Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season. Nothing beats the smells you encounter on a warm sunny fall day. The crispness in the air. I don't care to be super hot and humid- I'd much rather be enjoying some autumn weather. And the colors...you can't touch the fire of a maple that you see among the other trees.
Bar results from July 2008 continue to come out. Many states have heard. For all those that passed- welcome to the ranks of esquire (but don't use it after your own name.)
For anyone with the unlucky fortune of not seeing your name or number on the pass list, I recommend you:
shed some tears
drink heavily for a day
get super pissed at the bar examiners
exhaust any options for regrade/review/appeal if you are close
then turn over the new leaf and get down to business for the next round
Life goes on. I'm not saying it doesn't seem to suck for a while. My bar limbo from last fall starting on the day results came out until I heard that I passed the DC bar in April were some of the most mentally challenging for me.
Just think of the joy you'll feel when you send the next bar exam packing. Think February 2009. Adjust a phrase and use the now infamous words of Paris Hilton "I'll see you at the debates, bitches."
At least we have the campaign antics to entertain us for a few more weeks. SNL rocks right now.
