Graduation Home Stretch

Graduation Home Stretch

Time to dust off the books and finish this degree!  Once you’ve hit the graduation home stretch it’s a little easier to slow down, but you have to finish strong.  You have to run as fast across the finish line as you started out. So here’s what I have left to accomplish before I can graduate: [ ] Western Civ 1 (CLEP) [ ] Western Civ 2 (CLEP) [ ] World Religions (DSST) [ ] Organizational Behavior (DSST) [ ] Soviet Union (DSST)…

Update and a Restart

Update and a Restart

Hello everyone, Where did my blogging drive go?  I have no idea!  Somewhere in between life and school and work I got too busy to keep up the blog.  I kept writing (couldn’t stop that!), but it never made it onto the blog.  But I have resolved to do better in 2015 and journal all the interesting things I am learning with school and work.  So here is an update and a map for the new year.  And I will…

Update on Goals for the Week

Update on Goals for the Week

So, I’m studying for four tests at the same time.  Last week I took a practice test for each subject, after letting them to push through and finish Algebra.   Anyway, here are the results. Statistics – took an assessment and scored at 23%.  Wonderful news for someone who doesn’t have a clue about statistics. Sociology – 49%.  Again, thrilled that with no studying that’s my score Ethics in America – 40%.  Not my strong point.  If it was Biblical…

New Year's Resolution

New Year's Resolution

Every year I take a sheet of notebook and fill it with the goals of the year.  Some of them will take a few weeks, others will cover the entire 365 days I’m given.  Sometimes I wish it were a leap year so I could claim those extra 24 hours, but other times I know I can fulfill these goals – no prob. I have 11 goals this year.  Yes, that’s a randomly chosen number.  🙂  But one of my…

This Feels Really Weird!

This Feels Really Weird!

We have officially moved into the part of the year when you feel like you are in limbo.  You now refer to “next year” as “this year”, even though it’s still “next” year.  And you start telling people, “well, I guess we’ll see you next year”.  It sounds weird to say, but with only 10 days left in the year… I’m going to be taking a break from social media of any kind through these remaining 10 days.  So the…

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my!

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my!

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my! Macroeconomics CLEP continues to go well.  I scored a 66% on my practice test, CollegePlus tells you to go take it when you reach a 60%.  I wanted to take it this month, but the Christmas season around this place is crazy and it didn’t fit in the schedule.  So, I’m hanging on to it through the holidays and taking it in January.  Possibly on the 10th… Sociology CLEP is so “politically correct” it…

Hello, March, April, CLEPs, Life, Sickness, Chickens, and Apology

Yes, yes.  I know it is April 23 and I am just now blogging.  I had already planned on taking a break for April, but I did mean to tell you about it.  Then I got the worst sinus infection of my life.  Incidentally the only sinus infection of my life.  I did nothing for a week but lay on my back and cry and run fever.  Pitiful.  But I’m back now!  Here with CLEPing news, tips, and updates.
