My exam went ok (I took in on October 30th). I think I gave it my best shot for the most part but I probably could have used my time better, answering questions that I knew how to do more fully. Like most people I’m probably hovering around the border between pass and no pass. I thought I was prepared but I guess bringing three calculators to the exam doesn’t really help in most circumstances.
It’s been nice not having to study, at least for the time being. Although I haven’t been getting very far on my to-do list. Like wedding planning. Or finding a new apartment. Or Christmas shopping. Or getting back into exercise. (I tried lifting weights today and had to drop five pounds from the dumbbells.) To feel more accomplished, I tried doing the more simpler tasks on my list – like seeing Interstellar. I saw it yesterday. It was so good! I was tearing up at the end. I can see why some people might fault it but I think its emotional feelings of wonder, exploration, and loss were right on.
I was able to do a painting for Lauren for her birthday. It was my how-I-wish-my-proposal-turned-out painting.
