Hello Blog-world!

Well, this is my first official posting and it couldn't come at a worse time. I mean, I really should be doing school work. However, I've wanted to start a blog for a long time now ... ever since my idea for a novel began to develop. I'm not going to get into that whole novel thing now, but I promise to touch on some of the ideas in the future.

I believe that was back in July of 2004. It is not a coincidence that I had just received my second semester grades from law school. I only mention this because I plan to focus on the topics that at that time were a constant downer - my ADHD and law school. Those two ingredients do not add up to a tasty dish. As a famous horse once said, "No sir, I don't like it!"

I have to admit that my sister had something to do with me finally putting this thing together. I hope this blog will do her proud!

Back to my current state. I just have tons of @*#& to do for school. Anyone who knows me, knows that I feel this way much of the time. But its still true! Plus, for those who have not heard, I am officially engaged. This adds a whole bunch of tasks for me to complete - primarily, getting the ring (or as the Japanese version is titled: Ringu).

Di and I saw Henry Rollins perform spoken word on Saturday. Fantastic stuff...really. Who knew this guy was so smart 20 years ago when he was with Black Flag? Not me...but then again, I was only 7 years old.

I really wanted to meet him - just so I could approach him and tell him that I read his book as part of the required course material at a top-25 university. I took a Punk class at Tufts and we read his book Get in the Van, which chronicles his experiences of going from Black Flag's biggest fan to the lead singer, a la Marky Mark in Rock Star.
