Pass the Vino

*This is a major "debbie downer" post; if you don't want to hear complaining, don't read it.*

It's 12:45 and I am drinking wine.

I rarely, RARELY drink. But this has been the most off week I have had in years.

Today's test, overall, went well. I scored an 82.4% (which is above the national average). I was in the 95% percentile for three of the sections. And then came the science. Which I failed, by 3 points. And I wouldn't say it is due to a lack of intelligence. Silly me just didn't realize I needed to know what kind of rocks form islands, or how to know which element would transfer electrons to form an ionic compound in order to become an RN. Never mind the fact that I scored 15 points higher than the national average in Human Body Science and a whopping 35 points higher in Physical Science. That doesn't matter at all; not to them at least. They only care about the overall for the section.

Since I failed that ONE section, they won't even look at my scores. I must retake it on March 25. The application deadline for the program is April 1. So, basically, next time is my one and only hope.

I also got my car stuck in a foot of snow. And yesterday I overslept by an hour, resulting in me being 40 minutes late to babysit. And you already heard about my experience taking care of three girls. Also, my schedule has been so ridiculously chaotic that I haven't been able to find the time to workout in over a week, which is making me feel like a tub o' lard yet again. And given that my parents have looked at me and said, "You don't look good. You look past the point of exhaustion," wine was the only logical way I could think to relax.

And did I mention that Lent starts today and I have chosen to give up pop (soda for all you weirdos ;)) AND sugar? Only for God would I give up my drugs of choice.

So while expletives run through my mind in rapid succession, I'm toasting to you, my dear readers, for your words of encouragement and prayers to God. I truly, truly appreciate it.

I know it is cliche, but true - it can only get better from here!

I hope you are enjoying your wine...

I can't even fathom giving up soda AND sugar! Good luck with that...

As for the test, I am so sorry that it didn't go great. At least you can focus on the science and study that. And then, you will do FANTASTIC!!! (because you did awesome on the other sections).

Good luck! It will only get better... especially after a glass of wine...
