Hello everyone!

This last week has found me in better spirits than I have been in for a while. I would like to think that’s simply because I have AUD behind me for now, but in actuality the AUD test really helped me.

All in all, out of the three tests I’ve taken, I walked out of AUD, a full 2 hours early, feeling the most confident I ever have.

Now I just need to focus on BEC, which I take in 4 weeks. Eek! And then I’ll allow myself to be annoyed at how long the scoring process takes.

Oh, and by the way, while metal detectors were placed into use on July 1st in some areas, here in New Mexico we’re not getting them until the end of the month (which doesn’t really surprise me).

So I’ll have to wait until next time to let you know my experience with that. I was thinking of getting a letter from my doctor to prove that I have metal plates in my arm and am not trying to smuggle in prohibited items. Thoughts?

Speaking of studying for BEC, I began that on Monday, and this time I’m following the NINJA Study Planner and have been getting up at least an hour earlier than I’m used to. But rather than fighting it, I know it’s going to be worth it. And besides, studying in a quiet house and being the only one awake is rather peaceful.

That’s really about it for now, so until next time I’ll just be studying away. I wish everyone that’s testing this week good luck!
