escaping words ... from my brain

This is where my procrastination-induced and complaint-filled entries lived while I was studying for the bar. Now, I suppose, it's a random space where shorter posts will hang out, eat snacks, and talk about me behind my back.


Writings that take more time will live at my regular blog at escaping words.

Happy lunar new year!

Man, how is it already 4709 or whatever? Well, any reason to eat dumplings!

I almost thought my fam didn’t do anything to usher in the Year of the Dragon but then I realized we ate some dumplings that my mom made. And I helped! By which I mean, I helped make like 10 out of the many more before I got shooed away.

Kids in Tenafly, NJ got Monday off! Nice! I remember back in high school we had CKNY - “Chinese Korean New Year”. Yes, the model of inclusion and coolness.

My lunar zodiac animal sign thing is the Dog, which doesn’t get along with the Dragon. I hope this doesn’t mean 4709 isn’t a year to party like it’s 1999. 

Here is a korean recipe for dumplings that looks good and the pics of the li’l dumps are so cute!
