Watch Me Take The Bar
Watch Me Take The Bar
This blog, originally started as a chronicle of my taking the bar, is now a look into the mind of an attorney in solo practice in Port Clinton, Ohio.

California Girls

namely Eve, GG and Roonie.

OK, tonight is hell night. I've lived through this. You can make it.

Except, California is extra-sadistic. In addition to being the last state in the Union to publish their bar results, they don't release them until 5 PM, California time, tomorrow night.

As Eve says, "The bastahds."

Anyway, as someone who does not drink very much at all, may I suggest a Labatt's to calm your nerves before you go to sleep?

And, since you don't have the benefit of a 7 AM release, perhaps one for the drive to work? Oops, probably not a good idea on many levels.

But, I just wanted to let you all know -- I'm thinking of you for any number of different reasons.

Roonie: OK, I don't know you as well as I feel like I know the other two, but I just had to give a shoutout to someone originally from Toledo, Ohio, who has met and taken that monster referred to as CalBar, what with its crossovers and strategies and low low low pass rate. GOOD LUCK! (And let me know if you're ever in Toledo, for Pete's sake)

GG: The Mother of All Bar Exam Bloggers! (Seriously, whenever this girl links to me in her post, a hundred people show up here.) Your mnemonics were awesome. You had the Zen of studying down, but you were also never too busy or stressed out to write a completely hilarious post. I almost consider it criminal that a slacker like me has become an attorney ahead of someone as sharp as you, but, hey, you're out in California soaking up rays and I'm in Ohio, praying the snow holds off for a little while longer, so, in the long run, it works out. Please don't stop blogging no matter what happens!!!

Eve: I know, you're convinced you didn't do well, and had some pretty crappy experiences in dealing with the bar. Just remember, there are a ton of people who walk out of the Barzam CONVINCED they failed, who find themselves as attorneys very shortly thereafter. (Or, in California, after a hellishly long period. Whatever floats your boat.) I think you will be among those people.

No matter what happens, though, you've got the right attitude in your most recent post: Look at this not as a judgment on you (because it's not), but rather on what you will be doing for the next six months. (No, you will NOT be living under an overpass.) Your sense of humor and unique eye are terrific, and I am honored to have blogged the barzam with you.

Anyway, ladies, just a shoutout from the Northcoast of Ohio to say I'm thinking of you, hang in there, and, as Anonymous of the SUDL would say, "Godspeed, John Glenn." Now, all that's left to do is sit back and watch you (never again) take that bar!!!!!!!
