    Keep in mind I don't actually know much about what goes on in Aus, just going by what it sounds like from RVD. NZ high school english is different.
    But that's a bad exam instead of a difficult one. I was just talking about difficult exams.

    There are several standardized tests I've taken that I thought were exquisitely written - so it's possible.


    I've also taken standardized tests that only deal with random details. Both can be easy or hard.

    Made:

    Asked my 60 year old female Sri Lankan doctor how I could improve my core strength. She proceeded to jump on the floor and demonstrate what a lower ab extension should look like.

    "Do you understand now?"

    "Yep."

    Ruined:

    Hopelessly unproductive. Oppressive backlog of uni work. Frothin' for a good Test match.

    Good stuff. Seems to be a highly sought after certification around here.

    Indeed - I think being a project manager is a gun ticket - and has endless career opportunities.

    I may end up going that route.

    I've thought about it as well, but doing it from a process development aspect. Could work well with my experience in pharma. One way or another, I need to lay out a career path for myself, and the above seems plausible.
