Talk about a blog hiatus. In order to get myself back on the blog bandwagon, I'm going to try out a 30 day blog challenge I found on another blog. I don't believe I've ever blogged for 30 days straight, so this will, indeed, be a challenge. Here's what I will be blogging about for the next 30 days:

15 Interesting Facts (Well, interesting to me):
(1) I am on the downhill slide of my last year of law school, and by "downhill slide," I mean I had my LAST class yesterday. Graduation is May 21st. I can honestly say that going to law school was NEVER the direction that I thought my life would take, and yet, here I am -- a mere 29 days away from my J.D.
(2) Literature means more to me than I am really able to express. Someone once told me that there was no point in reading fiction because those things never happened. I couldn't believe it.
(3) I have a beautiful, hilarious, and brilliant 5 year old son, Beckett. Biased? Sure. But anyone who knows him knows that I am really not exaggerating that much :)
(4) Speaking of B, those of you that know me really well know that this past calendar year has been the hardest of my life. I'm not going to get into any details, but let's call it "Betsi's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year." That about sums it up.
(5) I have recently learned that I am the kind of person who is (relatively) quick to forgive. I like this about myself.
(6) That being said, there is a line you can cross and karma is a bitch.
(7) I can quote Shakespeare and Dumb and Dumber.
(8) Much like Ross on Friends, I will correct your grammar while we are having a conversation. I'm sorry. I know it's annoying, but I really can't stop.
(9) I am a daydreamer. A bad daydreamer. Well, maybe that's a good thing.
(10) Starting May 1st, I'd like to be more vigilant about my health.
(11) It has to be May 1st because we are living between two apartments right now and everything is a little chaotic.
(12) I'm moving!
(13) I believe that a good, I mean really good, dirty martini is sometimes all you need.
(14) I believe I will start writing letters again. Who doesn't love to get mail?
(15) I believe I will starting writing again in general. I have missed it so much.
