Oh Happy Day!!

I have wonderful news to share - I found out this morning that I passed my level II CFA exam!! 42% of those who took it passed - so I feel really good about being in that group! :)

The wait for the results was excruciating and, in my opinion, cruel. Others got their results emails over an hour before mine. I get that they are sending out 85,000 emails, but seriously. Take part of the $600 exam fee and buy a better server.

But all that matters is that I passed! We are celebrating with steak sandwiches (sans the bread for me) and I am relishing the feeling of sweet relief. You all know how hard I worked for this; it's such a relief to know that hard work payed off!

Thanks to all of you for the support, encouragement, and 'you can do it' comments.
