Weather: Cloudy Plan: Akagi JHS

There is exactly 2 months left. I got my reservation letter for the Foreign Service Written Exam today. I am getting nervous. I haven't prepared enough, so I really need to start studying the world news and essay writing a lot more now. I really want to become a Foreign Service Officer one day, but I think it will be hard for me to fail the exam over and over again before I get in.

  • My favorite Japanese kotowaza applies well here: 案ずるより産むがやすし. It has a few different interpretations, my favorite being 'A fear is often greater than the danger.' I think you've got a pretty good shot with the amount of stuff you've studied. You sure impress me with your knowledge about american government and stuff. I'll bet you do better than you think you will. At the very least, 俺は応援するやな~
    Good luck!
    • Thanks man! I'll do my best, but I just need to keep myself pumped up about studying for it, that's all.
