that's about how our holiday season has been. [it's still the holidays when you don't have a job to go back to.] we DID get all of our stuff down from Rexburg safely and packed into a storage unit. my brother and John did most of the work... but I had to man the elevator, so that counts. there are still several suitcases and boxes of clothes that need to be sorted and put away. it's my least favorite part of moving, and so it will probably take a month before I'm completely done.
in other news, we have officially applied to nine law schools. [the credit card only says seven, so I'll have to look into that.] but would you like to know where?! i knew you would. [haha.] in order of preference:
The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law
University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
University of Virginia School of Law [but if he gets in here, we have to go. done deal.]
William & Mary Law School
University of Colorado Law School
University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Wake Forest University School of Law
The Pennsylvania State University, Dickinson School of Law
Case Western Reserve University School of Law
so, this is MY preference, mostly. I did consult John a little, but he's playing video games, so I'm not sure how much he actually understood what I was asking. [video games are also something that you can do when you don't have a job.] we should start getting answers in the next six to eight weeks, hopefully. so PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for us. this school will determine not only where we'll be for the next three years, but also the region that we'll have to stay in for several years after that for John to work. I'm not sure if you've noticed, but there aren't a whole lot of available jobs out there for lawyers. :( we're also still waiting to apply to a couple more safety schools, but John sent a few e-mails asking for fee-waivers that we're waiting to get responses to. so we figure we've got a pretty good shot at going SOMEWHERE. just, pray for us anyway. we'd really appreciate it.
as a reward for reading this much nonsense, here is the annual Woodbury Family Christmas Eve Pajama picture:
|aren't we just so cute?|
oh, yeah. JOHN GRADUATED!! and we have proof. it's blurry, but it's proof.
|he was in a rush to leave Rexburg. haha.|
