That was a long test! It took about two hours to complete. Most likely because I read everything, read the question, read what part of the story they were talking about, read the answers and read the same part AGAIN and then picked the answer.
The comprehension and writing parts were fairly easy. I scored "above average" on writing and "excelled" at comprehension. Apparently reading blogs and writing one of my own helped! YAY go blogging!!!
The math was a COMPLETELY different story! I suck at math! I really like math, but for some reason, it takes me awhile to "get it". I'm pretty sure that's because I make it more difficult in my head then it actually is. I've always done that. It's something to work on. The good thing is the teacher that I talked to after the test said that I won't need a lot of math in pre-nursing. I'll have to complete Geometry 1 for my pre requisite. That might change when I talk to my counselor on Monday. I'm not counting on ANYTHING anyone says until I have a piece of paper in my hand from the school that says this is what I need for pre-nursing.
He also said that most, if not all of my classes can be taken at the campus here in town. There are actually two campuses here in town, which I wasn't aware of. He said I shouldn't have to go to the main campus for at least two years. I sighed a BIG sigh of relief when he said that! I was wondering how we were going to get the kids to school, me too school, if I had to be 30 miles away at the same time the kids had to be at school.
I have an appointment with the counselor on Monday and he'll give me my schedule and we'll talk about the grant some more. I've heard that if there is any balance left over from the grant, that goes to me. But once again, I am not counting on ANYTHING until I either have it in writing, or in hand. I don't want to be greedy and take any money that I don't "need'. Sure it would be nice to have the balance transferred to my account, but if I don't "need" it, then I don't want to take it. I don't want to feel as if I'm taking advantage of anything or abusing this amazing opportunity I have been given.
I am so thankful I have this opportunity to go to school. I just don't want to screw it up! I want to do everything "by the book" and make the best of this opportunity.
I don't feel silly for freaking out. I did well on the test and I took it seriously. I'm glad I was so mindful of it because if I wasn't, it means it's not important to me. It IS important to me!
I feel very lucky to have so much support. I have Husband who is cheering me on and told me tonight that we would work out a routine for studying, schooling and household chores. I have all of you who I could feel today. All day I got text messages, comments and emails FULL of support and encouragement. Thank you all so much for that! Even if you did think I was being a silly drama queen ;o) This is really happening! WOW!
