I don’t know how today went for you. If today went AWESOME and you feel GREAT, KEEP IT UP!!!!!!! I’m doing backflips for you!!!!!!!!
If you feel that today was not your strongest at-bat ever, if you feel like that exam beat you up, killed you, resuscitated you, and killed you again, I still know you. YOU ARE STILL AWESOME!!!!!! YOU ARE STILL THE SAME AMAZING, BRIGHT, TAKE-NO-PRISONERS LIFESAVER THAT YOU WERE BEFORE TODAY!!!!!!!!! Today changed NONE of that. The thing you have to do (and I can say this now that I am on the flip side of the exam!) is not let this get to you. Do not let today get inside your head. So do whatever patching up you have to do (WITHOUT THE ALCOHOL…), call me, call Oprah, whoever. Tomorrow, you stare down The Lion. The MBE. In order to do that, you must KNOW, beyond ANY doubt, that you are bright, you have done three years of VERY HARD Lifesavers School, harder than this silly multiple choice test, and come out better for it. The Lion you face is in fact a paper lion, in both senses of the word. I KNOW, beyond ANY doubt that you are bright, that you have done three years of VERY HARD Lifesavers School, harder than this silly multiple choice test, and you have come out better, stronger, faster, and prettier because of it. I know you. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!
For those of you that are lucky enough to take two-day Lifesavers exams, tomorrow will be it. Wordie here had to take a three-day exam. And she was honked off at the “I’m free” status updates of her two-day friends. So if you have nothing to do after tomorrow, great. Wordie will post another post of encouragement tomorrow, and will follow that with her “What now?” advice. (“Advice”)
For all of you, tonight, NO MBE work. Watch reality television, cry (if you need to), call me (if you need to), eat a good dinner (if it was cooked in a deep fryer, in whole or in part, it is not a good dinner) and GO TO BED.
Love and Belief,
