We Survived!

Our oral exam was today and we survived.
It was nothing like what we expected. This was a little unsettling. I had planned and practiced and studied and knew how to answer certain questions and say certain things and I sounded really smart. Then I got in the room and the teacher giving the exam threw all kinds of new and unplanned questions at me. Inside I was screaming, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING LADY? THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS TOLD WOULD HAPPEN. YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE ORDER OF THINGS". But on the outside I was speaking as well as I could, answering her crazy, unexpected questions and trying to stay composed. When it was over I practically floated out of that room feeling as if a huge weight had lifted off of me. I saw Brent come out of the room too and he had such a look of relief on his face as well.
We, apparently, don't get to know our scores but Sarah said she talked to the teacher giving our exam and said we all did really well and got very high scores. I hope she was telling the truth and not just trying to make us feel good.
Now we begin preparing for the written test in two weeks. Oh joy.

Glad you survived!! Give us a post in Hebrew next time!

...oh my...yes, I really did type that seriously. Not until my fingers of fury got ready to hit POST did I realize what I said. I'm dumb. (I meant...after you get a Hebrew keyboard and blogger posts it as such.) :)
