Patience is not one of my strongest qualities. I lack a certain ability to wait. I am always surprisingly irritated when people need extra time to complete tasks, and surprisingly unhappy when it comes to sitting still to wait. However, since I have not passed the bar I feel like I must sit quietly and bide my time. It’s a game of patience and persistence. Persistence is something I am intimately familiar with, but the patience that is required for retaking this exam with grace and dignity is something I am struggling with.
Despite my frustration, a friend told me “one set back, dust your ass off and keep going. you’ve got this” and somehow it made it just a bit better.
So. This week, I am getting back up and patiently working through all the things that must be done.
