399 Days till I plan to be a Licensed Architect.
I am starting to get into the groove. Here I am on a saturday when I have the kids and my husband is home that I break away and come to Starbucks and study…EARLY, no doubt! Even though I would rather be at home.
I have found that I am much more successful about studying when I leave the house and have very few distractions. I am not tempted to address questions from the kids, to do the dishes or the laundry or randomly start cleaning bathrooms as a way of procrastinating on studying. (trust me I have done this!) I find that leaving the house and isolating myself is about the only way I can motivate myself and remove mostly all distractions.
I got to Starbucks this morning a little before 10 am and will plan to study until about 2:45. That’s 4 hours and 45 minutes of studying under my belt for Saturday, not bad at all.
So I took a practice exam this morning and I got 42 out of 61 correct. So that is 68%. Not bad… I know that is still not passing but that is pretty good when you are studying. I have gone in to take an exam and passed it, but failed the practice exam the day before. So that being said… I don’t feel bad about my score.
Area’s that I apparently need to work on are:
Soils and Foundations
Stormwater / run-off coefficients
Parking slopes/Streets Drainage
Types of streets
…and a few other things.
So at least I know what I need to review. 🙂
Once I leave here I can go play with “My Boys” Cole, Landon, Nicholas and Brandt! We are going bowling, one of our favorite past times in the summertime! 🙂
