I used to think that caffeine had no affect on me, that was until last night. During our fifteen minute pause, taken around 7:30pm, I ambled down to Starbucks and ordered a venti ice-brewed coffee. I know. Venti? What was I thinking? However to my credit when I realized just how much coffee that was, I only commenced to drinking half of it.
But last night I slept little, very little. During most of the night I wasn’t even tired. I did manage to nod off occasionally, though I was awakened by one thing or another, interrupting what was supposed to be my slumber.
Today will be “interesting”.
Bring On A2.4. And Start A2 Exam?
Last night I registered for the final quarter of the A-series, A2.4. I also registered for the Start A2 exam, which will be held near the end of April. I fully admit that I am not prepared to take the exam, but I have five weeks to cram.
At the end of last night’s “A2 Exam Preparation” class, the final one in the five-week run, I wondered if I could ask for the return of my $110 exam fee. I was feeling that unskilled. We’ll see how things go. The worst that can happen to me is that I completely flub the exam and have to register to re-take it in the Fall.
Tonight will be the final class for my A2.3 class. I’m looking forward to it, as well as I am looking forward to the three week break that lies between it and the start of A2.4.
March Is Going To Be An Expensive Month For Me
Even if you remove the $1900 stupidity tax I applied to my life toward the end of February, which I paid in March, I have had, or in some cases chosen, to shell out for other expensive things this month:
- LEAF ticket — originally scheduled for January/Febraury but leaked into this month
- Annual house insurance (I don’t do escrow)
- Another semester of German, and an additional fee to take the Start A2 exam
Looks as if I’m about to embark on a “Save The Budget” period lasting until the end of the month, or at least until I get all of these expenses settled.
Oh yeah, next week I plan to start my stuff selloff in order to attempt to earn back the $1900 spent fixing the car. My effort will be listing things on eBay, hoping that I can both earn back the cash and empty the house at the same time.
Is it Friday yet?
