As I sit here typing this, I honestly cannot believe it’s the first day of JULY. June was a month of studying for me, and this month there’ll be a lot more of that, but it really feels like time is flying by. I always say that, but it’s so true. So today, I’m thinking out loud about what’s to come.
I’m thinking about… how July has always been special because it is my birthday month. On July 26th I will be 24, and while I know that’s really young, it feels SO momentous because I think it’s the age you can’t say you’re in your “early 20s” anymore. You’re just in those 20s now!
I’m thinking about… the bar exam. Yup, have to be, all the time. I’ve gotten to the point where I wake up in the middle of the nigh to grab a sip of water or use the powder room, and I’m thinking about what constitutes a valid contract. Dangerous territory. Also, flashcards are getting intense.
I’m munching on… ice cream. Ice cream will forever have my heart as the perfect summer treat (and anytime treat, but summer especially). I’ve gone to local shops Deborah Ann’s and Ferris Acres for some gluten free cones, and I’ve continued to concoct my own scrumptious sundaes. My Gluten Free Cookie Dough Sundae is a current favorite, as is anything berry flavored. I’ve been getting through a pint in 2 days or a big carton in 4 lately…just can’t get enough frozen sweetness. And apparently July is National Ice Cream Month, so I win, world!
I’m listening to… sunny songs. I’ve always been a mix n’ match girl when it comes to music, putting oldies and new hits from country to pop to rock in the same playlist. Classic Beatles like Here Comes The Sun and Good Day Sunshine keep me feeling summery as I study, along with upbeat newer tunes like The Heart by Needtobreathe. I have been listening to this song ever since I first heard it on the series finale of Hart of Dixie in March. It is so catchy!
I’ve been running… To the beat of summer music (or a bar lecture) and to be able to say all that ice cream is necessary fuel. Sometimes in the city, mostly out in Connecticut, where the suburban roads seem like country trails sometimes. Gorgeous in the sun, making the heat worth it!
What’s on your mind this Thursday?
