Done with classes!

My 1L year is not yet finished, but with the close of my property book, my last class has ended. No more classes! Now I hit the rough road of finals, which is about two weeks in length, but feels like it's miles long. Constitutional Law, Mass Torts, Corporate Finance, and Property... wish me luck!

Happy First Anniversary!

To celebrate our first trip around the sun, Rosie and I went out last night for a nice Italian dinner and some killer gelato. She can't get enough of either of those (she's half-Italian, after all).

Then we headed out to the lovely Virginia countryside to a little bed and breakfast called South River Country Inn. The place is adorable, and everything was ready for us when we arrived - the flowers I had requested, along with a welcoming note from the owners, Judy and Cliff.

Morning brought us an amazing country view and Judy's famous breakfast, including homemade sausage! This is the kind of place you could sit out on the porch all day and drink lemonade. It was a lovely little excursion. We got back to Charlottesville in time to put the beef stroganoff in the slow cooker (Rosa's half-Hungarian, after all), for a great ending to a lovely weekend.

I think Rosa put it best when she said, "It's been a year and we're still Daryl."

Happy anniversary, Rosie!

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny came! He brought us Easter baskets with lots of yummy candy and even a couple toys. Greg & Michelle hid our baskets somewhere in our house, and we hid their baskets; luckily, we each found our own. After a delicious brunch with all our neighbors, we had a couple of egg hunts and a nice messy egg toss. Rosa and I sang in Church, as did my little choir. A fantastic Easter all around!

I'm too young to dye

We got together with Greg and Michelle this morning for some egg-cellent fun. Our fingers are still multi-colored.

Behold our creations!

Good day

Friday was nice to me.

I was selected to be a Peer Advisor next year, which means I'll be one of a few upperclassmen assigned to work with a group of 30 or so incoming students. There were a lot more applicants than usual this year, so it's quite an honor. I'll be back in the fall for new student orientation, and I'll help those new 1Ls get adjusted to life at UVA law. I'm looking forward to it!

We had a fun group of friends over for an evening of making sundaes (mmmmmm) and watching Brian Regan. What could be better?

special ed

Today I was selected to be the Special Projects Editor for my journal! It's quite an honor b/c I am now part of the managerial board, which is rare for a first-year law student. Although my duties will be various, the main thing I'm in charge of is organizing a large-scale symposium sponsored by our journal and the law school this coming spring. So I have to begin organizing soon, choosing a theme, creating a timeline, etc. Should be a good amount of work, but lots of fun!

No foolin'

I wrote a "student spotlight" piece that came out in this month's Student Laywer magazine, published by the American Bar Association. Fun to get something in the mail every month, and suddenly my name is under one of the articles. The online version is here.
