I went to the college today to take my placement tests (YAY!). The great news is that I aced them-I scored a perfect 99/99 in Reading which means I did even better on the college placement test than I did on the GED test. Because I got a perfect score I am exempt from taking Reading classes which, in true nerd form, I am actually kind of bummed about.
I got a 98/99 in Writing and all I can think is thank God-I would have had to hang my head in shame if I had failed that. Imagine a blogger/freelance writer who couldn't write!
I also didn't fail Math. That is the only standard I can set for math as I am truly terrible at it, but I'm pretty proud of myself for not having to take remedial non-credit classes. Besides, lawyers don't use a heck of a lot of math anyway unless they are going to be tax attorneys-which I have no intention of being.
I got all of my financial aid paperwork done and I was all set to go, and then came the bad news-while FAFSA can get my paperwork done in a week it takes my college two whole months. Basically that means that I don't get to go this quarter unless I can pay for it out of pocket (and that is totally not happening). So now I get to ready-set-wait for the Summer quarter. I'm so excited, if I were a lap dog I would be piddling on the floor right now. Unfortunately I am a human so I'm just going to have to wait as patiently as I can for the next quarter to come around.
Come on, June-hurry up and get here already!
