Bar Results

I'm so sorry I haven't updated.  Studying got pretty busy and then I took the bar exam.  It was much harder than the first time I took it, and I left knowing I failed.

Results came out today and I have done everything to stay away from the computer.  One of my friends texted me "congrats" so I finally decided to look.


Any one who needs Texas results the link is

Step 4 lectures

I have to admit going into Monday I am not done with all those lectures.  Whose idea was it to make us watch 2-2.5 hours on each subject?  I still have 2 left so I am not in that much trouble.  Professor Guzeman is pretty good too, it is just hard to pay attention for so long.  Oh well, I better get to class.

Good luck studying everyone!

Simulated MBE

Yesterday was the 6 hour practice test so there was really no to do list.  I went and took the exam at the hotel and was rewarded with free lunch because of the hotel's earlier issues with us.  I scored 129 on the practice which is 29 points better than I did last time.

Hope everyone did well!

Consumer Law

Yesterday's To Do list

-  Consumer Law Lecture
-  Review Consumer Law
-  Consumer law essay 19
-  Consumer law essay 20

I stayed home from class yesterday to work mainly because I woke up pretty late.  It wasn't a problem as you can tell by the list it was a fairly short day.  I had no issues finishing the list.  My biggest problem yesterday was with the lecturer.  He was drinking a doctor pepper and taking pretty big swigs of it and the noise was just gross.  It happened numerous times throughout the lecture and by the end I was dreading when he would stop talking because it was time for him to take a drink.  The sound made me want to puke.

He hasn't been the first person to make noises because of drinking during the lecture he has just been the worst offender.

Good luck studying everyone!!

Civil Procedure 2

Yesterday was super productive.  I am completely caught up in the paced program again including all of the optional assignments.  The to do list was:

-  Civ Pro 2 Lecture
-  Review Civ Pro 2 notes
-  July 2010 Civil Procedure and Evidence
-  Evidence Set 3
-  Read Consumer law in the CMR

My evidence set did not go very well yesterday, and I am hoping it is just a fluke because I was doing really well on the evidence questions the day before.

No one showed up to class yesterday, and I can't really blame them the weather made it take me a little over an hour to get to class and I only live 20 minutes from the course location.

Yesterday's "me" thing was celebrating my birthday with my significant other!

Good luck studying everyone!

Civil Procedure 1

Well, I did not go to class yesterday.  I chose to stay at home and sleep in because it was my birthday.  I still started at 9:00 am, but because I didn't have to drive into downtown, I got to sleep late.  I also got caught up on everything but the optional MBE sets in the MPQ1.  I don't think I would have been able to get caught up if I hadn't stayed at home because I was able to take short breaks for lunch and snacks instead of driving for 30+ minutes.  Yesterday's to do list consisted of:

-  Civ Pro 1 lecture
-  Torts set 3 MPQ1
-  Review Civ Pro 1 Notes
-  Evidence Drills
-  Evidence drills video

Time to go to class.  I have to leave early today because it is pouring.  Good luck everyone!

Evidence 2

Yesterday's To Do list was a little longer.  It included:

-  Evidence 2 lecture
-  Review Evidence notes
-  Evidence Drills
-  Evidnece Drills video
-  Crim Law Set 3 MPQ1
-  Torts Set 3 MPQ1
-  Blog

I didn't finish it all because I spent quite a bit of time learning Evidence.  I have stated before Evidence is frustrating because there are so many rules to learn.  It is not necessarily hard for me it is just lots of memorizing.

Good luck everyone!
