Survival and Patience

As you know, I haven't written anything for months. The Bar Exam is every bit as horrible and terrible as you have heard, or you can imagine. But I survived. It has taken, literally, over a month to come out of the post-Bar Exam fog, but here I am! I survived! 

(Of course, I won't find out if I pass the exam until May, so I get to keep waiting.)

I sure you want the details of the bar exam it self. Rather than wallow in the horribleness I'll try to keep it short. 

The bar exam was two days long, filled with six different half hour essays, two 90 minute essays, and 200 multiple choice questions. It was full of security measures and fingerprinting to make sure I wasn't actually taking the test for someone else. 

I had one moment of panic when my computer glitched, began to stall, and I had to reboot in the middle of a timed essay question. I said thousands of prayers as I tried to remain calm and focused throughout, and especially as the tech people tried to fix my computer and retrieve my test.

At one moment I was filled with absolute disgust as the bar examinee next to me finished his multiple choice questions in half the time and then put his head down on the table and napped (with drool puddling beneath his head) while I desperately tried to finish my questions on time. (If he passes and I do not, I don't think I can be held responsible for my actions. 

But the test is over, and nothing I can do now will change the results. I'll just have to wait and see... just as I'm waiting for the spring to hit Colorado, and the flowers to start blooming again.

Hoping for good news! I can't believe you had a napper next to you.
