I know that usually that phrase is a very joking, ironic manner but that’s not my intention today.
Rather, I’m actually very proud of myself and I feel like I’ve come a long way from where I was even just May of last year.
I know that on this blog, I haven’t really written any really personal entries yet, and I think today is a good day for that. I took my Psychology II final yesterday and made a 100%. I’ve never been the student that makes perfects or even just A’s on exams. Granted, a lot of it was just from a lack of drive and discipline but it gives you an idea of what kind of student I was in the beginning.
I mean, going online and seeing that:
It really drives home the point that I’ve matured and come a long way from where I was even a year ago. It affirms my choice in pursuing this path down nursing. And, it motivates me to do better. When I was younger, I would have never expected myself to be ‘that’ kind of student. Not because I couldn’t, but simply just because I didn’t care.
And knowing that isn’t the case now is such a big deal for me. I’ve always been the type to call it quits and move on as soon as something gets difficult. But, with all I’ve gone through in the past 3 years, I feel like this is just a small bump on the road and I’m just on cruise control towards my goal.
It’s a very good feeling, and I just wanted to share with you guys a very personal victory for me.
I still have another week left of finals, but I feel weirdly calm going into them.
