Manic Monday!

Of course, don't I wish I was writing Mellow Monday?

Nope, it's manic today because I have a test tonight, and I am a total freak about getting A's.

Have we met? I'm the freak who freaks out about my 4.0 GPA, entrance into nursing school (which is fiercely competitive), keeping my scholarship, and because of all these things I treat each and every test as though my entire life was depending on an A... which, is of course, because it is.

No pressure.

AND really, I should feel pretty good about this test. I studied on Tuesday, spoke with my prof on Weds about my questions, studied on Friday, Saturday... and yesterday I was feeling pretty good so to check my readiness I completed the review section in the back of the chapter. Which freaked me out. I missed about 8 of the 33 questions. Uhg. I stayed up an extra 30 minutes last night trying to study more and woke up feeling it.

So today in an effort to relax a little I took a 2 mile walk, which I rocked out in less than 33 minutes. And it's true, for a few minutes I was relaxed. Until I decided to study for 15 minutes while the girls were napping. I've been on a 15 minute study jam session for 64 minutes. I tore myself away to write this post.

Despite all this "jamming", I feel really unprepared for this test. ~sigh~

stats for the week:

Distance: 2 miles
Pace: Fast Walk
... and regardless of how today's test pans out, at least I can look forward to a 3M run tomorrow!

I know exactly how you feel, exactly! Because I've been there, and done that :) Knowing how you feel, let me just say that I am convinced you are going to kick this test's butt! You are more prepared than the teacher at this point ;)
So relax, because the more relaxed and calm you are, the better you will do.
