I am sure everyone has situations where no matter how much time they keep putting into something, they feel like the "D-day" is fast approaching and yet you arent making headway to reach the completion. As many of you know I have been studying for many months now in an effort to get another state bar under my belt, which would enable me to move back to Florida and out of california. Without taking this bar, I cant practice in Florida which would mean I wasted 3 years and a sizeable chunk of money that I am still paying back. Not something any sensible person would do.
I started studying for this bar back in December and have been relatively good about it. I can only think of a handful of days where I didnt touch the books. 2 were due to traveling, 1 was due to a family trip, and my birthday of course. There were also a few days where I just didnt study as much as I would have liked. That said, overall I have been working like a mad man hitting these books and chewing on those lovely idiocyncracies of Florida law.
Now as I stand on the verge of being in Feb, with the D-day just a few weeks away I am cursing myself as I feel like I am just not regurgitating the answers like I should. From my perspective, 99% of the problems that I am having is keeping the Florida irregularities straight many of which are the opposite of what I have known and used for years. All of that time and use is a hard thing to shake.
I am sure that I will pass the exam, as I have passed the hardest one in the nation before, but I want to feel good about it before I go sit for the exam.
I already decided to skip my one friends wedding as the result of my insecurities, but before anyone says thats ill advised...it was my friends suggestion and helped him out.
Either way, my break is over...time to hit the books yet again.
