Is this thing on?

*taps on mic*

Hello? Is anyone still out there? What's that you say? You've all stopped reading blogs? Particularly blogs that haven't been updated in almost two years? Well, I can't say that I blame you.

I could give you my nine million excuses for my total and complete radio silence. But any explanation would be just that; an excuse. So maybe I'll just ask, no beg, for your forgiveness and get on with updating anyone who's still out there in the interwebs about my life.

Let's start with the most massive change: I'm moving to Michigan in August. That's right, Michigan. As in the state that someone decided to split into two pieces. Why Michigan, you ask? Well, because that's where I got into law school. Yup, law school. I'm pretty much going to be Elle Woods. Minus the Lexus and Harvard education, plus the student loans. I'm excited, scared, nervous, thrilled, and a little overwhelmed. I know no one in the great state of Michigan, so this will be an adventure in the vein of the illustrious Bilbo Baggins.

Deciding where to go to school was a massive learning experience. Some of the best advice was given to me by my dear friend Liz when I found out that I hadn't been admitted to one of my top choice schools, "You know what: adventure is not to be had there. A change a scenery will be amazing for you."

I've lived so much of my life doing what was safe. It's not that my life is bad, it's just been small. I could make a list as long as I am tall of all the things I haven't done. While my moving across the country isn't going to cause a shift in the space time continuum,or be written about in any type of history book, in my tiny insular world, it's going to be a substantial change. Not just because I'm moving away from my family, friends, and job; it's because I've finally decided to allow myself to truly have an adventure. I've decided to continue to build a life that I'm proud of.

So apparently that is going to require me to haul a small portion of my obscene amount of stuff to a state shaped like a mitten and fill my head with dizzying logic problems and Latin terms.

And I couldn't be more excited about it.

Stay tuned for other random updates about life, liberty, and all the things.

I'm glad you posted again! I love stalking my lost friends. I'm so excited for you! Michigan sounds school, not so much. I hope it is as much as an adventure as you're hoping for. And don't worry, I'll still check in here just for you!

Welcome back!!

I'm excited for you!! You're braver than I am. The only reason I moved out of state was because I didn't have a choice, so good for you.

I will miss you, which is funny because we don't see each other that often. Still, the chances that we will see each other will be much smaller, and for that I am sad.

Yay you're blogging again!!!!!!! Does this mean you'll be blogging through law school? I couldn't' be more thrilled with that idea. Please bring blogging back, my desire to do so has completely died and I need you to inspire me!
