My underwear drawer is divided into the wear-on-a-date section and the wear-to-the-gym section. 'Nough said.

Your bras are sorted the same way, I take it?  :P

Of course!  ;D (I'm just picturing the combination of sports bra and lacy thong...) And I like my nice stuff to match.

Speaking of which: Victoria's Secret is having its semi-annual sale. Great deals if you're willing to dig through the bins and deal with women elbowing you out of the way.

There's a difference between hook-ups and dating. The former might be ill-advised in any small community, but to say, "You shouldn't date a fellow student" seems silly. You can pretty much guarantee that as soon as you tell yourself it's not convenient for you to have a relationship, you'll meet someone. You can't (and shouldn't) micromanage life that way.

Congrats Jacy!!

As for me: single, and hoping to meet some cute, smart, not-ultra-conservative guys at UGA. :)

Single and fit that description to a tee.. minus the cute part..  ;D

Hey now, give yourself some credit. :) And glad to hear you're not a neo-con. :) (Help, I'm being overrun by emoticons!)


I was actually really worried about running into a ton of neocons as well.. Im from the south, but my mother is from the northeast and my father is British, so I grew up with a bit of a different outlook than most of my friends growing up in KY.. But, I know what the bible belt is all about.. I loved living in New Orleans and I thought I'd love D.C. because the people are more progressive, but I really miss the whole southern hospitality thang (im a bit sick of the rat race lifestyle).  Anyway, Ive talked to a few people about this and I think we'll both be pleasantly surprised by the make-up of the UGA student body.

And, by the way, staying at work late SUCKS!!

I, too, grew up in the South (but in Atlanta, and I went to a progressive school, so it doesn't really count). The hospitality is great, and it's not just a cliche. And I think you're right about the UGA Law student body. Plus, Athens is a pretty liberal town.

MAN.. what a change from D.C..

Not sure Im ready to go to such a small place.. Completely a college town, but also completely a cool place.. After the trip, I think I've decided its the place I want to be.  I can afford to buy a house, the law school facilities are on a beautiful part of campus, the downtown area (if you can call it that) is pretty hip, and everything is CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP... The realestate agent I was with forgot to feed a meter downtown and I offered to go back and throw some quarters in for her.. and she said "dont worry about it, its only 3 bucks".. A parking ticket for 3 bucks!! are you kidding me!?!?  I went out to a show and had a few beers later that night and spent less than 15 bucks.. You cant even get two drinks in D.C. for that much!

The students also seemed a lot more diverse than I had expected.. Dont get me wrong, its still the bible belt, but the students I saw milling around campus seemed pretty cool.. Great music, and great bars.. For a little more culture/sophistication you'd probably have to head to Atlanta, but that is only 1.5 hrs. away. 

Also, I spoke with a recent grad of Emory who works at a BIGLAW firm in Atlanta (pulling in over 100k) and she assured me that if she had to do it all over again she would have gone to UGA.. She said that the people she works with that graduated from UGA had a much more enjoyable 3 years than herself.. So.. Im feeling pretty good about UGA..

Hit me with any Athens questions you like..

Glad you enjoyed Athens. It's a cool little town, and Atlanta is very easily accessible if you want a bigger city. You'll also be amazed how much cheaper Atlanta is than DC (certainly not as cheap as Athens, but as a medium-sized city cost of living is pretty low). I lived in New York for two years after college, and after getting used to Atlanta prices again, I'm always shocked when I visit friends back in NYC.

And I wouldn't worry too much about the Bible belt. Athens is pretty liberal as small Southern towns go, and Atlanta is populated with a bunch of transplanted Northerners and other non-Bible-belt types. You still get somewhat of a fratty scene in Athens, but I've also heard you can easily find alternative options.

As for GT, my baby brother goes there (and is doing phenomenally well in his mechanical engineering degree). He has a very attractive girlfriend there, but they were together before they started college, so it doesn't really count. However, he'll very likely graduate from college with a high-paying job and very little debt, which is much more than I can say of my New England liberal arts college experience...

Actually, the ABA does offer an optional add-on for major illness/injury, which I think covers up to $200,000 or so in major medical expenses.

And you're right: the pill is generally inexpensive, even w/o a copay, but on a more general level I like the comfort of having a decent health insurance plan should anything unexpected happen.

So I've been checking out the student health insurance plan offered by my law school versus the one offered by the ABA. I noticed that the one offered by my school does NOT offer copays for birth control pills. So annoying. Luckily, the ABA one does offer copays for the pill.

Just a notice for the women out there who might be interested in such coverage to read the fine print carefully before choosing a plan.
