It's Been One Week

Fall semester started this week. I am taking 17 hours this fall -- Evidence, Con Law, International Law, Family Law, Criminial Procedure, and Law Review. We'll see how this goes. Beckett also started school this week. Miss Lacy (who he had last year) and Miss Shea are his teachers and Nate and Isabelle from last year are in his class again. He seems to really be enjoying himself and seems to be doing really well.

As far as the diet goes, I've done better this week! I have been stressed, but I managed to keep things in line. Exercise has been non-existent this week, but once I figure my schedule out, I'm sure that will all fall in line.

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountain yields.

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses,
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers and a kirtle
Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle:

A gown made of the finest wool,
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold:

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.

The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning;
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.

Christopher Marlowe,
The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
