What A Wonderful Morning

Why yes, it is a wonderful morning. Why, you ask? Well, for starters I passed my Security+ certification exam (which was a real bear), so today I am basking in the glow of success. Now I merely have one more exam to finish and a huge paper to write (not as fun as my writing projects talked about here, but anyway) and then I am done. Even though I go to an online college, I still plan on going up to my college's physical location and walking across the stage in a cap and gown to get my little piece of paper. The anticipation within me is boiling over every minute - its safe to say I cannot wait to finish this very long road.

It's also a nice morning because I am taking a week off of school. I'm not going to do any studying, I'm not going to begin my paper yet. I'm just going to sit back and let my mind rest, and in the midst of all this spare time I will be working on my WiPs. Now that is something to celebrate.

My last post erased any thoughts I have been harboring about being a weird writer. Evidently there are enough of us out there that are also not completely in control of their characters' fates. Kind of weird when you think about it, but at least all of us are weird together.

In any event, it is a sunshiny day, yesterday was payday (always cause for celebration), and I passed my test. So take a cue from me and find a couple things to celebrate on this fine Saturday - even if its nothing more than shouting out about your current WiP. These are the days that make every other one worth slogging through. Enjoy a happy day on me!

Congrats, Eric! My achievements for today are of the WoW variety - just finished up Sholozar Basin, lol.

Guppster - Thank you. I'm drinking my share of DC as we speak.

Andrea - Awesome. If you like WoW, do you know you can play Peggle inside of WoW during those long flights? If you haven't played Peggle btw, check it out. It's a very addicting but awesome game. And there's an addon now to add it to WoW.

Yay for awesome mornings! And for passing your test. I celebrated my last name today and went to a Scottish Festival. Oh what a day filled with bagpipes and shortbread!
