They came yesterday. I'm still in shock. I knew I didn't pass, but seeing the blue, yellow, pink, and green covers really drove it home. Even worse, when I read my essays, I was absolutely humiliated. Who wrote that garbage? Me. That's who. And I am just stunned. How did that happen? Not only am I shocked at my answers, I'm not happy with my writing. (I'm employed as an editor/staff writer at a magazine publishing company.) It was horrible. I knew I was apprehensive about flying to California and taking the exam, but from the looks of things, I totally freaked out. I'm seriously thinking about getting hypnotized. Don't laugh.
