And so it begins...

I start BarBri (i.e. the Bar review tomorrow.) I have a shelf-full of materials - literally, if I started reading right now, I doubt I could read through it all by the end of July (i.e. D-day(s).) Sadly, I've been looking forward to preparing for the Bar. I've set myself a schedule and I'll be able to focus on one thing for once.

Having said that, it's not entirely accurate. In addition to taking (and PASSING) the Bar, this summer I need to sell my place, finalize and take a post-Bar trip (not that I'm complaining), and ... move. I hate, hate, hate moving. I have lived in my place for 4 years. In college, I lived in the same house for 3 years. I'm not a mover (although I am a shaker.) Luckily, the firm is paying for the move - so, hopefully, all my stuff will be magically packed and whisked away and then whisked back into place when I find new digs. Ah, elves - you gotta love them.

I'm nervous and excited about starting Bar review. The end of law school has been pretty anticlimactic. Out of the frying pan and into the fire - I'm done with law school and exams....except for the Big One. Lawyers talk about the Bar exam like veterans talk about "the War," or mothers talk about labor.
