Hey guys! Remember me?
I used to blog here? Ha!
Seriously, though. Where has the time gone... the past few months have been a blur.
I've had to take a step back from blogging and photography to focus on life & work & studies... and I miss my it!
You see, I've work at a local insurance company for the past 8 years. I started at reception and have been lucky to be promoted and shuffled around a few different departments. They decided that this would be the right time to send me for my agent's license. I'm not even joking... if I pass, I will technically be an insurance salesman! lol Funny where life brings you, eh?
Actually, I won't be selling any insurance. I will just be continuing in the underwriting (risk analyst) section... but it will guarantee a pay raise and more responsibilities... so it's excited.
I actually just got my first mark yesterday, and I passed the first exam! Barely... but I did it! Having never even looked at an automobile policy before, I am pretty proud with this first success! I had to travel to Montreal for the exam, which is in FRENCH by the way. 25 tricky questions had to be answered in 60 mins. Not a minute over. I had no idea how intense it would be. I had a pretty good feeling I answered just enough of them right to pass... the rest I know I could have gotten right with just a few more minutes to look over them, knowing I second guessed myself on a lot of them... but no such luck. That one hour felt like 10 mins. I had to just hand in my exam and wait for the results.
Just for fun, this is an example of a question... and this would have been an EASY one:
1 down, 2 to go! My last 2 exams are scheduled for December 9th. Wish me luck!
I know, boring blog post, right? I just wanted to pop in and share my good news! I promise to be back soon with a fun outfit post... I recently celebrated a birthday and treated myself to a pair of Jeffrey Campbell snakeskin platform booties that I am dying to show off!
