They are writhing and dying and burning.
They are not here to be pretty.
I am trying to learn from them.” – Caitlyn Siehl, “Sky Poem”
I’ve been meaning to write this for a few days now, because I simply had to tell tumblr that I passed my exam!! Part 3 of the State Board of Pharmacy Licensing exams, my compounding exam was by far the hardest and most miserable test I’ve ever taken in my life. I spent the entire day weeping my poor eyes out after taking it, 100% positive that I completely and utterly failed. I was basically haunted every single day for the past 5 weeks at whether I made it or not - constantly asking my parents if I had any mail today, yet unsure what the answer I wanted to hear was. It’s still incredible news to me, and largely unbelievable. No matter how long I stare at this paper for, it doesn’t fully sink in that I actually passed. But the proof is right on this letter, and I couldn’t be more relieved that I don’t have to sit through another 6 hours of this bullshit for a retest. I’m really going to be a pharmacist after all, huh?
In any case, I still have a little ways to go before I’m graduated and fully licensed. But my confidence has risen back to a solid 34%, and that’s enough to get me by for now. Happy, happy days ahead. yay.
