This... Is... JEOPARDY

I've always been somewhat of an "intellect." Not because I'm necessarily intelligent or smart-but because I've always enjoyed learning. Whether it was learning at school, learning through reading, or learning through observing; it has always been a pleasure of mine. It's only natural that I'm a trivia nut. Trivial Pursuit? Sign me up. Trivia night? I'm there. Any sort of game that's Q&A facts has my name written ALL OVER IT. Naturally, I'm a Jeopardy Junkie... and it's been a dream of mine to be on the show for a while now. So this year... I decided I'd register for the online test, and tonight's the night!! I'm excited-but also being very rational about it. I know that I may be very unlucky with the categories and questions. I know that 15 seconds to answer a question which may require a bit of memory recall is going to be rough, and I also realize that there are THOUSANDS of others that are also taking the test-and that even if by a miracle I did extremely well on the test, I may not get a call for an in-person interview due to how many people are trying to get on the show. You figure... 5 shows a week... 3 contestents per show (but only 2 NEW since one is a returning winner)... in a year-there are only ROUGHLY 500 contestents. My chances of getting on the show are so slim it's depressing. But it hasn't lessened my excitement to participate in the online test!!! So... here goes nothin!!! Perhaps I'll be one of the very lucky 500. Some one has to win, right????

There's really not too much to update. I can tell you that the test was INCREDIBLY tough. The time is going by so quickly. Next time I take the online test I am definitely going to sharpen up beforehand. It's so much to have your memory recall work that quickly. You need to think of an type the correct answer in 15 seconds! Before you know it the next question is up.
There are no results for the test. You don't find out how many you answered correctly or even a simple pass/fail.
The only way you'll ever find out is if you get a call one day to go on to the next testing level.
So-I'll just continue to take the online test every year and keep my brain sharp and fingers crossed!! Thanks for the interest in the experience!!
