The only math I do is adding up how many cans of Ensure they drank.
So in the next three weeks I need to cram every formula and mathematical theory that I never learned and never understood into my tiny little brain. (DEAR GOD, HOW I HATE MATH!) Frankly, I have a lot of work to do, and I'm just a wee bit nervous about it. So rather than spending my free time blogging and watching Judge Mathis reruns, I will instead be buckling down and trying to remember how long divison works while systematically plotting the death of whatever douchebag invented that shit. Meanwhile, you all can spend time enjoying some VIRTUAL BUBBLE WRAP- I figure this should entertain you for at least another week and a half, at which time I will consider making another post and/or bludgeoning myself with a large metal bat.
So wish me luck and don't laugh too hard when I forget how to add and subtract fractions, BECAUSE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS WHOLLY (ha!) THERE ARE NO FRACTIONS INVOLVED IN THE SPELUNKING OF POO!
I hate math too, with a throbbing passion. What are you going to grad school to do? Tell us the details yo!
you know i feel ya. the gre is not greeeaatt! like i had hoped, but rather about as much fun as the thesis i am writing now. and think, a passing score on that sucker got me here!
i bid you, remember your humble beginnings in Mrs. Elizalde's algebra II class--you, me, and carmel, the kid who taught us how to be ghetto, (not) learning about FOILing (or LOIFing, if you want to) but rather waving the hot pink "Elizalde Bucks" we got out of pity because we sucked at math THAT BAD.
in carmel's words, "girl, you to' up from the flo' up!!" (at least that's how you'll feel after you take the damn test. i know i did.
don't worry, you'll do fine. just offer the proctor a lap dance. it worked for me!
And curses on you for the bubble-wrap link! Like I don't have enough temptations to waste my time on the web. I posted about it on my blog, and linked back to you too :)
Thanks for the well wishes everyone! I'll surely need them when the time comes. I hope to go back to school to become a Nurse Practitioner. My ULTIMATE DREAM (which at this point in my life seems so far-fetched that it's nothing more than a fantasy) is to open up my own Hospice House. In the meantime, I will work towards getting my master's in gerontology and get some more experience working with the geezers, to whom I am so very partial. We'll see where the road of life takes me, though... there's no telling!
GOOD LUCK on the GREs! I wish I could give you some great advice but I gots none, since I suck at tests. My brother got all the good test genes in the family. He got perfect scores on the SATs and GREs. Then he got 3 masters and 2 PhDs. Fucker.
But, BUT, what I really want to say is, considering how long I've known you and loved you on the internet - (since December?) I have never loved you more than I love you right now. That you want to dedicate your work to taking care of geezers. That your dream is hospice.
I admire you. Heartily.
I took the civil service exam and was FREAKING OUT because fractions scare me and my husband mocks me when he is like honey two 1/4 cups of sugar is a half a cup, like qaurters DUH! Yeah, and i will ask him that EVERY TIME I bake some shit.
You wan't to know that didn't you? hahaha
THANKS Lapix, your wishes mean a lot to me. You were my very first internet/blogger reader and friend waaaay back in the ancient time of DECEMBER 2004! Yes, my long-term goal involves hospice. It has for a very long time. In nursing school I patiently went through all of my clinical rotations, waiting and waiting for the experience that would pierce me like a bullet and say, HERE! *THIS* IS WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING! I was so disappointed that I hadn't had such an experience until my senior year, when I did a couple of weeks with a home hospice nurse. It was so amazing, it was everything I loved about nursing and was the very reason that I chose it as a profession. I can't help it-- I love dem geezers! (Although, hospice is not all geezers; but they are, of course, still my favorite!)
