I was one of those who waited for the results, not because I'm one of those who took the exam, but because there are people I know who took the exam. It could have added a another lawyer to this family.
It was on February 28 that I started checking for updates but then I found out that the results will be released on the following day at 2 PM.
It was morning when me and my husband we're trying to search for leaks or any information on the results, but to no avail.
At almost 2 PM, we turned the t.v. on and tuned in to our national news channel. It was just quite funny though. Because while the chief justice was giving the speech for the release of the results, the trial for his impeachment also started at the same time. And, it was shown both live on t.v. Haha!
Anyway, seeing those barristers waiting for the results also gave me the thrill and agony. Others were praying, while some have seriously anxious looking faces.
When the results were released, there were some who cried (I saw a few wiping tears from their eyes) and some who were almost jumping for joy while talking to somebody on their mobile phones.
*sigh* I wonder when the time will come for me to get to that point.
Anyway, it was quite unfortunate that our "candidate" did not pass. It just may be that the One Above us has a greater plan. It was quite a sad evening when we took our dinner. But, well.. some of us still have our chances. Hopefully, soon.
