It’s been nearly three weeks since I took the bar exams and so much as happened! Here are a few updates.
They were incredibly tough. Each day that goes by I’m convinced more than ever that I failed both of them. My Barbri books still haven’t been returned because I can’t bring myself to even look at them. I’m half tempted to keep them just in case but there is a $250 book refund and that money is looking awfully good right now.
I can’t offer any tips about the bar since I’m not sure if I passed, so look for a later update if you want advice. What I can say is that I’m so glad that they are done.
I moved less than one week after the bar exams and in with M. It felt, and still feels, like the natural next step in our relationship. I’ve had a lot of fun decorating and unpacking and turning this apartment into a home. I still have about 2% of items that need to be put away, but on the whole the apartment is pretty much done. Pretty soon after moving in, we both had to leave because we took our first vacation!
M and I took a vacation three days after I moved in to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. This was an amazing vacation! The beaches were beautiful, the people SO friendly, the seafood was delicious, and the sunsets were amazing! We stayed in a little guest cottage that we found on a website similar to AirBnB. We saw dolphins while taking a sunset cruise, heard a horse while walking on a nature trail, both received pretty gnarly sunburns, learned about the Wright Brothers and saw where the first flight took place, cooked a clam pot, ate delicious fudge, and relaxed on the beach. It was a perfect vacation with a perfect person and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I’ve provided myself the perfect segway into my next section . . .
M proposed while we were in the Outer Banks! It was a beautiful and private proposal and I immediately said yes. We haven’t planned any details yet, we both just want to enjoy being engaged for a little bit, but we’ll start that soon enough.
So there are my latest updates! I start my new job in about ten days, so I’m sure there will be another entry about that, too.
I want to thank all of the readers on here and my twitter followers for giving me such support during the bar exam. I read each and every tweet and comment, even if I didn’t respond, and was incredibly touched. Thank you all!
