I Passed!

I went to take the high school proficiency test today and I passed! I get to go on the district wide interview now. They will call when they schedule interviews. That could be a little or a long time. Anyway I am quite happy about that. I have always had dreams where I don't graduate from high school because I never felt like I was up to snuff on all my subjects.

I invited an old friend named Ken over tonight for dinner. I haven't seen him in 5 years. He ran into another friend of mine at a Sears and so I decided to try to call him. He was happy to hear from me. I am about to make the tamale pie. I might make a salad too.

Friday night I will sleep over at my friend's house and we will wake up early and go downtown to a homebuying class. I cannot currently buy property due to debts and (more importantly) lack of substantial income. I am working on those though.

I might have some people over for Thanksgiving day. My Mom is going to Seattle for the holiday.

I might go thrift shopping on Sunday if i can scrape together some money. My friend invited me again.

I was turned down for the building I had applied to live in. They didn't say why though. I guess I must stay put for a little longer.

I wrote a new poem.

Ironing a dead man's shirt
the last one he will ever wear
my last act of kindness
done with loving care.

Even in death we shall not part
even though my love comes
from a broken heart.

I shall prevail over the memories
of his negative qualities.
I will remember
all of his fabulous stories
and try to forget the absence of warmth
from a man who knew not
how to speak to me.
