Anyway, HAPPY 2014!!! In honor of the new(ish) year, here are Kate’s 14 Things for 2014.

Salted Caramel Pretzel Ice Cream

Today (and pretty much every day of my life lately) I settled into a booth at a coffee shop to feel increasingly bad about my intelligence study. (Like, I get that the Sample Answers to these practice questions are written by professionals with unlimited time and also access to law books. But also, it feels super terrible to miss half of what the Sample Answer brings up. So THANKS.)

Over the next few hours, I couldn’t believe people around me. They had the audacity to live and breathe and interact in my presence. What’s that even about?! I’M STUDYING OVER HERE.

This week has felt a little bit like the universe punched me in the stomach.

It’s entirely possible (probable) that this is not the case. But this is how I feel. And because self-pity is an emotion that I’m intimately familiar with, I’m just gonna stick with it.

Well… I’ve figured out where all the stuff I was complaining about last post comes from.

But in my last few days of apartment nesting, I’ve noticed that I maybe (totally) let myself buy whatever I want, using the emotional trauma and stress of moving as an excuse for that purchasing behavior.

Have you ever watched that show on TLC (or maybe A&E?) about hoarders?

Just like an hour of people being amazed at how much stuff someone can accumulate and fighting with them about how, no, they don’t actually need every newspaper printed since 1989?

Here’s a secret: I can’t bear to watch Hoarders because I’m terrified that I will become/already am one.

Swedish Visiting Cake

Oh, man. Last week, you guys.

Forgive our extended absence. It was hard to muster much of a positive attitude with all the crazy happening in the world. Joking about our complete inability to act like adults felt a bit inappropriate.

But! The week ended with a little bit of closure and with some good old fashioned heroics (of the law enforcement as well as normal people type). And now we’ve found some extra brain space to bring you some goodness!

By that I mean, this is Kate. Putting off studying for finals.
