What goes up must come down

Why is it that good news always seems to be followed by some not such good news!


Take yesterday for an example – actually wrong wording because yesterday was followed by today – and today is Friday so that is good news!


But take what happened yesterday – I PASSED my exam!  Yippee, that was the good news. The not so good news was because I managed to pass that one I had to write another one today.  This time a long questions one!  Hmmmm another exam!  At least it is over now.  I am not sure how I did on it as it needs to go to an invigilator to mark and usually takes about 6 weeks for the results to get back.


Now I just need to study for my UNISA one on the 27th and everything is done!  If I pass that one I get my degree – 8 years after starting at UNISA – 4 degree changes later!  Well let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  I still need to pass it.  So for the next 3 weeks I will be studying my butt off!!!!


And then in I guess some what related news.  The good news – a bailout, the bad news…..  Well just read this article.

I found the link on The Tao of Roo’s site.  Would you be happy if this was your money???

  1. Well done! Your academic career sounds remarkably like mine, except that I’ve chucked in the towel. I will not write another exam. I love doing research and read a lot of non-fiction, but I don’t like studying!

  2. I am also studying with UNISA and have an exam next week. Oh dear. I have been studying since 2005 and will be for many more years before I finish this degree. Good luck for your exams.

  3. ICE – Thanks
    Hanlie – Believe me, I wont be making this mistake again. I love reading up about stuff, and learning but nothing this formal! If I do it is going to be short courses.
    PO – Good Luck! I have been there and know how it feels. I started this in 2000!!!!! Also whilst out of SA.

I would love to hear from you
