The Verdict is in …

The whole past year of studying and busting my butt in class really paid off. Not only did I pass my test (yay!) I got a 2+/2+!! (The actual numbers only really have meaning to my past- and present coworkers … but trust me, it’s an extra $150 in my pocket each month so it’s definitely a good thing!) This is the first time I have ever gotten scores like that. I went from a 2/1+ (43/38 respectively) to a 2+/2+ (46/46). I think I’m in shock … it hasn’t quite sunk in yet. I’m so happy that I have a whole year of so much less stress, plus now I have even more motivation to keep on studying. Life has been so blessed this year for both me and Andrew, in many ways, and this was just the icing on the cake :)

(I took the above photo in Pusan, Korea back in 2003. I thought it was appropriate, given the topic of my post.)

    Hi Niki-I just wanted to drop by and wish you a well deserved CONGRATULATIONS on your scores. I know how hard you have studied and you deserve that extra bit of money in your pocket. Plus, you get to put on your other chevron! Really, CONGRATS! Don’t know if it means anything to you at all, but I’m proud of you. Have a good one. Bri (K-12)

    Congratulations! Dad told me you called him and was all excited; yay! I have no idea what 2+/2+ means, since I’m not an avid military person or anything, but obviously it’s a good thing. You go girl!
