The Little Thin Envelope Containing The Fate Of My Career

After suffering through the long walk to the mailbox with an over-active pulse, a chest-pounding heart and a flood of tingles spreading throughout my limbs, I reached in and pulled out the thinest envelope ever. Seriously? My heart fell. I must have failed if the envelope is this thin! I just stared at the typed letters of my name across the front and assured myself that it would be ok either way. My hands were shaking so badly that after I broke the seal and pulled out the letter all I could make out was the word "Conratulations" in the first sentence.

OMG. I PASSED the bar exam. I immediately called my family, sent a throng of texts and then got on Facebook to make the news opublic.

I can't tell you what a relief and what a load off my mind this is! Unlike most lawyers I've talked to in the past two months, I did not know that I passed after I completed the exam. I've had many doubts and fears about my results, all the while, remaining cautiously optimistic. But now the horrid wait is over. I officially passed! I can come to work on Monday with my head held high.

I feel so damn good. And that's an understatement. But I also feel for the people getting not to happy results today, I can't imagine what is going through their minds today. But one thing is for sure, IM NEVER TAKING ANOTHER BAR EXAM EVER EVER AGAIN! Even if my dream job opens up in another, non-reciprical state.

I still feels like a dream. A nice, warm, fuzzy, happy dream!

Ok, now time for BEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ooops, I mean beerS!

So happy for you! Hopefully you never have to take the bar again. Earlier this year I was faced with having to take another bar exam and I am so glad I ended up not having to.
