I love that Dave Matthews' song! Anyway, as the title indicates, there is a quite a bit to blog about since the last entry! So, here goes...
I had a pretty good week at work. First, on Wednesday I argued my first motion all by my little self, and what do you know? We won!!! And, it was a surprise, since the other attorney on the case and I thought our chances were quite slim. So, it was an especially happy victory. I joked to my secretary that I'd like my business cards reprinted to say "won every motion argued." She almost threw something at me. :)
Thursday, I defended a depo right by my house, so I didn't even have to brave a commute! After, I met up with Jackie and Kristen to hear all about their fabulous 2-week trip to Australia!
Friday morning, I arrived at a client's warehouse in Riverside at 2:30 a.m. to do interviews of folks who work the night shift. I went into my office around 7:00 a.m., and the day itself was pretty uneventful, except for one major item of note. I received my first, annual performance review. The feedback was very positive and was accompanied by a generous bonus. I was very happy (and relieved)!
After my long day, I came home, ordered pizza with Josh, and passed out at 9 p.m. I didn't wake up yesterday morning until 12 p.m.! 15 hours of sleep! Pretty impressive, I think.
Last night, we went and saw "Definitely, Maybe." I thought it was cute, and Ryan Reynolds is so dreamy.
But, perhaps the most exciting news of all is that Josh and I booked plane flights for our trip in June!! We are going to China for ten days!!! Our plan is to fly into Beijing and out of Shanghai. There may be a couple detours (perhaps to Xi'an to see the Terracotta Warriors), but other than that, we have yet to plan out the details. Ten days will be awfully quick (not enough time to do Western China and Tibet, which I really wanted to do), but I will take what I can get! (Josh and I have agreed we will have to return someday and devote an entire trip to Tibet.) We considered booking a tour, but I think we have now decided that we are going to do it on our own. I am so excited!!!!! I couldn't sleep a wink last night!
