Monday Updates 11/16/09

Good morning!

Weekend: this weekend was so much fun -

Juls & Andy flew down on Saturday morning to go to the USC-Stanford game with us!

After the game (where our team beat SC by 34 points!), we hung out until they left on Sunday morning to drive up the coast back to San Francisco. Curtis and I decided to do a short trip to the beach, where the weather was perfect.

Law School: As of today I am done with moot court for the semester, and I'm relieved. I find out on Wednesday whether my performances during the preliminary rounds qualified me for the quarterfinals. I really don't know what to think, but only 16 move on from 40, so there's no reason to be disappointed if I don't make it.

Update 11/18: I found out this morning that I did make the quarterfinals. My next round is in late-January :-)

The other news is that I will be a full-time judicial extern next semester! I will be working for Judge Reinhardt on the Ninth Circuit. I'm very excited about working full-time, the cabin fever has started to get to me. I'll have to take an extra class in the evening two days a week, but I'm really excited about next semester!

That's all for now. Have a good week!

Congratulations from the Obamas

You may recall here that we sent a wedding invitation to the Obamas. Well, we received a response! Here's a scan of the card we received:

I think it's a neat keepsake from our wedding, a way to mark the occasion in the context of what's going on in our country. Here's the address (courtesy of the knot)

The President and Mrs. Obama
