When I was at Michigan, I was that typical college student that they talk about being irresponsible with credit cards. I know that to some people that might be a shock because I tend to be a relatively responsible person. But I was away from home and it was really easy to rack up the bills on the credit card and just pay the minimums every month (if that).

So there is this sweet girl who sent out an email to the class of 2011 at the law school. She wanted to make a club for the Wives of the 1L students. Which makes sense to me because I rarely see Cassie, I were her husband (or something like that) she might feel a little left out or lonely. So I can see how a club for the wives of law students would be awesome.
The way she worded the email set of a fire storm at school. We have this Open Forum which is basically people just talking and ranting on stuff...somehow her message got on the open forum and people have been going crazy. I think that it is a completely respectable idea and would be a great support for anyone who is feeling a little but left out...
It did make me think about my own values, which have been challenged a lot lately, by myself and others.
I believe that I am an integral part of society and my worth is not based on whether or not I am married. Being married for time and eternity is very important to me but it does not consume my life, nor will it when I am married. I believe that a husband and wife BOTH bring things to a marriage and they should be equally respected (it says this in the Book of Mormon, Bible and D&C!).
When I have children it is going to be a hard decision for me and will be based on what is best for my family but I am not opposed to going back to work and have my husband stay home or vice versa. I do not want a nanny running my children's lives and I will be a large (or the entire) part of my children's lives, because that is as important to their well-being as it is mine.
Women who chose to stay home should be respected for their decision. Being a stay at home mom is one of the hardest jobs that exists! Ultimately, I would love to be a stay at home mom, but if that is not what is best for me or my family, I will not sacrifice my good paying job as an attorney to stay at home--just because I really want to.
Anyway, that is what is going on in law school today! Hope everyone else is having a great day!

So I've been in law school for almost a month and I really really love it! Things are going really well and I'm loving being in school again. It has been really tiring becuase I am not used to having to use my brain for anything, but now I'm using it all day so it makes me more tired.
I do make sure that I make time for the other things in life. I like going to FHE and talking about things other than law school (even if its the LSAT with Steve and Loren!). We went on a really great hike tonight, not too steep and hard but it was fun to climb around the rocks. We saw Donut Falls and just hung out and chatted...
I got my haircut last Friday and I love it! Here is a picture of it:
That's all I've got for now!!
Hope everyone has a great week!!

It seems like I have been meeting with the missionaries forever. Last Wednesday was my last appointment with them! It was a great lesson and I am so thankful for having them in my life to teach me about the Gospel. They are amazing young men and are going to finish out their missions and be great successful people and wonderful members of the Church.

I get a daily email with "inspirational" quotes from MyDailyInsights.com and they have had some pretty good ones lately that I thought I would share!:

This past weekend I went to St George with some friends and we had an amazing time! It really was something that I needed in my life. We left Friday night and got down to Nicole's parent's condo/house around midnight.
