So if you aren’t following me on social media, I have some exciting news to share….
I passed the RD exam! On top of that, this is my 100th post! Coincidence?
It’s surreal to think that this one goal that I’ve been working towards for the past 5 years has been accomplished. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was sitting in Jasen’s dorm room elbow deep in chemistry and hating every second of it. I’m so happy that mess is behind me.
The past few weeks I’ve been committed to studying. Not the most fun, but definitely necessary. There was a minor mental breakdown approximately every 3 days during this period, with the last one on Tuesday. Yeah, that “thing” that came up preventing me from posting on Wednesday, that was the exam. I just felt like I still had a ton to study and I couldn’t bring myself to share with the world that I was taking my exam on Thursday. What if I didn’t pass?! “I Failed the RD Exam” was not a post I wanted to write.
Anyways, I woke up on Thursday and ate a nice, filling breakfast. Had to get some veggies in there on RD exam day!
Then my mom and I headed to the testing center. I definitely needed her to chauffeur. With my nerves, there was no way I could drive myself safely. Plus, it’s always nice to have a buddy for support. It was about 1 hour and 20 minutes away, so we left 3 and half hours before exam time just in case. We didn’t have any problems finding the testing center or any traffic, so I spent the waiting time doing some last minute studying. Once it was time to head in, we said a prayer and then I was on my way to face the exam.
Everything went smoothly from there, until it was time to get my score. The computer malfunctioned. Can you say scary? After some worrying that I may have to take this whole thing over, they were able to fix the problem and I FINALLY got my results.
I’m so happy to be able to call myself an RD! Now it’s on to the next chapter, which I’m super excited for. Stay tuned for updates on that. 🙂
P.S I’ve also changed my Twitter handle to reflect my new married and RD status. You can now tweet me using @SarahMoranRD. <—- Cray!
