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.

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.
