Big Girl Work Bag

So after I got the good news (aka found out I passed the bar), I decided I would treat myself to a big girl work bag. I am a bit of a bag addict so I had done some research before on various bags and briefcases. I knew I would be spending more money than I usually do on this bag so I wanted to make sure I got a good quality one. I saw a couple of quality leather bags, but I did not want to spend a bazillion dollars on a bag (I am not a rich attorney yet lol). I needed a roomy bag because I want it to hold client files, note pads, a planner, my iPad, pens, and anything else I might need during a normal work day.

I decided to go to the mall and see if I could find a bag. Now I live in a small big city, so my shopping choices are limited. I went to all the department stores and did not find anything the first look around. I went back to Dillard’s a second time because they were having a 25% off sale on all Coach bags. One of the bags I had read about were Coach bags. I ended up getting help from a sales associate, who was also a paralegal. She recommended a large black Saffiano bag. It is a gigantic black leather bag. She had told me that a teacher and woman who traveled a lot both bought a bag.

I ended up getting the bag. It is a gorgeous leather and looks like it will stand the test of time. I have not had a chance to actually use the bag as I intended, so I am excited when that day will come.


Coach Saffiano



As you can tell by the title of the post, I passed my bar exam. I am on cloud 10 right now lol. I actually found out yesterday that I passed. I was at work when I got a Facebook message from one of my classmates saying the results were up. My heart started beating a mile a minute. I still had about 30 minutes left at work and I was unsure whether or not I wanted to check it while at work. I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead and look. When I saw my number and the pass next to it I wanted to like scream, flip, cartwheel, throw graffiti…I wanted to do it all.

I told the people at my job and they were soooo happy for me (and that is one of the reasons why I enjoy working there). Of course I told my parents and they were very excited and proud of me. I even made my granddaddy cry, but tears of joy. I got so many kind and congratulatory words on Facebook.

I just got off the phone with my best friend and we were talking about how surreal it feels to be like actual adults. She is working in the field of therapy, but can totally relate to how I am feeling. We are about to have our own clients that we are responsible for. I do not think it will really hit me until I get my first client. Then I may have a mini freak-out, but will pull myself together and help my client.

I am really looking forward to this next chapter in my life. I hope everyone had good bar results!
