it is SUCH a cliché, but why must the men always hold the purse strings and be big buzz killers? My bf likes to tell me we can't do things because he is saving for my "bling."

Ugh, that is the worst! I have suffered from it myself. I am sorry! It helps me to take a sleep aid and usually I do not have those episodes.

i love how we've all become 1 big family on here. All my non-law friends/fam are like "but it's just an exam?" like no you don't get it bye.


I love my coworkers that are like, you studied so hard, you'll pass! And I'm like, umm, I also worked full time, so while all my other waking minutes were spent studying, it was nowhere near what others put towards this test.

I frequently speak on her behalf in what I would imagine her voice to sound like...does that count? She doesn't know how to give hugs but she will climb onto anyone's lap. She'd go home with anyone with a treat in their hand.

It's so annoying when people say that. Like, yes, it's just an exam, but it's the exam that allows me to actually get and keep a job and move on with my life?

Otherwise I'm stuck in this weird limbo where Macy's wouldn't even give me a job...seriously

I feel you. I have worked full time every time except this one bc my new bosses gave me the time off (well not all of it, but more than I could have every asked for!) and people told me the same. It is SUCH a different beast to work full time, or like I was 75-90+ hour weeks, and have to take this. That EXACT thought you wrote trails through my head, they all have had all summer I haven't had a full weekend some weekends! But you know what? People have done it before, so so can we ! :)

I've legit considered applying at Sephora, they'll probably be like oh you have a JD? you're overqualified sorry.

YES! The limbo. Thanks for the warm and fuzzies peeps but that is easy to fucking say when your life is moving forward and even upward and I am here on pause. :roll:

If I pass, I'll be in Albany for a conference mid-May. That's the closest I'll be to NYC. So all you NY people, take the bus, its like less than 20 bucks to Albany. We can grab dinner and stuff. I'll be posted up in a hotel, you can get a room or crash on the couch. But no hanky panky.

I took the exam in albany...cute lil town, not much to do though, although I was a nervous wreck and wasn't exactly looking to have fun while there.

Don't leave early today! Try to stay as distracted as possible at work. Being by yourself at home and just waiting for the clock to pass by won't be productive.

I worked at Barnes & Noble briefly when I couldn't find work. I left my master's off the application but included the JD. I told them that I didn't want to work in law so I wanted to see where this would take me (/I was waiting for any other job I'd applied for to get back to me). I worked there for 2 months and hated it...I'd been out of the retail game for so long and they were so into pushing things on customers that I had to leave. I lied and said that I had booked a flight home for Thanksgiving before they hired me (I didn't, I drive everywhere), so they said they'd give me that holiday off but no days in December. That's basically why I decided to take the bar...I felt less bad asking my parents for support if I was doing something productive. Of course shortly thereafter I landed my full-time job, but I'm not a total quitter so I still followed through with the bar.

Haha, so true. Like my employment is contingent on me passing. And it is the hardest exam I have ever taken. If I don't pass, I lose my job and I have to delay my life for 6 months and then hopefully find another job and then always explain in the interview that I lost my first job because I didn't pass. Ugh, I really hope I pass (and you guys too). I don't want to have to go through all that stuff. But taking precaution and taking all my belongings with me tonight. (at least I can avoid the walk of shame) But knowing me I'll forget something stupid, but I need like my $150 guess watch. Haha.
RESULTS NOW PLEASE!!!!

Haha, my dog tried to jump in a strangers car.

I will clearly have to be dressed as a drunk batsman if I meet up with any of you. How would you know who I was otherwise??
