I hate you...just kidding!
I'm just jealous.  Congrats and good luck on the bar.
Are you planning on taking the bar this Feb?

Thanks!  (A lot of people hate me today, I'm sure.)  I won't take the bar until July--I'm taking master's degree courses next semester. 

I keep oscillating between ectasy, relief, and a little bit of pride.  There's not even a hint of "oh so sad, this is the end."   :)

I hear ya on the "oh so sad, this is the end."
If you think about it, now you will have judges drilling on you instead of your profs.

If I was in your shoes, I would be oscillating because I was drunk!

Congratulations!!  That is awesome news.

So...let me pick your large and overstuffed brain.  I am a 1L.  In your opinion, did it get any easier after your first year, or is that just a vicious rumor that is told to 1L's in order to get them to come back for their 2L year? ;)

Studying and the class work is easier because you know what to do. 
The subject matter is tougher and a lot more.  But somehow, you get through it.

My own experience is a little skewed because I went from being a part-time 1L to a full-time 2L, and since then I've taken 16 (or 17) credits every semester, 3-4 classes each summer.  In my opinion, the work doesn't get any more difficult--there's just a lot more of it.

The best part is when you can start taking electives in the areas you're really interested in.  Hooray for my Baseball and the Law class.   :D
