off to take an exam on reading and writing (or: silly)

in virginia, we have three state exams for the teaching license. i am off to take the VCLA (Virginia Communication and Literacy Assessment), which exists to check my reading and writing skills. and to some extent, my ability to edit written work. but mostly asks: can you read and write?


it’s 5:21 am. it is raining. i have to drive 90 minutes to the test because it isn’t offered in my hometown (which is home to a big state university – why we don’t have testing centers here is beyond me). then i need to take my sleepy butt to the health department for a tb test.

all without coffee. i may start drooling.

anyhow. this test cost me $130. later, i’ll rant about that.
