…”Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.” :)

I’m not sure if it’s wishful thinking or if folks just happened to read ImNobody’s entry on blawgs dying around mid-October (hopefully the latter), but my unexplained absence over the weekend prompted at least one person to think I pulled the plug on law:/dev/null.

No way — there’s a reason this place exists, and therapists’ prices are still too high for an alternative ;)

Today was actually Fall Break for the N.C. Central University School of Law, so this weekend was spent disconnected from the world as much as possible.

On Friday a group of friends and I played poker at my apartment (I actually won something for a change), Saturday was spent in Greenville attending the Homecoming festivities at East Carolina University (a place I never attended but frequently visit based solely on its reputation for parties), then on Sunday made a trip to the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh — where, in addition to being reminded why I love North Carolina, I happened to stumble upon the new centerpiece for my dining room table :D

I also decided I was going to introduce a new category on the blog: !Fail (which had to be written out as NotFail since WordPress doesn’t like the ‘!’ :beatup: ).

We all know every 1L goes through less-than-fun times, and I noticed by the numerous entries in the Fail category that I complain (a lot) even though law school hasn’t been bad at all so far (I’d even say it’s almost been fun). Then on Friday we got our grades back on those CivPro midterms and… I actually did pretty doggone good too.1

So a little celebration was in order, and in tribute to the Boolean ! operator I gave myself the gift of a new category. It’s also why the normal Fall Break festivities didn’t include any updates here at the blog ;) Hopefully none of you missed me too much, though if you did you have my appreciation :*

I’m heading back to read for tomorrow’s classes, gotta keep up the pace from now until finals — have a great night folks! :D
