testing 1, 2, 3…

February 29th, 2012

This Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week are basically miserable for me. 

As you guys have probably picked up by now, I’m taking the Texas Bar Exam.  Each state licenses attorneys differently, so when I moved here, I hadn’t practiced long enough to be eligible to waive in.  So, after practicing law for several years, it seems that I have to start back over… with the Bar Exam.

And that’s fine.  It’s a tough test, but I’ve studied incredibly hard — probably harder than when I passed in New York!  And in two more days (I can literally count the hours at this point), this insane period will be over. 

So send good luck thoughts and prayers my way through Thursday, and I’ll be back on Friday with pictures much prettier than my (epic, if I do say so myself) flashcards. 

Thanks guys!

    Best of luck to you.

    As attorneys we never forget our Bar experience.  And after the test, you get to wait for the results!

    A big glass of wine on Thursday… And then shopping all day Friday, and then the Rodeo on Saturday!  I can’t wait.  🙂

    This is why I could never move to another state:) One bar exam was more than enough! However, having licenses in New York and Texas will be another wonderful accomplishment to add to your already impressive list. Best of luck…I’ll be sending lawyering vibes your way!

    Good luck!!! You will do great, and the studying will pay off.

    P.S. I had no idea you were a lawyer, and I am not beyond amazed that you find time for everything that you do!

    Good luck Katy! I’m sure all the hard work and studying will pay off. Hopefully you and your man can treat yourselves to a great dinner afterwards!  I will be checking in to see how it went on Friday. Like Laura, I had no idea you were a lawyer, I am super impressed that you dedicate so much time and effort to sugarlaws – I know that all us readers appreciate it!
    Break a leg!
