everything's coming up milhouse!

When I last blogged, I...don't remember what I was talking about, but that doesn't matter now because I got myself a summer internship! The first one I interviewed for, actually. It's at the Maryland Attorney General's office, specifically the People's Insurance Counsel division. I am SO excited. I realize it doesn't sound particularly exciting but from what I learned in my interview, it should be really interesting. The people also seemed very nice, and the cool part is that I get to have a sweet security badge to let me in the office! I don't know why, but that is the most exciting part to me. I got the letter on Friday offering me the position, and I pretty much immediately called them back to accept. I thought about it, and I decided not to wait and see if the other internship I interviewed for would offer me a position. I don't like to gamble, and I didn't want this position to go away while I waited to hear from the other one. I'm just happy to finally have a summer plan in place.

I also recently got some good grades on assignments in school, so that is contributing to my general feeling of well-being. Same goes for the pleasant weather we've been having (except for the few exceedingly rainy days over the weekend. That, I can do without). However nice the weather is, though, it is wreaking havoc on my sinuses. You see, I never, ever had allergies before I moved to Maryland. However, right around spring time every year, I start to sneeze, snort and sniffle every damn day. I woke up today with my right ear totally plugged from the congestion and spent the better half of my first class totally unable to hear out of it (luckily my left ear compensated. I may be blind as a bat without my glasses but I practically have supersonic hearing) until it finally popped. I've got to get myself some Zyrtec because it seriously helped me last year but WOW it is so pricey! Allergy meds, on a whole, are super expensive and that's why I generally end up suffering until my dear mother buys me a bottle of Claritin or something.

Deedly dee. I'm bored with commercial law but I have nothing of substance to blog about, so I'll leave this with a picture of some cute cute shoes I bought at DSW a few weeks ago. They are just about bursting out of the box and begging me to wear them, but I don't want to wear them until school is over for whatever reason. They are summer shoes.

Cute shoes, picture won't copy for whatever reason.


  1. adorable shoes! again, like a few of my clients have said - at least we aren't having house-leveling tornadoes. Rain I can live with- especially since it snowed a tad this afternoon. Blech.

  2. So the company where I work has electronic security badges. I have worked here for 2.5 years, and I still feel cool every time I use it. :)

    Congrats on the internship!

  3. Thank you! I must admit, it's probably what I'm most excited for. I don't know why, but it seems thrilling.
