I have put everything I can into ensuring success and I am right where I need to be in my studies.
T-Minus one week until the bar exam!!!
Where did the time go? But actually, where did it go? (Still waiting on response to my time machine inquiry!) This past week, I’ve gone through a rollercoaster of emotions. From feeling overwhelmed, to feeling upset, to feeling anxious, to feeling a sense of readiness to take the test, this week has been an interesting one. I’ve followed BARBRI’s plan by answering questions, reviewing outlines, and working on essays. I even did a few more essays and practice MBE questions for good measure. The more exposure I get to different questions and scenarios, the more confident I feel in my abilities to be able to take the curveball essay question in stride.
I know that whatever happens next week, I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am. I’ve put in the time and dedicated my summer to studying for the bar exam. I know that I have put everything I can into ensuring success and I am right where I need to be in my studies. While this was definitely a sacrifice, I’m hoping that it will pay off in the end.
During the #OwnTheBar Twitter chat, BARBRI alums preached that it is important to remain confident and positive during the week leading up to the exam. While this seems like an impossible feat, I’ve been attempting to remind myself that I have put in the time and followed BARBRI’s plan. Sending out good vibes and positive thoughts to my fellow bar preppers. Time to #OwnTheBar!
