"We Were Best Buddies"

With the bar exam a looming specter a few months away you may be thinking of going into a deep dark hole until after the Bar. Don't. Your friends can be a tremendous fountain of strength and support. The friendship between Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia illustrates a deep and supportive friendship.

The Justices often spent time with each other outside the court room. Ginsburg and Scalia often spent New Year's Eve with their spouses. Upon Justice Scalia's death, Justice Ginsburg told reporters that "We were best buddies." The Justices shared a love of Opera, even serving as extras in a party scene of Richard Strauss’ “Ariadne auf Naxos” in 2009.

So remember to take a little time out of each day to enjoy the passions that make life enjoyable.  For more tips on maintaining wellness during bar prep, checkout Gallagher's LibGuide on Wellness.
