It all comes down to this....


Chris begins the oh-so-anticipated bar exam today, tomorrow, & thursday. Three straight days of 8hr testing. He has been studying for two straight months, non-stop. I barely even know him anymore! All of this, for one goal, to pass the bar exam.

He is nervous. Although he has absolutely no reason to be. He has put in the time and is a great test taker. I admire Chris' dedication & ability to focus. Eating, Breathing, Sleeping the bar. I could NEVER do that. He amazes me. Even though I know all this, I am nervous too! Probably because I know how important it is to him.

Ahhhh this freaking test needs to be over so I can have my husband back, so he can sleep at night, so I can sleep at night, and so life can consist of more than just this photo above! (our apartment really does look like that)

Good luck babe, I know you wont need it, and you probably wont even see this til after the fact. But you are gonna do great....as long as you dont pass out, cry, or study so much you burn out...(no really, people start crying when they take this test)....WOWZA!

He will blow through it. I can't imagine only doing one thing for 2 months. I would go crazy! After the test is finished he will be like, "wait, I thought this was supposed to be hard." He couldn't be more prepared. I am so hapy for you guys. This is the day you have been waiting for. Well, I guess Thursday is the day you have been waiting for, for the past three years. We have talked about how glad we are that we don't have to take the bar almost every day for the past few weeks. Chris is much more cut out for this type of thing then we are. We can't wait to hear how it went and to party in Cancun with you in 4 days!!!!

O boy! I hope the Bar goes well. I used to work at BYU Law School, so I saw lots of students getting ready for the stress of a lifetime. At least it will be over soon!

I actually thought of you and chris this last week and gained a new appreciation for you guys. i had to take this horrific teacher exam but it was only 2 hours long and i studied for about 2 weeks and thought i was going to die. Then i kept thinking, how do people do the bar and the mcat when theyre married? I felt like such a wench and that i could never do anything with adam cuz i had to study! anyways, we admire your sacrifice and chris' ability to take a 3 day 8 hour test! holy cow! i cant imagine! good luck chris! im sure hell do great!

Good luck Chris! Trev always says you are his smartest friend so I'm sure you'll be fine. You law school boys are such braniacs. Worst story I've heard is about the guy who was a registered nurse who stopped taking his test to give CPR to a fellow test taker while all the other students just plunged forward, and they wouldn't let him make up the time. Ya. What?

I hear the pass rate for Feb. was only 33%! Good thing you married a genius so you don't have to worry about him making it into that small percentage. Good luck, Chris! Relax for a little while once this is all over. (or at least til November when you get your results!) :)

Mark and/or Lisa said...

Well, how'd he feel like it went? Didn't see you guys on Sunday to ask.

Jen and Bryan said...

Small world! I know Mark from school (BYU). We hung out a lot for a while. How's he doing? I hope well. Any plans to come to Phoenix any time soon? It's LOVELY this time of year. :)
