Slowed down…

Yesterday was what I would call a long day.

I got up yesterday morning and, to keep my mind of things, did some more learning in Lightroom.

Around 1030 I headed out the door to meet my editor for lunch in Stettler, as well as complete another couple of errands before my exam.

By 1300hrs I was in my exam. I don’t think I have dropped the f-bomb that many times in such a short period of time. The exam was 22 questions long, twenty of which were short answer, one of which was an essay, and finally one was a summary. I don’t have a good feeling about the exam. I finished with only eight minutes to spare, and I felt rushed for time on the editing of the major questions. We’ll see how it goes, I’m hopeful, but pessimistic.

Part of the reason I am pessimistic, though, is my recall has been sluggish. I’m finding that I’m not thinking as fast as I was, and I’m pretty sure that is due to the medication tweak Dr. O. made. It’s very much a damned if I don’t, damned if I do situation, because without the med slowing me down, I don’t know that I would have been in any shape to write the exam in the first place. The joys of living with a brain that likes to spazz out periodically.

Anyhow, after the exam, I headed back to town for an awards night hosted at the hospital which I was invited too as both a hospital board member and a reporter. At the conclusion of that I stopped home for a few minutes before heading to theatre practice, for our last rehearsal before the dress rehearsal on Saturday.

I felt very much like the weak link in the practise last night. I was slow on my cues for the AV effects, and I hit a wrong button, resulting in ALL the sound effects in the cue playing from the beginning. It made for a good laugh, but still. Saturday needs to be better.

I’m not liking this feeling of being slowed down. Then again, I didn’t like the feeling of damn near going off the rails either. It’s a double edged sword. Either way, the exam is done, now it’s a waiting game to get my exam results back. In the meantime, it’s time to focus on work, theatre, and photography for the time being.
