"All the leaves are brown, and the sky is gray. California Dreamin, on such a winter's day."
Basically switch out winter for rainy, and you've got an idea what it is like in New Jersey at the moment, though the rain pretty much cleared up a while ago, about 4pmish EST time.
Things have been pretty smoothly lately.
I'm still averaging 2-3 work days a week as a substitute teacher in my old high school, which has been really great. My school has a lot of amazing students and teachers, and is just a nice environment to be in. Too bad they don't need a Science teacher. x_x
At the dollar store, I have 20 hours for the next coming week, which is a 5 hour increase from my current schedule.
I don't know if the change is from now on, or just a one week thing, but either way it's pretty sweet. I think they are starting to see how good of a worker I am, and that prompted the increase in the hours. I can't really think of any other reason to give one of the newest employees extra hours.
This weekend, Saturday to be specific, I will be taking the regular content GRE's at a testing center near me. I don't think I'm nervous per se, but I'm not exactly excited about going to take the test. This test just brings back all the annoying and depressing memories of the SAT's, which this test is the just the grown up version of. I only scored like 1080 on the SATS, just low enough to loose scholarship money from the state for a state school, which left my mother relatively unhappy with me.
My main problem is the math. I suck at math, and when you throw together a section of questions that encompasses what I should have learned in four years of math, it gets confusing. And frustrating, especially when your calculated answer doesn't match any of the choices.
Plus, you can't use a calculator! I'm taking the computer version, so that should at least be a little better, hopefully.
I'm planning on turning around and applying back to Montclair for Graduate school, so the fact that I graduated undergraduate from there, and knew much of the science faculty, hopefully pushes me into the accepted category. The science programs do not have any minimum scores, so I just need to try my hardest, and hope for the best. Hopefully my verbal score can pull me through this time.
