It's almost too good, you know? I'm profoundly grateful, because if the month before had sucked any harder, I'd be inside out. But like every gambler knows, a run of good luck never lasts. And I need every drop of luck I can get to face my board exam next week.
It's a 12 hour exam. No one has ever finished it faster than 10 hours. I have to get 80%+ on all sections in order to become board-certified. I've been studying very hard - honestly, harder than I studying for my PhD qualifying exams. (Some of you will remember that I woke up with my face paralyzed from the stress of those. I want to pass, and I need to pass. I need every credential I can get.
But whatever deity is responsible for this week, I thank you.
