So I am the world's biggest procrastinator. I realize that some people feel that procrastination is wrong, but I think I work best under pressure. I put something off until the very last minute, and then I work like a dog to get it finished. It's a lot of stress, but it really seems to work for me.
So last week I realized I only had until the 15th of Feb to apply for the Radiography program at SCC. It's a Health Science program, that once finished, will enable me to be an xray technician. I guess in a wierd kind of way, I will be doing photography, which I love.
I stop by SCC (Southwestern Community College) to put my application in and I realize there is a whole bunch of crap you have to complete before the deadline! I have to get 24 hours of observation at radiology departments in various hospitals. I also have to get a hold of all of my transcripts, and take the HOAE (Health Occupation Apptitude Exam).
Well so far I have completed 18 hours and on Wed I head to Haywood Regional for my last 8 hours. On Wednesday I crammed like a dog. Thursday morning I took my test, and hoped for the best. I have some of my transcripts, and an appointment to get another one this week. So I think that I am on track!
So I have been stressing over the HOAE. I have been hearing horror stories from other people. It's a 2 1/2 hour test that encompasses: spelling, arithmetic, reading comprehension, life science, and an aptitude to the career. So everyone that I have talked to has been telling me that they made scores of 4's or 2's. I got my test score on Saturday, and I scored a whopping 14 out of 15!!!!!!!! Yeah, I'm bragging, lol! I am soooo happy about this!
Now as long as I can ace my interview (if I get one, which I should) I think I should be able to get in this program!
So that has pretty much consumed my first two weeks of Feb, I am hoping that I will get back on the scrapping wagon soon!
