Topic: I did really well in my placement tests!

I took my college placement tests today. The results were what I thought they would be. I totally rocked the reading & writing segments (99% and 97%), and completely bombed the math section (43%).
So now I need to go through orientation & get some class assignments.
And I had a phone screen today which I felt really good about, although I've learned to put zero stock in how I feel about phone screens.
Anyway, I made a HUGE stride in my New Beginning. Yay me!!!

School is great, it keeps the brains busy and after so many months/years of focussing on the shit we're putting behind us, it's actually pleasurable to accomplish those goals.

Having read your posts I for one am in no way surprised by your 97% writing mark!!!!!
I can see your confidence and self esteem returning in spadefuls.
So glad you did not let your crazy ex destroy you.

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

This is so exciting! I'm happy for you!!!
It took me a minute to realize what you meant by phone screen...for a job, right? At first I thought you meant a literal phone screen and I didn't understand why you'd put stock in a phone screen.

Even if you can't control the world around you, you are still the master of your own soul.
