Giveaway | What the Bar Exam Feels Like

(Huge shout out to #whatshouldwecallme for being my happy place all summer.)

10. How you feel when your Facebook frenemies post that they're two weeks ahead of Barbri's schedule and you're drunk:



9. You spend three months actively seeking out absolutely anything else to do:

8. Then you try to answer your very first practice essay:

7. Every time someone (usually your mom) tells you you're going to pass:

6. When you #epicfail a bunch of MBE questions terrifyingly late in the process:

5. When aaaaall the gunners start rehashing the questions during the stampede out of the exam room:

4. Your face when you realize the bar examiners moonlight as comedians and gave you a SURFACE. WATER. ESSAY. QUESTION. (Or, for you Indiana kids, the first admin law question in twenty-four years.)

3. Trying to memorize Constitutional Law:

2. When you decide to skip the bathroom line and wait out the 15 minutes before you're allowed to leave the room once the test starts... and then the test starts.

1. The SECOND it's over:

  3. While you were rocking the bar exam, the husband and I came back from France, I started coaching middle school cross country and today, you'll see how terrible I am while taking pictures of myself with the 10 second timer on my DSLR.

    So happy the bar is over for you!!!

  9. I wanted to be a lawyer for most of my childhood, and then I worked for lawyers, and it seemed like more school and studying than I was interested in, so I have so much respect for anyone who actually does it!

  10. Congratulations!!!! I don't know the bar exam....but am entirely too familiar with medical licensing exams and feel that I can relate: enjoy being done!!!

  13. LOL @ Target being the happiest place on earth. I was like "$25 to Disneyland?"

    Glad you've got the bar behind you and are back in blogland :) the closest I can relate to the bar is the SAT or an AP test... so not at all.

  14. I LOVE whatshouldwecallme! And I also love the use of a Kel in Good Burger gif, haha. Also, a big and super enthusiastic YAYYYY for no more bar exam! Don't you wish you could be like that guy on that USA show Suits? Have you ever watched that show? What do actual law-ish people think about it?!

    I left this window open while I went to do laundry, and the Rafflecopter says "zzz, this widget fell asleep." Is it weird that I find a sleeping widget cute? Aww.

  15. Love these GIFs, even though I have no clue about anything law-related (English teacher, here). We go back to school this week, soo....that kind of sucks. That's all I got.

  16. just caught up on my blog reading - you haven't missed much!

  17. good to have you back! I don't have any war stories, but all the gifs are extremely accurate. I will say it's almost statistically impossible that you failed. Youre going to think about it and have nightmares (probably) for a few weeks. then you'll forget about the bar for a few weeks. and then for about 2 weeks before you find out if you passed you'll get the nightmares again, lol. it's a process!

  18. I think you found every single one of the most awesome GIFs and compiled them into a post of awesomeness. You're a damn hoot, and I'm glad you're back!

    I randomly just thought of the line from Liar Liar when Jim Carey's character screams into the phone, "Quit breaking the law, ASSHOOOOOLE!" I hope you know that part, or this is awkward.

  19. Haha so #2 and #1 were my favorite. I don't know anything about law, so I didn't relate to most of that. But just from what I've heard from your comments, it sounds IN-mf-SANE!! Love your blog!

  21. Yay for finishing the bar! I'm seriously amazed that you still had time to blog when you were studying, and especially taking pictures of your clothes and putting them online AND WHERE ARE THE TOPS THAT YOU PROMISED? Anyway, you haven't missed much in blog land. People are still wearing clothes, believe it or not!

  31. Wow!! Way to go, Sam! I have my comprehensive exams for my Master's program in the spring, but I'm pretty sure they'll be less intense than the Bar exam - whew! I have a few high school friends who took the Bar recently as well, and I don't envy them AT ALL. So much work, so much pressure...yucky! Best of luck to you - I hope you can get tons of relaxing done, now that you can!! :)
