've been blogging for almost 5 years now. You think that you'll feel the same way about things down the road, but that is simply not the case. I think I've changed a lot.
I also had a lot of pictures on my AOL blog. Unfortunately they didn't make it over to this blog, but I was able to save them to another service. AOL is also deleting their photo albums by the end of this year.
I did have a second journal on AOL that was private, but I save it all and deleted it before AOL did. I was going to transfer it over here, but in order to do that I would've had to make it public for a few minutes so all the files could transfer. NOT GONNA HAPPEN ! So I just deleted it. Maybe I will bring that back, maybe not. Probably not.
I went back and read some of what I wrote, and man was it juicy. Only people that I didn't know in person could read it, as I tried to remain somewhat anonymous. I wrote about what ever I felt like. And even then I held back. Even in my private journals in my house I hold back. I feel like I don't want there to be a record of the whole me. I also feel like I sometimes don't want to be completely honest and admit certain things to myself. Maybe I can do that down the road.
Speaking of other journals......... I stumbled upon my journals while I was in high school. It was interesting to see my point of view on love and what I wanted in a boyfriend. My how 10 years can change a person. By the time I was done reading, I felt a little depressed. I had no clue about the reality of the dating world back in high school. I grew up very sheltered. By the time I stumbled out into the dating world I was in for such a rude awakening. Rude awakening of how my expectations were out of touch with reality, and also a rude awakening of how mean people can really be.
Okay, enough for now.............
Happy Halloween !! I would like to go out tonite, but that is not happening because I have to work. You do what you have to in an economy like this. I can't complain about my hours, though. It lets me go to school and hold down an internship.
Today, I am not really feeling the love. It's just one of those days where I rolled off the wrong side of the bed. For starters I had bad cramps this morning and no aspirin. Neither did my roommate. He thought I had a hang over and was out partying last night. Yeah, I wish !! All he had was prescription drugs, and I had to drive, so I couldn't. Sitting through that 3 hour training with cramps really blew.
Today I went to my training to be an Election Officer. I think that it's good for us to get out there and volunteer for something like this, but I have to be honest and say that it kinda sucked. For starters, I got lost. The directions on Google were bad. It should've taken me 8 minutes to get there, and I thought I would have time to get coffee. I got there 45 minutes later. Then when I got there, the lot was full, and I wasn't even allowed to park there because I don't work for the county. I found parking, but it was a ten minute walk.
The training room was packed full, and I could barely pay attention because I was in pain. Plus the people that went to that training looked like they either just got out of prison or were dealing drugs, or on welfare. The training was informative, but I am not looking forward to working the polls till midnight.
After the training, I realized the part of my blouse was unbuttoned.
I also went to go eat lunch at the cafeteria. I had fish and chips. Just when I was about to pay, I found out they onlu take cash. I had 5 bucks and was a $1.50 short. I just told the man I was gonna put it back, but he sighed and let me have it because it would've gone to waste anyway.
I normally don't eat fried foods, but I do when I have cramps like I did today. Those fish and chips were so greasy and good. Under normal circumstances, I don't think I would like them as much.
Anywho, that is all for now. I forgot that I bought a bag of candy corn a couple of days ago. I look forward to a little midnight snacking after I get home tonite. Candy corn is my fave Halloween candy.

Okay, so I got my prenuptial agreement back and I got an A on that. The teacher said he had fun grading ours. Apparently most of the females in my class named Brad Pitt as their prospective spouses. See, Brad Pitt isn't really my type. I chose the lead singer from 311 instead. He also laughed at the fact that most of us chose to list that we had so much money in assets, but no liabilities, as if we weren't in touch with reality. Hello !!! Me chosing Nick Hexum as a husband is way out of reality, so if I can say he is my future husband, then I am also gonna say that we have no debt !
I also got my midterm in Family Law back and I got an A on that.
Yesterday I got my flu shot at school. I am such a wuss. I really hate needles. The flu shot needle is really thin, yet I still could feel it. I felt the liquid go through my muscle. It was unpleasant, and my arm is still a little sore. But at least, I am immune from some of the flu viruses that are out there. Oh, and it was free for being a student.
I think that is it for now, so I will go and either finish my homework or look for a survey.
Ciao :) :)

My other classmates that sat next to me up front got As too. What can I say, I guess a little bit of my pixie dust rubbed off on them too :)
I am still waiting for the grade on my prenuptial agreement as well as my exam in Family Law. But, I can wait a little longer, I suppose.
Don't forget that next week is the elections !! Be sure to get out there and make your vote count. I think I know how I am gonna vote on all of the propositions and I finally decided who I will vote for, for president. But, it wouldn't hurt to review the voter booklet a little more.
This time around, I will be an Election Officer. I have to go to training this week. I will be working at the polling booth all day during the elections. In addition to a small stipend, I will also be getting massive extra credit points for my class. Don't get me wrong, I need the cash, but I am doing this more for the credit. I gotta give myself a little cushioning in case I do a horrid job on one of my projects.
Anywho, that is all for now. I think I will go search for another random survey :)

