McDonald's Monopoly, My Procrastination, Faults, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, Law School, and Pumpkin Flavored Things

(That is quite possibly the longest blog title I've ever written.)

I have such an addictive personality. I know I've discussed that before, but it's really sad when food that generally disgusts me can be among the things to which I get addicted. I am on a crazy streak of eating at McDonald's. I'm convinced that they've found addictive chemicals to lure me back in again and again. (Yeah Jeff, they're called fat and sugar!) Also, it's Monopoly time and I'm afraid that that is contributing a great deal to my frequency of McDonald's visits. It really is sad. I always regret it after I go, but I keep going back. Random: Since I'm so awesome and am always giving my readership great rewards...(lies, I never give y'all ANYTHING)... here is a free McDonald's Stamp Code! First come, first serve: 8XZ3QDT819J. (I don't think it's against the rules if I give it away for free!)

Uh... so I had a GREAT institute lesson yesterday. It was about repentance and the Atonement of Christ. There was a great quote that Brother Jacobs shared about taking the blame for our own actions. Thomas Carlyle said: "The greatest of all faults, is to recognize none." The whole way home I kept pointing out to myself in my mind how my own actions are almost always responsible for things that go wrong in my life or that make me upset. It's ME! (Currently, my fault of procrastination is why I only got a couple hours of sleep and feel like a zombie today.) Something that is probably also my fault for eating so much garbage is the OBNOXIOUS zit that won't go away on my nose. My struggles with it have made my whole nose red, and hence the reference to a beloved reindeer in the title of this post.

After getting my most recent LSAT scores back (it went well, but I got one point below the range that I wanted to be in), I have been getting all sorts of emails from random law schools. They're law schools that I've never really considered going to. Many of them are pretty nice, and many of them offer to let me apply without paying the fee. However, they are all in locations that I've never really considered living. Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Richmond, Louisville, Iowa City, Philadelphia.... yeah... I've never seen myself in any of these places. But I have to be honest, I'm getting really excited about going to law school. And I think it would be a bit of an adventure for me to go to one of these schools in regions that I've never even been. Anyway, I am a lot more excited about law school now that I get to just start applying and seeing where I end up.

I love pumpkin flavored things. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are my favorite cookies. Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie. I dare say that pumpkin chocolate chip bread is my favorite bread. I LOVE THE STUFF! I don't really understand why, but I'm always very happy about the influx of pumpkin flavored things around this time o' year.

Hmm... ok, bye.
