State of the Blog: Bar Exam Respite

The Bar Exam is next week. It’s been five years since the last time I passed it.  Almost seven years since I took my last law school final.  And I need to study.

Obviously, I’d rather be here, writing about shoes and lipsticks.  But if I fail, I’ll never live down the embarrassment.  See you soon.

xo, Abra

    Studying for the bar is a full-time job with no energy left for a side hustle. Take care of yourself, and good luck!

    You are so brave – just the idea of sitting for another bar exam (not to mention all the work while actually working!) is too much for me! Hope everything goes smoothly. You’ve got this!

    Best of luck to you! You are a rock star for taking another bar exam. I almost withdrew my application to waive in to the Washington bar when I found out I would have to take the Washington Law Component test, and that’s open book! Taking another bar exam is a whole other level of impressiveness. We’re rooting for you!

    You will be fine. Memory from BAR-BRI: topic was mens rea – example: husband-wife are fighting, he grabs gun, shoots her, she dies.Class discussion ensues. “Yeah, but what if he only wanted to wing her?”

    Sending love & encouragement.
