The Calm Before the Storm

Everyone I know who studied for the Bar compared it with a marathon. The reason for the comparison? Well, I was told that just like sprinting the first 5 miles of a 26.2 mile race, psycho study for the first weeks will not get you ahead, only burn you out. Translation: Enjoy the weekends in May and early June, and don't spend the first few weeks staying up late and reading through outlines. Ok, I will happily heed that advice. In fact, this weekend I am flying home for my Uncle's 50th birthday party. The next weekend, I am going to K8's engagement party. And the 2nd weekend in June, I am going to Nashville for CMA Country Music Festival. First things first- tonight, I am going to happy hour.

I know that I may eat my words later, but right now, I do not think Bar Review is all that bad. Meanwhile, I am fully aware that this thought is probably bolstered by above travel and happy hour plans. However, I am going to enjoy this feeling while it lasts. Per the advice of several friends (and readers), I decided I would leisurely make notecards in the beginning for later review, which I must say, makes me feel like a 4th grader learning "times tables" all over again.

But hey, if it works, it works. I guess we will find out come Octoberish. I need to go freshen up before meeting up with friends, but I hope everyone has a great evening!

Just found your blog!

And yes...flashcards were the way to go for me. At least because I was lazy and it was easier to snuggle up on the couch with a stack of flashcards than those gigantic books and outlines.
