A New Chapter

A New Quote

I have not added a new post in a long time. It's too much like work. But here's a great quote from a new (to me) author:

"I have trouble with beginnings. For one thing, I don't find stories all that interesting when you start at the beginning. If you ask me, you only know there is a story when you get to the middle. And besides, beginnings are hard to determine. One could argue that the true beginning to all stories is the beginning of time. But Morty is already eighty-two years old, so given our time constraints, I'll begin this story on the date I met, or, more specifically, first laid eyes on 'John Brown.

I took the English college placement test on Monday. It consisted of a reading portion and an essay. I crafted an exquisite 600-word epic missive and hit "Submit." The computer promptly crashed.

(NOT RETYPE IT, LADIES!!!) So I wrote another essay. And hit "Submit" again.

Yesterday I took the math and English college placement tests. I was a little offended that I had to take them. I took three Calculus classes...twenty-five years ago...and, really, that should be good enough for anybody. I figured that I had the math part cold. Well, I can tell you that I was absolutely, completely wrong. At some point during the test I actually felt my brain shrivel into a little ball and start whimpering. I prodded it with the next question about logarithmic functions.
