a little update about the state of affairs homefront…so much has been going on i don’t quite know where to start! i guess i should start with the three most life-changing happenings. first of all, mr. parks and i closed on our fabulous new condo on wednesday, and we couldn’t be happier about it. it really is beautiful, and i can’t wait for gus to check out the new digs! i’m leaving the decorating and room arrangement entirely to mr. parks’ discretion, since i’ve come to realize that he is my eyes and i am his ears. together, we remember things fairly well, but apart it’s a hopeless cause!
the second exciting thing at the moment is the fact that i’m almost ALMOST done with law school. these last couple of weeks feel like a major stretch. i apparently have to turn in a thirty page paper on monday, then i have to promptly start a second thirty page paper which is due the first week of may. i just had a presentation last week, and i somehow have to learn enough about my other three classes to take those exams. god, i fantasize about the time when i will no longer have to do so much work without being compensated. after this, i think i’m going to be done with school forever. and i mean that for real this time! on the positive side, so long as i finish all of the aforementioned requirements, i get to graduate and be officially finished with the last three years of postgraduate education. I CAN’T WAIT!
the third exciting thing is that i have a job!!!! i am so incredibly thrilled about it, and i feel like i’ve found the perfect niche. officially, i’ll be an “investment analyst,” but i’m not entirely sure of what that means (yet). i am quite willing to figure it out, though! i am going to be working with some incredible people who i care about very much, and i’m going to learn more than i can conceive of right now. i am so grateful for this opportunity and i can’t wait to get started!
anyway, i promise to update this blog on a much more regular basis. school has been driving me nuts and i’ve been out of town quite a bit. but you know what i love about this blog above all else? i love how it documents both the mundane and momentous events that mr. parks and i traverse each day. we will have a multi-media time capsule of everything we’ve shared together, and it will be here for our kids and our families…and for us! good night, all, i’m tired and not writing all that well!!!
