First Day of the LAST Semester!

    So, what does a girl starting her first day of the last semester of schooling wear?  Today, at least, something warm.  I woke up this morning to 17F.  That's a good 15-20 degrees Fahrenheit colder than average for this time of year.   It's just plain cold.
    Today I went for something a bit daring.  Yes, leopard print is daring for law school.  Luckily the leopard print has  been toned down by being black and gray spots on a white background rather than the normal black, tans and browns.  But to give this top more pop, it has silver thread throughout the top.  I got this right before my shopping ban when I went to the mall with The Fiance.  To my surprise I found this at Express when they were doing their box sale.  It was further reduced and I paid something like $9 for it.   I'm quite happy with it even though its probably a bit longer than I would like.  I'll probably shorten it, but that's not a big deal for such a cute top.  
    To keep warm I layered this blue 3/4 sleeve cardigan over the leopard print.  It further toned down the leopard print, but also made the print stand out some as it was the center of attention amidst the blue of the cardigan and jeans.  I added the necklace Melanie gave me and my new favorite turquoise sueded flats.  
    Now on to the school stuff.  Today was the first day of my last semester of school, unless something unexpected happens.  I am very excited and ready for this.  Normally I get nervous and can't sleep the night before my first day.  Last night, however, I slept really well and woke up ready.  I really feel like I'm in the right place at the right time.  I'm not sure where this confidence came from, but there it is. 
    On a more mundane note, I'm waiting to see if I'll get in off the waitlist to a Mediation class.  If I take the class it would fulfill part of the requirement to become a certified mediator.  It would also look REALLY REALLY GOOD on my resume.  So, keep your fingers crossed and hopefully I'll get in off the waitlist.  If I don't make it, then I'm probably going to have to take Bankruptcy, which although useful, wouldn't be what I want.  Anybody else starting off classes this week?  How have you decided to face the new semester?  Do you get nervous too?