Okay, so today was a very unproductive day to say the least. I should've done my laundry as well as the food shopping. But instead I opted to veg out in front of the TV all day until I had to go to work. So therefore, my pantry is still empty and my clothes are still dirty. I also need to buy some new clothes. But at least I feel a little more well rested. :)
I am embarrassed to admit it, but I watched Paris Hilton's new show "My New BFF" I am also embarrassed to say that I wasn't repulsed either. It was actually entertaining.
For those that don't know (I didn't know until recently either, BFF stands for Best Friends Forever.) Paris is looking for young people to be her new BFF. Haha, who wouldn't ? That girl is loaded.
I think the term BFF was invented a couple of years ago, but it hasn't grown on me, and my friends are simply referred to as my "friends". If I have a best friend, she would be my "best friend". But I just can't imagine myself calling my best galfriend my BFF. No way ! I am a college graduate and trying to launch my career.
I actually like Paris for what she is, which is a good business woman. By no means do I consider her a rolemodel or a source of inspiration, but then again, I am not looking for a role model or inspiration. People complain about how she doesn't work for her money, but she works very hard. Yes, she inherited a ton of money, but she is also working too. And people are buying into her brand, so why not ? If people were all into me and my products, I would be traveling the world and making TV shows as well.
Anywho, time for me to start thinking about doing my homework. My teacher threw a project at us in my Criminal Law class where I have to research different CA codes. It's taking forever, and very tedious.

They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now. You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere but that they are as confused as you. You look at your job...and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you. Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling onto the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward. You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender! What you may not realize is that everyone reading this relates to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Send this to your twenty-something friends... maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion..."

So I just took my second midterm this week. This one was in Family Law. My teacher asked a question of something he NEVER mentioned in class. When I told him that, he told me he wasn't gonna take my word for it. WTF???? He's just gonna wait to see what all the other students will write. I guarantee that we all got that question wrong.
He also gave us a study session. In that session he told us not to worry about knowing about annullments because he never really got into it. And guess what made it onto my exam. That is not fair, because he told us not to worry about it. Yet he still wants to hold us responsible. Either make me know everything, but if you are going to tell us not to worry about something, don't hold me responsible for it. Is this what it will be like when I start working for an attorney ???
What else is new......... I have been working overtime this week. I will do the same next week.I have bills to pay. My car insurance bill alone is monstrous. Plus I treated myself this week to eating out at restaurants. One of which was last night to get through studying with my classmates.
The good news is that I am almost half way done with the school quarter. The last quarter should be my last before graduation.
Anywho, back to my next class.
Monday, October 20, 2008
So today I took my exam. I think that I did well, but we shall see. I have a feeling that I may have mixed up some of the terms. But not bad for my first midterm of the quarter.
I woke up early this morning and proceeded to fuel my blood with caffeine. Then I studied, and I was happy when the test was over with. Unfortunately I have another one on Thursday in Family Law. My classmates and I should be getting together to commiserate and quiz each other.
After class, I got a nice back massage and a good old fashioned "back cracking" aka adjustment at the Chiropractor. I loved the back massage. The adjustment was also good too. A lot of popping in my back.
Anywho, I think I am beginning to bore you all with the mundane details...... I better go do another random survey :)
For $100 would you call 911 and tell them you were being abducted by aliens? NEGATIVO
What is under your bed right now? NOTHING
Do you sing along to cheesy 80s love songs in the car when you're alone? NEGATIVO, ME NO LIKEY CHEESY 80s SONGS
What can you do with a brick? BREAK IT IF YOU'RE INTO MARTIAL ARTS, OR USE IT TO LAY A FOUNDATION
Which is worse: being hot or cold while trying to sleep? HOT
If you had to choose, what kind of fruit would you be? PEACH

Okay, so I should be studying right now but I am taking a short break to write this entry. I have an exam tomorrow. Just brushing over the concepts of criminal law. Luckily I am allowed a sheet of notes. I will be waking up early tomorrow to caffeinate myself and review my notes.
Today was fairly relaxed. I slept in a little and my friend Shira came over to visit my new place. It was nice to see her, since we've both been kinda busy. Then we went for lunch. Yummy ! We went to Gordon Biersch, and I had some garlic fries along with my sandwich. Those fries are loaded with garlic. I will be burping garlic for three days.
I still haven't fully unpacked. I suppose that I could've hunkered down and finished. But, I was feeling lazy and didn't feel like bothering. Especially since we have TV and I haven't watched YV shows for almost 2 years. That, and the fact that I now have access to a pool and wanted to swim and chill in the hot tub.
So therefore everything is still in a massive state of disorganization. Simply getting dressed every morning is quite an adventure because I have to put in effort to even locate my clothes. I will work on more unpacking tommorow.
Anywho, back to studying :)

