Whew ... I did it.

Alright. I've been avoiding Greek.

I didn't want to take the Unit Exam, because I wasn't sure what it was going to look like and I was only going to have one shot at it. I have rather high expectations for myself.

I also didn't want to record myself trying read the paragraphs from the book - I didn't want to sound like an idiot.

But, I had to overcome all of that today. No more avoidance.

It took a little research to figure out how to record myself. Oh, duh ... look, there's a little app called Sound Recorder. Huh. whaddya know!

So, I started recording myself ... over and over. I finally got up the courage to listen to one of them. While it's not necessarily a smooth reading of the paragraph, it's better than I expected.

Now that I've accomplished that, I'm going to hit the quizzes one more time and then I HAVE to take this exam.

I finally took the exam. 50 questions - 50 minutes.

Ten minutes later, I was finished. Again. Whaddya know! I did ok. And when I submitted the exam, I had made only one error - and it was a stupid one. I can't believe I missed it, simply not paying attention. But, 99% is acceptable. Not what I would like, but it's acceptable.

So now I can move on to the next two chapters. I can hardly wait! And I won't be as tentative when it's time to take the next exam because now I know what to expect!
