Life after School

Friday, June 21, 2013

UPDATE!! So, I finally got my State Boards test dates. I've already taken my written & I passed!! YAY! So happy! It's actually quite a funny story, If you know me, you would know that I have awful test anxiety. I start shaking, sweating, my heart starts pounding out of my chest, I can't breath! It's not pretty. So I was nervous but we had moved during the weekend before so I didn't have a lot of time to stress over it because my mind was on other things! I still had been studying my books like crazy, because I was not going to FAIL! I couldn't let myself because I have to pay to take this stinkin test & I am NOT paying to fail it or to take it again.  At least that's what I was telling myself.

So the few days before I was feeling really week and sick from moving, allergies and probably just being stressed & studying was the last thing I wanted to do, but I did it. I studied all the night before & I even forced myself to get up early to study before I went to take it. (pure dedication) hah

Anyways I finally find this place, start taking the test, & literally about 12 questions in I was 100% convinced I failed. Seriously all of the questions was a bunch of crap I've NEVER even heard of!! I was so mad! Half way through the test I'm thinking of the next time I can come in, how I'm going to pay for it? Yada yada ya..
I finish it completely expecting to hear "Sorry mam your going to need to reschedule, because you failed" BUT low and behold he looks up my name and says YOU PASSED....I screamed I didn't believe him but I didn't care! haha I got my papers and ran out as fast as I could so they couldn't catch me and say "Oops wrong test score!" haha


YAY! So I still have to take my Practical which is scheduled for July 1st. We'll see how that one goes! I'm definitely not near as nervous for this one, I feel pretty confident but I know when I get there I'll probably have a panic attack haha, but all well! We took a practice State board practical at school & we had to pass to graduate & I was so nervous I broke down crying in the middle of it hahaha but hey I passed with a 98% so hopefully that will calm my nerves for the real thing.

After I take these test I can FINALLLYYYY start really interviewing at salons and start working! CANT WAIT. I miss doing hair! But I will bore you no longer. So that is my school/work update :)
