    I have a test today

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Wreybies, Sep 8, 2009.

    I have a test today. I thought it was tomorrow, but it is today. :eek:

    This test is for work. Someone will call me and I will be with them for two
    hours and we will do pretend calls and the like.

    I am nervous. I get nervous for tests.

    I'm the kind of person that knows absolutely every fact imaginable during
    class, but come test time I am just two big armpit sweat stains.

    It's not that I do poorly on tests. I just get really nervous.

    Notice how I am rambling?? Yeah. Nervous.

    2 hours long, from 5 to 7 Eastern time.

    I need some forum love today. Yes? Pleeesh?? :redface:

    Hey, if this is a test I assume it's going to be just like an ordinary phone call, just assessed. So, be your normal awesomely epic self and ace that mofo. :)

    You're so going to do awesomely, Wrey.

    Those nerves are just the way your mind/body prepares to do epically. :)

    Good luck Wreybies. Just imagine all the ways you could troll the test administrator.

    Thanks guys. Still nervous. I will attempt to remove nervousness during the test by being amazingly charming.

    If there is one thing I know how to be, it's charming. 'Specially of the tester is a lady. Then I'm golden. If the tester is a fellah', then my charm points count for zip. :(

    Even if the fellah' appears to be gay, it will be a no-go. Charm points are not transferable between gays over the phone since each of us will be worried that the other guy is cuter.

    I would suggest maybe having some sort of thing to play with like a mindless game or thing to tinker your hands with. You know how people sometimes play with their hands or hair when they're nervous, and it doesnt help at all? I think maybe having a 'good' outlet for it might help.

    GOOD LUCK and DONT STRESS. (Easier said than done, right. :p ) I'm sure you'll do fantastically. :love:

    Unfortunately I am a nail biter, so tomorrow will be more like chewing the knuckles down to the metatarsals. :redface::D

    Wear gloves. And a mouth protector.

    But remove both for the test.

    Otherwise you may have to learn to type with your nose.

    It would have been better for you to have it today. Then there would be nothing to stress about tomorrow. Not to mention a good night sleep.

    I wish you unwaivering knowledge and calm focus for tomorrow and always.

    P.s. When I stress, I take a cold (or warm if you prefer) cloth and put it over my eyes. relax and breathe.

    Good Luck!

    I, for one, am glad that the test is tomorrow, because this means that I did not miss out on giving Wrey some forum love to make him less nervous. :p

    Don't be nervous, Wrey! You kick a** at what you do, and tomorrow whoever tests you is going to learn that. :D
