She/her I am studying for the bar exam, in case you were wondering what that loud "AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!" was.

I had a bad day that ended well because I saw my daughter make a theater full of people laugh. There is nothing like watching her on a stage. #Proud

How do you convince people to keep studying for the bar exam when they feel that laws mean nothing anymore? I understand what they are saying, no matter how determined I feel to fight back with the law. My heart goes out to them. Any advice, #lawtwitter ?

Bar Prep is going so great that I stopped posting daily updates. It's also because all of the days blend together and I'm freaking out because I'm not memorizing yet.

PS. The spelling errors in this are frustrating to me as well. I was trying to move quickly so I could get back to bar prep.

Anyway, I wish I would have known this prior to law school starting. I didn't and it was a frustrating struggle until a concerned Professor lead me to another who gave me the tools to succeed.

I also found that the techniques I was given to ease exam anxiety helped immensely. I started to make sure I blocked time prior to every exam to clear my head. Doing that didn't cause everything I memorized to vanished. I instead helped me to recall it for the exam.

I see everything with a color. That means when I look at a list that is typed out, my brain associates colors to it. I found writing in colors - or typing in my computer because writing hurts my hands, was very helpful to memorizing.

It wasn't until a Professor wanted to know how I could be prepared for each class yet do so poorly on a midterm. After talking with her, she connected me with another Professor who helped me with a plan to study better & overcome exam anxiety based on how I think.

I would completely blank on things I knew well. I would vomit an answer hoping that the more I would write, then the sooner what I knew would appear in my head onto my exam soft screen.

It wasn't about the content. I clearly knew what was going on in all of my classes from day 1. I was always prepared for class. I worked very hard. What I didn't know what how to execute what I knew on the exam under exam conditions. Anxiety took over.

I made Dean's List for my last semester of law school. I also made it for the semester prior. It took me to the 4th year to get it all down. This makes me think about other law students or future. If I knew what I know now, I would have been making Dean's List the entire time.

Day 30 and 31 of Bar Prep: Yesterday was a bar prep workshop from my school on Property Law. It was good. The rest of the day was Evidence and Criminal Law. Today was Criminal Law and Crim Pro. I am not feeling well (not COVID). Grateful that its during interesting subjects.

Day 29 of Bar Prep: OMG - Day 29 already!!! I need to stay focused when I am taking a lot of tests during the day, because, guess what, that's what the bar exam is. I did an MPT, several MBEs, and several essays today. My brain is goo. But this is prepping for a marathon, right?

Day 27 and Day 28 of Bar Prep feel like they've melded together. I worked until late last night and all day today. I think I need to start memorizing now. I'm going to try to do what worked in Law School: writing rules over and over and in different colors. I hate flash cards.
