Hey Guys! So on Monday I took the Praxis. It was really hard. I studied for about two weeks and I went in nervous and I left the same. If you do not know the Praxis test is one of a series of American teacher certification exams written and administered by the Educational Testing Service. Various Praxis tests are usually required before, during, and after teacher training courses in the U.S. Since speech is in the college of education I must pass the test to declare my major. (Which sucks) So this was my first attempt and I have a feeling that I will be taking it again. The test is broken into three sections math, reading, and writing. The reading section was the hardest section I did, because the things they talked about in the reading passages were of things I never even heard of so it made answering questions a lot harder for me. The math section had a lot of percent questions which I either got them all right or all wrong. We will see in two weeks when my grades come in.
I also have been doing a lot of outside work this week. Over the weekend Sarah Jane and I went to get plants and flowers and total we spent about $150. She got lots of plants and I got vegetable and fruit plants and some flowers. Then I spent hours planting the flowers and cleaning up the swing set area in my back yard. The funny thing is I never plant, we do this almost do this every year and I never plant the flowers. Sarah Jane is rubbing her green thumb on me because she loves flowers and gardening.
I also found out that I got an 80 on my phonetic final, the one I was super nervous for and studied my butt off. I was so happy with that grade. The only bad thing is that I have to take the class again because I got a 76.7% (C+) in the class and I need at least a B- so I missed it by 3 points. It is really frustrating because I got all A’s on my assignments except on my midterm and final. It’s the midterm that was not good because I failed it and it messed up my whole semester. So now I am taking 6 classes next fall, 6 days a week. It’s going to suck.
Well that is my week so far.
