I have been waiting waiting waiting..then waiting some more to get confirmation from the KSBSRB, the President, Congress, God, Buddah, and other various important figures since MAY 15 saying that I am approved to take the NCMHCE. (Test I have to take for my clinical licesnse.) FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY today I got the last of the confirmations needed and was given access to the site where I sign up for my test date. I will be taking the exam on July 6 at 9AM. That is just about 9 days away.
(Excuse me, but I need to recover from my fainting spell/panic attack)
Wanna know what is 10 days away???
Our NY vacation.
Ayup. I am taking the test the day before we leave for vacation. There are reasons why I chose to do this.
I can't seem to recall any of them now however.....
I have been preparing for the exam since the first of the month, for once having a positive outlook that things would go my way. However I have backed off the studying over the past week because I had begun to despair that I was going to hear back from the NBCC (national board for certified counselors) in time to register for the July exam.
I think it is safe to say that by the time next weekend comes around I will be a "Hot Mess" as the kids are saying these days.
I think preparing for a major test, getting ready for my first vacation away from my children, dealing with all that is involved in getting work stuff settled so that I can be gone for a week, equals the perfect recipe for the "hot mess."
I see a crying, anxiety ridden meltdown in my near future.
Now where did I put that positive outlook? I know I left it around here somewhere.....
