As Happy as a Bird with a French Fry

There is nothing quite like the day after turning in some terrible-life consuming- assignment.  I swear I heard a group of angels singing this morning.  I feel like a thousand pound brick as been removed from my shoulders and I can finally breathe again.  I haven't been working on my Comment non-stop since it was assigned, but I've had this nagging, pestering thought in the back of my mind since then and to finally be free of it is SO NICE.

Finishing the Comment was not so nice.  The writing part was alright or as alright as writing an additional 15 pages can be.  (Paper grand total- 46 pages.)  But then came the source CD...which is my law review's euphemistic word for torture.  It requires you locating and highlighting and labeling every. single. citation. in. your. entire. paper.  I had 240 citations, 65 sources, and way too many string cites (i.e. multiple sources per cite).  It took about 9 hours to complete and left me a total basket case when I was finished.  So to anyone out there who is told they have to do a source CD...leave yourself plenty of time.

But it's done!  And I'm thrilled.  And next week I will be doing this with my siblings (and Jason)!!

Funny factoid about this picture- I have the flu.  I woke up after our first night feeling terrible.  A four hour nap on a bench outside the lodge and a raging fever later, we realized I'd caught the flu from the family I nannied for.  I spent the entire week of our ski trip in bed trying to survive on cough drops and tea.    And this picture is 100% staged.  I didn't ski that day.  I just put on my ski clothes to take a picture for my mom.  Ha.

Soooo excited!! What about you guys?  Anyone have any super exciting Spring Break trips planned?

My favorite is like 10 minutes after you turn it in (or are done with your presentation or final or whatever). SO much relief and happiness! Congrats on being done and I'm glad you get a little break. Have fun skiing!
