What the "hail" and stacks of reading

First, I have a little craziness from earlier in the week...I got home from my Mini Trial on Wednesday and it had hailed while we had been at school! Only in the China Spring area of Waco, I believe because it hadn't even really rained at school.

I guess it had actually already melted a bunch by the time I got home because the pictures people sent into the news from China Spring that I saw later that night were MUCH worse.

Anyway, I came to Fort Worth on Friday after class. Tim and I went and ate at this place called Casa Rosa's - it was good! And then we just came back and hung out at the house because we were both really tired. He got up on Saturday and left to go to Shreveport for his friend Tennessee's bachelor party. He is on his way back right now. I got up Saturday and ran at the gym at the apartment, got some groceries, and then came back and started reading. My goal was to get all the rest of the reading done for the last three days of the quarter so that I could start studying on Monday instead of having to read for class. I got all of Practice Court 1 done on Saturday (read from about Noon until 8:00 PM) and then got one section of Practice Court 2 done between about 8:30 and 11:30 PM. This morning, I got up and read the rest of Practice Court 2 from about 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. This quarter (10 weeks) in Practice Court 1 only, I have read 3,982 pages of cases. I don't even knnow how much Practice Court 2 is because I printed all those cases myself, so they are not prenumbered. I wanted to show y'all what I read just the past two days to finish up for the quarter.

PC 1 and 2 cases from this weekend together

And this, is JUST the Practice Court 1 from this weekend. This equalled a little over 400 pages, so that should give a general idea of how much total I read this weekend. Yuck!!I hope everyone else had more fun this weekend than me! Only three days of class left and then one week and two days until exams are over! I have Professional Responsibility on Saturday, April 25 at 8:00 AM (2 hour test), then Practice Court 2 on Tuesday, April 28 at 1:30 PM (4 hour test), and Practice Court 1 on Friday, May 1 at 8:00 AM (4 hour test). I am moving up here to Fort Worth this coming Wednesday for good except Tim is going to come back with me on Saturday and pick up the few things left at the apartment while I am in my exam. I might also go ahead and stay in Waco on Thursday night before my Friday exam since it is at 8:00 AM. The next day I get to get a massage because we are celebrating our anniversary on May 2-3. We decided to stay in Fort Worth and spend the night at a hotel, so we have various activities planned. If I don't update again for a little while, it's because I am spending all my time studying but we'll see!
