We made it!

Rosa and I made it to New York! We moved in to our summer apartment here on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. It's... cozy. But cool. We live in a pretty new building, secure and everything, right on the edge of Chinatown. Most of the signs around our building are in Chinese. Some are in English. And some are in Chinglish, if you know what I mean. We have stores called Lucky Good Times Grocery, and Happy Fun Sign Company. But seriously, we're having a great time.

The people at church seemed really nice today. A few lawyers in the batch, and of course people Rosa and I know from BYU. It's a small Mormon world after all.

Speaking of Mormons, Mike Wallace did an interview with Mitt Romney today on 60 Minutes. Great piece, if you ask me. Romney's a good candidate - I hope he holds up through the primaries. Of course there are a lot of Giuliani fans here in New York. And with Hilary as the senator, I think she's going to get a lot of votes out of this city.

Most of our stuff is all put away. We took our car out to my cousin's house out in Brewster, then took the train back to the city. We're officially car-less. Public transportation all the way, baby.

Off to bed... I start work in the morning. I've got a welcome breakfast, and my "summer sibling" has already invited me out to lunch. I'm sure the work gets harder after that. Wish me luck!

Celebrate good times! (come on)

Hooray!! I just finished my huge paper and submitted it online. That means three things of great importance to me:

1. I am finished with all my exams and classes for my second year of law school. I'm done.
2. I have finished my writing requirement for law school, so next year while all my fellow third-years are writhing in pain at this time, I'll be at the beach.
3. I can hit the road (seriously, like in 20 minutes) with Rosie! We're off to Manhattan for the summer!

I feel like a million bucks.

Rosa and I decided tonight that we won't leave tomorrow for NYC, but instead we'll wait until Friday. It's 2 in the morning - I'm still finishing up my paper, and there's still more to clean in our house. I start a new job on Monday, yet it seems so far away...

Happy Anniversary, Rosa!

This post comes 8 days too late, but I've finally uploaded our pictures into my computer. In honor of our second anniversary, Rosa whisked me away to a local bed & breakfast called the Foxfield Inn. It was a delightful place.

We had a wonderful time. Thanks, Rosie!!
