Actuary, Shmactuary

My sister is an actuary.

Yeah. I didn't know what it was either until she became one.

Something to do with insurance, math, statistics. You know, all those riveting subjects.

She has to take 9...yep...9 exams before she is technically an actuary. Her exam 4 results come out today at some "unknown" time. So my poor sister is stuck at home in Chicago, checking the Internet every 2 minutes to see if the results are posted.

If you'd like to know exactly how she is feeling, here is our conversation this morning:


Need a bloggy idea? I noticed you hadn't written anything yet…how about me and how my nerves are about to make me vomit!

I'm at home by the way. We were allowed to work from home because of the snow. YAY! But still no results yet.

I was wondering what was going on with that!! I'll write you a good luck post right now!!

Yay! I'll call you as soon as I find out... either calling you from running around celebrating or crying in a hole.

Clearly, the girl needs some of those great bloggy "good luck" vibes y'all are great about sharing! So give it up ladies!

Wishing you the very best of luck sister!! AND, just in case passing your test isn't cool enough, you get to see my face in 7 days! Here's to a big weekend of celebrating!

Yay!! Glad she passed. The description of what an actuary does makes me want to crawl in a hole let alone taking 9 tests over it.

YAY!!!!! Please pass along my congrats to your sister! I knew someone in college who was going to become in actuary. It sounded pretty awful to me. :)
