Just went to my first barre class and holy bananas, what was that.

And am I the only assclown who parks in a garage but forgets to bring their debit card to pay the fee? Cool story, bro.

You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are.

So official, I need a whistle.

This was literally the exact reaction that all of my coworkers had two days ago when my other (older) brother dropped by my office. I always thought they were the cutest, but I figured I was biased!

PS- They’re both single.

Not just a throwback, but also an incredibly huge birthday shoutout to my older brother Richie, who turns 30 today! 

Bossman’s father (who tends to also be my bossman at times) surprised me with tickets to the Heat game. This week is really shaping up to be one of the best in my life, I think. 

Hey guys,

Thanks to those of you who practiced The Secret back in February, when I begged you to picture me getting a 145 on the bar exam. Because it worked.

ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

xx

I’m no ordinary woman. My dreams come true

I’m not fond of mass Thank You notes/posts, but the positivity from those who read this bloggy blog has been overwhelming. And I’m simply overwhelmed with joy.

The road to today was certainly bumpy. Things hardly ever go quite as planned the first time around for me. My decent sense of humor has helped me cope with the bumps, but they always weighed me down just a little bit inside. I always thought that (if) when this day came, I would feel unstoppable and invincible, especially after the troubles I faced to get here.

I should be pretty damn ecstatic, because my dreams are now my reality. And while I was certainly happy and relieved, receiving the good news yesterday did not feel as huge as it should, and as huge as I know deep down that it is. Maybe it was because the bar examiners screwed up, and I spent fifteen minutes thinking I had failed (my God, was that an awful moment that I re-lived). Maybe it was my boss’ lackluster reaction. For whatever reason, it didn’t feel as phenomenal as I thought it would. Maybe it hasn’t sunk in.

But the reactions have been more than I ever expected. From dear friends, old friends, new friends, and you guys. Those who have known me since I was 8, when I first proclaimed I’d become an attorney. Those who I met in law school and studied with. And you readers, who have seen the most honest reactions from me since this journey started. From the job hunt, and the job find, to the big decision to move to Florida. From the hell and back that my ex and I had been through his parents. To passing the character and fitness investigation. To failing the bar. By one point. To the break up, and the flu, to being over it all. To thinking I failed a second time. But to actually passing.

Through the good and bad, you guys were my cheerleaders. All your good lucks & you can do its are really, truly, the reason that I am here. Thank you for joining me along on this ride. Thank you for the love.

My coworkers surprised me with this beautiful arrangement 😍

thegoodnitemoon asked: Really. Congrats!! So sincerely happy for you

Thank you and you too! So happy we never have to go through that again - I still cannot believe they posted the wrong scores!

So I guess we “cheers!”-ed a lot yesterday. These are my people.

Celebrated with a cold brew when I first took the LSAT; when I accidentally got accepted to UGA; when I actually got accepted to LUC; after I graduated; after taking the bar; after failing the bar; after taking the bar again; and today. #thebarwasmybitch
