Hi Anita , Bad News and Good News !
Bad News My landlords lawyer gave me a final warning notice 6/21 today .Planning to put my furniture in storage next month August , then start my apartment search . In the letter he mentioned him stopping by weekly to smell my apartment. I’m not letting him in . So if he does evict me my funiture is already out .I am working on quitting daily . I don’t want weed to destroy everything I worked hard for . Consequences for my actions .
Good News I have my science test scheduled for July 23 @8:30am . I been studying daily and taking practice test through the Ged website. The only issue I might have with the science test is the math portion which is Using numbers and Graphics in science. I took the science test July 2021 and failed with a score of 143, the minimum passing score is 145 . 2 points away from passing !
Otherwise I still work a full time job M-F which I’m proud of and my son is going to the 2nd grade starting September. So a few things are going good and others are not .

Regarding the bad news, it crossed my mind this morning that maybe a landlord who hassles a tenant and/ or threatens to evict a tenant for smoking anything is infringing on the tenant’s rights, so I looked at nolo. com/ tenants rights to smoke cigarette or marijuana, and it reads: “Tenants don’t have a universal right to smoke in their rentals. There is no law, either state or federal, that provides people with the freedom to smoke when and where they want“.
More: “Using and possessing marijuana for any purpose (including medical reasons) is illegal under federal law. As far as state law, depends on the sate: “To find out what the law is in your area, do an Internet search for ‘anti-smoking laws’ or ‘smoking ban’ where you live”. Also: “Although landlords who manage properties subject to laws that limit or prohibit smoking should attempt to inform tenants of the rules, it’s the tenant’s responsibility to be aware of and comply with the law“.
Here is good advice (in regard to your next rental): “If you plan to smoke in your unit, it’s best to find out the smoking policies before you sign a lease or rental agreement. If a landlord tells you that you’ll be able to smoke in your unit, make sure you get that statement in writing. Otherwise, don’t enter into a lease or rental agreement knowing that you’re going to violate the no-smoking rule. Hold out for a rental that meets your needs—the risk of legal hassles or even eviction just isn’t worth it”.
Good planning: to store your furniture next month, to start your apartment search and to take steps toward quitting marijuana smoking. You are a responsible woman and mother!
Good work studying for the science test, taking the practice test every day, and planning to take the test tomorrow morning. All you need is 2 points more than what you got last time. Keep yourself as calm and as confident as you can be during the test. You can make it happen!
“Otherwise I still work a full time job M-F which I’m proud of and my son is going to the 2nd grade starting September. So a few things are going good and others are not“- focus on the good (and do what we can about the rest). I am proud of you for working full time Mon-Friday and for being a good mother to your soon to be second grader!

I’m the bad guy in this smoking situation. It’s not a easy habit to walk away from . I couldn’t find a way to upload a picture in the text so I changed my Profile Picture. Check it out !July 23, 2022 at 8:17 am #404500
It says 152 on the science test.. (145 is the minimum passing grade): does this mean you already took the test this morning and received the results, and you passed? (I want to make sure before I congratulate you)

Yes ! Yes ! Yes !July 23, 2022 at 8:46 am #404502
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S,
You passed the test, what excellent news, I am thrilled !!!

Math is last . The study material says it’ll cover arithmetic and math concepts, measurements, equations , and applying math concepts to solve real-life problems.July 23, 2022 at 10:20 am #404506
Sorry about the above posts awaiting moderation. I copied from an online source in regard to what your math test includes and it triggered the awaiting-moderation feature. I ended that post with .. how exciting. Math can be exciting, you know!
anitaJuly 23, 2022 at 10:34 am #404507
I sure hope math can be exciting , I took a quick look at the study material and logged off .July 23, 2022 at 10:40 am #404508
Like I said, maybe I can help with the math, just a bit…. so let me know. In regard to the science portion, I am still thrilled that you passed!!!

Arithmetic: the traditional operations on numbers: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (<span class=”mwe-math-element”>), </span>division ( <span class=”mwe-math-element”></span> or /)… percentages (%), exponentiation (X<sup>2</sup>), extraction of roots (<span class=”mwe-math-element”>), fractions (can’t get an image of it), decimals (0.5), ratios (1 : 2), and more.</span>
Math concepts, one of many math concepts is the concept of equality (=), when one thing is mathematically the same as another.
Measurements: measuring the size or amount of something. In the metric system of measurement, length is measured in meters (millimeters…. kilometers), mass is measured in grams (milligrams… kilograms), and temperature is measured in degrees Celsius.
Equations: here’s a very simple one 2X=10. Solving the equation: divide each side of the equation by 2, and the solution: X=5.
<b>Applying math concepts to solve real-life problems</b>: it’s done when counting change in the market, when measuring the length and width of a space (in your new apartment, let’s say) to see if your existing sofa will fit into it, and so much more.

I took a math pretest today 7/23 I scored 139 .
As of right now, I dont have any specific questions about math . The Ged.com website has Geometry at the top of my study list. So thats where I’m starting .July 23, 2022 at 7:55 pm #404513
Starting with geometry: points, lines, planes; angles, triangles, squares, rectangles, circles, and so much more. I remember being excited studying geometry, figuring out the angles of triangles comes to mind. I think it’s night time now, where you are. Have a restful night, you deserve it.
