Here’s how my morning went down:
5:03 wake-up call for Back on My Feet with my Team Homeboy people. Love them.
Yes the extra 3 minutes are a game-changer.
We met up and did our run — some of the team is already up to 3 miles! I ran with Louis (who has perfect attendance) on a challenging route in Elysian Park.
I came home and fell back asleep for two hours. No, I am not TOTALLY lazy. I am a law student with a flexible schedule. I have a final tonight (Trial Advocacy) and want to not be sleep deprived, so morning nap FTW!
Now, I’m captivated by a special on the History Channel about the JFK Assassination. Today is the 50th anniversary of that date. Even though I wasn’t alive when it happened, it is undeniably fascinating. My Dad and I were chatting about via email, and he said this:
I still remember the second-grade teacher, Mrs. Russell, a polio victim, limping into my first grade class and whispering the news in my teacher’s ear. They sent us right home.
Before I get all trial-ready and practice my closing argument again, I wanted to leave you with my favorite links from around the web this week:
* This post about hugging made me smile. I’m not a huge hugger (personal space, duh), but my experience at BoMF so far has definitely made me more huggy. The video in this post is so sweet — it made me tear up. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?
*This list of How You Know You Live at the Gym (Yes, I have a favorite front desk attendant).
*This toolish prank some Harvard kids played at Yale.
*This Kimye video. (No, not Bound 2. I have a lot of thoughts about that one). You know, this one from SNL: Waking Up with Kimye! (The bit with the Kardashians playing their favorite instruments? Amazing).
Not technically a link, but I’m reading this book (non-affiliate link, I’m not that cool). It’s called Pink Ribbons, Inc. and is about the idea of cause marketing and how philanthropy has turned into a profit-driving mechanism for many companies. I’d definitely recommend it — and I just learned there’s a film version. MUST find that.
What’s your favorite find this week from the world wide web? Link me, por fa!
Alright, I’m off to do some final prep and crush this trial. Have a great weekend!!
[Edited to add: I’m thinking happy thoughts for those in California awaiting bar exam results!!]
