SAT Part I
I took the SAT on Saturday morning, and this will sound crazy, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected. By no means am I saying I managed to get a perfect score, or even a good score for that matter. All I’m saying is that this five-hour test turned out to sound more treacherous than it actually was. And I think part of that was the fact that I had taken this horrible SAT prep course at the Kaplan Center. It was every Saturday and Sunday, so I pretty much dreaded. Just think, waking up early every single day of your weekend, driving to Iowa City, and learning. We do enough of that Monday-Friday, and we definitely don’t need anymore of that on the weekends. I was furious with my parents when I found out that they had signed me up for it. They invested a lot of time and money into this course, and me being the magnificently lazy person that I tend to be, did not take the course seriously whatsoever. We would take practice tests of Saturdays that would start at 10:30 and end at 2:30 and they were horrible. I would give up halfway through the test and end up with horrible scores. However, on the last practice test, I went in with the mindset that I would not give up and that I would be focused on the test the whole time, and I did significantly better
I am a total "people person". I can be quite shy at first, but once you get to know me, I won't shut up. I'm loud, crazy, energetic and passionate. I wish I had more confidence and self-esteem, I hardly ever feel beautiful. I love my friends and laughing. I never take anything too seriously. I fear rejection and the death of my loved ones. I fear that life is too short, and that I will miss out on the wonderful things life has to offer. Music makes me feel alive and Sum 41 is the best. I'm a complete romantic, and am a huge sucker for a romantic movie or show. I love Show Choir with all my heart, and couldn't imagine my life without it.
