Dec. 14th, 2005

tried registering for classes online just now, but was denied, as it was an hour past 'business hours'. meh.

i DID make it to clark and took my placement testing:

reading: 97%
writing: 98%
math: 23%

... woops. i don't really need much math for my prereq's anyway, so i can work on that durned algebra. my biggest goal was to get into english 101 without having to take any non credit courses before hand, and i did that. woot.

i'm so freaking tired tonight, that i hurt. but i have two more 7 am until midnight shifts ahead of me, and then it's sleepy (and singy) time.

almost quit my job at michael's today, but decided to hang on. thought i overheard denise say she was moving to a different store. tee hee.

now, i shall trod upstairs, brush my teeth, remove my clothing down to my sports bra and underwear, collapse for three hours, and get up and do this again.

my advice for the math part of it... study up and retake it to get a better score so that you can get into finite math if it will meet your math req's. don't take any classes until you can do that, cause you will be stuck taking a thousand math classes to get there. and/or when you are ready for math classes talk to me and i will reccommend teachers.

for pre-req's i recommend art appreciation with conway, and women's studies with ulner, intrapersonal communications for speech if you're shy like me, and i have 120 credits at clark, so i know a lot about what classes to take if you want advice.

thanks for the advice! i'm actually kind of glad that i ended up going through math 030 through 095, because it refreshed soooo much that i don't think i would have grasped onto just by studying, plus i learned so much more. i ended up with gadbury for 030, barnhill for 090 (the best!) and kaskowitz for 095. i really owe my current college-ness to kaskowitz, i totally should have gotten a D by all counts, but he graded on a curve enough to squeak me into passing.

i really love school, but it's so hard to get motivated to leave the house on cold soggy days like today.

Tee Hee!

I'm horrible at math. Math sucks!

Those are some good scores overall. :)

I took the THEA before I started classes....300% is perfect and the minimum you can get is 230...I got 290 in English, 280 in writing and 207 in Math......see which one is my downfall as well!

oh my God, my scores were EXACTLY the same!!

How about; I'll do the math parts of any placement tests you have to take and you do the English parts of any I have to take. Deal? Deal!

Yay! Good work!
Let me know if you want any adivce on what teachers are good and all that...

I second this. In the past two years, I've become uncomfortably familiar with Clark College.

i'm always game for teachers and stuff! grademyprofessor.com so far has done wonders for me, and i've only gotten one teacher out of the deal that i couldn't learn from, and she's gone now, wee!

Damn woman!

I empathize! I remember my working and college days. 4 hours of sleep a day during the week for about a year.

Mailing you a nice warn comforter and slippers for when you do get a chance to slow down.
