    Queen. relax.
    go through the stuff you have to study and find something that you really don't "get" and read it.

    As you take the test you will remember things.. and good luck.
    and if you're drinking coffee while studying, drink it while taking the test too (or drink some right before you take the test)

    *deep breath* OK. Well. Give me a moment because my head is still spinning.

    The stats: He's 25 (I'm 27). We actually started chatting online because he is moving to my town this summer or so from about 45 minutes away. We talked on the phone for at least 3 hours every night last week before we met. He runs his own business. Never married, no kids.

    We met for lunch at an Italian restaurant that has a gluten-free menu. He gave me a present when we met. Sometime during our phone calls, I mentioned I have a favorite scented lotion that Bath & Body Works was discontinuing. He actually got me a candle of that same scent!!! I was blown away.

    Oh and he's really cute, too. I have seen pictures, but don't have them saved on my hard drive. Some other time.

    During lunch, he was genuinely interested in what I can eat, and kept asking if he didn't mind if he ate gluten foods in front of me, so that was very sweet. We talked for several hours at the restaurant to the chagrin of our waiter.

    Afterward, we went walking and just kept talking. At the end of the night, we held hands, hugged and I got a quick peck to say goodnight. Our date was nearly 10 hours of just talking. It was just an amazing connection. I feel like I could tell him absolutely anything. He's a great listener.

    A caveat is he doesn't bike, but I'll fix that. He has said he would go mountain biking with me, after we both get mountain bikes. Which is *really* *really* *really* cool because my ex-fiance wouldn't do ANYthing active with me.

    We're going to go hiking next weekend. I can't wait!

    Well, my test was a bit mind-bending. I have no idea if I passed or not but am not feeling terribly optimistic. I went over to the library when I was done and talked to a couple of people and they were astounded at the depth of the test for an ENTRY LEVEL library job, they (both Masters level librarians) couldn't answer some of the questions. Oh well, if I didn't pass I'll try again in a month or so (the soonest I can re-take it).

    Hope everyone else had a less mind-bending day.

    OTG-I am so very happy for you. Communication is so very important. He sounds wonderful and more importantly you sound so happy.

    Queen-How do you think you did on the exam?

    BMO3 - Not sure at all, I was completely guessing on 25 or the 64 questions...I've never even seen Library of Congress cataloging (it's not used here) and there were 10+ questions on it alone.

    Hi, popping in for a second with sad news- didn't check to see if this was posted elsewhere. Barbaro was put down today. I cried at work when I found out.

    OTG!! Sounds great!

    They said it'd take a week or so, I guess I better try to be patient. *heavysigh*

    Edit - Thanks for being so supportive.

    Nanci - so sorry to hear about Barbaro....

    Queen - hope you did better than you think - that's what usually happens.

    OTG - a wonderful first date story. Maybe you're going to be "lise2" Keep us posted with the future dates.
