After all the studying and long hours put into making sure I didnt completely fail statistics, the exam was written on Sunday morning (I literally worked for the enitre duration of Saturday and woke up early to do a last minute refresh on Sunday morning, much to the delight of the kittens who thought it was great fun to have me up so early to "play with" on a Sunday morning)
I learnt a long time ago not to comment on how well or how badly I think I did in exams, because, as a rule of thumb, the opposite almost always occurs.
This (or the opposite of it) was painfully experienced by a Supersport presenter recently who proudly stated "I always get it wrong, so I am going to say that New Zealand will DEFINITELY win the quarter final of the Cricket World Cup in the game against the Proteas..." we know how that turned out. Fail.
Anyway, the best part of the exam was right at the end when the finish line was in sight. I wrote to the best of my abilities given the time (and the fact that I had been in Zanzibar for a good 10 days during the course of the subject!) and was able to respond to everything asked, whether correctly or not!
So we shall see...
Anyway, that is done, the group assignment is complete and the momentum now shifts to the next block, which is Macro-economics for me (I have the credit for Financial accounting already, much to my group's dismay)
The frantic pace over the last two weeks at work (with statistics thrown in on top) has now slowed down to only a mild panic and the normal course of work is kicking in again. This means new projects to deliver, financial reviews to complete and general strategy type stuff to do. I am much less concerned about macro-economics as I actually enjoy the subject, so that should be fun. (watch this space)
This weekend we are off to the Waterberg with my family and I am looking forward to finding some form on the golf course at Elements and potentially Zebula as well. With this comes the responsibility of ranking these courses and so the Golf Digest Ranking panel card shall be accompanying me on the journey.
It will be nice to have a little break after the last two weeks and I'm definitely looking forward to it.
On that note, the running will be kicked off again (temporarily dampened by the beaches of Zanzibar and crazy, over the top working hours...
Now to find a new battery for my Garmin watch...
