I'm a guy, and a normie at that, and when I discuss my emotional state it's usually anecdotally. So picture a sine wave. Yesterday, I felt like the zero line was a water line and I was completely below it. Indeed, if you look around me now I appear to be drowning in paper. It's a disturbing feeling to say the least. And I know every one of you out there studying for this thing can empathize.
What gets me down about the challenge that's currently in front of me is that I'll never know if I know enough. And then when I'm done, I won't know my results (hopefully) except for a "Thumbs up!" from the Bar.
Feedback. I like feedback. That's one reason why I liked the IT business. Sure, I'll admit that it's a kind of weakness wanting to be constantly reassured that you're on the right track and making progress. But when you've become used to something, it requires an effort to get used to something else. It's like trying to pull a u-turn in the Titanic while you're simultaneously tearing it down and rebuilding it into an aircraft carrier.
At the end of the day, all I can do is echo the sentiments that of a lot of you have expressed when you've thanked your fellow BarBloggers for their commiseration and support.
So, "Thank you for your commiseration and support!"
Now, it's almost 10 a.m. and I've wasted two hours of study time. It's time to quit my bitching and get back to work. The dragons of Civ Pro and Evidence are dead. Now it's time to carve up the carcasses so my family can survive the long Winter.
