From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
It's Job Day at Merryweather High. Everybody takes a test with two hundred questions on it. Their answers are supposed to predict the careers they'll be best at.
Melinda is predicted to do well in "(a) forestry (b) firefighting (c) communications (d) mortuary science" (26.5).
Heather's results predict that she will do well as a nurse. Heather is completely excited and decides to be a candy striper (volunteer worker in a hospital) this summer. She can clearly see her path to nurse-hood before her.
Melinda doesn't even know what she'll be doing in the next few minutes.
First, she has to actually survive ninth grade. After that, maybe she'll be more career-minded.
