The bar exam is tomorrow.
I’ll let that sink in…. tomorrow.
All the months of studying (I started early – December 3rd), all the weekends spent at coffee shops, all the nights after work, trapped in my office while I listened to lectures with the door closed…
For better or for worst, it’s ending today. I decided to cut myself off at 4:00 today. No more studying past that point. My plan was to study hard with minimal breaks until then, but that hasn’t happened. My bosses gave me last Friday and this week off. So I have had my head buried in my outlines and practice essay book since Thursday Night with pretty standard breaks for snacks, lunch, a nap and dinner and one especially spoiled bit of time where I got a massage, facial and manicure <3. I think I’m just tired.
I’m sure you guys are ready to hear about other parts of my life (you all seem pretty interested in my landlord ;) …) and not be subjected to the bar-exam-crazy that has taken over all aspects of my life, including Twitter and Instagram.
I’m ready for that too.
For now, I’m going to review my Professional Rresponsibility (graded separately in WA, and takes place on Thursday) and Property (an average of 2-3 essays PER bar exam) outlines. Then I’m going to go home and do all kinds of things I haven’t been able to do since I moved in, like sweep, maybe unpack a little, sit in silence. Who knows. But at 4:00 I’m letting go and trusting that God brought me here for a reason, I’ve used my time as wisely as possible, and that it IS possible to pass the bar exam when you’re working full time.
Oh, and someone please feel free to remind me at any point over the next three days that I CAN survive the bar exam. Not only can I do it now, but I already SURVIVED it in Nevada. I keep forgetting that.
