PostSubject: I Am Excited =)   Fri Mar 13, 2009 6:54 pm

So, I WAS in school to become a drug counselor as some of you already knew this, but after got into ghost hunting and for other reason's I wont get into, I stopped doing it, its an online school, my books and such get mailed to me, then I take the exam's online.. Anyway I was looking at my old exam's today and my grades and decided I want to finish this and not give up on it, I have good grades and is no reason not to finish it, so I paid the back money I owed them to reinstate my courses =) (I am broke now lol) I only have like 9 exam's left until I finish it and I am excited about it, I want to counsel teenager's that are going down that WRONG road of life, or I can just add it to my other degree and certifcation's I dont use lol No, seriously, this is something I have wanted to do for many yrs and think its time to put it back into motion and finish it, too many lives being ruined by drugs.
Sorry to bore you all with that, just thought I would share that with you all because I am excited about continuing this =)

Took an exam today....

History of Substance; Societal Costs of ATOD Use, Abuse, and Dependency; Substance-related Diseases; Working in the Field of Substance Abuse Counseling; The Brain; Controlled Substances Schedules; Depressants -Grade 85 %

Technically I got a 90%, I technically only had 2 wrong, NOT 3, BUT as I was putting my answers in online from my answer sheet on paper, I accidently clicked wrong box grrr, but thats cool, Im still good 3 out of 20, but really only missed 2 =)
Yes, I work fast, pretty much already know MOST of these answers from my prior coueses already =)
Oh and I have less to finish that I thought, I said about 9 exams, only have 5 I THINK =)

Yes, change you can believe in. By the way you all are paying for that change in the amount of NINE TRILLION DOLLARS. Now he wants to monitor your garden in your own back yard so he can tax that!!!! WHAT that is unheard of. I already paid for the seeds, water, and miracle grow. Next he will be taxing us for SUN LIGHT!!!

MJ your homework is to find out how many Thermo Cams we could buy with NINE TRILLION DOLLARS!!! Democrat or Republican I dont care who is in Office, They have both bankrupted our social security. But who really spends more? You want to trust the "ONE" who goes over seas and says the US is to blame for all the worlds problems, who basically got elected on the fact that Bush gave us a 7 BILLION Dollar deficit. I not a math major but I do believe a TRILLION is more that a BILLION.

Christel maybe they'll give you credits for a second language, because Im going to need you to translate that for me. LOL
