The stress!!

I had my final exam today! I was not the least bit nervous. I was actually kind of excited. I just wanted to get it over with and find out my final score. Then.....the professor handed us our test! The STRESS was overwhelming. My heart was almost beating out of my chest. After about ten minutes and still not having an answer figured out, I was ready to quit and walk out. I was so disappointed that I had no idea what I was doing on the test. I was mad at the teacher for not preparing us better. I kept looking around the room and the other students seemed to be doing their tests just fine. What was my problem? Praise the Lord for His still small voice. I had this thought....READ the entire test. I started from the top and I noticed the problem right away!! My test was labeled Final Exam for Trig and Pre Calc.! I burst out laughing and said, "No wonder I have no idea what I am doing...I have the wrong test!!" The other students all breathed a sigh of relief too. They had no idea what to do either. Our professor apologized and then gave us the right test this time. That was how we started our final exam. I was a huge ball of nerves by then and didn't trust myself in coming up with the right answers. After much prayer and some very big breaths, I settled down and got to my test. I was the last one there, because I checked it over with a fine tooth comb. I am so excited for all my hard work....I got a 100% on the REAL final exam!!

Good for you! That score shows how diligently you've worked and I'm so happy for you! I would have been stressed too, if I didn't recognize any problems on the test! Glad there was a simple solution!
