8 Things (Matt)

Okay... Even though Cori has already completed her list of 8 Things, Mary Claire (bridezillastrikesback.blogspot.com) still found it necessary to tag me in her list... So here I go:

8 Things I Look Forward To (In No Particular Order):
1. Closing Day (May 29) and Moving Day (May 30)
2. Cori's next OB appointment - so we can find out whether the hematoma is gone (May 26)
3. Finishing the Bar Exam
4. Our much-anticipated week-long vacation to Puerto Vallarta
5. Finding out that I passed the Bar
6. Receiving my first salaried paycheck
7. The birth of our little Peanut
8. Paying off our mortgage, car loan, and student loans (I hate debt!)

8 Things I Did Yesterday (Monday, May 18, 2009):
1. Took Cooper on a 1.4 mile jog (which is the farthest he's ever gone)
2. Shared the last piece of my graduation cake with Cori
3. Endured 3.5 hours of Torts lecture in my Kaplan Bar Review Course
4. Read two chapters from a book that has absolutely nothing to do with the law (Digital Fortress by Dan Brown)
5. Read 45 pages of Torts outlines
6. Scheduled a final walkthrough of our soon-to-be house to make sure the sellers repaired/replaced everything they were supposed to
7. Gave Cooper a bath
8. Watched a cake designer whom I know from Springdale win a Food Network Challenge

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:
1. Get a law license without having to take the Bar Exam
2. Have sex with my wife (damn hematoma!)
3. Play guitar like Brad Paisley
4. Lose weight as easily as I used to
5. Spend one week a month at an all-inclusive resort (a different resort each month, of course!)
6. Housebreak Cooper before we move into our new house
7. Speed-read with total comprehension
8. Get perfect vision without having that laser eye surgery

8 Shows I Watch:
1. Scrubs
2. So You Think You Can Dance?
3. Grey's Anatomy
4. Fringe
5. Lie to Me
6. American Idol
7. Private Practice

Now that I have completed my 8 Things, I'm supposed to tag eight other bloggers and force them to endure the same fate as was bestowed upon me by Mary Claire. I'm not going to (he says, as the skies darken and the lightning strikes). The only people that I know on blogspot are (1) the people Cori tagged a couple weeks ago when she did this, (2) the person who tagged me, and (3) the people Mary Claire tagged. So... Sorry, the chain ends here. Hope you enjoy my post, though!

Hey, it is only fair that you fill it out, too. Thank you for the minutes of procrastination you provided!!! Hopefully I still count as your "best law school friend" :)

Lilly, Matt, and Sara said...

Again, am I unknown?? Are we not friends?? I probably wouldn't have filled it out....but it is nice to be thought of!!! Congrats on graduation...Rats on no nookie. Haha.

Sorry, Sara! I assumed Cori had made you do this a couple weeks ago!!!
