My hands ghosted over the keys on my laptop as my eyes eagerly searched away. The tension was building up in my stomach, spine, heart, actually… my whole body. My phone was off at the side, buzzing away with a flurry of messages, the type I dreaded to open.
The whole web in our part of the world was abuzz with excitement. My heart was ready to burst out of my chest along with all of my other internal organs. It was the day I wished came sooner.
“I found the site!” I told my mother, who was too anxiously waiting.
My eyes dashed through the many different names, until I came across…
“My name! It’s here!”
My mother shouted in joy and enveloped me in her arms, giving me a sweet kiss. The nervous beating in my chest and anxious grumble in my stomach ceased. A smile plastered onto my face (and it still is) as I read it over and over.
February 16, 2012 is one of the happiest days of my life…
I am now a REGISTERED NURSE.
My four years of hard work have finally paid off.
One dream achieved.
Now, I’m gonna make the others come true.
