December 14th

  I don't know what to say about the shooting at the elementary school in Connecticut.  These tragedies happen way to often but this one, right before Christmas, this one, at an elementary school, this one that took the lives of so many innocent young children.  This one hurts the worst. 
    I'm also angry, I'm angry at the coward that did this and then took his own life so that he won't ever have to see the unimaginable grief in the faces of family members and loved ones that lost those dear to them.  He won't have to answer for his actions, won't give an explanation, no, he chose a coward's way out which I suppose is fitting, because what kind of human being could do something so disgustingly horrible, only the worst kind of sick, weak coward.  That is all I will ever say about that lowlife.
  The brave ones are the teachers and other school employees.  My mother, cousin, aunt and grandmother have all been or are teachers and I know that the teachers at the school did everything in their power to protect those children.  They are truly brave and they deserve our love and support.
 I cannot imagine how the families affected by this are going to cope not only over the next few weeks, but every year when December 14th comes closer on the calendar.

And the streak continues!

Once again I have yelled at poor little innocent animals, but I think one of them was evil this time.  I should explain...
  So Monday night I was driving home, taking a different way then usual so that I could go slower since it was rain/snowing and driving in that crap is my own personal nightmare, when I see two deer on the side of the road.  One is busy munching away on grass or hay or whatever they eat but the other one, oh the other one, she is eyeing my car so I yell at her "You stupid, STUPID deer!!!!  Don't even THINK about it"  Her response?  She cocked her ear at me as if to say "You wanna dance, bring it on, I'll wreck your shit" and she eyeballed me as I crept by at about 3 miles an hour and driving in the middle of the road.  I did not want to dance, so I continued on my way, cursing stupid deer under my breath for the next 10 miles or so.

Time to brush off those test taking skills

  I have finally come to the end of the course I've been taking for the past 6 months or so and now it's time for the big final exam which is 80% of my grade!  AH!  I've had to take section quizzes throughout and not to toot my own horn, but I've been pretty much kicking ass so far.  For the quizzes, I was able to print out the test and do it over a period of a few days or longer if needed.  The final test is proctored by a manager at my job and I only have 6 hours to take it.  Needless to say, I'm freaking out a little.  I haven't taken a real test since college and that was more years ago then I care to remember.  I used to be a pretty good test taker, but the anxiety is high with this one.  There is so much material and I worry about second guessing myself into wrong answers.  If anyone has any tried and true test taking tips, I'm all ears! 
  I'm so ready to be done this course!

So I had planned to write this glorious post all about me being adopted and all kinds of interesting things.  However, I'm so tired I just want to curl up under the pretty fake Christmas tree and take a nap.  So I guess it's going to have to wait for another day.  I am oh so happy I have tomorrow off!
