I optimistically thought I would finish the final edits for my law review article before 5 pm today.
As my sister could tell you, that did not happen. But I did finish and submit it. Eventually. I want to sleep now for a very, very long time. Except now I have to catch up on the hundreds of e-mails I’ve been ignoring while finishing it.
Happy 4th of July!
I spent a lovely day with family and finished by seeing the new Spiderman movie with my brother. It was pretty epic.
I am not saying Thomas Jefferson is my spirit animal, but he might be my spirit animal.
Redheaded book lovers really are the best.
Me: * drinking coffee at 5 pm * I won’t regret this. Nope. Not at all.
My Administrative Law Class In A Nutshell
Professor: “So that is a Chenery I analysis in the State Farm context. The court doesn’t get into Vermont Yankee. But remember, we are talking about the APA here. It looks different if the agency is interpreting a statute or its own rules. Then we use our Chevron, Skidmore, or even an Overton Park type analysis.”*
*These are all the short forms for foundational cases we read in class.
This meme summarizes my entire living alone experience. I love it.
(My sister informs me this meme applies to everybody regardless of whether or not they live alone and it certainly isn’t a habit I picked up since moving out. She’d know, she had to share a room with me.)
I phone banked all day today and I am exhausted. I am stiff, sore, my tendinitis is inflamed…it really is ridiculous. You would think I did a major workout. But on the bright side, I also got 24,000 steps in today! I’m hoping to make it 25,000 before going to bed. I move while I talk and phone banking means talking and moving quite a bit! The other part of my 9.5 hour day was spent preparing for a presentation, which means more talking and walking as I practiced. In conclusion, I moved a lot today!
It is so worth it, though, for this wonderful feeling of accomplishment I have tonight as I sip my mint tea and curl up with a good book. I didn’t just survive today, I thrived!
