Create a Continuing Education Binder

This was a seriously long time coming. I've taken numerous classes over the past four years, and at each class I took a plethora of notes, and they have been scattered throughout our house in different notebooks and binders and on many tabletops. It was driving me crazy how messy it was, and the answer was simple. Yet I kept procrastinating on actually organizing everything until finally it just became time to get it done.

Truth be told, I was planning on doing it much earlier so I would have an amazing reference book for taking my Postgraduate Certification Exam (mentioned and completed a couple of posts ago), but I didn't do it in time. Well, that's all right because it's done now, and from now on when I take a class, all I have to do is file my notes. Whew.

Go to a Salt Cave

Today I finally went to a salt cave. I don't really know why I was putting it off; I guess I thought it would take more time or something. It was about a 25-minute drive, so if you multiply by two and add in the time spent in the cave... But I have to say that it was worth the time, and it really didn't feel like it was as long as I thought.

I should actually rephrase that because the time I spent in the cave itself felt much longer than the 45 minutes it was. The ambient music and lighting coupled with the cozy blankets and reclining chairs made time feel like it moved in slow motion. I took a nice snooze and woke up feeling refreshed and clean. I'm definitely going back again, and when I do, I'm spending more time walking on the salt. It felt like a massage on my feet!

Earn the Postgraduate Certificate of Achievement at The International Dermal Institute

This has been a long time coming. I kept telling myself I should get all of my notes organized into a binder before taking the exam, but the truth is, I didn't need to do that. Luckily, I didn't wait until I was done procrastinating on it -- although I still have to make that binder as it is a goal on this list...

I got the phone call today, and couldn't believe it when Jessica from IDI told me I passed with a 98%! I can't be sure because she wasn't specific, but I get the feeling that isn't par for the course. Feeling pretty awesome right about now. I get my certificate in April.
