Well, maybe not perfect; I can think of a few faces I would have loved to see. But as summers go, it was truly wonderful. I'm not sure I have ever really appreciated a summer break as much as I did this year. Perhaps more so now, looking back as I burrow deeper, and deeper into the cold, dark, reeking, endless tunnel that is the 2L year. Side note: as that is my assessment one month in, I can only assume that things will be looking up soon...or at least by May. So as your neglectful blog author, short on time (mine) and attention span (yours), I simply offer some of my favorite photos of the summer, and a promise to be a better chronicler in future...
PS: not all of these photos are mine...sorry friends for taking without asking. I'll be sure to credit you if anyone comes calling!
Various Summer Fun: Me and SalmonPants together at last, thanks to Patrice!; finally our own Washoe board (Carrie and I are sharing joint custody); playing said washoes with Colleen; delicious 4th of July barbeque; The AZ parents in kayaks, on Lake Union, in front of the Space Needle; and me with a PBR in my back pocket...classy!
Harry Potter 7.2: The end of an era.
Warrior Dash: Carrie and my legs after the mudpit; Wendy and her warrior clan.
Finally finished with 1L year: Debbie and I float off on the water taxi for pizza and illegally consumed beverages in Alki. Nothing like breaking a few city ordinances to say, "Fuck you!" to the first year of law school
Shi Shi Beach Backpacking trip: Me, the seastar scavenger, and Trish the coffee/firepit maven, plus some pretty amazing scenery
Guatemala: It's hard to summarize this magical trip. So that's all I will say, it was magical.
