Today is a Test Day!


Yup. Human Physiology test. The first one of three.

I’m taking this class “Intro to Human Physiology” on Coursera. The class itself is taught by two professors at Duke University.

Coursera

I’m REALLY enjoying the class.

But I HATE taking tests.

I suck at them! I mean come on, I failed the written test for my driver’s license the first time I took it. Seriously!

Which reminds me, I have to renew my driver’s license this week, and I have to take the vision test. They can also make me retake the written test as well as the driving test. Maybe I should have said this is a test week…

I also had to take a fitness test on my new exergame Nike Kinect Training.

Yup, total EPIC FAIL.

Although, surprisingly, I’m more athletic than the average 30 – 39 year old woman…

That makes me feel like a big bowl of awesomesauce….

Ya, I also have this bridge to sell, it’s Golden, and really nice. Lots of traffic…. great view….

At least I finally got a workout in, but I digress.

I have been studying all weekend, listening to lectures, and coloring. Yes, you read that right, coloring. I have a human physiology coloring book that I purchased over a year ago for Sam’s homeschooling (I know, it’s a bit advanced, but it’s for when she’s a bit older and I’ll be explaining it to her anyway…).

Like all my coloring books, I scanned it so that I can print out pages as I need them. Well, I found that the coloring book coincides exactly with the course I’m taking. I must have printed off 20 pages. That’s printed on both sides…

My fingers are KILLING me! I didn’t realize coloring could hurt so much.

The good news is, it has actually helped me to understand the material better. I have no idea why, but it worked. I’m assuming that’s why Sam really likes it when I give her pages to color like the biology page we did on the different kingdoms.

I have until the 25th to finish the test, so I’m going to get in some extra coloring studying today and tomorrow and try to take the test on Wednesday. That’s the plan anyway. I’ll let you know how that works out…

I hope my fingers hold out that long.

Two other classes that I signed up for started today including a writing class and a course on ADHD. What’s really cool about this whole thing is even if I don’t take the tests, or even finish the course, I can download all the lecture videos and notes to my computer and watch them whenever I want. Talk about convenient!

At the end of each course, you get a certificate of completion signed by the instructor. You can pay to get a nice certificate that has the university’s seal on it as well as the instructors signature, but it’s about $100.

On top of taking the class, I’ve been doing a million other things including crocheting stuff to sell on Etsy, and finishing up a cross stitch project I’ve been working on, not to mention homeschooling Sam.

I wish I got paid for doing all of this! I’d be a fucking millionaire!! Maybe even a billionaire!!

Hey, I can dream.

Until tomorrow my friends… Unless I fail the test…

Then I’ll just be moping…

  1. I know that feeling and if I was paid for the half of what I did around here, I too could be a millionaire, lol!! Good luck and sending good vibes your way on the tests!! 🙂

  2. Good luck on all those tests. Hopefully you’ll come through with flying colors – on every one of them. 🙂

    Tests are always a pain in the tail. I’ve recently changed jobs and have had to take certification tests for the brands in both. I’m tested out at this time (and luckily, certified). Good luck!

    • I remember when I had to take my certification test years ago. I was petrified, and passed by the skin of my teeth. I’m just not a test taker. I suck at it… lol I’m actually still putting off the physiology test lol!!
