JOY, together with thousands of Midwifery students will be taking the Licensure Examination for Midwives this weekend. I know exactly what they're feeling right now. I remember taking the same exam seven months ago. Flashback begins...
Barely three months before the examination when we started our review classes at AQ University together with the AQ Midwifery students. Honestly speaking, I never took the review classes seriously. I remember skipping classes just to watch a movie or to have jam sessions with my friends. I attended classes just for the sake of the attendance and went to the apartment after, not to study but to have gimmicks.
But, I realized (it struck me like a lightning!) that I had enough. I mean, my parents are working very hard just to send me to school. And the best thing I can do for now is to pass the exam. At least in that way, I can repay their hard works and sacrifices.
One week before the exam when I decided to leave the apartment (whom I shared with my friends) and went home to study. I finally took the review by heart. I only had three to four hours of sleep everyday but in exchange, I successfully fed my mind with the essentials I need.
Finally, the "JUDGEMENT DAY" came. I can say that I was fully prepared when I took the examination that could dictate my future. I told myself that whether I pass the test or not, I know that I did my best.
At last, after one full week of waiting, I stood victorious. I PASSED the test.
Go JOY! Nail the exam. I know you can do it. There is no doubt in me that you'll make it. No one deserves this more than you do. Just pray and stay focus.
PS. Cammille and I are so excited for your treat. 2012 the movie will be great. *laughs*
I also wish "good luck" some of my batch mates who will take the exam: JANE. Jheb. Obed. Shiela 1. Shiela 2. LYN. Junessa. Moya. Sarah. Nikko. Davy. Henson. Make our school proud!
