I think I am ready to just lay down and ... wait, lay down would imply that I'm going to sleep and I haven't managed that in ages. I mean - 5 hours last night and it's after midnight now, so the likelihood is that I'm going to be up late tonight too. What do I mean... "going to be"? I'm up late.
I am loving the music of Hamilton the musical and now I have to read the biography that inspired this dude to write a hip hop rap historical musical! And I even looked up ticket prices (ouch. as in in OUCH.) and now I think I will just buy the cast album and hope that they film the musical on Broadway and I get to buy that too.
Speaking of history... and social sciences... and the Praxis content exam for social sciences... No, I still do not know my score and probably won't until sometime next week. :-(. Something about BUSINESS days instead of normal days like the rest of life does. Ugh.
I took a practice GRE today and wasn't surprised to see that I probably could pass it already. I'm pretty sure that my writing skills are adequate (do not judge by my BLOG, because that's not the same as writing an essay. This is free write, baby. Put the words on the screen and press publish and who cares if it's grammatical.) My verbal skills are just fine too (practice test said I scored in the 86th percentile. Took it cold too, no prep at all. Booyah. what does Booyah mean anyway?)
But my math skills, while adequate, are too close to the edge for me. I need to bring some of those skills back up to the top, but again - took it cold without prep. Can only go up from here! As long as I relearn the formulas for areas and the quadratic equation and how to compute probability...
But if I didn't pass the Praxis content exam, who cares...
I think this is even more free verse than usual. My eyes are closed and I am typing typing typing along. Not a single typo there either, hah.
I am finally getting ahead in my class, which is good because the final appears to be a doozy. So far, I seem to be doing great. My major problem is being too perfectionistic and learning to let go and press submit already. For example - if an assignment is worth 20 points, and I *know* that my grammar is impeccable and that I am turning it in on time - boom - 10 points. How badly can I do on the insight and answering every question portions?? Not that badly.
But there is much to learn from these assignments, so I go as deep as I can to get every ounce of knowledge and learning from it. I don't know that I care that much for the online format. I like having classmates and seeing a teacher in real life. I can set up an appointment during office hours, but it's not the same. But it *is* easy to fit into my life, so that's good.
