Guest Writer: This First Week of Bar Prep Has Been Insane.

Note: The views expressed herein belong solely to the author and are not necessarily those of Critical Pass.

I have officially started bar prep. My schedule is printed, my binders are organized by topic, and my social media accounts are blocked 10 hours a day. This first week of bar prep has been insane. I won't sugarcoat it... bar prep is a deep immersion into a lot of topics over a very short period of time. I'm not sure that I was mentally prepared for what I just got into, BUT I believe in the learning process that Themis has designed to get me through this test. I have 65 days to get ready.

I've already pulled out my Critical Pass flashcards. I love that I have space to take notes on the cards. I'll probably try out the mobile app this weekend while I'm out of town.

These next two months are going to be intense. I've done everything I can to stay focused. I think I'm going to incorporate going to the gym into my schedule. Stay tuned to see how that works out, lol. My exam motto is #OneandDone. I want to take this test once and be done with it. Check in next week to see how things are going on my #JourneytoEsquire and to make sure I haven't pulled out my hair yet.
