    Rain and grades and next year's classes.
    I just returned from my first run ever in the full-blown rain. I usually will use the excuse to stay home and put off exercising to another day (unless I am going to a gym, which I am not this summer). Today, I heard wet on the road, peeked outside, and thought it was just wet from rain that had passed. So I got dressed, and went outside, and it was POURING. I stood on the porch for a minute, wondering what to do. I decided to run anyway. Then I stood on the porch for another minute, and said out loud to myself, "this is kind of like jumping into a cold pool!" I talk to myself all the time.

    It was nice. It was fun, and I think I even picked up my pace. Now I don't have that excuse anymore.

    I am doing a trial practice training at work today. When I first signed up for it, back in March or April, i was very nervous, and thought it was a very big deal. Since then, I've more learned the vibe of this summer job, I've made it through a "public speaking" training, and I know that this is not, after all, a big deal. But it will keep me at work late.

    Tomorrow my school is putting my grades in the mail. Even typing those words makes my stomach jump around. It has been soooo long since I took my exams - I barely remember what classes I took. I hope I did well in Fed Courts, since it dominated my life and study time.

    This also means it's getting to be time to pre-register for next year's classes. The tenative list is as follows:

    Professional Responsibility -- 3 credits
    Balancing Security and Liberty (seminar) -- 3 credits
    Appellate Advocacy -- 2 credits
    Basic Income Taxation -- 4 credits.

    The back ups are Comparative Law and Labor Law I. I really don't want to take the back ups. I want my 4. I really have no choice about PR - most people took it last fall, but I didn't want to be dealing with the little exam thingy (MPRE?) while finishing up with the class I was teaching.

    If I get my way (the above 4 classes), it's a 12 credit quarter. That's the lightest I've ever gone. I hope I can feel it. I hope I'm home earlier, and studying less, and at the gym more. Isn't that what Third Year is for?
