My Week

My week was filled with words like..
contingent.. beneficiary... medicare.. boring boring boring.

For the past 4 days I sat through 40 hours of insurance babble babble. In WA in order to get your Life & Disability Insurance license they require you to take this class. In Mass you just have to pass the test.. damn it why didn't I get licensed in Mass while I was living there!

Anyway.. The class was long and painfully boring BUT I can't say it was entirely useless!

Because on Sat morning at 8:00 AM after an hour and a half drive to the test center and sweating through 2  and a half hours of test taking.. I PASSED :)

I am now licensed to sell insurance.. any takers?!

Funny though..looking back I NEVER thought I would be in this profession. I majored in Sociology in college but I knew by senior year that wasn't for me, glad it took me 4 years to realize that!

So here I am, very darn proud of myself, not for just passing but for actually taking the initiative to get licensed, since I've been talking about it for about 2 years! My current position doesn't require that I have the license but who knows where it will lead me now that I have it. I'm looking forward to learning more about the WICKED interesting insurance industry (sarcasm..sorta).

Can we take a moment and laugh at horrible picture that was taken of me moments before I began the test... you can just see the excitement in my face!!

Holy murderer!

:) So sad this weekEND is over but SO glad my hell of a week is dunzo!


  1. Woo Hoo!!! Congratulations! You should be proud of glad it all happened for you! Enjoy every moment because you deserve it! :)

  3. first I was confused thinking you had to take a class in order to get life insurance...I was like "whhaat??!!"
