Wednesday wishes + This desk

Maybe having a desk like this would make me study more.

Wednesday wishes + Halloween costumes

There was a plan this year to dress up as a polygamist family, but that fell through, and we all scrambled for costumes at the last minute. I ended up throwing on a mask and some beads and called myself a Mardi Gras party-goer when anyone asked. Hopefully, I'll be more creative next year (I say this every year).

Have a very happy Halloween everyone!

Split ends + Wasting time

I really need a haircut. I waste hours each week picking at my split ends. The habit is gross, completely useless, and distracts me from my reading. This chart made me laugh though.

Still alive + Therapy dogs

My friend's friend brought her big silver lab over while a group of us were doing some light reading on the Commerce Clause, and we slobbered all over the poor guy.
via i can haz cheezburger
We heard the school brings a couple of therapy dogs to campus every year during finals "to keep us sane", but that the dog:human ratio isn't very good, so we've already decided to hide dog treats in our pockets to give us a leg up. Law school makes people crazy.

Wednesday wishes + Heels

So I ran into the wall while running in an obstacle course last week (don't ask) and injured my already bruised knee. I hope I stop limping soon...I really want to wear my new shoes.
I also wish these were the heels I was talking about (via Fancy).

Saturday Special + Autumn is here

It's been a very, very long week, and I definitely have the bruises (both literal and figurative) to show for it. I hope this weekend lasts for a while longer.

Unusual tests + Intelligent trolls

"Tyler [Cowen] once walked into class the day of the final exam and he said. "Here is the exam. Write your own questions. Write your own answers. Harder questions and better answers get more points." Then he walked out."
(via kottke

If I was a student in his class, I would be simultaneously impressed and annoyed. What question would you ask?

Slice of tea + Slice of life

More tea-related items to lust after. This one, unfortunately, is just a design by Anne Ouellete, but I can easily imagine this taking off with the right promotion.
The packaging is beautiful, and you know what a sucker I am for that. I hope the designer makes this a reality!

Sunday Special + An amazing week ahead

So my best and worst suspicions are confirmed: law school is definitely an adventure. More on this later when I can be coherent about this, but I'm glad it's lazy Sunday after such an eventful week.

I have succumbed to the culture around here and got a bike to get to class! It has a cute basket for my heavy casebooks. And on the way, I saw these cool-looking domes. Davis hippies. (via Davis Wiki)
