Moving Part 1

As Morgan and I get closer to graduation we have to consider where we would like to end up living. A lot of this decision depends on where we both are able to find a job, but we do have some say as to where we apply. Our main debate is whether we want to try and stay in the city, move to the suburbs, or move to greater Minnesota (think Rochester, Mankato, etc.). I honestly cant imagine living anywhere other than the city, but I'm coming around to the idea of living in one of the inner-suburbs.

There are just so many things that I really love about living in the city. One, is the great restaurants! I love the fact that I can get any type of food I want, at almost any time. I can't imagine living somewhere I didn't have that. Second, I love the culture. We can go to a professional sporting event one night, a museum the next day, and great shopping the next.

Finally, my favorite thing about living in the city is that it is never boring. Every day I see something interesting and…

Attention Metro Transit Riders!

Dear Metro Transit Readers (or any mass transit user):

I have noticed recently that everyone could use an update on the "rules" of riding the bus. Clearly I'm the authority since, at 24 years old, I've never had a drivers license and ride the bus more than the average user. Here are some rules that everyone should keep in mind while riding the bus:
Use the back door! It exists for a reason. No one (especially me) wants to wait while you slowly move past the back door to make your way to the front. There is nothing special about the front door.
Being fat is not a disability. Don't waste everyone's time by requiring the bus driver to put down the ramp. Walk down the two stairs, it wont kill you (although, the McDonald's in your hand might). Have your transit card ready when getting on the bus. Everyone on the bus knows you just spent 8 + min waiting for the bus to come, so use that time wisely and take the damn cash out of your wallet. Better yet, go get a Go-…

Last Days of Summer

Morgan and I are officially 3L's. We made it to our last year of law school! School started August 20th and we are into the full swing of things now.

The few weeks leading up to school starting were pretty hectic for both of us. Morgan was at Ft. McCoy in Wisconsin for a little over two weeks for some army training. It was difficult having him gone but the time went pretty fast since I was so busy.

The first week Morgan was away I dog-sat for my parents two dogs, Minnie and Bentley. Minnie is 11 years old and was very upset that she was left here. She followed me everywhere and howled when I left. I finally figured out that if I left talk radio on for her she would be a little more calm - so all the dogs enjoyed 9 days of Rush/Hannity/Lewis and I'm sure they all walked away from that better dogs ;-). Bentley is just a puppy and was 6 months old when he was here. He had amazing amounts of energy and taught me that I will NEVER get a puppy in a second floor apartment. I got quite …
