Updates: Bugs & Law

Friday after work, I found ants swarming the pantry. :( Saturday, I went to a local Obon festival with some friends to watch the dancing and taiko performances. The first hour or two was basically just eating and chatting while watching demonstrations and a middle school choir, which gave us time to catch up, but next year I might go late and arrive just as the dancing starts. Less time in the heat. :)

This morning, I spilled half my oatmeal on its way to the microwave. It was extremely graceful and obviously a Wednesday. ;)

I also got an email with all the info regarding law school orientation. I still don't have the bill and I still need to figure out health insurance and all those other little details, but it's starting to feel real. I'm really going back to school! Wow, I'm really going back to school. O.O


There are a couple points where the race dichotomy veers into soapbox territory, but most of the time it's just part of the fantasy world and another piece of the story. Full review up tomorrow!

Currently reading:

I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. It's an interesting idea, but some of the logic/execution isn't quite meshing for me. And, while obviously the time-bending girl is special, is there any guy who doesn't want her? Seriously, just one guy who couldn't care less whether she lives or dies?

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Court of Fives by Kate Elliott! In which a girl must sneak around and save her family. :)


  1. I'm going back to school this fall, too. Not for something as demanding as law school (here's wishing you the best of luck!!). But I'm taking some computer classes to make myself more employable, and the campus doesn't exactly hold good memories for me. But after three years of being out, I'm actually kind of excited to be going back! :)

    1. Thanks! I'll definitely need all the luck and prayer I can get. It's been three years out away from the craziness for me, too. ^^; Good luck with the computer programs! I'm no tech wiz, but I do work in an office, so feel free to email me if you have any questions. :)

  2. I was invited to go to that festival! But I stayed home and worked instead. Maybe I'll go next year.

    1. If you do, just remember: the Japanese food runs out early, so come on time if you want that (but be prepared for a lot of sitting). If you just want to see the dances and taiko, come late. :)
