    I get that way too... when I'm stressed/overwhelmed, I get pissy and snap at people. My children usually cause the feelings of being overwhelmed (non-stop requests for this or that while I'm trying to get dinner going, etc). I don't multitask very well and get overwhelmed easily. I always thought it was a symptom of my depression/anxiety.

    Perhaps. I always think it is a product of real life. YMMV but getting annoyed in overwhelming situations seems normal to me.

    I second (third?) that. I tend to get irritable and downright bitchy in overwhelming situations. If it's bad enough, it turns to fury.

    I tend to zone out, selective hearing so to speak. We all have to have a coping mechanism.

    Iowa doesn't have any testing requirements for graduation. Glad I didn't go to NY!

    Texas is king of standardized testing. High school is, for the most part, "here's how to pass this test. Take this test. Here's how to pass this test." It's no wonder that we do so abysmally compared to other states and countries in the real world: there's no test for which to be taught. We're lost.
    TAAS, ITBS, TAKS, AP, CLEP... we know 'em all.

    We do ITBS, but that's in elem and middle. I don't remember doing it in high school. In high school we had the ASVAB (military) and the ACT. SATS was available if you wanted to take it, but I chose not to.

    I don't remember the ASVAB. I took the SAT. When I was in school, it was the TAAS, but they changed the name to TAKS and apparently made it so you could pass it with a 6th grade education, not a 3rd grade education.
