"And even if they don’t find what they’re looking for, isn’t it enough to be out walking together in the sunlight?"
Beautiful Ruins, Jess Walter
Perhaps the best part about my clerkship is having the time to read for fun. I’ve inhaled books since the bar exam era ended, and tonight I just finished another. This book was wonderful! I found it and didn’t realize how beautifully it would pair two things I love: movie-making and Italy.

Dutch cell service puts a little NL where AT&T would be atop your phone border. Thought this was for “Netherlands,” but now that I was awake for 32 hours to travel and tourist, then slept for 13, I think it is actually for No Limits.
Related pro tip: don’t land somewhere at 7:30 am (1:30 am in your body) and plan to power nap before starting your first day in Amsterdam unless you also plan to stay in a hostel where rooms will be ready by 7:30 am. We arrived with bleary eyes, and then learned we were going to have to just power through the day until the room was ready. The room would’ve been ready by lunch, but it was clear we’d be down for the count once we stopped moving (we’re shark travelers). Thank goodness for espresso, an interesting Sandeman’s walking tour, and a fun travel buddy! We zombied through the city on our first day and had a blast.
