I don't think I've been to a county fair in at least 2 decades. But Mom, Dad and I are going to the Santa Barbara County Fair in Santa Maria on Saturday to see The Beach Boys! It will be an interesting experience to say the least. I'll bring my camera and take all sorts of weird pictures. I'm looking forward to this I want to eat deep fried things that shouldn't be deep fried. And see cows and shit.

I'm sitting here in my new apartment, lamenting the fact that I have no DSL until Wednesday and no channel on the TV but CBS until the dish guy comes on Saturday. Then an idea hit me - I have my parents' laptop for when I go back to school in a few weeks, and it has a wireless network card. I thought to myself, "Let's just spark it up and see what happens." And wouldn't you know it, but there's an unsecured network in my neighborhood! So I have slow internet, but it's still internet. I am so happy. I'll only log in here. No e-mail or banking. If they want to read my blog, so be it.

I'm all moved in, but I have to unpack everything still. But the cats are here now, away from my mother's two harpies...they are de-stressing. But I get to sleep in my own bed tonight. Blissful sleep. I am so tired. But happy for it to almost be done.

So I have this job interview on Wednesday morning in Santa Barbara. Since part of this job is sales, I want to look good. So I went and bought some lipstick (don't laugh) and I thought the pores in my nose and on my chin looked a bit clogged. So, for the first time in my life, I bought a combo pack of those Biore strips - some for the face and some for the nose. 15 minutes ago I slapped them on my face, and just removed them.

OH MY GOD! I pulled the most foul yet intriguing oil "worms" out of my nose! There were hundreds of them! It was wonderful! I was full of rapture! I want to do this every day!

So, I'm happy. And my skin looks much better now.

18 Months!

I just went through the courses and I figured out I can complete my certificate program easily in 18 months!

I have to take 18 units of required and 18 units of electives - here's a hypothetical schedule (I only have class listings for the first 4 quarters; I improvised year 2 based on that:

Fall 2007:

FUNDAMENTALS OF PARALEGAL STUDIES (4 Units, Required)
CASE MANAGEMENT (2 Units, Required)
CIVIL LITIGATION I (3 Units, Required)

Winter 2007-2008:

LEGAL RESEARCH (4 Units, Required)
LEGAL WRITING AND COMMUNICATION (4 Units, Required)

Spring 2008:

CONTRACT LAW (3 Units, Elective)
ORGANIZING AND ANALYZING EVIDENCE (3 Units, Elective)

Summer 2008:

CRIMINAL LAW (3 Units, Elective)
TORT LAW FOR PARALEGALS (3 Units, Elective)

Fall 2008:

ETHICS FOR PARALEGALS (1 Unit, Required)
INTERVIEWING AND INVESTIGATIONS (3 Units, Elective)

Winter 2008-2009:

FAMILY LAW (3 Units, Elective)

and that's it! I found out that the paralegal internship is elective and I was glad it wasn't required because I can't afford an unpaid internship. I'll investigate as I get into the classes and see if they are paid, but they're only offered in Fall and it doesn't work with my schedule. I'll probably just take my chances going out and hitting the pavement once I get my certificate.

Anyway, I'm so excited! It's nice that I don't have to take it in 2 years and can get finished sooner.

Excellent.

And to be totally uncouth, I'm making baked chicken with rice. I know, I know, mixing poultry with red is trashy, but I don't have any white. Fuck it.

I can't wait to move to the Central Coast. I'm going to make a point to go to every winery within 100 miles. That will be a lot of fun.
