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 :)
