We’ve spent this entire week waiting.
I’ve been waiting for the official test results of the Subject Area Exam I took early last week. They still won’t be available for at least another two weeks, but I’m happy to report that I passed both subtests I registered for! Once I receive the official results and the Florida Department of Education mails me their Statement of Eligibility, I can finally register for school and start my classes on my journey to become a teacher.
We were all waiting on Tuesday to see who the next president of the United States would be. I have never gotten political on this blog and I will not start now, except to say that the democratic process is a privilege we have. Many countries are unable to vote to elect their leaders, policies, presidents and dictators are forced on the people who have no voice. My grandparents left everything in Cuba to make a new life in the land of the free and home of the brave, and give not only themselves the right to use their voice but those of us who came after them. As the great nation we are, we should respect and honor the position of President of the United States deserves, even if the winning candidate is not an ideal one.
And lastly, we waited to hear back on something we were neither planning for or anticipating, but got excited about nonetheless. Early this week we made an offer on a condo in our neighborhood. We weren’t looking to move, and didn’t even think we’d qualify, but we drove by a place, saw it, and said, “Why not?”, and made an offer. We found out yesterday a different offer was accepted, but I’m happy because now we have an idea what we qualify for and how much we can afford, and can plan to make a move in the next year or two.
What have you been waiting for lately?
