Take that, BIG Test

October 22, 2012

I am so happy to see this boy (pictured above) again. It's been a looooonngg week.

Soooo happy this week is over. Yes, I have been MIA but for a good reason. I had my big social work licensing exam (LMSW) on Friday, and I pretty much shut off my phone and had no friends or husband for a whole week. The LMSW is my license for practicing therapy with patients/clients-plus, I get a pay increase at the psych hospital...whoop whoop!!  I pretended to "study" for this test for the past month, but honestly, I really wasn't studying. I would just find myself watching Gossip Girl on Netflix and skimming over my book and practice test questions. So for a whole week I was on shut-down mode. I was so stressed and anxious over this dumb test and it ended up being easier than i thought it would be. There were still tons of questions I didn't know the answer to but I PASSED. It was a 4 hour test, 170 questions, and I'm dying to know how many I got wrong. They mail me more info in about 2 weeks. I was shocked at how many questions there were about anti-depressants and benzodiazepines and anti-psychotics...lots of medication questions. I will never forget when the big letters

PASS

flashed across the screen. Felt so good.

I'm so glad it's over.

I also had a big Relief Society activity to plan. We had a relaxation and rejuvenation night. We painted nails and decorated cupcakes after hearing 3 wonderful talks about the joy and sweetness of womanhood. I remember being so stressed about being in charge of this activity during my crazy week, but after the talks I really did feel rejuvenated and relaxed.

Heavenly Father always knows best, huh?

My wonderful husband bough me Indian food the night before because he knows it is my favorite. He takes good care of me even when I don't make time for him:) Thank you, husband. Now he knows how I felt when he was gearing up for the dental school boards.

Now I don't know what to do with myself. It makes me want to go back to school!????!!!
All I see in my future is work, work, work. Gotta find bigger and better things to hurdle now.
