Mrs. and Mrs.

About the blog: Mrs. and Mrs. tells the story of a couple of senior students currently at UCLA. As graduation looms around the corner, these ladies are beginning preparations to move on to graduate and professional schools. This new phase will bring a lot of sacrifices and sleepless nights, but they’re both excited at the prospect of something new.

Mrs. This One:ย Holy mother, I’m going to law school! Although it’s becoming more and more common for people to say this, I pride myself in being able to say that this isn’t my backup plan or something I’m doing as a way to become rich (you know, lawyers aren’t always rich). On the contrary, this is something I’m super passionate about because I believe we have rights and they need to be protected. That’s what I’m here for! I’m also a video game and books addict. I love riding a bicycle not knowing where I’m going to. And I love to make things more complicated than they really are.

Mrs. That One:ย Like my wife, I’m passionate about where I’m going: graduate school for Revolutionary Russian and Soviet History. I know, even my parents are like, “Why?” But I’ve loved it since I was in high school, and I can’t see myself doing anything else. For the next seven (or eight) years of my life, I’ll be studying to become a historian. And she is right, she does love to make things more complicated than they really are.

    Greetings from a fellow political science major (albeit recently graduated)
    Congratulations to you both, and my best wishes to you.
    You have a great blog!

    My husband and I married when we were 19 and 18, with obvious struggles. It has been 11 years of marriage…and we…with all the ups and downs have made it this far~but it might be because we don’t have kids or really in-laws HAHA. We were both criticized for marrying young too. Goooood luck! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Mrs. This One

      Wow, 11 years- good for you! We don’t have kids either (yet) but the in-laws are another story.

      School does present a lot of challenges but we’re trying to hang in there.

      Thank you for stopping by!

    I really love your number 11 on your 2011 goals.

    Hi MTO! Greetings from Malaysia. Well, to be honest, I am pretty impressed with you and your wife because you can get married albeit being students at UCLA. Even I cannot commit myself to such a huge responsibility! Haha. Anyways, good luck in your campus life and marriage life! I hope that both of you will succeed in your future undertakings. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mrs. This One

      Khairul, greetings from the US!

      Thank you for stopping by and your lovely comment. It hasn’t been easy to do it all, I’ll tell you that. And I think that’s why this blog ended up being an outlet to share our adventures. I think people can do anything they want as long as they work enough for it, but I know this doesn’t always apply.

      Thank you for your wishes!

    I just found your blog–okay, technically you found me first!–and I’m having a lot of fun catching up. Sounds like you two have a full plate, and my hat’s off to both of you ๐Ÿ™‚ I was looking at your list of 2011 Goals and had to laugh in a couple of spots (no, don’t give up your video games!). Keep it up and I’ll check back often!

    • Mrs. This One

      Alright, I will take video games off- they are too much fun anyway!

      I’m glad you came back and liked what you saw. I truly like what I saw on your blog and can’t wait to read more of it either ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Kathryn McCullough

    I love your blog. Just noticed that you subscribed to my blog yesterday and wanted to thank you for the visit. Hope you will come back again soon. If you are interested in reading any protected posts, the password is “mother.” See you soon, I hope——————-

    It’s okay to approve. I am only trying to create a buffer that will make it unlikely my mother will read the post. She RARELY gets online and the likelihood of her finding my comment are beyond remote. I even shared the password at the end of my post today, as it’s one I feel certain my mother would never be interested in. I’m not as concerned with privacy as I am with decreasing the likelihood that she would read those protected posts. Hope that makes sense. It will once you read the posts. Thanks for this consideration, however.

    ah young marriages are always easier i a days people get to involved in work and their profession and get confused on who to marry later on.

    great blog! and cool theme

    • Mrs. This One

      I’m glad that you think that way! The way I see it is that I’d rather build my life with someone than building my life and then trying to fit someone into it, you know?

      It’s been a fun ride so far!


  • *~*Angel Eyes*~*

    Oh how fabulous! I was a political science major when I started at my university but switched to pre-med. How is married life treating you in college? Must be a lot of work.

    • Mrs. This One

      Got tired of politics? I salute you though, medicine is hard. You liking it?

      You know, it has its up and downs, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I like being able to share these years of my life with my girl. That’s why I’m so bummed at the possibility of not being able to go to grad/prof. school together. But we know that it’s a sacrifice we may have to endure, so we’ll get it done.

      Thanks for commenting!

    Thanks for your comment!

    I’ll be applying to law school in a year or two, so I can (sort of) relate to your LSAT and application frustrations. Keep us posted!!
