Good news

desks-from-im-spartacus

Short and sweet today. After four weeks of waiting, I heard today that I passed my Psychology Board Exam! It was pretty close but I passed it. (I keep repeating the words: I passed, I passed, I passed). I needed 70% and I squeaked in with 72%. Now of course I’m very curious to know about that 28% that I didn’t get but I’ll settle for the score I got. P and will celebrate tomorrow evening but other than that it’s business as usual.

The next step is registering for “independent practice” even though I’m taking a one-year contract with the military in the interim. The thought behind that is to buy some time, build up contacts and experience (and finances) so that I can tackle the big, brave world of private practice with renewed vigour in 12 months’ time. For now though: yay!

    Pete, good for you. What a relief that must be after the long, long haul.

    I’m sending you a virtual toast!!

    YAY!! Pete, congratulations. The thing about passing, as you say, is that you pass — it doesn’t matter what the number is. I love things like that. You are going to have a wonderful private practice and I think you’re so smart to approach it carefully, as you describe. xoxox
