Today was the first set of tests in my new program. Not the worst test I’ve ever taken, but still reminds one of the nerves associated with tests. It’s not that I fear not knowing, or not failing, it’s more missing things that I know because I can’t demonstrate them on the test. Thus the fear and thrill of proving what you know on a test. If you try your hardest and still don’t do well, then it is what it is. If you make excuses, well just think about what you can control.
