Nothing has ever scared me more, than thinking about taking my boards. Goodness, all that stress about did me in! I studied my tushy off! I just couldn't bare the thought of doing all of this hard work over the past 2 years,and it all coming down to this one test. Considering, test taking is my down-fall, I had every right to be extremely mortified.
I scheduled my test for May 10 at 10:45a.m, at the Pearson Vue Testing Center in Draper. I drove up that morning, the whole way trying to stay calm and think about anything but my test. I got there early and started a little after 10. Once I began, ya know that feeling of, "I have totally got this!?"...Ya, that wasn't the case. I panicked. I didn't feel like I was doing that great. I finished around noon, and luckily, when taking your boards, you get your score immediately! I pushed that oh so frightening "finish" button, and......................................You scored: 83! Wooooohooooo! I have never been so happy. Actually, it took me a while to shake off the shock of actually being done. I was immediately exhausted, had a headache, wanted to sleep, and in a weird fog. I had been all hyped up for so long preparing for the test, that once all the adreneline wore off, I needed to some much needed R&R!
It still seems unreal that's it over. I am so so happy to be done, and I have my hubby, Jaiya, My in-laws, and my Mom and Jer to thank for the success. I couldn't have done it without everyone's love and support, and their help with Jaiya!
