I noticed that I did not give you all an update on my very long application process, which led me to take note how people (including myself) are quick to complain and not as quick to share good news.
I GOT ACCEPTED 🎊
I did a little more than that when I found out…. 🤗
So let me fill you all in:
I waited and waited and waited some more. And by waited I mean was on hold for an hour and 35 minutes. I finally got through to a person and she told me that my application was sitting on someone’s desk with all the paperwork just waiting. For what? Absolutely nothing!
So the very kind lady agreed to put it on the top of the pile. That would mean that I should have a response within the next 24 hours. Wrong I was.
There’s just something about working with government officials that they try and make it as hard as possible to get whatever it is you are asking from them. But if you ask them they will tell you they are just trying to do their job. So about a week or two later, I finally received my acceptance. It came with such relief and stress all at once. Now I actually have to study.
Sure enough I tried to create my NASBA account but the site happened to be down the day I tried.
And then that was finally done and then I got locked out and then the security controls on my laptop were getting in the way and I couldn’t download study materials … don’t ask.
However: I got through it all and I am now studying my brain cells off to try and past the hardest exam in the world.
Yay me ☺️
