Praxis 1

Well, today is the day - the day I take my Praxis 1. This test allows me to officially be a part of the education program at Fransican University, the school I attend. Man am I nervous.

If I don't pass it, I can take it again, but I SHOULD be able to pass it. This is the basic one - reading, writing, and math. The problem? I SUCK AT MATH. I haven't done math, any math, since my senior year in high school. I graduated in 2007. Folks, thats a long time to go without math and then be expected to remember all equations for all geometric figures.

Come on, give me history! I am petrified to fail this test.

Its not cheap to take this test either, so I definitely don't want to fail it. I don't want to have to admit that I fail it. Boy, I'm scared.

Plus, I can't use a calculator. Lets be real for a moment - in real life, if I have any math problem to do, I use a calculator. I can't do it in my head and I don't know many people that can multiple 249 x 154 in their head.. at least I can't. So, why can't I show you that I am fabulous with a calculator?!

In my head, all I think that this test determines my fate. Realistically, it doesn't. I can retake it or the part I don't pass. But, I just don't want to have to do that. I have two years left of college - I have already been in college for 3 ( including the semester I currently am in).

I will let you all know how I do.. I'm taking a computer based on, so I will know if I pass the reading and math part immediately. God help me.
