Dizzying

What a dizzying day. Class is back in session and it is always strange to go from a summer of no classes to a day with 4 classes. A little overwhelming at first, buying the books, figuring out where to be at what time since you dont know your schedule yet, finding and doing your reading… Then after a few minutes you realize, eh, its the same ol same ol.
Today was especially dizzying though. Just got back from a cruise and I don’t actually have my land legs back, so all day I felt like I was on a rocking ship – dizzy!

Help my friends win their dream wedding!!

For those of you in SoCal, I’m sure you have heard that KIIS FM is letting couple compete to win their dream wedding.  As soon as I heard about it, I wondered if any of the soon to be married couples I knew were going to make their couples page and compete to win.  Not long after the contest started accepting entries I heard that a good friend of mine from law school, Nick, and his fiance have entered! Take a few minutes and help win by just visiting their couple’s page: http://vipnetwork.kiisfm.com/future_looks.  Leaving comments (either on the page, pictures or blogs) also gives them extra points towards winning, so they are definitely welcome [but you must become a KIIS VIP member (see instructions at the bottom of this post for that)].

A quick background on Nick and his fiance Jess, how I know them, and why you should visit their page and help them win:

Nick is one of my friends from Law School, and aside from being Canadian, he’s a really great guy.  Easy going, always nice, not like the usual douche bags you come across in law school…Sincerely a great guy.

Last February, he proposed to his girlfriend of almost 2 years.  The way they met and their relationship developed is a great story.  Back in the ’70s, both Nick and Jessica’s parents — no, not the same “Nick and Jessica” from TV — worked at Xerox.  Their families became great friends, and kept in close contact throughout the ’80s and early ’90s.  In 1996, however, Nick’s family moved to California (if you ask me, it was a good move, but you know, put a small bump in the development of a great relationship).  Although, their dad’s remained in contact, 1996 was the last time either family had seen each other.  Nearly 10 years later, Nick was working full time in southern California, and Jessica was finishing up her last year of University in Hawaii.  While on her last Christmas break of undergrad, Jessica and her parents decided to take a two-week vacation in California (maybe we should call this “when the stars aligned”).  Jessica’s dad called up a long lost friend — Nick’s dad — and arranged for the two families to meet up for dinner.  Neither Jessica nor Nick knew that the other was going to be there, and both had only vague memories of each other. However, when Nick walked into the room to greet “the St. James family,” he saw Jess, and it was love at first sight.  They chatted all night long and arranged to meet up the next day, which was Jess’s last day in California.  The next night they had an amazing date but a very tearful goodbye when the night ended — Jess was going back to Hawaii … for good.  However, Nick and Jess remained in contact throughout the following months, and later that Summer, Jessica decided to attended Pepperdine University to get her Masters in Education (which happens to be where Nick and I go to law school, I know, you’re shocked).  Now, Nick is finishing up Law School and Jessica is starting her 2nd year of teaching High School Biology.  They are, of course, still madly in love, and still in shock that they managed to find each other after all those years.  I should probably add that they are absolutely adorable together…  Really.

Anyway, after Nick proposed, Jess accepted, and they started planning their wedding, they heard about the KIIS FM wedding contest.  They have an amazing back story and really deserve to have a beautiful wedding that they wouldn’t be able to give themselves on the budget of a law student and high school teacher.  The way it works is each couple creates a “couple’s page” and detail why THEY are the “perfect couple.”  Nick and Jess have made their page and would really appreciate your support.  They have until the 29th to get as much page activity as possible to wow the judges. So GO TO their couple’s page: http://vipnetwork.kiisfm.com/future_looks.  If you want to go the extra mile… LEAVE COMMENTS!!

After the 29th, the judges will announce between 10 and 20 finalists.  Then the voting period begins.  Lets hope they make it so I can let you guys know to vote daily!!

Thanks a lot everybody.  Your support is much appreciate by both myself and Nick and Jess.

Son of an Astronaut

Has anyone else noticed how they have repeatedly mentioned to us that the USA gymnast Justin Spring is the son of an astronaut?  The thing is, every time they say it, it sounds like its an expletive.  Watch for it.

Three things:

  1. I’m sick, it blows.
  2. It is incredibly hot out today.
  3. I hate people who drive slow in the fast lane.  Slow being defined as at or below the speed limit.  You have 4 other lanes, drive slow in those ones!

Safety

In light of the recent earthquakes I have been thinking of the safety of the areas I am in on a daily basis.  You know, school, work, home, friends homes… These days I feel as though people are more prepared for earthquakes and such.  Post Northridge earthquake it seems as though organizations have done more to be prepared for emergencies.  Adding supports to buildings, being more aware of the types of damage which may be caused, and some places are creating emergency plans, like a school safety plan.

I’m not certain how these can be adapted for the home, but it is likely best to read up on earthquake tips and follow them.  These tips include adding special valves (which shut off gas during an earthquake), using earthquake straps to secure your water heater, bolting all large furniture and book cases to walls, and familiarizing yourself with good earthquake practices (don’t try running around, you’ll fall and hurt yourself).

Hopefully the big one won’t be soon so we won’t have to test these out.

So I know why my blog dropped in search ranks….

A few days ago I mentioned that my blog had dropped in search result rankings and I wasn’t sure why.  Well, now I know.  My blog had been attacked by a malicious link injector.  I had upgraded my wordpress to overcome this but the upgrade did not remove the code in my template files!  I just cleared all of it up and hope this fixes my problem…

Should my blog be more focused

Every guide I read to blogging advises that you find a niche, focus on it, and keep that focus throughout your posts.  Unfortunately, this is a step I have not taken.  I post jokes, tips and tricks for your pc, things about law school, about bloging, among other things.  Sometimes, like right now, I wonder if it would have been wise to take on a focus or if i should take one on now.

An example of some focused blogs include Gizmodo, Lifehacker, PerezHilton, and on the legal end something like the blog this NJ Elder Law Attorney has (discussing elder law, family law, and estate planning).  Being a law student I could write about topics such as the NJ Elder Law Attorney has written about “Social Security Administration Links with Special Emphasis on SSI and Special Needs Trusts,” divorce mediations, and negotiations.  His blog is a great resource on family law, elder law, dispute reolution in these areas, and estate planing.  Take a look.  All of these are great focused blogs, but I just don’t think taking on a focus like this would be right for me.  I’d likely lose my drive to post, making what used to be a fun hobby a chore.

In the end, I say just have fun with your blog!
