It's Been a Long, Long Time

...since I've taken a test.  I graduated from college in 1999 and don't think I've taken any kind of test since then.

All that will change next week.

I need to get my insurance license for my job.  I've been studying a bit here and there, but not like I'd like to or need to.  I guess all the painting and house projects have been distracting me a bit.  Jamie sent Tara and I to a class today to prepare us for the test.  Let me tell you...this guy was amazing!

I wanted to go and take the test right after class was done!  I've been so concerned that I'm not going to be ready for it, but he gave us such good information and in a way that even I could understand it.  I was really surprised by all that I already knew even with my little bit of studying.  We took practice quizzes and I only missed two on all of them put together.  YIPPEE!!!!!!!

The test is scheduled for Wednesday at 2:00.  Please pray for me!  Even though I feel I'm more prepared after taking the class, he did tell us that only 53% of people pass and that includes people that are repeating the exam.  BUT out of those that take his test, eight out of ten pass the first time.

No worries, Erin. We all know you are an excellent smarty pants :-) I have to laugh though. You are totally on the career path that I could have taken. I was offered a very similar job a long time ago but decided that insurance was SO not my thing (you know how bad I am at sitting still & paying attention to details). I'm excited to see you figuring our your place in that industry. I'm sure you're going to shine!
Have a great weekend!
