Done and done....
Yesterday was the last Sunday, the fourth Sunday in the grueling rite of passage for all law graduates and prospective lawyers in the Philippines known as the Bar Examinations.
Amidst the cacophony of cheering fraternities, fireworks, drums, brass bands, and beer being sprayed everywhere, I left DLSU thankful and relieved that it's all over.
What's done is done.
Five months of continuous study, four Sundays of rigorous exams.
And now it's all over.
If you think this pen is looking kinda drained, you should have seen me after the exams.
In hindsight, with regard to all of the tests, there were quite a number of questions that I wish could have answered better.
Retrospection can be that way, make you second guess yourself.
But there's no use crying over spilled milk.
I put in my best effort, and that's all I can probably ask for.
I think I put up a pretty good fight. Not in any way a 100% sure effort, probably not even 90% or 80%, but a pretty good fight nonetheless.
Impressions? It was far more difficult than I remembered it, or anticipated it to be. I don't know. Maybe I'm just getting old. I'm far better prepared now than I ever was, but that didn't seem to make any difference as far as the perceived difficulty of the exams are concerned.
Well, it's out of my hands now, and I leave my fate to God's infinite wisdom.
To everyone who offered their support, encouragement and prayers, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I wish I can say with all certainty that I will hurdle these exams, and that your confidence in me is well placed, but alas, I cannot. I was never really the sharpest knife in the drawer, though I hope determination will take up the slack.
Rest assured that I gave it my all, and if fate would decline me once more this opportunity to be a member of one of the noblest professions, I will surely try again.
Again, my heartfelt thanks.
For truth, justice, and God's greater glory.
