Having the Baby Bar Exam behind me is quite literally a tremendous weight dropped from my shoulders. Praise the Lord to be done!! In retrospect, the test was not nearly as difficult, or the circumstances near as frightening as I had imagined (though we know that retrospect is never reality until after the crisis). I was envisioning a general atmosphere of panic within the proctoring facility throughout the test, but it was fairly calm and subdued, with a few exceptions. My computer worked perfectly, without any freezes, hitches, or glitches. Some of my classmates’ computers froze and they had to hand-write the exam. I can’t really speak as to the result because I tend to always misjudge my performance but I have resolved to have faith in the Lord, and when my scores arrive in December to be content whether I pass or do not. I was SO BLESSED to have some wonderful classmates who pushed and prodded me every step of the way, and who encouraged me in Christ to approach the test in God’s peace, knowing that I am within His will as I take the exam. Oak Brook upperclassmen and upperclasswomen (thank you Amy, Katie, and Joel!) were incredible as well in acting as drill-sergeants through the review week in Anaheim. They pushed us to our very academic limits and the review (I am convinced) played a pivotal role in giving the class the little extra push we needed to be prepared for the exam. Overall, I am extremely thankful to God, and once again amazed at His faithfulness to me.
I am writing this from my temporary residence back in Anaheim, and I now need to close in order to get a couple hours of sleep before driving to LAX at 3:00 AM for my flight to Little Rock, Arkansas. My family will be picking me up there, as we head straight to the White Unto Harvest conference by NCFIC in Asheville, North Carolina.
I feel kind of funny. Today California and the Pacific Ocean. Literally, tomorrow North Carolina and the Atlantic. I should do something about my traveling habits… 🙂
Blessings to all of you,
