Thanks Molly!

See. I'm easy to please. Back to 150.

I am studying for a test. A huge test. A possibly life (job) changing test. I took it before and bombed it. FAIL. Which was hard for me to take because every test I've taken as an adult I've Ace'd without studying for it (all my teaching cert. tests.) This is not a teaching cert, and WHEN (I'm trying so freaking hard to be optimistic!) I pass I will tell you about it. When I don't pass I will go back to this post and delete it so we can all just pretend that it never happened.

So, why am I blogging when I am suppose to be studying?

You!

I have the hardest time with your blogs. I get sucked in and next thing I know an hour has passed. An hour that I was suppose to be studying....

FAIL.

I'm trying SO hard this time. The last time I didn't study at all. Nada (FAIL) so I was not shocked when I failed, I was more shocked that I was pretty close to passing.

Which means if I would have just studied the first time I might have passed.

January 29th I take this horrific thing. 5 hours of my life sitting in front of a computer answering mutliple choice questions until my eyes bug out of my head.

I think I need to ground myself from reading blogs. Maybe I should ground myself from writing my blog.....nah, I need to do a little procastination!

I need Cliff Notes for your blogs.

Study. Study. Study.

There are life changing tests you can take that affect you as a teacher? Do they result in a pay increase, because if so - I INSIST that you share!! lol Good luck regardless, but really ... you can't leave us hanging like that!

There are Becky! My Masters is not in teaching (GASP!) I love my job so much that I didn't bother with this test to do something different. However, I want to make sure I have it incase I decide to change careers (aka-make more $$$)

I'm the worlds most superstitious person. I don't want to say what it is because I don't want to embarase myself when I flunk it (again.)

Leah Fry said...

Well, I guess I'd better wish you luck then. Life changing is good, especially if it brings with it the possibility of making a batter income!

I hated studying for tests... that's probably why I haven't started my Masters yet. But a pay raise might be worth that test!

Cliff Notes: Panache is still rehabbing, was NQR Saturday, but not really off either. Still want to get a puppy. Weather is bizarre. Work is overwhelming. Yep, that about sums it up!

lol! Good luck with the studying! With Denali in such good hands that should ease your mind a bit :)

You are not going to flunk! You are supposed to be positive remember? Think of passing and you will pass. :) Oh and you don't get cliff notes because if we give you cliff notes you will want to read our blogs. So you are officially grounded lol. Go study!! I know you'll pass but good luck anyway!!

I get sucked in to the same trap.

Sarah said...

What are you doing reading and responding to comments??? Get studying you!!!

Haha j/k. I've always sucked at the self discipline needed for studying. Hence the reason I haven't gone back to school after my BA. I keep saying, "One day..."

Good luck!!

Denali's Mom said...

I wondered how long until someone caught on that I was still procastinating. :)

Meh, study-shmuddy. I'd rather just read blogs and eat cake.

Here are my cliff notes:

Pia is pretty.
Pia does great on the ground.
She's a hussy under saddle.
what to do! what to do!
Pia is pretty....
But my back is still not quite "right"

end scene.

I tried not studying too much for a major, major test and missed passing by two percentage points... still mad at myself for that one. What's worse, is my study buddy DID pass! Stupid moi. That was was 20 years ago, too. If I tried to do it again I know the curriculum is about 15 times harder now, so I think it's a non-starter. Good luck and STUDY!!!

RiderWriter said...

Also, I should have mentioned, will you check out my new blog, pretty please? But NOT UNTIL AFTER YOU STUDY some more, young lady! :-)

Rebecca said...

Good luck! I always get caught up in reading blogs too... in fact, I'm procrastinating studying at this very moment by reading blogs. Ouch, convicted! =P

Back to the studying!

WishIHadAHorsey said...

Good luck! (and no more responses until you have finished, young lady!!!)

SprinklerBandit said...

Good luck! Here's my blog:

It is cold. Izzy is cute, good, and I love her.

End blog.

Tests are horrible. I always freak but normally do good. I guess the freaking out helps!
