Life is so much better with supportive people in it.

I've got a dozen coworkers stopping by to tell me good luck on my exams tonight. I've gotten texts and emails from friends and church friends with the same thing. And it makes me feel SO MUCH MORE confident walking into a really hard exam.

When I moved forward (a big step) toward getting the job of my dreams earlier in the month, it was the same thing - a single email sent and I had a whole slew of congratulations and phone calls and encouragement/shared excitement by the next morning.

It is remarkable how different life is when you surround yourself with uplifting, encouraging, supportive people. How much better it is.

May I always strive to be one of those uplifting, encouraging, supportive people to those around me.

I'd wish you good luck but I don't think you'll need it.

One down, one to go. And I feel like it went well.

Pretty soon, two down, all passed.

Great job!

After ridding myself of the dark cloud of doom and gloom, I have vowed to only have happy, positive people in my life. As you said, makes such a huge difference.

Good luck on the next one.

I try to surround myself with people that lift me while also impacting their lives. It builds upon itself.

Well, the first one (harder of the two) went pretty well. It was much easier than the midterm - four essays, we had to pick three. The midterm was 6 essays and a heap of short answer. I feel pretty good about how I did.

Second was a joke. It was a tech class, pretty basic for me. The final was 20 multiple choice. It took me 4 minutes (it was on the computer, so I literally watched the little clock count as I went )

18/20 on the final, 99% in that class overall. I should get the grades for my other 3 classes next week or the week after.
