It Is Easier Said Than Done

Updated on April 18, 2012

Being in the State for couple of months

Took lots of exam

Until today

Not one have I failed

I didn't just passed

I came out first

90 percent for me was defeat

The least I had ever got was 95

And the craziest part

I never study for an exam.....

Why ?

Read along

And often times I laugh and wonder why people fail


Not any more

Yesterday I sat for an Hesis test

For those who don't know

It is an entrance exam for License Vocational Nurses

Math and English

8 of us sat for the test

One made it

Unfortunately, it wasn't me..

It use to always be me.. Me!

I use to love to say

Don't worry everything will be fine

It is me who always say

Cheer up, it is for a reason

Not today..

What really happened ??

Don't know.. Can't say

I was too confident

I believed too much on myself

I got there and all I could do was smile and laugh

I arrived late

Late enough to take a peep on others and laugh

Not any more...

Everyone started with English

I went with Math

I felt

Capedium was invisible

Not any more

I guess I finally understand

Things don't always go as plan

Does everything happen for a reason

With doubt I believe the answer is Yes!...

Then what then is it..

I guess I need to respect people

I guess I needed to learn not to take anything for granted

I never took any of the exam serious

I guess I realize that you can never be too sure of yourself

And that most over confident ruins you..


Now lets look at the bright side

I guess it was meant to happen

8 student.. I passed.. 7 No!..

Out of 7 one got another chance

(s=SMILE). That is definitely Me!...

Why ?.. It is not being Partial...

I had 98 percent in Math

78 percent in English ...

Even the one that passed,

Barely got away with the Math and English

My Math score you don't see that too often

I didn't say it

The Administrator did..

And yes!.. I don't need to take the Math all over again..

Am taking just the English..


Wish me luck..

And honestly..

I have learnt

It is alot easier said than done....

It hurts...

My ego almost ruined me..

Next week Tuesday...

I will tell you all

How it went..

This Hub will be taken off after Tuesday next week

      Hang in there - I've learned that every single setback or defeat had a lesson for me in the long run. And it usually means God had a better plan for me. Thinking of you, dear friend!

      Everybody hits that wall at some time. You just have to go on over at some point. Let us know when you get the grades you want/need.

      Wishing you the very best. I have been right where you are. I just retired from nursing last year and these tests are no joke! In nursing school most questions are situational, needing best answer but all answers are not really wrong... common sense is the key and finding the best answer for that situation..some are very tricky.. I agree with Annie's comment...Take care and good luck!

      Yes, this happened for a reason, and you have spelt out the reason clearly, you put faith in your ego and not your ability. You are lucky to have a second chance - go back with your brains and leave your ego at home.

      An excellent look at how being over confident can bring us down - a lesson we all need at times. Thank you for sharing Capedium, and good luck!

      We'd all like to think we're invincible and it hurts when we come down to earth with a crash, but it's a good lesson to learn and a good hub, too. Application is much better than trusting to luck.

      Capedium, there surely is a reason for all that happens though we may not understand it then. Maybe, overconfidence was your undoing. but now that you have understood not to take everything for granted, I can assure you all's gonna be well. I wish you the best for your English test.

      Interesting write.

      Wow...lucky you! good thing you failed that test - or look how much you would have missed out on learning about life! Everything does happen for a reason! Good for you! Very impressive..

      capedium, There is a reason why English was the problem, you have not been in the USA that long, it takes time to learn English which is difficult for anyone, but look what you scored in math, 98!!!!!!! You will make it with flying colors, ( cliche ) Take care my friend. You will go far in the medical field, I'm never wrong..Cheers..

      That is just teaching you to study harder. I believe if you keep trying you well pass that test, if they allow you to retake it. I wish you good luck in the future.

      Your confidence bit in the rear so do respect, it because it will do again if you let it.

      Voted up, useful and interesting, Joyce.

      My friend,

      I agree with Katrine that everything happens for reason.

      I think when we fail it is God's way of letting us know not to take everything for granted. It's his way to

      keep us grounded. It teaches us that we are only human and humans are not perfect.

      I know you will do well on your English test the second time around. Keep your eye on the prize. :)

      Voted up and away!

      'Does everything happen for a reason' you ask. I believe so. We are all meant for something different in our life. Been there, 'failed', it hurt, but moved a new direction, because later on you will reflect on it too and realize that it was meant to be like that because you were perhaps suited more for something else. I wish you luck with whatever you do..and never loose the image of where you want to be, you will be led the right way. Hold on to your beliefs and faith :-)
