I slept in until around 8:00 am. I was woken up by a husband that cooked me breakfast. This is not a usual task. Around here for breakfast, it’s fend for yourself. Today was a little different he told me, “You need brain food”. Who am I to argue with someone else cooking me breakfast.
I piddled around a little on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but couldn’t get into a rhythm to start, let alone, finish any quests. I decided to take a shower. I lingered…let the hot water calm me down…
I decided that I needed to eat some lunch before I headed out too..so I send Jerry to European Street to get me my usual Princess Anna on gluten free bread. It seemed like it took him forever but then again, the time for me leaving was approaching.
Noon, ok…time to head out the door. Darn, still need to get gas. Why is it that the gas station is always slammed packed when I really need gas? Hopped on the highway and kept looking at the time. I had to get to University of North Florida by 12:45 pm.
12:40 pm, pulled into my parking spot. Checked in on Swarm app. Headed up to the computer lab. Checked in. Dry mouth!! Ugh, went downstairs to get a bottled water. Headed to the bathroom one last time before the exam.
My heartbeat was racing, I even told a few people that I was more nervous about this than the performance tests. Everyone gave each other supportive words and the test started. “You have four hours to complete this exam.”
An hour into the test i can feel the fatigue of sitting and staring at the computer screen settling in. I sip some water. Rub my eyes and continue on. Thirty minutes later I get to the end of the test but have listed all the questions I want to go back and review. Part of me says “Screw it..just hit submit”. Thankfully the responsible Jeanne woke up and scrolled to the beginning of the test and reviewed the questions I wanted to review.
I pressed submit. The screen seemed to take forever to refresh.
Congratulations you have passed blah blah blah…. I blinked a few times, raised my had for the proctor to come exit me out. We exchanged happy smiles and I gathered my things and headed to the bathroom where I broke into tears. OMG! I passed.
Another milestone in my journey is passed. I am feeling accomplished today. But I won’t rest on my laurels. I will continue to become the best interpreter I can be.
OMG, I passed. Whew…
