Match’s Practical Exam

Alex: [To Meredith, about telling Izzie he failed his Medical Board Exam] If I tell Izzie, she’ll be nice about it, all supportive and optimistic—she might as well rip my nads off and turn them into earrings. –Grey’s Anatomy

Today marks the day for two big events for me and Match. First, Match has his practical exam today for fire academy. This is a make or break test, meaning if he fails even one part of it, he will fail the entire academy. It’s got us both pretty nervous, because I don’t think either of us could handle another round of academy.Poor Match was tossing and turning all night about it. I’m don’t think he got more than 5 hours of sleep. Second, tonight is my company’s Christmas party. We are heading to San Francisco tonight for dinner followed by drinks and karaoke with my coworkers. I have never brought a boyfriend to an office party before, so I’m really looking forward to the party. The only thing that scares me is if things don’t go well with Match’s exam. But I know that’s not going to happen. He’s worked so hard for this, and I know he’s going to do even better than he hopes.

As for me, I’ve been trying to think positive thoughts about the exam. I won’t let myself think about the what ifs if Match were to fail. I know he would be completely devastated. So my plan to distract myself is to work out- I definitely need it! Because with all this weight gain, Hydroxycut hardcore is starting to look like a really good idea. 😉 I can’t wait for tonight’s party, but more importantly I want Match to get home so I can find out how he did. Think positive thoughts!
