I've been slowly working on the bird ornaments. They are super cute, no?

And I made a reversible coffee cup cozy.

Finals are almost over. I took my first HESI exam yesterday. Holy crap that was a hard ass test. You think you know things and then you take a test like that. I only got a 79% on it. Not a stellar grade and if they were basing it on the points I don't know if I passed or not. Crazy. Is nursing school over yet? Another semester down, 3 more to go!

The birds are very cute! When will you know if you passed the test? If they grade on a curve, it might make a difference.

Well, technically I didn't pass. You had to get an 80% to pass and I got 79%. So freakin' close! The good news is only 7 of the 40 students actually passed. I feel a little better about myself when others fail with me. We will remediate and retake the exam in a few weeks. Lucky me!

I love the birds - and the cozy! You're so talented! :)

Good luck on the retaking of the exam. I hate those tests that make you feel inadequate! :(

Next week I will be in a class from 8 to 6, Monday through Friday, then testing for the Microsoft Office Specialist Master Certification. It is the "expert" level of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. By Friday, my brain will be mush!
