31 flavors of ice SCREAM


Some people drink, others smoke, I eat ice cream or rather ice SCREAM. As frustrating days go I had a top ten day today. It is all about a test called the EC-4. It must be some kind of cynical joke to call a trick ridden general examination test for teachers in Texas an EC-anything. It was tough, specially when half-way during the examination I discovered, well it was more of a revelation, that I was taking the wrong test. Let me restate. I WAS TAKING THE WRONG TEST. You see I had take a EC-4 test, so I went on-line and registered for it after paying $125. Today I found out there are two different EC-4 tests. To make matter more confusing I was offered a Bilingual Teaching position pending the passing of the EC-4 test. So I registered for the Bilingual EC-4 test. I think it makes perfect sense, but it doesn't make any sense for them (the school district) because I was suppose to take the Generalist EC-4 test. Nobody told me that, I'm fuming, I will have to take a new test and pay $125 again for the right test. So I'm boiling mad and am eating lots and lots of ice SCREAM, French Vanilla with caramel syrup to be exact. Tomorrow I am calling the parties involved in this most confusing situation to see if I can get credit for the wrong-test-I-didn't-study-for that I took this afternoon. I-could-just-hyphenate-myself-to-death-tonight. But dear Scarlett said it best-"Tomorrow is another day."

That is horrible, Pink!!! I think you should try to convince them to give you a refund and let you take the right test. Jeeze. I recommend another scoop of vanilla with extra carmel sauce.

I'm catching up on blog visits too - been a busy few weeks in Giraffe World!

How horrendous about the test - I'm sure if you follow it up they should give you the fee back.

Enjoy the Ice Scream! I've just done a post on stress release - seems to be a lot of it on Planet Earth!

At least there's still ice cream in the world to help.

I hope you get that job and then start earning enough $$$ so that the stupid $125 won't even matter anymore.

Good luck with the test!
