Reverse your steps

Tonight, I answered the political law questions for the 2013 bar exam. It took me almost three hours to finish this test because I wrote from 5:33 pm to 6:45 pm and 8:23 to 9:52. I will review my answers when I get home on Thursday. I will also eat with my roommate friend tomorrow evening.

This afternoon, I studied taxation from personal exemptions, capital gains, installment, estate, and partnership. The reviewer had exercises so I also answered the problems. I kept getting wrong answers for the problems with math so I simply stopped answering them. I walked to the dorm and ate seafood pesto pasta and beef burger.

At noon, I asked help from the bar operations commissioner about my clearance and transcript because I am a summer graduate and don't have my grade for my practicum. They have already asked help from the registrar and the appropriate offices so I can submit my bar petition soon and submit my transcript later.

This morning, I slept late because I read fiction and surfed the internet from midnight until 3 am when my roommate friend came from her trip to Baguio. I really have a bad case of insomnia.

Finish Consti 1

This morning, I did not study because I just surfed the internet. But this afternoon, I ate brunch, attended the last commercial law lecture, finished studying up to the judiciary in the library, and ate an early dinner. Then this evening, I  walked around the academic oval, ate dessert, and finished studying for Constitutional Law 1.

Tomorrow, I will start studying the Billof Rights. I will also change my fast review of the bar subjects because I wasn't able to study Political Law and Labor Law these two days. Maybe I should include Sundays in my fast review.


Start bar review

Last week, I finally submitted my Supervised Legal Research paper two months after its deadline. I also started reviewing Constitutional Law and attending Mercantile Law lectures.

Yesterday, I signed my Daily Time Record and submitted it to the Office of the Solicitor General and submitted my accomplishment report to my friend and co-intern whose sister will submit it to the Office of Legal Aid.

Now, I can finally start full-time bar review.

Here's my schedule for bar review:
Political Law - 2nd and 3rd weeks of June
Labor Law - 4th week of June
Civil Law - 1st and 2nd weeks of July
Law on Taxation - 3rd week of July
Mercantile Law - 4th and 5th weeks of July
Remedial Law - 1st and 2nd weeks of August
Criminal Law - 3rd week of August
Legal Ethics and Forms - 4th week of August

There would be mock bar exams at the end of each subject. I switched Remedial L aw and Criminal Law because there would be mock bar exams on the 1st and 2nd weeks of August. In September and October, I would alternate mock bar exams and bar review for each subject.
