One small step to most..

One gigantic friggin leap to ME!

I did it .. I finally hit the send button on my college application. Yes I put it off until the very very very last minute. Out of fear no doubt, but what is done is done.

Later today my counselor called me and we worked through some of the technicalites and decided what path I needed to start on.. you know the blah blah blahs. Then she hits me with the bomb shell.. I have to take a placement test.

Umm excuse me WHAT?? I graduated from my previous school with a 4.0 but that doesn't matter.

I have a fear of test.. I will panic ever minute from now until Friday. I took the prep test and got 100% on the Math.. the English I didn't do so well on. Grammar.. I know nothing about Grammar! Who knew?

Any of you who reads this blog.. that is who knew!!!

My major issue right now is there is nothing to study! NOTHING. IF there were I would study until I knew each and ever scenario backwards and forwards. That is just how I am.. and probably got a 4.0 previously.. Well that and the fact that I learned how to raise 3 kids, hold down a job, go to school full time, and sleep only about 8 hours a week!

When I was in school before bets were placed on the number of hours I would get in a week.

Now I have to learn how to raise one 9 year old, work a stressful full time job, raise a four legged baby, be a wife, and figure out how I can do all of this and get some sleep.. why because I am OLD NOW. I don't think I can do the no sleep thing again. I like it too much.

Wait I have an idea.. I will figure out how much time I spend eating now and use that as sleep time.. maybe I will lose weight while doing this!

Some one tell me to shut up before I scare the pants off myself!!


  1. I'm sorry but I don't buy that 'I don't know grammar' stuff. You'll do fine. Sleep is overrated. And I am way impressed that you hit the send button.

  2. Congratulations! I'm pretty good at grammar, if you need any pep talks...

  3. You should have done your own homework. I did all the grammar lessons. Good thing you are smart.

    Just remember, it is a PLACEMENT test. My freshman year of college, they had to add several "lesser" English classes. It was the first year they wanted a 50/50 mix of males and females. They took every male with pulse.

  4. Hey, congratulations on pressing "send." I know what you're saying with the "test panics" cause I'm the exact same way. You, my dear, are going to be JUST FINE! And if you can do it without hurting yourself, give yourself a big pat on the back. I wish I was brave and motivated like you!

  5. I hate tests too. I have a re-occuring nightmare where I am back in school and they place a maths exam down on my desk in front of me and I can't answer any of the questions. It's absolutely horrible. Several years back I took a Medical Secretary course. I had to sit an AMSPAR medical terminology exam at the end of it. That is an examinatin which over 60% of the people in the United Kingdom that take it fail it. True, not a lie. I was terried of taking it, but I studied hard and trust me, it's alot harder to absorb stuff like that at the age of 49 than it is at the age of 29. I managed to pass and with honours too! I was so proud of myself. If I can do it, you can do it! You'll be just fine!
