First, I wrote to the Rebbe at the Ohel and asked for a bracha. Then I visited my parents' grave sites and asked them to intercede as well. The current month we are in, Elul, is known as a time during which "The King is in the field," meaning Hashem is walking among us, and can take our pleas personally. Altogether, I saw this as a good sign.
But the test itself, well, that was hard. The first few questions had me freaking out. I was shaking and tried deep breathing to calm myself. It worked. I took every question slowly, reread it several times, and came up with what I thought was the right answer. Yes, there were several I had no idea about, but guessed anyway.
I was surprised when I passed. Truly. Now, I am a RD. Registered Dietitian. Ready to work. Watch out world, here I come!
