my days and evenings away here in the Still Lushly Green (from all of the rain) North Land.  Each time I take a practice exam, I am shocked and amazed at what all has seated itself in my noggin’ and what items of information seem to be sliding down the slippery slope and out my brain’s front door.  I can fully attest to the fact that I am studying, a lot.  On my desk, I keep a little saying printed on a juice cap from last year that says smarter, not harder

Today I am at our town’s main public library studying smart-er.  But it’s time for some scheduled fun and I am packing up my stuff to take a food break with my daughter.  I am hungry.  All of this learning works up quite an appetite ~ at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
