summer 2012

This summer I am studying for the New York Bar and Alan is running experiments. I graduated from law school a month ago. Alan is working to finish his PhD by December.

Posts have been light: this last semester was a bear for me. I tried to do April’s 30 Days of Biking, but weather and scheduling made it pretty inconvenient. I love the Public bike that Alan bought me as a graduation present. It is the white mixte you see in my biking pics.

Speaking of pictures, I upgraded my iPod touch to a 4th generation, which has a camera. I have been enjoying instagram. It’s very convenient to click a quick pic and upload it to the blog. I make no promises about posts this summer (passing the bar is my #1 priority!!), but I will likely continue to post pictures of bike rides, my vegetable garden, special events, and, of course, the cats.

Round trip to Rite Aid for sodas and snacks.

I forgot to ride yesterday because I was busy building a Square Foot Garden. I was outside working in the lovely weather—an activity usually reserved for biking—and sort of forgot to go for a ride.

But I’m back on the program today!

8.15 miles round trip to Small Group

Day 4 #30daysofbiking.

8.15 miles round trip to Small Group.

I forgot to snap a daylight picture, so here is my bike in all its lighted glory.

By the way, I still want to come up with a name for my bike.  Since it’s a mixte, which is unisex, I thought of naming it something androgynous like Taylor. But I’m finding myself drawn to super feminine names like Coraline and Anastasia.  Update: I ended up naming her Madeline, and calling her Maddie.

Any thoughts?

0.85 miles to Rite Aid

Day 2 of #30daysofbiking

0.85 miles to Rite Aid. The weather was significantly nicer today (no hail!), but this was probably the hardest day in this #30daysofbiking. Today was my last 6:30-6:30 day. My 8:00am class is over Wednesday, and then I won’t have to leave at 6:30 to get to campus by 8:00. Yay!
