Good News/ Bad News

I don't have time for a full post, so here's the shortened version until tomorrow night (or Friday).

GOOD NEWS: The Austin RWA writing retreat was AWESOME! So relaxing and fun. I managed to write like a fiend and I got 31 pages done on FP, which included getting a lot of little plot kinks worked out.

BAD NEWS: I had to come back to the real world and I can't work on FP again until the weekend.

GOOD NEWS: I got my scores back from another contest for RR and I came in 5th.

BAD NEWS: Only the top 3 finalists go on to an editor.

GOOD NEWS: I think I still love my job.

BAD NEWS: I'm tired- like "it's a Thursday afternoon in late April" tired.

GOOD NEWS: I've been reviewing ESL stuff for my job and I'm getting excited about all the things I want to do with the kids and all the things I have to do for the state.

BAD NEWS: I failed my 1st attempt at an online test for teaching.

GOOD NEWS: I can take another attempt.

BAD NEWS: I still hate taking tests, am not a good test taker, and I should be studying now.

I am glad you still like your job. If everyone liked their job, it would be a better world wouldn't it?

Your good wishes helped pull me through, Kelly!

Teri, I said I THOUGHT I still liked my job. That was yesterday. Today was okay. Tomorrow may be different. :)~
