Another long day at work, followed by an afternoon of puppy-sitting (which isn’t a job but it is work), dinner, and real estate coursework until bedtime. I am really enjoying being busy these days, as I inch closer and closer towards being a licensed agent in California. At the end of all this, I will have not only completed my Bachelor’s degree this year, which happens to be my 35th on the planet earth, but I will also be able to add real estate licensee to my list of professional accomplishments. And please don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to brag or come across as being cocky – I am just happy and proud of myself for pursuing my dreams, sticking to it all day after night after day, and accomplishing the things I set out to do. Like everyone in this world, I have failed many times on countless other endeavors so this time, in addition to many more, I intend to get it right.
With one class completed and my second class 37% finished (that’s an approximation folks), I am finding peace and excitement with the process. Nervous to take the state test in a couple months and there is literally not much I can do to quell my anxiety about it. With a high failure rate, the test is mildly intimidating; if real estate was my sole pursuit right now I would be much more scared of the impending test date but since I am still employed with steady income, I can rest a little bit easier. My whole life isn’t hinging on this new chapter so it is all elective, which makes it much more calming and fun. I like to push myself so even if I have to take the final California Real Estate Licensee test a few times, I will just chalk it up to solid practice and a good story to tell later on down the road in my upcoming lucrative real estate career.
But for now, I am going to log out of my online course website, enjoy a final cup of tea, and drift off to bed. Need to grab a couple hours of sleep before I start my Thursday morning at 3am in downtown LA – even the rats don’t get up that early…goodnight!
