Space Cadet

So, I've realized something over the past few weeks. I have been in such a daze that I haven't been able to form a coherent sentence. In apology, I regret that my last few posts have been uneventful, self-doubting, and frantic. I read over them and I'm sure they don't make sense.

I got a great job.
Learning the material for the job = drinking from a fire hose.
Enter "feeling inebriated."
Hence, I can't spell my name when I get home.
That makes it hard to study.
Study for : ASCP exam.
ASCP = Med Boards, Nursing Boards, etc.
= Big Deal. = Career-ending if you don't pass.
Enter "insane stress and self-doubt."
Felt hopeless.
Study so hard - feel like its not making a difference - hard to study
Enter "Today."
Shaking on my way to the exam.
Couldn't eat. Ate.
Went to the bathroom...
Enter "get fingerprinted, sign away your soul."
Log onto computer. Take exam.
Heart is RACING.
I never shake while taking exams.
shaking. the. whole. time.
So nervous.
Checked entire exam.
Changed answers. Hate that.
Prayed relentlessly.
Closed my eyes...had to pee so bad.
Clicked "End Exam"
Breath caught.....


Almost peed my pants. seriously.
Jumped for joy.
Proctor laughed for 5 mins.
Finally left, called my family/work.
Screamed for joy all the way home.
Currently babysitting the best kids in the world.
Great blessing.
Reminder of what really matters in life.
They prayed for me last night and today.
Made me a "Congratulations" banner and hung it up.
All before I got there.
Family took me out for ice-cream, to celebrate.
Best kids ever. Great family. Great examples.
Great Big Blessing.

Best Day Ever.

Thanks so much, to one and all. I couldn't have done it without you, and the blessings I received today, from our Father in Heaven.

ps: I never have to study/do homework again. HAHAHA! Unless I want to.

The End.


Hey there everyone! I just want to let you all know that I passed my certifying exam! That's what I needed from everyone! This means that I am certified to work anywhere in the US! This is the culmination of my entire life, so far.

Thanks so much!
If you can spare a moment today around 2:00 mst, a quick prayer would be much appreciated.

Thanks for being good friends.

Tonight we celebrated my first REAL paycheck by promptly going out to eat, aka spend it! We went with our good friends Bethany and Tyler - and ate at Stoneground, here in SLC. The food was amazing! It was completely urban, and the best way to start the weekend! Thanks Bethany and Ty!

I wanted to post a picture of our Halloween getup - we did celebrate, just a week early!

-I stole this from Sara and Bob :) Thanks for the great celebration!
