Life is Just One Damned Thing After Another elbert hubbard

My prevailing life in pictures:


Very studious.


This is what a notebook looks like when one
fails miserably on their practice exams.
Once you get over the shock and horror of my first attempts at genius-ness; try, if you will, to notice the re-takes on the bottom 1/2 of the page. Really,I'mnotaduncecapwearer. Promise!


Dinner table converted.
Yes, that was my dinner last night.
What?!
One cannot get more gourmet than Diet Mt. Dew and Craisons. Geesh.


Anyhow, that's me in three photographs.

For the past week, this has been my life sucking vampire and this is how it shall be for a bit. My dinner may change from time to time, because, truth be told, I don't really like soda (I know, blasphemy!) and I'd really rather have a glass of wine and a cupcake. But I don't have a cupcake. Wine is a different story, but the main focus here is to study. And that I am.

With that, I have successfully avoided studying for 28-minutes & 32.7-seconds. The devil is pulling me back.


I bid you adieu.

I feel your pain! Been there...done that...not all that long ago.

It'll be over soon!!

When's your test???

Jen said...

Alli: I know you know. The husband knows too. That's his Anatomy book where I cleverly blocked out his name with pencils. But it has been a rough ride - in taking the practice exams, I've found more often than not that this is a CLINICAL test - not what we were taught at school. So I be edumacating meself this past week.

***le sigh***

I'm not telling my dooms day - errr . . test date for fear of failing. I promise to tell when I pass. I'll let you know when I don't - if I don't - once I stop crying in shame. . .

Deal?

You're gonna do great! I have tons of faith in you! Let the devil pull you. You'll be sooo glad when it's all over!

Good luck!

Jay said...

You're gonna totally kick butt on that test!

Jen said...

RLL: I so wish and pray that I will! Thank you!

Jay: I hope so - I will believe when I see/do it! Thank you too!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Thank you for sparing the time to show us that. I always found that a glass of wine helped the studying...

Alli said...

I'll have some wine for you!!! :)

You'll do great, chica!

hugs!!

Jen said...

Chief Rock Chef: Maybe 2 glasses of wine. . . ?

Alli: Thank you! I do hope I do! Let me know how the wine is. I'll be waiting. . .drooling. . .

Ian said...

Have faith. You'll rock it. Booze, in moderation is a good study aid. I had a wee whisky to help me sleep before all my major exams.

Jen said...

Ian: you may have a point there. I've been staying up freakishly late for the past 5 or so days. Maybe I need to consider the bourbon. (***don't shake your head at me!***)

Baby news?

Ian said...

I'm not shaking my head. If that crap makes you sleep then drink that crap :-)

News? Nup.

ETK said...

Grrrrl - I will MAIL YOU SOME CUPCAKES. Send me your address.

I'm not kidding.

NOW.

You are gonna kick some serious massage therapy test booty. I know it. Cause you're smart and tall and beatimous! (tall really counts on this stuff, you know?)

Freakazojd said...

Oh, are you tall, too? Well heck, then you're TOTALLY going to kick butt on your exam! You go, girlfriend! Because I'm so '90s like that. :)
xoxo

Jen said...

Ian: very funny.

I'll be waiting. . .

ETK: awww! Thanks! I really do believe the taller someone is the smarter they are. Right? Right. Okay,maybenosomuch. But good theory, girl.

Freakaojd: Yep. I'm Amazonian. I'm over 6' tall when I put on my stilettos. So, when ETK met me, I looked like a giant. For real.

Emmeline said...

This is why I don't want to go back to school!! Good luck, hope you pull through!

Em

Jen said...

Em: thanks! I never, EVER worried about college exams the way I worry about this test. This stuff seems to be so much more difficult. I can't seem to figure out why. . . ?

I hope I can do it too - I'm almost contemplating moving my exam date.

tt said...

Awwww, sweet lil' chicka...not to worry, you'll do fine...I know this for sure. I got a direct line to the "TestyGods"...seriously! They told me you'll be fine if you eat a cupcake or two. Seriously..again!
Just remember to breathe. Need me to sing the good Morning song to you some day? ETK says it starts the day out really good. :)

Fi said...

Man that stuff looks haaaaard! My brain hurts just reading your notes! You can do it girl!
