As you may or may not know, I have my Professional in Human Resources certification exam coming up on the 31st. It’s crunch time and I’m starting to get antsy, nervous, and soiled under my arms. I know that’s too much information, but I wouldn’t have been able to convey my nervousness about the test without it. Damn. I can feel my gut rumbling like I need to…just kidding.
Anyway, I’m probably gonna end up with one post a week on TRSJ between now and then. Hopefully it’ll be more. Though with the way this studying’s going, I’m not gonna get my hopes up. Standardized tests have always bullied me into sneaking out the side door, so my angst is justified — in my head at least.
I’m more optimistic about this exam because I’m passionate about the content. But I keep having flashbacks to my SAT II Math test circa dinosaurs, where I walked out after ten minutes of staring at the bubble sheet and pondering what I really wanted from life. Engineering didn’t seem so sexy anymore and my icy palms agreed. I think that was the last time I took a true standardized test.
If things go well, I’ll talk about it here. Ehh, if things don’t go well, I’ll still talk about it here. I’m sure there will be some good lessons or stories out of the frenzied studying, the test, and getting my results right after I click submit. At least I won’t have to shiver and shake like I’m at the doctor’s office waiting to confirm if what WebMD said is true.
What a coincidence, my right leg is bouncing fast enough to shake a section of my living room floor. I’m gonna take a chill pill and listen to some Jason Mraz. If by chance you’ve taken the exam before and have some pointers, you know where to find me. I’ll give you my firstborn as a token of appreciation…for 15 seconds in the presence of my bodyguards, Bovice and Orpheus.
I’ll catch you on Thursday with my next post. I think you’ll enjoy.
