Ah, I remember when...

My ex-boyfriend didn't bother calling me one night because of floods that he wouldn't be there.  When I asked him why, he said, "I knew you'd call later."  I remember his telling me he would be at my house.  When?  He said "when he got there."  The crap I took off this guy is amazing.  I can't believe I was that stupid to go out with this jerk.

I am extremely upset!

I followed the directions exactly how to upload the Word exam 3 files and as usual, the instructions were wrong.  I should have uploaded them all at once. How am I going to upload the other 2? I can't get an instructor until they email me back; I see no way of emailing instructors here.  Phone call didn't help.  What kind of school is this?! Now I will fail the course just because I cannot the other two necessary files? My day is ruined, I am crying, and I have to wait until tomorrow.  If there is not a solution to this, I am going right to the Better Business Bureau or I will take Penn Foster to court.  I am tired of the shoddy instructions and lousy lessons! When I finish my 2 courses, I never want to even hear the Penn Foster name again, and I sure will NOT recommend this scam to anyone else. I will not allow Penn Foster to ruin another day in my life!

Growing Up

Due to my father's employment, I didn't grow up  in one "hometown." I had the fortune to live in different cities in the United States. Pennsylvania, being one of them, is popular for its history.  One can go to Philadelphia to experience the nation's birthplace or one can go to Amish country to sample shoo fly or whoopie pies.  In Maryland, there are many places to enjoy the ocean while swimming, crabbing, or sailing.  Sample crab, lobster, oysters, or clams at Phillips Seafood or see a variety of sea life in the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Virginia is also famous for its fishing and seafood. One can visit the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, Busch Gardens at Williamsburg, or take a trip to the Pentagon. One can enjoy sports events at RFK Stadium.  In El Paso, Texas, we enjoyed a weekly, Sunday ride to Juarez to shop, listen to music, or visit the Rio Grande. It is a beautiful city, surrounded by desert, purple mountains, and wonderful hot weather.
