Law School Will Be The Death of Me
Hmm...where to start, where to start. I've been more than gone for a few months, which sucks, but free time is sparse and well, you know how it goes. So I'll give a recap and hopefully, with RTX spirit abound, I can hang around here more when I'm ignoring property law readings.Law School
Well it sure as shit isn't easy and my grades (which all finally came in today) proved that. But, all that aside I am really enjoying it and I like learning about law and all the topics associated with it. Granted, it also shows me how people severely lack common sense and the criminal law cases we just started reading this semester make me question the whole of humanity, but, alas I do love it.
Also I got accepted into a program to study in The Hague, Netherlands for a month. Thus, when I arrive at RTX I'll be fresh from Europe studying International Criminal Law. I want to go into International Criminal and Humanitarian Law (war crimes, genocides, crimes against humanity, etc.) and this program is beyong optimal so I'm excited. Bonus: one of the people going with me is a huge RT fan!Internet Life
I have two big obsessions in my fandom life: RT and Sherlock
As much I as keep up with both, via videos, news, etc. I like to RP and whatnot in the Sherlock world and my gods don't kill me (even write some fic in it). Its a nice escape and I enjoy the characters created by the gents at the BBC. They have taken a lot of time and passion into their creation and I was blown away by the newest season. Personal Life
Going to law school and officially become some kind of functioning adult made me realize that there were certain things I could stop caring about. Most importantly, I stopped caring about what other people thought about me.
My apartment is decked out in all of my geeky/nerdy memorabilia and artwork - things that for a long while were deemed socially inappropriate for girls, let alone an adult, to enjoy but I said screw it and my flat now looks like comic con exploded inside.
The other thing that happened was I came out as bisexual (or pansexual, I'm really somewhere in between). I've known I wasn't straight since high school, but that announcement had a lot of bumps in the road and when college came around, I simply kept my mouth shut. I was at the time, and still am, in a wonderful relationship with Javi (@samurix7
) and when law school time came around I was sick of not saying a word. So when I showed up to the Lambda Law meeting (the LGBT law student organization) and someone asked me if I was there as an ally, I for the first time responded with a 'no' and couldn't have been happier. Granted, some people don't quite get it because I am always going on about my partner, Javi, and I see the confusion but thankfully he doesn't.
Oh! I got a tattoo!
It's lyrics from Mr. Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan, accompanied by artwork from Where the Wild Things Are. It's on my left thigh and the image isn't the best because I took it myself but soon I'll get a better one.
I think that's it for now. Love you all, and sorry for the sparse updates
