So a lot of my friends and I have discussed the bar exam in a moderate amount of detail. Not really going over questions, other than "holy shit that corporations question sucked"*, but just a general "well fuck that was REALLY hard."
But now? Everyone seems to have post-bar exam anxiety. I can't tell you how many of my friends have told me that they wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat or from a nightmare that they failed. Or just randomly say "Shit I REALLY hope I don't have to take that again."
And don't get me wrong - I'm not saying it was easy. It was not. And I sure as hell don't have any desire to take it again in February. But I have barely even thought about it since last week, other than the times I've talked about it with friends or someone asks me about it. I'm certainly not panicking about it, and I definitely don't wake up in the middle of the night worrying about it.
Maybe because I've been spending so much time worrying about how I'm going to pay my bills since I have no job? Maybe because I realize that there's not a damn thing I can do about it now?
It's likely that I'm feeling overly confident and that definitely means I failed. Feel free to comment that too, it won't hurt my feelings. We'll know for sure in 8 weeks.
*Oh and I should note that I have discussed how thrilled I was that there was a question on the MBE about mitigation in capital cases. Because HELLO! The ONLY.THING. I learned in law school! YAY! And apparently most people don't even know what mitigation is. (My death penalty clients has the sads for this).
And this has nothing to do with anything, except for the fact that I've watched it probably 100 times in the last 48 hours. And it NEVER.GETS.OLD. And I've done a piss poor job of providing you with entertainment lately. So here you go - enjoy.
oh and if that made no sense to you - you prob. haven't seen the original. Are you living in a cave? Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQdndGfF2C0&feature=related
