Alrighty Now ...


Well, what can I say? 

I'm not sure whether I'm more pleased by having finally passed the bar exam, or from knowing that I will not have to take it one, more, time. 

The former, I think, but it's close. 

There is no doubt, however, that it would have been much, much more difficult to hang in there for these past few years without the constant support and affirmation provided by you, my readers. 

And for that, I will be eternally grateful. 

Thank You.

Since Friday at about 6:20 p.m. I've been busy writing and answering emails, and making and answering phone calls.  It's been great!  Yet still, it hasn't completely sunk in.  Studying for, and taking, the bar exam had become such an integral part of my life that it's hard to imagine not having to do it again.  But I'm sure I will get used to it!  One commenter was nice enough to remind me not to register for the February 2013 exam.  I appreciated that!

I still have a lot of emails to answer, and I'll be doing well to get to all of them before the end of this week.  But rest assured that I will answer each of them. 

Thanks to each of you for all you've done for me.  I appreciate it more than I can say.

Is Big Cat included in that thank you GP? Big Cat is a big GP supporter, ha!

I have followed your blog for a while now, and admired your perseverance and good natured writing style.

Congratulations on passing! The world needs more nice, friendly, down to earth lawyers. :)

I think I'm the last one standing of the bloggers who started taking the bar exam in the past decade. The ones that I used to correspond with passed long ago, the ones I'd followed for a long time passed, even those who I follow and don't seem to notice me have now passed (like you)! I'm very glad for everyone, but it's not easy to feel left in other people's dust. I'm seriously considering taking Feb 2013 even though I originally intended to wait for July. We'll see. Aren't you glad not to have to think about this anymore?

Hey Legis,

No, I hadn't forgotten you. I still think about those of our original "bloggers club" who have passed (the bar exam!) before us.

I do still check in from time to time, just to see what's going on, but most of them have ceased blogging now that the purpose for the blog has passed (into the hereafter, thereafter, wherefore, whereforeartnow!)

I stuck with it this long because I had so much invested in this career change that to abandon it before it was complete would have had even more disastrous financial consequences than I suffered by pressing on.

Shoot me an email at bllypoobah(at) and I'll tell you what I think I did to make this time a success. I'll be posting it on the blog soon enough, but it might be better to have a one-on-one conversation.

Take care!

Big Cat so very proud of Poobah Cat. Poobah Cat does not need the Big Cat outlines. Maybe Big Cat needs Tolerico outlines.

Goat is still no help. Big Cat > Goat.

Yes, please post a blog about your tips for the bar exam. I can't believe I have to take this thing yet again...

I am glad you showed that Big Cat idiot who is boss GP. Here's my guess at that guerilla marketer's true identity:

2:08 - That actually kind of looks like Jonathan Kramer (i.e. the Big Puma). What say you big puma?
