Advancement Test

| life | navy | medicine |

My advancement test is next week and I am terribly unprepared for it. I made a schedule to stick to that included a comprehensive review of all of my material but as the months, weeks, and days went along I used every excuse in the book to get out of studying. This is a very important test because it determines my rank. No one wants to be at the bottom of the totem pole forever but I feel like this time around my card is not up. I am going to remain here and hopefully next time I will find a little bit more motivation in order to study.

It is just a little bit discouraging because I want to be a doctor one day. I know that is going to require a lot of school and studying and learning and sticking to schedules. If I am unable to do it now what in the world makes me believe that I will be able to do it in the future.

This last advancement cycle has definitely been a wake up call for me. It is time to buckle down and just really get into this stuff. Life is too short and every mistake that you make will hurt you in the future. It is ironic because I am supposed to be studying right now and instead what am I doing?

Writing this blog, my point exactly.