Okay, so I have a test on Monday morning in Criminal Law. I need to be studying right now, but I am really tired. In addition to moving and my course load, I have also been putting in more overtime at work. I need the money right now. My car insurance is due next month, and all I have to say about that is RAPE. It's too expensive :(
I went to a paralegal meeting this morning. I paid a lot of money for it too. Unfortunately it wasn't as good as the one I went to in June. This one was alright, but there were no recruiters there, and thus I could not hand out my resumes. The subjects being discussed in the sessions pertained to intellectual property or information management which SOOOO does not float my boat. I prefer Criminal Law or Family Law or Immigration Law. I know, it's full of such drama. But what is life without drama ?
The food was good though. I ate my fill :) Plus there was this speaker who helps run The Innocence Project. She is involved in helping exonerate innocent people that were wrongly convicted of serious crimes such as murder and rape. Could you imagine if you were at the wrong place at the wrong time and got nabbed for something you didn't even do ? It's interesting to learn about the misconduct in the police force as well as the prosecutors. I know that they are overworked and under pressure, but that doesn't mean that problems don't exist.
What else........... Nothing much else to report. Well, actually I do have a couple of embarrassing moments to write about....... But I can't since this journal is public right now. Oh well........

Well, today was certainly an interesting day. I had a field trip for one of my legal classes and we visited the older Superior Court in my neighborhood. It could walk to it in about five minutes. It was right across the street from that courthouse in the park that President McKinley gave his last speech before he was assassinated.
What else did I learn ? That people used to get hanged there as well. Since San Jose was originally supposed to be the location for our state capital in California (and actually was for a couple of years), the older courthouse was built to be the building for the state capital. Then it was turned into a courthouse.
The courthouse was built in 1866 when Lincoln was still in office, and it is designed from the Civil War era. Underneath the building was a very old jail that was shut down before the 1930s. Very crowded spaces. It was interesting to the the layout of an old jail, the bars, and the big metal doors. Nothing like the cells today.
We talked to one of my former teachers, who is also a judge. He talked about being a judge in civil court cases. Then his deputy took us to the old jail under the building. It was very fascinating. I took pics on my cell phone camera. I will try to upload them here. But in one of them I was kneeling down by the bars. It was very crowded and dusty. The ground was not made out of cement, as this was before the days of cement. It was a dirt floor. Apparently you could dig if you wanted to. You could see the original bricks, as bricks were the building materials used in that era.
I was happy to down there today, because it's not open for tours. It's a rare thing to see. So it was a little adventure in my neighborhood.
Oh, and below is the link to all this info:

So, I have moved ! Not only has my AOL journal moved, but so has my residence. I will be handing in the key tommorow to my landlord and then......... peace out ! I just need to pick up a couple of more things, take some stuff to Good Will, and clean up my old room a little. My old roommate has not been very nice to me since I told him I was moving. He doesn't say hello, and even forbade me to do laundry. Haha, I couldn't believe it. I hadn't done a single load in two-three weeks, so I decided to do two medium sized loads, and his panties were in a wad over it. He complained that I was upping his bill.
I still have a lot of unpacking to do at the new place. My bathroom is a disaster. I hope to get it all together by the end of the week. I am thrilled to be getting my own bathroom, and I am happy that my roommate bought a new bed for my room.
On another note, I am getting into my coursework. Midterms are coming up, and I have a lot of studying to do. Right now I am working on drafting a premarital agreement. That is certainly interesting.
I am ebellishing a little, to show the teacher that I can be creative and include all sorts of different provisions. Apparently you could put whatever you want in the agreement. Provisions regarding property, finances, who does what chores........... Hell, you could even put in the agreement the days you want to have sex if both agree on it.
However, the truth is that in real life my prenup would be very short should I ever decide to get married, or if I even want a prenup. Only provisions regarding finances and property are enforceable by the courts so I would only include provisions regarding those two things. Everything else, we would agree on orally.
Anywho, time to get back to the prenup. And for the prospective spouse, I decided to put down Nick Hexum from my favorite band, 311. I guess I should go and alert him !

So, this is my first posting here on this blog. I am not used to the layout, but whatever. AOL Journals was just so much more convenient,
This is a free service. And you know what ? I guess all that really matters to me is that I get a place to write my thoughts.
On another note, I have a lot to talk about. I am in the process of moving. I also have a huge amount of reading and studying to do. I am tired. I work fulltime, go to school fulltime, and have an internship. I have not had a full day off since August. And before that, I can't even remember. There is always some obligation. But I can't complain. It is critical that I finish my classes soon and get a better job. Especially in this crappy economy. I am not getting any younger and I need to start thinking about a career with a decent health plan so that I can get braces.
My internship is going nicely though. I am now learning about motions, and I will get to draft up motions for the attorney. I have been there at my internship for four months. My how time flies.
Anywho, that is all for now. I will be back another day with much more to talk about :)

So I've been a member of AOL for nine years now. The only reason I've kept my account was because of this blog that I started at the end of 2003. But now AOL will be closing it down by Halloween. So I don't know if I should even keep that. Plus, they increased my price by two bucks a month. I think I will just cancel AOL, and pray that they don't keep charging me.
I don't know that I will do with my blog. I would like to continue it, and I think that I will transfer it to the new service that AOL chooses. I have so many entries, and I simply don't want to print them all. Plus, five years of blogging through college, my trip abroad and back and my career, is just to important for me to just let it go to waste.
