3 Reasons Why I Love the Bar Exam



This is my contribution to the Blog Project: Three run by Daily Blog Tips. Join in the fun by July 8th for your chance to win some cash!

Oh, Bar Exam, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

1. You’re vacationing with me in Roanoke, Virginia this summer.

Without you, Bar Exam, I would have to stay in the lovely town of Charlottesville all summer. I wouldn’t get to rent a roach-motel-room in Roanoke. I wouldn’t get to put on a suit (no joke, required attire by Virginia) and spend two glorious days and nights in such a lovely city.

And this means that I get to drive two wonderful hours down the beautiful interstate highway as well. Yes, trucks zipping by me, the smell of exhaust pouring through my car. It will be a great experience! And that’s thanks to you, Bar Exam.

love

2. You aren’t high maintenance, not at all.

I’ve only spent over $3,000 preparing for you. I hear that some guys spend many times that on diamond rings for their future wives. Bar Exam, you definitely are reasonable.

And you don’t take up all my time, either. I don’t have to spend every waking hour with you – only 8 to 10 per day. That leaves me enough time to do fun things around the house, like pack for our upcoming move. You are so considerate, Bar Exam.

3. I’m a masochist.

I truly enjoy carrying around 5 huge textbooks – two of which are printed on legal paper. This physical pain helps me to grow and be a stronger man.

And your hundreds of crazy questions give me joy as well. I get to feel my brain implode when the answers elude me. Then I can beat myself silly when I realize how easy the question should’ve been to me in the first place.

I’m definitely looking forward to the overwhelming stress of actually facing you in three weeks. Stress is most enjoyable! Hundreds of over-achievers locked in a convention center together, all worried that they’re going to fall flat on their faces. You’re making my summer grand, Bar Exam!

Really, it’s not that bad. I’m just in an odd mood this evening. :)

    This was sooo funny. I am going to send it to all my friends that have taken the bar exam, I don’t have any taking the bar this time. Good Luck on tue and wednesday. I am sure if you actually read those books that you will pass. I haven’t read one yet so I guess this will be my VA practice run and then I will read them for the Feb bar. The norfolk Marriot is super nice so at least I will be doing better there in feb then I will be in Roanoke in a few days. GOOD LUCK!
