RC and a sad (funny?) story

Postby HellOnHeels » Sun Nov 13, 2011 6:25 pm

I was doing a RC section, and I told my husband - No asking me questions, no talking, no distractions. I did the first article, then the second article, and was working on the third when he decided to change the lightbulbs in our living room and the cornbread muffins finished and I just haaaad to try one. He went back on his merry way, and I finished up with the 4th.

1 -0 :D
2 -1 :)
3 -7 :evil:
4 -0 8)

Now, we've got football on tv, I've got a cat running back and forth, and he was cooking in the kitchen, so it's not like I'm distraction free. I told him he was bad for my studying :wink:

If you train yourself to need complete silence, there's a good chance you'll be screwed on the real test. Practice with noise and distractions of varying kinds until nothing bothers you. A muffin and someone changing a lightbulb should NOT cause a -7.

I thought maybe someone else with a SO or roommates could commiserate w/ the distractions. Sorry. I didn't realize all new threads must be approved by you first.

It's more of being asked direct questions and comments that throws me off. I'm pretty good at blocking out background noises, and after reading some of the horror stories of people having others coughing up lungs behind them at the test, I don't think I'd ever want to get used to complete silence. Hence, the football game on in the background :)
