“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

The Parable of the CBEST

OK, I don't know if it's really a parable, per se -- a symbol, a microcosm maybe -- shoot, that's one of the things I hate about CFS, not being able to find the right word! Nuts!

So, as an update, I received my CBEST results yesterday. The CBEST has three parts, reading, math, and writing. Each section is worth up to 80 points, with a passing score of 41 per section. Overall, I had no problem passing. I took the test sections in the following order: reading, math, then writing. My scores were as follows: 76 in reading, 69 in math, and 53 in writing. Now you can see CFS at work! I started off strong and slowly faded as the testing wore on. I had two writing prompts; my writing was getting pretty inane by the second one! I was happy to just get the thing finished. So, the moral of the story? Even though your performance wanes, you can still get it done and be successful! (That does make it a parable, then, doesn't it? Or is that a fable?)
