So hey, I passed the Colorado bar. Results were released this morning. I have mixed feelings about it. I’m proud of myself, of course, because taking the bar exam is never easy. And this gives me more options, which is always good.
But I have to admit, there was a small (or maybe not so small?) part of me that was hoping I’d failed. That would have allowed me to just say, “Well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.” Sadly, I don’t think I’ve ever failed a test in my life. I own tests. It’s just how I’m made. It seems I can’t help it, because I’d be lying if I said that I tried my absolute hardest on that test. Sigh.
I did get kind of excited about one of the MPT questions, which asked me to write a letter to a congressman lobbying for my client’s position on a piece of proposed legislation. I legitimately had fun with that one. It may have been the first time in the history of ever when someone was smiling while taking the bar. Which leads me to believe maybe I should be a lobbyist or work at a think tank or something in the realm of “I write persuasive pieces about things I actually care about for causes that I actually think are worthy.” In other words, nothing like my old job.
I’m not sure I actually needed to take the bar exam for that kind of job, but that’s ok. I’m also not sure if there’s anything like that in Denver. So I’m still treading water, which is fine with me right now. I’m really enjoying myself these days.
On a totally unrelated note, I was Freshly Pressed yesterday! Awesome!! Apparently they added my post in the middle of the night, because I woke up yesterday morning to 147 email notifications and they just kept coming all day! I truly appreciated the irony of receiving hundreds of “Likes” and comments on my post about my efforts to let go of the desire for “Likes” and comments. That was a true challenge. I was Freshly Pressed last fall and I did do a better job of letting go this time around. I only refreshed my stats a few times yesterday, and I let myself have fun with Adeline without constantly checking my email to see how many new “Likes” and comments I had. So, while it did feed the addiction, I think I can get back on track pretty easily.
Also, I wanted to thank Mondays with Mac for hosting the Postcards from Parenthood blog carnival. I didn’t win, but I loved the post that the carnival inspired. Be sure to check out the other posts as well, there are some really great ones.
Finally, my humble little blog is now listed on the Top Mommy Blogs directory. I’ve added a button to the sidebar for voting – all you have to do is click on the button and it will register a vote for me. I would love your votes. You can vote every day! I’m really uncomfortable promoting myself in situations like this, so this is probably the last you’ll hear from me about it. But I might surprise myself.
OK, that’s all for now. Off to
update my stats and check for “Likes” play with Adeline!
