I think I threw up in my mouth a little...



Yes yes yes! I'm madly in love with my boyfriend- we met when I was 15 and it was love at first sight, but for various reasons we didnt start dating until I was 18. We have been through years of short distance (Boston to the suburbs of MA) and long distance (Boston to Spain) dating, the inevitable life changes that come with growing up/going to college/getting your first real job, the diagnosis of his father with Parkinsons disease, etc.- and I can honestly say, 6 years later, that I love him more than ever.  ;D

To be so idealistic and optimistic about love isn't really in line with my personality- I'm hugely sarcastic and always tell it like it is. I really think, however, that people who don't believe in love just haven't found the right person.

Awww, come on- don't hate. I don't normally go around shouting it out from the rooftops, but this is what the thread is about!

As for me it's a resounding YES!!! I'm not currently in love or in a relationship, but I do appreciate the concept. I've done the whole single bachelor deal, and when I was a practicing athlete I've experienced the insane attention you get as a by-product. With that being said nothing beats the feeling of being so in tune with and feeling the person your with. Milestones achieved when you have someone to share them with are that much more sweet.

I'm not in a rush to find love again, I'll just continue on self-improvement until the opportunity presents itself.

So what is your take on love?

puedo hablar contigo en espanol... si quieres hablar   8)

Yo tambien!!! Llevo casi 14 anos estudiando el castellano, y vivi en Madrid por un ano- uso "vosotros" porque vivi con gemelas en Madrid, que tenian 12 anos, y identificaron mas o menos como una sola persona!  ;D

me encanta hablar en espanol, y me alegro hacerlo.

First real boyfriend graduated from a good college, works as an accountant at a top national accounting firm and owns a house in RI.

He was a tool.

Those two things seem to go hand-in-hand... ;)

Hahahaha...watch it, both of my parents are CPAs, and they're great!!!  ;D

Second real boyfriend went to Columbia undergrad, but I'm not sure what he's up to now. He was a major hippie and an incredible musician, so it would be interesting to know.

Still with my third real boyfriend! 6 years and counting.

I really want to get to Chile and Argentina...but not sure if it will happen this summer.  :-\

I highly recommend Peru for people who like backpacking. Incredible hiking, the Inca trail is the coolest, and there's tons to see- Lake Titicaca and all of the floating villages, Machu Picchu, the rainforest and all the great small towns inbetween. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Spain b/c I lived there for a year, but it's not the best for people who don't have a working knowledge of Spanish- a higher percentage of the population doesn't speak English than the rest of Europe for some reason.

Law School Applications / Re: If I Were You I Would...

Have you had any experience traveling around Europe, on whim, or anything similar?

Not really.  There's a better return on your money if you just drink at home.  Same concept with going to a bar or a club.  You don't need the Thames or the Seine or the Rhine to enjoy some beer or wine or spirits. 

Aren't you the same person who came on here asking for how to improve your lifestyle before law school because you're obese and hypertensive? I hate to be rude, but it doesn't seem like you had your priorities straight until recently.

I worked in Japan for 2 years and traveled quite a bit during that time. It was frustrating at times, but probably one of the best and most enlightening experiences of my life. Traveling also gives you a chance to see how lucky we are as Americans.

What does being a bit heavy have to do with the concept of travel?  I guess everything I say is false because I don't have a BMI below 25.0.  Get a life.

By the way, traveling is still a big waste of time/money.  Work.  Gain some real perspective.  As for being lucky in America... ha!  There are folks just as unfortunate here in the US as elsewhere.  If you're going to help someone, you should help some people here at home.  At least then your genuinely helping because you want to help, as opposed to use it as a chance to "travel."

These are the most ridiculous statement ever. Travelling is NOT a waste of time/money, and the above is such an insular view of the way the world works...

I say you travel travel travel travel....and while you're travelling, volunteer. I have friends who did medical missions, worked in orphanages, did environmental work, etc. while travelling around Africa, Asia and South America. Travelling by yourself will help you grow up more than you realize, will force you to become more independent than you already are, and will let you meet an amazing range of people. There is nothing better than travelling, in my opinion- just avoid being an obnoxious American tourist while you do it.

Also, there's nothing stopping you from also doing some travelling within the US and doing volunteer work as part of your world-wide trip. The US is part of the global community, after all.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Strange Topic of Tattoos

I have a couple of piercings, but the only one that's visible is my nostril.  I wear a tiny diamond stud, so a lot of people don't even notice it, but it'll be interesting to see what reaction (if any) I get through OCI.  It was never an issue at all in my professional life, but (as others have noted) firms are pretty conservative. 

I must say, I love tats (there's nothing sexier in my book than a beautiful man covered in beautiful ink) but haven't gotten my first one yet.  If and when, those are going to be VERY strategically placed. 

I have a co-worker with a nose ring- a small diamond stud, you barely notice it. Didn't stop her from getting her job!

ha ha, i just got my first tattoo last Fri...being that law school is on the horizon, i got it in a discreet place....but i've worked in two big time hospitals and i have see docs with visible tats (one lady had them on her foot)

Interesting...any strange looks at the docs?

I personally sharply disagree with tattoos, however, I would hope that with proper professional attire, that tattoos would not be that much of an issue. 


Guys or ladies, if you got that sleve back in UG, that's what they have long-sleeve shirts for.  For ladies, if you got that awesome dolphin down the leg, there's always pants.

Sure, but what about if a guy had one on his hand or neck?  Or if a girl had one on her calf or ankle?  She most likely wouldn't wear pants or long skirts every day of her professional life?  Or maybe she would (don't really know).

A girl at my law firm had  tattoos on her forearms- had to wear long sleeves every day, even in the broiling heat. She said she regretted getting them...but then again, who gets a tattoo on their forearm!

I've seen all sorts of things.  There's a teller at the bank that I work at who has her name tatted on her neck.   SMH.

Interesting...was she afraid she'd forget it?  ;)

J has his little fitness thread around here somewhere, but yeah I try to lift or run everyday.  I'm trying to shed some fat right now.  It is hard because I'm used to eating so much. 

well right now im trying a new thing where I eat whatever i want, but do a crazy amount of cardio each week (5-6x a week), and i seem to still be losing more fat.  You really need to cut down on the eating though, or just switch to eating healthier foods and eat the same amount. Eating better makes a huge difference, you could probably not lift or run at all but just change your diet and notice a huge difference.

I do this too! Life is too short to be on a diet. I enjoy my food (I'm a vegetarian and eat pretty healty, but also have no issues with indulging in meals out and dessert), and work out 5 times a week. It's definitely worked for me- I'm one of the few girls from my town who still weighs the same as I did in high school and didn't pack on the pounds in college!

The key is to find something active that you enjoy, and not to get stuck in a routine rut cause you'll burn out and stop exercising. I try to switch it up with biking, hiking, the standard stuff at the gym, swimming and lifting.
