I’m back! My test is done! It was on Friday. It’s a pretty intense experience – 8 hours of testing, 100 questions. It was open-book and you can bring in whatever references you want. It was pretty wild to see everyone wheeling around their carry-on bags full of books (myself included). I actually had someone at work tell me I was lucky it was open book, like somehow this made everything easier. FOR REAL? That only means that they can test you on pretty much anything. Doesn’t anyone remember how much harder the open book exams were in school? The failure rate for the environmental exam hovers around 40%. Good times!
So how did it go? It suuuuucked. I’m pretty sure that I failed and will be retaking the test in October. There were just too many questions where I was like, “Cool, just gonna bubble in ‘A'” for me to feel good about passing. But honestly, I’m so elated that it’s over with that I don’t even care that I probably failed it. There are worse things in life than potentially failing a test. I am just really happy that I tried. Now time to wait 8-10 weeks for the results.
And I just have to give a shout out to my family and my fiancé for all their support! They were amazing!
Anyway, my Willow Tank is done!! Lookit!
This was my very first time making a shirt. It was pretty intimidating but my teacher did a good job of stepping us through the process. It was also my first time sewing darts. My darts are really wonky and apparently sewing in a straight line is still a difficulty for me. But I’m so happy it’s done! I finished sewing the bias tape to one of the armholes and collar this evening since we ran out of time in class.
I must admit I tried really hard to do the “thoughtfully contemplating my shopping list” pose that everyone on Instagram seems to do when modeling their makes. You can tell I’m trying really hard not to laugh in the photo above! Fiancé took the photos of me and I had to explain to him why I was staring at the ground like this:
I hope you all had a great weekend! Please catch me up on all the crafty things you’ve been doing. I’m glad to be back. Talk to you all soon!
* I don’t even like this song all that much, but I just can’t help belting out the chorus from time to time. THIS IS MY TRUTH.
