I actually took the news way better than I expected. Obviously I would have loved to have good news to share, but like I said before, I wasn't shocked. I didn't do everything bar/bri told me to do, I didn't do any practice essays, etc. Basically I slacked off and I paid the price for it. (seriously though - I got my score report. I did well on the multiple choice and totally bombed the essays. Duh. I'm an idiot for not doing practice essays. Double Duh.)
As of right now I am 75% sure I am going to take the Illinois bar again in February. Since I only work about 20 hours a week I will continue working at my job while I study. I am probably not going to take bar/bri again since I found myself dicking around on twitter most of the 3 hour lectures anyway.
And fortunately/unfortunately a couple of my friends failed too, so I am not the only one and definitely won't be studying by myself this time around.
Without a doubt the very worst part is that I have to wait so long until I can take it again... not until the end of February, which means no results until April. I wish I could take it again next month and get the results right away. The waiting is by far the worst part.
And now so this post isn't all depressing (seriously I'm considering re-naming my blog to "White Girl Problems: Tales from the trenches"), here is a pic of my beautiful friends who were married on Saturday. The wedding was beautiful and so much fun. And the bride will be graduating in December so we will take the February bar together!
Hope everyone else had a good weekend!
I promise to be back tomorrow with pretty pictures of Elle. :)
