Hello, Nicolete. I've been away from this site for a while! Regrettably, I will not be attending the GSRA convention this weekend. Let's plan to meet at another time, real soon!

Well, my Dear; it's good to hear from you again. I also will be going to a seminar this weekend. It's an all-day event in Valencia, near Six Flags Magic Mountain. It's called the DRA, (Deposition Reporters Association). It is indeed relaxing, where you can converse among one's colleagues. I went last year also. I have a mentee who I took on 1 month after last year's seminar and she was the recipient of our scholarship. she is not a court reporter having passed the State exam in flying colors. (oh, yeah, I told you that last time. I also have another mentee who was ahead of this one and she should have passed too, but she can't stop helping out her family whenever they need it. That has hindered her. With you, I know it's different; children are precious; but older folks? Something's gotta give and right now, it's her. Again congrats on your new baby. You and Javari are specially blessed women and nothing comes before both of our precious little ones. All that will pay off in the end. You'll see. I know of another girl who has been in the CR program 23 years and didn't pass her last two state exams. I was in there 13 years and took four tries. I know now how to pass and will advise others. I know what I was doing wrong. It won't happen to others, if I can help it and if they listen. Your time will come, My Dear; YOUR TIME WILL COME. Take care and I'm here if you need me. Let's enjoy this weekend with our profession, okay? Take care and Peace.

Wow! I've just reviewed the thread and see it's been about 10 months. I'm still here for you if you need me. You know I specialize in advise and mentoring. so, if I can be of help, let me know. I hope all is going well with the marriage and all and didn't I hear about you having another baby or something? Congratulations, if that's true. Now, where are you in your speeds? I've just mentored a young 23-year-old for 6 months and she passed the State CSR exam in flying colors. She scored over 99.05%. She was the only one in her school that passed. She is totally awesome AND SHE LISTENS. Take care and don't be a stranger, okay? Peace out, My Dear & God Bless.

OMG!! I thought I was busy with 3 kids ages 3, 7, & 10...but SIX!! you do have your hands full! I live in California so I can't just drive up for dinner, but it sounds great though. IThat's a great idea. I'll be in Virginia next month and will make my way to WA and if I still had time I was still deciding if I wanted to go to the ATL and visit friends before I come back.
What on-line school is it? I go to a great school with live dictation everyday and tests everyday too! You'd think I'd be done by now with tests everyday, but sometimes I'm not sure if that's a great idea. I know from some schools that have tests maybe twice a week and they have the mindset of "I NEED to get this test," but when you have tests everyday you tend to get the mindset of "Oh, well, I'll try to get it tomorrow." That's bad but that's what happens.
That's great though that you're doing your thing, kids and school, you are truly admirable. I shouldn't complain anymore! You do your thing, girl!
