Well the day has finally come. The day the bar results come out. As I type this, I am sitting at home in my comfy chair, just Moxie and a movie to keep me company. I have given it everything I had. No quarter.
We are just a couple of hours away from the big announcement. The one that will change lives, the one that may wreck havoc on others, the moment we have waited for for weeks, months, and years. Time will pass, regardless, and some will have to question their next steps, win or lose in this game of the bar exam.
Obviously, I hope I am in the “win” category, but even more than that, I want to see some of friends names on the list as well. We have all worked hard for th I moment. We have studied, given up weekends, missed family events and vacations, and spent a heck of a lot of money on this somewhat crazy endeavor. Has it been worth it? Will we succeed? I certainly hope so, but one never knows until the list is published.
I knew my day would be so crazy that I made myself a schedule for when I got home. I didn’t want to forget to turn off my phone, forget what movie I wanted to watch, or forget to set up my computer to see the final tally. I really didn’t trust my brain to remember all of that since all my neural receptors are presently taken over by adrenaline and her friends.
As this will be the last blog I write before the results come out, I want to take this time to thank all of my family, friends, co-workers, and professor for getting me this far, to achieve a dream I didn’t think possible. I also want to take a bit to tell a certain someone that he was wrong about me. I am smart. I can be successful. I didn’t need him to be happy and I certainly don’t need him to tell me that being a lawyer is stupid. It’s not. Being someone who had every opportunity planted at his feet, only to stomp them all, is stupid.
Hopefully I will have good news today. We sall she. Yes. I wrote it that way on purpose.
