.....and I can't sleep. Xmas ended in tears. Nervous about tomorrow doesn't help. Doubting myself....and I don't want to feel like that. I've never had good luck in anything I set myself up to, so my little voice keeps nagging at me saying "what makes you think it will be different this time?".

I gotta find courage, somehow. I need this. I REALLY need this to work, this time.

Just do whatever you do to relax. Stay positive. You've got this. In a few months you'll be wondering what all the fuss was about.

If can't be worse for a perfectionist who beats up on herself, and she hasn't even started yet!!.

You have been so thorough on your Trucking Truth research and participation, Rebellious, I can't believe you'll do anything less than great! Calm down, and just be excited that you're taking your next, well planned, step in Life.

Be sure to post back about how over-worried you turned out to be.

Thank you everyone.....

If I got 4 hours total of sleep, I'm lucky. I kept waking up and my brain wouldn't shut up. I hope my eyes and ears will stay open today, and that my brain can take all the information in, because I didn't even get going yet and I'm so tired. :(

Usually the first day is mostly in-processing, paperwork and organizational stuff. Usually, bitty not a promise. Have a good day!

Reeeeeeelaaaaxxxxxxxx. Be like The Dude in The Big Lebowski and just be mellow. You passed the written test, the next phases are just practice and getting the feel for what you're doing. You're getting way too worked up.
