Ok, when I saw this article I thought that the picture was taken at the wake, and I was wondering why her eyes were open. Then I read the caption........

I don't know if I want to be that old, if that's how I'll look.......

A rare day off....

Ok, so I should be doing homework, or laundry, or......any number of a thousand things. And in a way, I did. I went to the tax office and cleaned up some extension stuff. But more remains. Funny how things tend to drag after tax season. Clients no longer have the sense of urgency to get things done. And actually, that's probably why they got extended in the first place.

Easter was nice. I won't bore you with details, because nothing happened of note, but it was nice to spend time with my family in a relaxed, sort of, atmosphere. I think it has to do with the semester winding down; I still feel pressure to be doing 'something', even when I'm trying to relax. I think I'll finally relax on May 19.

One nice thing about tax season ending is the gift of time. With that, I was able to turn in a draft for the first time all semester. A full draft, no partials. How nice. Even better, I was able to horn in on my fellow classmate's oral argument practice last night and get some of my own. I'll get more tomorrow when we argue a faux motion for summary judgment. My big moment comes Saturday. The fun part will be arguing in the Daley Center. I'll have to grab the classmates who argued tonight (hence my day off) and find out how it went. Of the five of us who practiced last night, I think I was the only one who was going on Saturday. The rest went tonight. I was going to try to write on for the Consumer Law Review, but they only gave us a week to write a 15-page article, and I didn't get that much time as a gift. So I'll shoot for Moot Court tryouts on May 2nd. Of course, that's the day of my Mom's b-day party, but she'll understand. I'll just arrive a bit late.
