Day 3

Woot Woot and a Ha-cha-cha-cha. Honestly, I like the essay/PT days sooooo much better than the MBE days. This morning I ran into Eliot. Its the first time I've seen him during the test. It made me feel better, more comfortable. We had the three essays in the morning. The first a crim law/con law cross over. I have a problem with Con law. I tend to get diarrhea of the brain...I can't stop writing. Today I spent an hour and 15 minutes on the first question. I knew I had to stop. I knew I could have written more. Luckily the next two questions were pretty straight forward - Contracts/remedies and Community Property. The last was the most fun because I got to completely BS a section of the question, but I used legal words and it sounded pretty good to me. Honestly, I don't really care if it was right or not, I doubt the graders will know for sure - kinda like how one of our lecturers told us he referred to the UCC when he couldn't think of the applicable tort answer. (The UCC only applies to contracts) Giant Balls finished an hour early again. Look buddy, you're not fooling anyone. You can't write 3 essays in 2 hours. You just can't. That's 40 minutes an essay. Have you heard of facts? You might want to start including some of them.

The performance test was great - well, great meaning "I didn't pee my pants and start crying for mommy" It was a persuasive letter based on statutes and two cases. 2/3 of the test was solely statutory, as in - copy the statute and say therefore.....for the most part.

But the best part of today? IT'S OVER! I'M DONE! I can now return to my regularly scheduled life. I'm staying here for another night so I didn't have to deal with the horrendous traffic back. Jon suggested a pick up a bottle of wine for myself, so I did. But I don't have a wine opener, so I had to get one with a screw top. There's something pretty pathetic about drinking a bottle of cheap wine in a hotel room by yourself, but know what? You can't call me pathetic cause I just finished the Bar and you didn't. So there.


  1. Joy to the world!
    The Bar is done!
    Let Kate rejoin the Earth!
