I just realized there are now 6 weeks left until the July bar. I feel sick. It doesn’t help that I didn’t get much studying done this weekend since we had to go out of town for a wedding. However that will be the last trip before the bar exam except for traveling to Colorado for the bar. From here on out, it’s crunch time for me. I have to focus on the bar so I don’t have to take the damned thing again!!! I did manage to finish reading the Strategies & Tactics book and need to start on the questions in the book. I also want to type out some notes from the book so I can review them without having to go back through the entire book.
I’m having second thoughts about quitting my job on Friday July 13, which would give me 10 full days to study for the bar. I’m not sure if that’s enough time. I’d be curious to know how much time everyone is planning to take off from your job (if applicable) before the bar. I’m tempted to quit work on Friday July 6 but we could really use the money from the extra week since we have to live off our savings for a month and half due to the move and the fact that my new job doesn’t start until September. Also, I won’t have very much work left so I could study for the bar at work.
I swore I wouldn’t join in on the Paris Hilton debacle, but Blawgin’ recently posted that she’d “gladly trade 3 weeks of jail for 2 months of bar review hell as a repeater” and posed the question of whether anyone would be willing to do the same. I’d totally do it. I’d rather spend a few weeks in prison than take the bar exam again, and I’d survive in prison too. I’d take Ice-T’s advice: “If I was her, I would hit someone the second I got in there and go into PC, protective custody. Then she’s just got to sit in there and read some books.”
I hate to admit this, but I’m actually a little jealous of Paris Hilton right now because she has a room all to herself with no one to bother her for the next few weeks. I could get SO much studying done there!
