BAR REVIEWEE DESIDERATA

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in the library. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all the subjects coverage. Write your answers quietly and clearly; and listen to your professors, even the seemingly boring and uninteresting ones; they, too, have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive fellow reviewer, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own studies, however, hopeful; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution on who you love; for the jurist method does not allow you during the review. But let this not blind you on what love really does; For this disciplines persons; and for loving someone gives you strength to do heroism. Be yourself. Learn the law not form the books, but by application. Like love, to learn is to experience it. And in such you grow and mature, for you cant love without having first loving yourself. Take kindly the counsel of your coach, gracefully surrendering the things you thought were right. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with past failures. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a Spartan discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of Jurist, no less than the those from U.P. and Ateneo; you have a right to top the bar. And whether or not it is clear to you, there is that possibility that you will be a top notcher. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. Whatever your study schedule and book you are reading, in the noisy confusion of the preparation for the bar, keep peace with your soul. With all its frantic, kaba, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world, especially with you in it. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
