Gonna Have The Whole World on a Plate

We are swiftly approaching July which marks my final month in Atlanta. I have lived here for seven years and I think the world of it. You’ve got city, you’ve got country, you’ve got trees and parks and Ted Turner. When my mom and I first visited seven years ago, she peered out the plane window as we landed and said in her thick New York accent: “Look how LUSH it is Adam! Atlanta is so lush.”

Very true, and I will miss it. But God help me if someone doesn’t get me to New York STAT.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about New York. It feels like I’ve always meant to move there but something’s gotten in the way. College. Law School. Ted Turner.

And now that I’m headed there, I can’t stop thinking about it. When I’m trapped in the flourescent BarBri nightmare each morning, my mind whisks me away to the busy city streets with life sprawling all around. I can barely contain my excitement.

But the purpose of this post is to get YOU excited. Look, I’ll confess, this blog has sucked a lot these past few weeks and will continue to suck until the bar is over. I’m scrounging for material here. For crying out loud, last night I wrote about POOP. Do you see how low I’ve sunk?

Come August, however, there will be so much fodder for this blog I won’t even know where to begin. Aren’t you excited to have me in New York? You should be. Endless exploring and so many new characters–it should be a marvelous adventure. So let’s suffer a few more weeks of non-relevance and grow more and more excited about the blogging ahead. Take it away, Ethel:

Now’s your inning. Stand the world on it’s ear!

Set it spinning! That’ll be just the beginning!

Curtain up! Light the lights!

You got nothing to hit but the heights!

You’ll be swell. You’ll be great.

I can tell. Just you wait.

That lucky star I talk about is due!

Honey, everything’s coming up roses for me and for you!

  1. I just discovered your blog, and I’ve been enjoying reading it on my breaks from…(drumroll please)…studying for the bar exam. So I just wanted to say thanks for the great reads and good luck on your exam!

  2. A. G. – well at least we now have a timetable for your departure. And just when you were becoming famous. We in Atlanta will miss your blog’s local color. Heck, we can read about NYC anytime on countless blogs, so at least think about handing off the torch or the wooden spoon to someone here? Hmm? Whatever. Suppose I’ll save the send-off for a future tirade.
