Almost There


This last week between work, I’ve been studying like mad.

Or trying to. I admit that when there is studying that require algebra skills, however simple the problem, I tend to daydream and spend four times the amount really needed. It’s terrible really. Numbers are not my jam.

So what have I been studying for, you wonder. Haven’t I graduated?

Well yes, I now have a diploma in Exercise Science, which is fabulous, but it doesn’t really make me a credible personal trainer. This is quite silly since I know lots of people who do a two month personal training course and are considered certified…and yet, I’ve taken two years of schooling and am not.

Breakfast on the go

Anywho…the day before yesterday I packed my oatmeal and iced green tea for breakfast and made the trek to the big city to take my theory exam with CSEP.

Despite all the algebra involved, I happily passed! To celebrate, I may or may not have gone shopping in the mall afterwards. Guilty is charged.

Almost there

Now all I have to do is the practical exam for it and I’ll be certified! Hopefully in a month all of this will be done!


Everyday be your best
