Remember when I decided to change jobs because I'd been in the same job for 20 years and felt it was time for a change?
Well the new job requires I pass a certification test in the first two years. I began studying, and I took the practice test for the first of 20 lessons. I got a 68. I. Failed. I failed the test. After I studied! I thought I understood all that material. Granted I didn't have it memorized, and I tried to do it from memory.
So I tried again. This time I really studied hard. I wrote out all my notes and studied them and then referred to my notes during the test.
I failed. Worse. A 66 this time.
I m concerned because these are great study materials. If I get a 90% on the practice tests then I'm pretty set to at least pass the real test. I just didn't realize I wouldn't be able to get a 70%, much less a 90%.
And I know, this is adversity, this is a challenge, I can do this. You know how I'm going to do this? I'm taking this practice test again, open book this time, and if I fail I'm going to take 3 hours tomorrow just to listen to all the on-line materials again. I just need a success at this point.
That reminds me, I'm making babka again tomorrow.
I told my brother I flunked my first two practice tests and he said, "Welcome to failure!" So, hello Land of Failure. Here we study all day and eat babka.
