So life is mostly getting back to normal in this post-bar era. I'm still sweating on the inside at times, really with no f'ing clue if I passed. Part of me says, "hell yes, you studied more, you had better practice results, and everything went better...besides you were SO close last time" and another part of me is thinking "OK, if I don't pass and I lose my job, WTF do I do next?" Those seem to cancel each other out and I just keep moving forward. I am definitely sick of this not-yet-licensed bar limbo. That can end anytime (although, D.C. results are not going to be out for another 3.5-6 weeks).
I've still had a couple of the "Oh, I'm sure you'll be fine this time around" type comments...which are scary and a bit annoying. That is the usual line given to would-be bar takers all over in June and July (except for states like CA). I wasn't fine last summer, though, so I'm not sure I buy it this time around.
Ah well, I have been thinking about how I am going to celebrate when I see my name posted online. I'm bringing in a little bottle of something...maybe the flask with some Patron Silver or something. Drinking in the office is the best (except when you get drunk in it mixing J.D. and Coke in a firm coffee mug the day you find out you didn't pass...although it seemed like the best thing to do at the time).
The cherry blossoms are in full bloom here in D.C., which is quite a sight. I checked them out early (sunrise) last Sunday morning and there were already a ton of people there. Quite an event.
