week in review.

8 Apr

This has been quite the week! While I delay preparing for my (ungraded) oral argument, I thought I’d prep my overview of the last week’s non-school related adventures…

On Wednesday, I hit up a great, new-to-me place in Silverlake with some law school friends for dinner: Mohawk Bend. I first heard about this place from Katherine when we met in February, and it’s been on my list of must-trys ever since. When the waiter explained they had over 30 California beers on tap, I knew I wouldn’t be let down. I was even more elated when they had my VERY favorite beer on tap – the Cheseboro IPA from Ladyface Ale Companie in Agoura Hills!


I was also feeling like indulging my IPA-obsession and selected the IPA-battered avocado and chips for my entree. Weird, but sinfully good.

After dinner, we headed to the Silverlake Lounge for the FIRST! Comedy Show featuring a variety of comics, including Aviva’s college roommate Kyle Mizono, who I saw perform stand-up back in January at The Comedy Store and thought was hilarious. She was equally funny this time around, and I enjoyed several of the other comedians. Definitely need to keep going to shows like this. Laughing is the best.

Since we didn’t have school on Friday, Thursday afternoon called for a much-needed post-Torts beer. Blake, Armita, and I headed to LA Live and ended up grubbing at ESPN Zone. I sipped on a Hef and a chicken ceasar wrap (with a side of ceasar salad). I know, I was taking the theme pretty seriously.

Friday involved malibu and mimosas and then a Passover Seder at Aviva’s. I’ve celebrated Passover a few times before (including the time freshman year of high school when I spilled my tiny glass of grape juice not once, but three separate times on my friend’s white tablecloth. Cool). I found the Afikomen which was fun, and enjoyed experiencing the Seder. But more than anything, I enjoyed the charoset.

Saturday was gorgeous out so I studied a bunch outside at a local Starbucks, and I went home post-gym on Sunday for some family time and, of course, the traditional Easter meal [sarcasm] at Natural Cafe.


Andddd in case you couldn’t get through the week without knowing my workouts, here ya go:

Monday: Pure Barre
Tuesday: Spin, NROLFW 1B
Wednesday: Pure Barre + 3 mi. run
Thursday: Yoga (Foundations taught by Lori Steele)
Friday: 5.5 mile run
Saturday: Pure Barre + 4 mi run
Sunday: Spin + NROLFW 1A

I’m happy with how my workouts went last week – mixing it up and cross-training a lot. This week I want to incorporate in more yoga and make sure I am foam rolling and stretching as much as possible. I’m obviously also hoping putting it into writing holds me accountable.

And rounding out this hodge-podge of a post, here’s some links to kick off your week.

Right now I’m catching up on Amazing Race – and Monday morning will begin with a little Pure Barre action, followed by all-day preparation for my first Oral Argument (basically a presentation of my final brief for my legal writing class).

How are you kicking off this week?
