    Yesterday, the Future
    yesterday was a fun day.

    1) Beloved made our reservations in both Paris and Amsterdam. I am very happy and I am very excited. I am also stunned that it's really so soon. We leave on 7/28. That wouldn't seem so soon (or maybe it would) if betwen now and then weren't this blur of time called the Bar Exam, which will FLY by, and keep me 100% occupied. It will be this looming thing in the future which will cause time to go by fast. I won't want it to go by fast, because I w'll want more time to study, but then, once it is here, and then over- BAM - it's time to get on the plane!

    2) We made camping reservations! We're going with the girls in Vermont, on a river, in August. My parents are lending us their car for some time, while they're off in another country, and so the expenses will be so small, I'm okay with going despite the lack of paycheck until October. Kinda funny that if we had found a hotel for $54/night in either of our destination cities mentioned above, it would have been a miracle, yet for 3 nights of camping, $54 is the TOTAL! It helps that we have all the gear. We camped regularly in CA, but haven't managed to make it happen once since law school started. I'm very excited that we're getting to do this - both because I've been craving camping, and because I want to do something fun with the girls when they return.

    Once I get past this giant wart on my future, the rest will be quite grand.

      Amsterdam is my absolute favorite European city- I hope it treats you both as well as it's treated me! You must take a canal boat tour (you can get tickets in the main train station)- it's the best way to see the city and it's a nice rest from all the walking. The Anne Frank house is also incredible- very moving.

      Good luck with all the bar studying- I'm glad you have such an awesome trip to look forward to!

      I'm so jealous of the camping! My partner isn't really a camper, and I'm having to convince her that it could be fun!

      Try baby steps! Start with a cabin, then a lean-to, see how it goes and if she gets more open to the idea. I don't think I thought of myself as a camper 10 years ago. But now I love it.
