Before I write anything else here, I want to thank everyone who has expressed their support (and condolences!) both in the comments section and in the personal e-mails. They are sincerely appreciated. Thanks very much for that!
I registered for the Feb ’08 exam a couple of hours after reality set in. And my name is not on the pass list that was released today so I suspect I’ll not be receiving a pleasant surprise in the mail tomorrow or Tuesday. Blah.
I’m thinking of not shaving until I pass this thing. Do you think they’ll let me in the next exam if they can’t recognize me? I wonder.
As an act of defiance to the Bar gods, I’m thinking of getting a tattoo. Something along the lines of “I fought the Bar, and the Bar won.” I have to find a suitable graphic to go along with the words. Perhaps a shot of some week old road kill would be appropriate. But then that wouldn’t be very “defiant”, would it? I’ll have to put some more thought into that one.
There’s a little voice in my head that’s telling me that I wouldn’t appreciate my law license if it wasn’t hard enough to get. I’ve been telling that little voice that it’s been plenty hard up to this point, what more does it want? Silence was its reply. I hope it comes up with an answer before February.
Hey, at least I don’t have to buy any more study material! And I think I might be able to get some money back from a couple of the programs that guaranteed "A pass or your money back!" You’re expecting another ‘blah’ here, aren’t you?
And so it continues.....
