Why the new look, you may ask?
Because I've had the same one for a YEAR now! That's right - my blog has been around for a year. How bizzah. In that time, I have prepared for, taken, and passed the Bar exam (and been sworn into the California Bar.) I have remodeled and sold my home in the DC area. I have re-established myself in the Bay area - moving, buying a car, finding an apartment, locating the nearest Target, etc. And, oh yeah, starting a new career.
The blog has chronicled the emotional topography of the past year (for the most part: not surprisingly, there is some schtuff I keep off the Interwebs.) It has been an absolutely fabulous way to connect with and meet like-minded people. As much as my friends from high school, college, work life, etc. are wonderful people - my fellow bloggers also occupy a place in my heart. I'm a sucker for good writing and magnetically drawn to good storytelling, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I find the blogworld so sympatico.
What will the next year bring? Will she ... buy a new place? Start doing races again? Moderate her Target addiction. Tune in next time!
