My ear ache is gone and my hearing is back to normal again, so you can gather around and even speak into the right ear without shouting. My birthday was a rather busy but good day. I can't complain and I better not as that's the start of being a bickering old lady, right?
I have been so busy as of late.. this going-back-to-school-thing has me going nuts. GA and their silly rules... I have to present them with my German Education, proof that I have completed High School and attended college... Your transcripts then have to be translated and evaluated... keep in mind, that I have attended college here in the U.S. as well, but that does not count as of yet. Nobody could explain to me what exactly needs to be send for evaluation and each phone call was more frustrating then the one before... finally, Lewis and I decided to go directly to the Administration office and talk to a person there. Voila, we found Linda... a lady who actually is responsible for international students. She told me to not waste my money as GA declines those transcripts anyway. Great! Now what? "May I suggest something?" , the lovely Linda asked... So, yesterday, upon her suggestion, I went and took the GED test.. only days after sitting with Linda. This way, I save money and time and can jump right into my college classes (at least that was the thought). Today, I will pick up my results... I am not so sure about having passed... this all looked so darn foreign to me.... 7 hours of freakin' testing...
I hope you all are doing great... what's new with you? Catch me up!!! and hopefully, soon, i will find some time to sit with you all again for a bit longer than just a quick update.... Kisses on the cheek!!!!!!
