I Passed the Texas Bar Exam Giveaway!

Guess what? I passed the Texas Bar Exam!! I found out last Thursday, and I’m incredibly excited about it! So I’m giving away a $20 Amazon Gift Card. Woohoo! Keep reading to enter my Texas Bar Exam Giveaway!

Texas Bar Exam Giveaway

Just to toot my own horn briefly. This is a pretty big deal! The pass rate for the Texas Bar Exam from out-of-state students (like I was) was only 65%. I spent two months studying full-time to take the exam. Then I spent 3 days (THREE WHOLE DAYS!) taking the exam in Fort Worth at the end of February. Then I waited 2 agonizing months (okay, I mostly didn’t even think about it) to find out whether I had passed or not. Now all I have to do is find a job. Ugh. Maybe I’ll host an “I found a job” giveaway if/when that ever happens, because apparently I host giveaways to commemorate big events in my life.

Giveaway starts now, is open to anyone with an email address and ends on Friday at midnight. May the odds be ever in your favor.
