The rundown:

- I freaked out the first day of the bar exam and so I think I messed up on the Contracts essay. The rest of the essays were manageable on Day 1 and Day 3 (meaning that I thought I touched on all the issues but really, who knows if I did ok).

- The multi's were hard but I at least knew the law that was being tested.

- The performance exams were simple and straightforward - but I always suck at these so I'm sure the graders are going to hate my writing style or my headings.

What pissed me off:

- That my testing center was so air-conditioned that I felt like I was in a freezer. I saw one woman's lips turn blue and people wearing gloves and thick puffy jackets. How in the hell is that considered an appropriate testing environment? I can't think well when I'm shivering too hard to type. Plus I heard that the other room in the Ontario convention center was comfortably warm and that we couldnt have a more heated room because then that other room would be too hot. The fuck? I think that making people feel overly warm is a whole heckuva lot better than having 1000 people freeze their asses off. Hugging your computer battery in a feeble attempt to stay warm is

- That (according to people that have taken the bar multiple times) this bar was relatively easy and straightforward. So if I fail then I will really feel like a dumbass because it will only be harder in the future.

What I loved:

- Going straight to Vegas on Day 3 and using alcohol to kill all the brain cells I had left.

Oh you poor dear. Eight years later, I still have nightmares about the New York bar exam. When I took it, there were pigeons flapping around a few feet away from me. Yeah, that's conducive to concentration...
