Building friction to make a spark

Is there anyone else taking the bar exam on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 who is up at 4:00a.m. today?  It seems like caffeine isn’t even necessary this close to the exam; the constant pressure of the inevitable testing day is about all it takes.

I am clearly convinced that studying for the bar exam is so much more than committing substantive law to memory.  First, it is important to understand how the questions are written and to know what to determine when reviewing the alternatives in the MBE questions and what are the key points examiners want to read in the MEE.  Iowa has the MPT and I do intend to spend time reviewing BarBri’s lecture and outline and doing practice tests, but not until this weekend.

In addition to substantive law and understanding the method of assessment, I think the most important part of the bar review process is self-care.

I think I am like most people when it comes to stress and tormenting myself.  If I am overwhelmed or stressed about something present or in the imminent future, I minimalize all of my successes leading to where I am.

I started blogging in October 2010.  I loved it immediately.  I wanted to blog my entire 1L year but there was not a single minute available between being a new mom, new law student and a new resident of Des Moines.  Instead of blogging, I spent my 1L summer writing a book called “Law School Mom”.  My intent was to take what I would have been blogging had I had the time.  I am really proud of my book and hope you consider making it part of your e-book collection.

I like to go gangbusters when I find something I enjoy.
