I just graduated from an actuarial science major in the summer, and started working as an actuarial analyst in an insurance company. If you're not familiar with the actuarial field, it's just basically A WHOLE LOT of math, more specifically, statistics. And depending on which one of the two designations you choose, you either have to finish 9 or 10 exams in order to get your designation. I wrote my first exam in first year when I didn't know any better what I was getting into. I didn't even study properly, maybe that was the reason why I failed horribly. Fast forward 4 years, I've successfully passed 4 exams (in which it's counted as 3, because 2 of them are counted as half each). Today, I wrote yet another exam. Since it was a computer based exam, I was able to know a few seconds after I was done if I've passed it or not. And sad to say, I didn't. This means 2.5 months of my studying life wasted. This means I have to spend the upcoming few months studying for the same material again. This means I'm set back half a year in life. I say in life, not just career wise, is because I really have to give up so many things to write these exams. It's common for people in my field to put your life on hold before you get your designation. It's virtually impossible to have a normal social life, let alone having a family and kids, while you're studying non-stop.
So, to cheer myself up, I went to Sephora to get my free birthday gift!
It includes the Sephora eye pencil in silver green, a pearly white e/s, and a lash plumping mascara. I love my free stuff :D
My little sister got these key holders for me a few days ago. She knows I love robots. I really do! These are the cutest things ever. I named the left one RO and the right one BO. I know... very uncreative of me.
