Some member of the ACS group did a little fieldtrip to the Supreme Court of the United States to hear oral arguments and meet Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The oral arguments were for the cases U.S. v. Rita and U.S. v. Claiborne. They are both about sentencing guidelines. This was my second time sitting in on oral arguments, as I visited the court when I was an undergraduate at George Washington University.
Meeting Justice Ginsburg was especially wonderful and she told us a number of stories including about the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Such a wonderful experience.
Barrister's Ball is the law school formal dance held every February. Kevin and I went with a group of friends. We had a nice dinner at Vivace before. Then we drank and danced the night away at the Omni Hotel. The decorations this year were so nice.
For Valentine's Day on Wednesday, Kevin took me for a nice dinner at Fellini's. Then Thursday a bunch of went to Mas to celebrate his birthday and Saturday was my law school prom so it's been a very busy and romantic week. More about the law school prom in the next post.
Big news too! Kevin and are subletting an apartment in Brooklyn this summer! Jon went and checked out the apartment for us two weeks ago, and we signed a sublease and paid a deposit.
For Kevin's birthday last night, I sent out an Evite and a lot of our friends went to Mas to eat and drink and celebrate Kevin. Brady, Jinsoo, Timothy, Roger, Audra, Katy, Sarah, Kevin, and I went. We took up about half of the back section of the restaurant, and we had a lot of fun.
We had so much fun that I forgot to take any pictures apparently. Here's the most recent one of me and Kevin I really like.
We went to another Feb Club Party! Woo! After Katy's birthday dinner, we went a combined law school at an undergrad fraternity house with an "Old School" movie theme. Not sure if there were undergrads there or not. Good times though!
Sarah, me, and Audra at a fraternity party. Probably my last ever.
