...dang. Well, actually, that's a "Damn" moment, there.
...how the HELL can it take somebody twelve years
to get thier GED? It took me EXACTLY two months...probably would have taken the whole frickin' few hours the test took were it not for the fact that I took a prep course I did not need...'cept for the schollership, which wasn't that bad. But technically, I tested my way out of school with the first placement exam they stuck in front of me.
The GED, without going into specifics (which I am not legally allowed to do) IS NOT THAT HARD. Seriously. Like, lots of working with decimals and about five gazillion reading/comprehention type questions. You have to be IMMENCELY dence not to at least PASS the thing the first time.
