Congratulations to My Man

A big hefty congratulations is in order for my man.

A few weeks ago, Marcus took the EPPP (Exam for Professional Practice in Psychology). This test dictates whether Marcus can be licensed or not. This test dictates if he can get a job or not. This test is a BIG test. It has a pretty high fail rate I've read and it's just a beast. A BEAST I tell you. So, when Marcus studied for 6 hours a day, it was some serious studyin' he was doing. He was especially worried after hearing about a colleague who didn't pass it.

We've been waiting for the results. And waiting.

Yesterday, Marcus got his results. He needed a 500 to pass. And this boy didn't just pass, but he got a 728. (He missed roughly 15 questions.) This is after not passing several of the practice tests. Now, he wouldn't want me to announce his score, but I'm pretty proud of him and how his hard work paid off. The score doesn't really matter to anyone. No one will ever care what he got. It won't matter for his future employment. All people will need to know is that the state board clears him as eligible to work as a psychologist. But still, I think he's one pretty impressive guy. And he's mine. That makes me happy.

Yay Marcus! He has a pretty good example. I remember the seemingly 12 hour days Lee would put into studying for his tests. One would want to go into the family room to watch TV but there was Lee, murmuring to himself which was kind of scary, so one left. I think he literally memorized whole passages of the law books. Good genes.
