Good thing I didn't bet the house

I’m sorry, were you talking to me?

I think I heard you say my name.

I cannot resist the urge to correct you. If you wish to say my name, you are hereby directed to follow that up with the initials of SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources).

Okay, glad we clarified. Don’t let it happen again.

I am preparing to indulge in some celebratory activities, commencing my version of jello-shots and table dancing. This equates to throwing study materials into the fireplace, turning on some mindless television show, and reclaiming my life.

Thanks for bearing with me (and supporting me) during this brief hiatus.

I now return to my regularly scheduled programming.

You see? Last minute panic really works. You'll never be the same again.....

Congrats!

You rock. When I read the title, I thought you were going to say you DIDN'T pass, and I was going to be both surprised and a little embarrassed for telling you I thought you'd pull it off.

Now I can be proud of you and of myself. Because not only did I want you to pass, I also wanted to be RIGHT!! :-D

Congratulations, O Thou SPHR. (I'm pronouncing that "seffer" in my head, BTW.)

Word verification: seumet. Pronounced "see-you-met" as in, "Seumet the challenge head on and did great!"

Rachel - I'll never be the same. I was just working to get out of that pattern. Darn.

Juliet - Thanks

Beth - LOL ... see, I would have bet the house that I FAILED. I can see how the title would be misleading, which is really all that much more fun.

Congrats!

Do I salute you or what, or curtsy when you come by? :)

Nicely done!

I'm proud of you, but not especially surprised. My daughter always did the same thing: "Oh, no! I'm going to fail!" And then she'd bring home A's. I decided the angst was part of the process for her.

The perfectionistic procrastinator scores another one for the home team!

Congratulations from another HR person who has been following and enjoying your blog for sometime (less for the HR stuff more for the entertaining trauma and angst!) Sadly in the UK I don't get SPHR which sounds quite cool, mine is MCIPD, but it works for me. Enjoy your celebrations - you deserve it!
