Today I take my Final Mock Exam. It will be the last thing I do in order to prepare for the licensing exam on Monday.
I’ve already taken two 2-hour mock exams and one 4-hour mock exam. For some reason that I am not 100% sure of, the “Final Mock” is labeled in the study materials as distinct from the other mock exams.
I’ve planned my day today to parallel what I expect to happen on the day of the real exam as closely as possible. I waited to eat breakfast until 9am, and I had three eggs and three sausages (instead of my normal two) with the hope to stay better sustained for the duration of the 4-hour test. I also have a special nutrition bar and water that I will have when I’ve reached the halfway point on the test.
It is currently about 9:40am. Right now, on the real day, I would be driving to the test center. While the test starts at 10:30am, they’ve asked me to arrive at 10am. According to my GPS, it’s about a 20-minute drive. After I post this I am going to brush my teeth, get dressed, and throw my hair in a ponytail.
Unfortunately, unlike the day of the real exam, today I am going to have to meet with FOUR clients after taking the test. I’m going to be utterly exhausted tonight. Also unfortunately, today was my early wake-up day with my daughter. I had to get up at 6:45am and we had a crying episode last night that resulted in me pulling my daughter into bed with me, causing me to lose 30-45 minutes of sleep. So I’m already feeling a little tired. The real exam is going to fall on a sleep-in day and my hope is that I’ll get a little help from my friend, adrenaline, as well. Hopefully taking the Final Mock Exam under these circumstances just helps better prepare me for potential unforeseen circumstances on the real day.
The last thing I’ll mention this morning is that I just doled out $120 for a Perift. It’s a Kegel exerciser with an app for your phone. To use it, you insert a little device into your vagina and then a sensor in the device wirelessly connects to your phone and lets you know if you’re doing a good job of flexing the correct muscles for the correct amount of time. I’m pretty excited about it. It says it ships in 4-7 business days, so if all goes well I should have about 9 weeks to get my vaginal floor whipped up into shape for my upcoming delivery of Morgan. I hope it helps my vag muscles not get torn to shreds again. I’m currently accepting all vagina-strength vibes!
Until next time <3
