I Think I Can…I Think I Can…

In the midst of all the half-marathons, marathons, and other fun runs going on across the country, I’m happy to announce I’m almost done with my own form of masochism: the national boards. I submitted the portfolio section the other day. While I thought I’d feel a great relief, I mostly felt nauseous. It’s not over yet, though. I’ve been studying for the written exam every day for the past couple weeks.

Unfortunately, I don’t get any real physical benefit from my hours of work. But, there’s something satisfying in its completion. Just like runners tend to bond over running and finishing the same race, I feel like I’ve entered some kind of secret society just by (almost) finishing. I won’t find out the results until sometime in late November or early December. By then, I hope the memories of the overwhelming process will leave me.

On Saturday, I take the three-hour long test. When it’s over, I’m sure I’ll cry from sheer joy, but mostly exhaustion.

What big project have you finished lately?

    You can do it, you can do it, YOU can DO it! Woo hoo for Dana the Brave, Dana the Immensely Intelligent, and Dana the Gonna-Be-Nationally-Board-ed.

    Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed by several small projects. I know I should pick one and focus but [whine] it’s hard.
