The end is so near I can almost taste it! Just one more week of classes and on the fourth of July I will take my final test. If I pass it, I am done with all of my course work and I can get back to writing by the second week of July.
I am so happy and nervous at the same time. First off, I have no idea how long it will take to get the results of my test. The last one took a month. If I pass this test, everything goes back to normal. I will no longer be a student. I will get to just focus on teaching my ESL classes and writing! I cannot imagine anything better. Well, if I made enough money writing and could just do that, that would be better, but that is the only thing that comes to mind. That is my goal I'm working towards. One day!
But for now I need to get back to studying for my test. I have taken a few practice tests and I keep making about 75% on the test, which is passing by a safe margin. I only need to make 52% to pass so I should be good to go but I would much rather spend the next seven days studying and being overly prepared than to get cocky and end up tanking the test and pushing all of my plans for writing back even more than I have had to the last two years.
So, please, stick with me a little while longer. If you've gone along with me to this point you might as well see how it all turns out, right? I have some plans to do many things to thank my loyal followers for sticking with me through this whole mishegoss. Details will be coming soon but I'm thinking contests for autographed books, more free short stories, and few more possiblities.
I will have to wait a little while longer for the audio versions of the books. Right now our audio studio is a bit too noisy to record. Our neighbors are doing renovations on the building that is on the other side of the wall of our sound studio. There is no way we can get a clean recording right now. I have no idea how much longer the construction is going to go on but if it's still going full force when I am through with my class, I will go next door and ask them if they can give me a timeline because Dianne and I need to get back to work on the recordings.
If you happen to think of it on the fourth of July, think a good thought for me that I pass this test and can get back to doing what I love most, writing these stories for you! Thank you for sticking with me. You have no idea how much I appreciate it!
