What tested you today? Testing. This is a test of my blog. We are bombarded with tests through life; there are six definitions in my dictionary for the noun test and several more for the verb. The outer layer of a clam is apparently also called a test. Every day we test ourselves, our students, they test us, the world tests our patience. We take blood tests and eye tests and other medical tests. Growing up, I took my fair share of standardized tests. There are tests during public television announcements; we test each other. Many of us have test anxiety which makes it all much more interesting. Every day is a test as we test our limits.
This blog entry is a test of my blog, which will eventually be an exploration of preparing for Grade 8 piano and Grade 7 practical voice exams and the theory exams in Canada. Along the way I will explore physics, mathematics, and literary excursions.
So what tests have you taken today? Are you sure you weren’t being tested?
