Sometimes a little sunshine, a little water, and good friends are the best cure for the blahs. In honor of a good friend's graduation, her family rented a party barge on Lake Travis. We spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon floating around the lake. It was exactly what I needed. I've lived in Dallas for about 6 years now, and there are times when I just have to get out of Dallas. This was one of those times. I was about an hour early for the party (timing a 4 hour drive is kind of tricky) and I spent about 30 minutes driving through the trees and the hills and enjoying the scenery. It was so nice not seeing a gigantic building or hearing a plane fly overhead every 10 minutes.

And after this weekend spent with those who've known me the longest near the place I grew up, I realized that it's time to return home. I'll have to wait until after I graduate (in 2013), but then it's time to go. Job searching is more difficult outside the city of your law school (and if you're considering law school, definitely keep that in mind), but I'm ready for the challenge. There was a time when I thought I'd stay in Dallas, but my heart will always be in the Texas Hill Country.
And as cheesy as it sounds, home really is where the heart is.
