Byebye Bar!

3 days, 2 performance tests, 6 essays, and 200 MBE questions later... I'm free! (Well. At least for now. I don't find out my results for 4 months! And then I wouldn't retake the bar until February... but I'm trying to think positive)

So Day 2 was all multiple choice questions (this portion is called the MBE or multistate bar examination). 100 questions over 3 hours in the morning, and 100 over 3 hours in the afternoon. I finished 1 hour early in both sessions. The people next to me were really freaked out that I finished so early. I'm a fast reader, and I don't like to second-guess myself. I will flag some questions to return to, but that didn't really happen here. There were TONS I had to guess on. I narrowed it down to 2 answers, and then just took the plunge. It wouldn't have helped to stare at it for another hour. I heard a lot of people thought it was hard, so that's good... I'm glad I'm not alone.

Today, day 3, was another essay/performance test day. 3 essays over 3 hours in the morning, and a performance test over 3 hours in the afternoon. The essays were Corporations, Criminal Procedure and Marital Property (I hope I'm remembering that correctly). I felt ok on the first essay, but things went downhill from there. It was SO hard to keep my eyes open. I can't remember what I wrote, but I'm not sure it was that coherent. During lunch I had to go to my car and sleep. I felt like a truck had run me over.

The performance test though... I think I killed it. :) I was grinning at the end. Good times. I don't know if two performance tests can save me though...

Anyway. I feel pretty drained and not completely sure what to do with myself. I'm too overtired to sleep. I'm too lazy to take a shower. Maybe I'll just play Starcraft. (nerdiness, FTW! ;)) Or eat cookies. Where are the cookies when you really need them...?
