Ceremonials

Back in March I posted about me, Florence & the Machine, and a bottle of wine (complete with slightly creepy pictures). I was a little behind in getting so into her album. But not his time…I don’t think. 🙂 I’m now pretty much listening to her new album, Ceremonials, on repeat.

Except this time, no bottle of wine. Just a good old law school memo to keep me occupied.

One of my fave songs so far:

Life on Mars

Yep. It’s been so long since I’ve posted that my blog forgot who I was. That’s because, like the majority of 1L’s, I don’t do much else besides study.

For me, the only place I can really be the most productive is in the library. I try studying at home, but then the next thing I know I’m pouring a glass of wine, flipping through TV shows, or insert “anything-more-fun-than-reading-about-Crim-Torts-CivPro-or-Contracts” here.

Last night, with half a bottle of wine on my side, I was finally inspired to start going through and editing the pics from my trip this spring/summer (that was my Saturday night. I am no longer going out on the weekends until after finals – see, I have all these new rules for myself now too). Needless to say, I’ve been putting it off. It may seem silly, but it’s been hard to look them because it was just the most amazing trip I’ve ever taken myself on and I really miss it.

Not that I can’t go again! Of course I will. I’m working on getting a international internship for next fall, but in the meantime I get really nostalgic when I look at them. Besides that, I hate editing and organizing photos. I find it so tedious. The reward though – when I get over the nostalgia – is remembering fleeting moments I snapped up and had forgotten about. They remind me that no matter how much I love law school (and truth be told, I do) and immerse myself in my studies, there is life outside the library, outside the confines of GGU, and that soon(ish) I will have a more balanced life again.

I’ve only gotten through my first two weeks of the trip (England and part of Holland), and I will eventually post all of them on a flickr stream, but for now, here are some of my faves.
