How do I find the circumference of a circle? Oh, this says 2πr. Ok. I'll just have to remember that for the test. 2πr. That shouldn't be hard. Wait, what about the volume of a cylinder? That's πr². Ok. I'll just remember 2πr and πr² for the test. I can do that. But what about converting Celsius to Fahrenheit? Ok, I see that's F = 9/5C + 32. Ok, I need to remember 2πr, πr², and F = 9/5C + 32.
Anyway, I'm up to about 20 little hints or formulas that I have to remember for the test, and frankly, I don't have much hope that's going to happen. You kids might know all those, but I was never great in math and I haven't used even one of the formulas I'm studying since high school. Man, it's intimidating to be doing this after so long. And this is by far the easiest of the 5 tests I have to take! If I even make it into the program. (Deep breath.) One step at a time.
So what could be more cruel than me starting another day that will easily be twelve hours of studying, and then getting an e-mail with the surf forecast that shows it is THE FIRST PERFECT DAY IN WEEKS AND WEEKS AND WEEKS?! And tomorrow will be the same - actually, even better! It kills me. Kills me. I need a surf so bad right now. I can't tell you what a day in the water would do for me. But I can't even consider it - there's just no way. I got a cheapy ticket to the Blazer-Jazz game tonight, and I don't even think I can make it to that. I know, probably not a lot of sympathy for the unemployed girl who can't make it out for a surf, but that really hurts.
Ok, back to the books.
