The bar exam might be the dryest subject on the planet, but it’s also full of emotions.
Joy when you pass. Sorrow when you fail. Frustration, hopelessness, anxiety, and overwhelm in between.
Naturally, this can be a new and unique life challenge!
The thing is, these feelings are all temporary.
When you pass, you’ll celebrate for a day or two. You’ll probably forget how much you struggled and despaired. You’ll start to worry about other problems like how to get sworn in, or finding and keeping a job, keeping clients happy, and so on, as life goes on.
You might even excitedly thank me and say you’ll do anything to repay me, you’ll give me feedback, you’ll donate essays… then never respond again when I ask for a simple writeup. The high will wear off very quickly.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I live to cackle at people for their inconsistent behaviors LOL (don’t think I forget because I’m definitely judging you if you’ve ever pulled this shit).
That doesn’t mean these powerful emotions you’re feeling now are useless while they’re happening.
