MoBar: Passed!

Well, friends. I have passed the Missouri bar! I feel like I need to check and recheck the website to really believe it! I am so excited!

I can finally clear out my old books and move on with my life!!!

I can be an attorney and practice law.


I don’t really have words right now. just really excited, relieved, and feeling accomplished.

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me, who listened to my complaints, who helped me study, who brought me food while I was studying, and who has just generally been a friend during the last few years. 🙂

Man. My life really IS awesome. In fact, I am making an “I Am Awesome” playlist.

I have like, 100 corny law jokes, but I’ll save them for the I Passed The bar BQ” tomorrow. 🙂

Here goes nothing

Or everything.

I am 8 minutes away from heading to session I of the MoBar.

All I have to say is thank you so much to all of my friends and family members who have sent encouraging texts, emails and have called to wish me luck over the last few weeks.

It has been amazing to feel so supported and loved by everyone.

I hope I make you all proud today! 🙂 (and tomorrow!)

And GIGANTIC thank you to my hubby who has spent countless hours helping me memorize terms and rules, quizzing me and taking care of me.

See you on the flip side 🙂

I Blame the Bar

Ridiculous things/thoughts inspired by studying for the bar:
– I think a wisdom tooth is coming in. I’m 26. Aren’t I a little old to be teething? 😛 I blame the stress from studying for the bar. It is clearly causing mutations.
– Today, Jonathan is running really late getting home… for about five minutes (before, thankfully, he called me to tell me about his hijinks) I literally entertained the “what if he’s dead?” thought (which is a natural thought process when you are a touch paranoid like I am) and the thought process went something like this, “How do I tell his Mom we can’t have the funeral until NEXT Friday so that I can sit for the bar first?”
– I crave caffeine and starbucks in ways I never have before. I also blame this on the bar and attribute it to clearly a mutation.
– And exercise. I crave exercise constantly. Probably from spending too many hours hunched in front of stacks of books.
– But seriously, if Jonathan (god forbid) did die, I would take my books to jeff city, extend my hotel room, and hole up, study, and sit for the bar. (He told me on the phone that that’s exactly what he would want me to do. Good law-student’s husband, for understanding instead of being offended.)
– I got birchbox and it is awesome!
– That last thought had NOTHING to do with the bar 🙂
– When I hear conversations (especially at starbucks), I mentally try to figure out which MBE subject would fit best, and how to analyze it. This has resulted in my friends being both irritated and entertained by me. Because of course I have to share.
– I am so ready for this to be over (clearly).
– I wonder if I feel like I am not working hard enough because I am a slacker or if I feel like I am not working hard enough because I have really high expectations for myself that are not even close to being meetable. I hope that I’m somewhere in between and solidly in a passing zone.
– I should go to bed so I can get up early and hit starbucks, gym, starbucks,lawschool,home, biking, home tomorrow.
– Jonathan is signed up (and by signed up, I mean, as the husband of a bar candidate he is REQUIRED) to help me cram-study-memorize all day on Saturday and Sunday. Maybe by Sunday night he will WISH he had atleast pretended to be dead until after the bar 😛

This will probably be my last post until after the bar, so for any of my fellow bar-sitters… GOOD LUCK! 🙂

One eensy teensy part left…

Okay, I’m being a little facetious.

But, today I found out I passed the Character and Fitness section of the bar. So, so far I have passed the MPRE (ethics), passed the Missouri comprehensive exam, and now character and fitness. And an additional message confirming that I have sent in all of the necessary information to be thoroughly examined.

All that is left to pass is the actual bar itself. 2 MPTs, 6 MEEs, and 200 MBE questions.
Okay. can do.

Just gotta push through one more full week of studying harder than I ever have in my life. Then sit for the exam. Then start praying I passed!

Alright, Sasha, time to WORK!
