I keep having bar exam dreams. In one night I had THREE straight bar dreams. In the first one, I was waiting for results, and found out I’d failed for the third straight time. In the second dream, I was again waiting for results, and found out I’d passed. In the third dream, I was taking the bar exam all over again but the essay questions were really crazy and not even remotely related to the law. For instance, one question was “Which Sesame Street character is your favorite, and why?” I was freaking out, trying to figure out how I was supposed to apply ANY law to those essay questions! How do I apply the law to my favorite Sesame Street character?? Needless to say, I was very relieved when I finally woke up the next morning.
It looks like I’m going to have to take this state’s bar exam in February. I’m going to start studying in September, but not stringently. For instance, I could aim for 20 MBEs and one essay a day. I’d rather spread out my studying over a long amount of time so I can get in shape early on and still have a life, rather than try to cram everything in at the last minute and be miserable.
