piece of cake, right?

So from what my bar exam instructor has said it should be easy to pass the bar. I just need to memorize every itty bitty scrap of info on my 650 flashcards and then be mentally aware enough to spot every issue on the essays. Wow, sounds so simple!

Too bad I always forget an exception to a rule or one of the 6 factors needed to prove whatever.

I don't know if I have enough time to get everything in my puny brain as there are only 27 days left and I don't know anybody that has passed the bar well enough to ask them if they think I have a chance at passing or if I should give up now, sell off all my shit on ebay, and buy a one-way ticket to some island paradise where I will own and operate a preserve for house cats and a bookstore. Whew! Obviously the panic has hit so I will stop blogging and find some nice drugs (aka "wine") to help me get through tonight.

what have i done to myself?!

Wow...I haven't been posting much at all. I still find time for my internet-addiction and check up on all the blogs and gossip sites that I love, but I haven't thought about giving my own blog some love.

So have you ever studied for the bar? the CALIFORNIA bar? Goodness gracious, I never knew any test could be so hard and be so important. I didn't sign up for Barbri because I heard they throw tons of information at you and I know for a fact that I shut down when I feel like I have too much info. The class I'm taking has a good pass rate and they only let 100 students take it so we get a lot of personal attention...I sure hope it works because I don't know how I could do this again if I don't pass!

I feel like I spend more time worrying about the test than actually studying so that is my goal for this week - to get my mind right (finally!) and have some good study sessions so I have a chance at passing this beotch of a test.

As part of my procastination though, the Lumpkin had a photoshoot...this is her best shot of the night:
