Lost in the Crowd

I've always known I don't stand out.
I don't have any defining features.
Nothing spectacular that would make people remember me.
I would HATE it if I did.
Never liked being the center of attention.
But, I was amused this week though when two people confessed they always get me confused with someone else, or two somebody else's.
Just something for me to dwell on incessantly.
Although I also got the reaction from a teenager that I "look 20!" upon them hearing my actual age *gasp*.
I had to laugh heartily at that one!

Wish Me Luck!

Tomorrow I take my first midterm for my nutrition course! I have studied like crazy and HOPEFULLY will do okay.
Well, alright, I'm really not okay with just "okay." I want to do GREAT!
I'll drop the kids off at school, do some last minute looking over notes and head on in!
Is it odd that I get a rush from taking tests?
Maybe I'm just meant to be a perpetual student after all!
And for my reward, you ask?
I think I'll go old school (literally) and buy myself some lovely Pee-Chee folders to keep myself organized!
