Studying, reading, preparing, and understanding.
These are the things we do on an everyday basis
even though we may not know that we are doing these things.
How easy it seems when there is no stress involved.
She has an exam today. She has studied and prepared for a very long time for this.
But is she really ready?
Has she studied and prepared enough to do well?
She is nervous; her hands sweat.
What if she doesn't do well?
What if it's worse and she fails the exam?
What will happen?
What will her family and friends think?
She doesn't want to be known as a failure in life.
She strives to do well in everything she does.
But is it really enough?
Her family says that they have faith in her abilities and wish her well.
But she is still shaking and nervous with
anticipation of the questions that will be on that exam.
The only thing she thinks is that if she doesn't do well she will not be able
to move on to the next exams.
Oh the horror! Such distressing thoughts cannot be a good thing!
Well, it is time for the exam now.
It is time to go into the exam room and take it.
She has butterflies in her stomach, and is sweating profusely now.
Her family wishes her all the best as they wait outside in the waiting room.
She slowly walks in and sits down.
The exam is long and tough.
She has to think about things for a little extra time than she normally would.
She writes the answers in carefully and then rechecks her answers three times.
As the end of the exam draws near, she frantically writes down her last few answers,
gives it a quick check and puts the paper down as the time runs out.
The exam is finally over.
She slowly gets up and walks out of the exam.
A burden seems to have been lifted.
As she goes out into the waiting room, her family comes to greet her.
They ask her how the exam was.
All she can say is,
"It's over. Now I just have to hope and pray that I have passed and done well."
