It’s been almost a week since I wrote the bar. It sucked… I don’t care what anybody tells you. I’m sure it’s an individual experience but I just cannot imagine a world where this exam could have sucked any less. I say I don’t care what anybody tells you because the day after the exam there was an email in my inbox directed to 2 and 3L students describing the bar exam that began something along the lines of half of the things she’d heard about the exam weren’t even true. That’s baloney. The bar exam was everything my friends promised it would be and then some.
For example, at some point during the second half of the essay writing day I actually thought for a moment that the ink from the pen I was using was disappearing behind the words as I wrote. On day two, I bubbled in my answer to multiple choice question number 200. Then there was blackness and the next thing I remember the proctor was asking me if I was done and I was thinking I probably should have looked that over. It was grueling and I was tired just like everyone said I would be. I don’t know if the woman that wrote that email had super powers, was in denial or still drunk from her post exam partying but I can’t imagine why she so overtly played down the exam. I can understand not getting people all worked up about it but it really came off as if the exam is a breeze and I can confirm for you right now… that it is most certainly not.
The two days following the exam I think my body experience some kind of shock or withdrawal I had headaches and fatigue and felt generally crappy but everything seems back to normal now and I have been enjoying my freedom. I haven’t charged my camera battery in a while but I have a few pictures from the last couple of days that I’ll try to post later. I have to ease back into the swing of things here. No more excuses. It’s almost enough to drive you right back into school… almost. I mean honestly, who doesn’t like excuses?
