When first studying for the bar I tried to memorize every detail & took detailed notes. Now, with two weeks to go, I am whizzing through the lectures and trying to see the forest for the trees.
There is nothing quite as soul-sucking in a pointless-cramming for two month straight- with no need to actually remember anything after the test kind of a way. Endless mnemonics. Boring (thank you bar prep for teaching me the literal meaning of “bored to tears”) lectures. Subjects you’ve never heard of… suretyship?!?? WTF. All with the hope that what you belch out on exam day will add up to a passing score.
If I am alive on July 26th, I will consider it a victory.
I just need to visualize myself rollerskating around the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners, in red spandex and rainbow sequins, belting this song out.
Oh Gloria Gaynor, you’re a genius.
