Today's bar study affirmation: I can see clearly now.
There is a song beloved by us old heads written by Johnny Nash. His lyrics speak to where you are in your bar study journey.
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiny day.
Let the lyrics of this song speak to where you are in your bar study journey. When you started this journey clouds darkened your path. There were so many rules to memorize, there were subjects that you did not study in law school, some you'd never seen or heard of. It was scary and you had no idea how you could learn it all.
I think I can make it now, the pain is gone.
All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin' for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sunshiny day.
Today the clouds are gone. You know what will be tested on the bar exam. Your focus has now moved to memorizing those rules in the manner that they will be tested. The rest of the stretch isn't as scary. It just requires hours of focus and memorization. You have tools, you have a plan, and you have you. There's nothing but clear skies ahead.
Look all around, there's nothin' but [bar cards]
Look straight ahead, nothin' but [bar cards.
It's gonna be a BRIGHT BRIGHT SUNSHINY DAY!!
