What I have been doing to slowly eek my way into preparation is by studying for the ASVAB. The ASVAB is sort of like a placement test. The higher you score, the more jobs you can choose from. Its simple enough that a kid in high school can ace it as long as he paid attention in his classes. I however, never did such a thing.
There are about 11 categories: Science, math basics, word problems, paragraph comprehension, algebra, geometry, electronics, auto, shop, mechanical and assembly.
The kids who go to technical school could easily ace it because they learn all that auto, shop, mechanical and assembly stuff, whereas I don’t know my ass from my elbow.
I’m up to paragraph comprehension in my studies, then I’ll only have 7 more subjects. I bought the 597 page ‘McGraw-Hill’s ASVAB’ study book. It came with a CD-ROM packed with practice tests. It was the most expensive ASVAB study book, so I figured it was the best. And I want to do my part in helping the economy.
I just ate some beaver chili and it made me run to the bathroom (see last post).
I think I have a cold. I keep blowing my nose. WTF.
I’m going to start studying for the ASVAB, but hopefully I’ll be back later tonight to write about how great of a hobby blogging is.
I know nobody is reading this blog. I’m actually a bit scared of logging into my wordpress account and seeing hits to my site. When I see there are no hits, I take a sigh of relief. I really don’t make much sense, do I?
