It’s November. I’m knee deep in college applications and SAT schedules. My first crack at the SAT back in the beginning of October didn’t go off so great. Out of that 1600 scale I got a 1210 D:. Why me!!!? I wanted to score really high to impress the ultra-competitve schools I am currently applying to – without having to study or devoting anytime whatsoever. The most upsetting part about all this is that I don’t have another chance to take the reasoning test over. I actually missed the deadline for the November 7th SAT. Yeah that does mean I have the beginning of December to take it before all deadlines on January 1st but I never considered having to take SAT 2s – or SAT Subject Tests – in order to get into almost any school. It’s very disheartening T_T.

今晩はみんなちゃん!今日私はとても疲れていますよ!感覚のドラマを見ました。妹ちゃんと一緒に見ました。でも杉ドラマのリンクは壊れたなリンク。なぜ!!!!コーヒープリンスが見たいですよ。今、私はとても悲しいですよ。T_T

I’ve been watching lots of dramas with my little sister since break started. WAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIITTTTT!!!!! I didn’t mention that I got a “sorta” job! (For those who don’t know a “sorta” job is a job that isn’t really a job that doesn’t pay a lot and you have to work a lot of hours but hey at least your getting money from somewhere :D) I’m so happy I deposited my first check – of a sad $50 – into my bank account this afternoon. I feel so grown up my first job xD!!!! Well anyway this job is really an internship so it’s something I can put on a college application and all. I was sent over through the internship program to the public library near my house to serve 12 hours a week earning $100 every two week pay period. Not bad eh? Well sorry but it kinda is I get bored so quickly unless I have endless carts worth of books to sort.

Next week however I have to work 24 hours (which I hope is allowed) so that I can go on a youth retreat with my church during the first week of August. Don’t wanna be missing out on money haha. I’m kind of nervous about the retreat because the girls going in my church I heard from my sister are all kind of how do I put this rude. Ah chinchara! >.>

Speaking of college applications I’m going to college next year’s September!!! Hoorahhhh :D

I’m excited about that really, I’ve been dying to be free in my city and once I’m adult college starbucks type material I’ll get to do all that. What i heard today really made me happy – especially because I want so badly to get into Columbia University – if you’re coming from unrich parents ,such as myself, and are an A student most ivy league colleges will allow you to attend for no money at all!!! I’m happy xD. All I have to do is continue studying like I have been for the rest of the summer and pace myself so that I will do very well on the SATs so that I can get into the school of my dreams. It’s all I want God give me this T_T.

I also have a lot of other things to do for the next school year like starting my Ap Economics paper (still have not gotten that book >.>) and complete my senior folder that was due in June might I add and continue studying for Japanese so that I am up to par when I start my AP Japanese class too. It’s a lot to think about so I usually do just one at a time. The beginning of the summer I started with mostly Japanese because I enjoy it the most and I started this week working on SAT test prep – mostly the critical reading section so far – next comes the paper and senior folder and I’m all set to be a star student senior at Francis Lewis High School :D. (Sorry for the run-ons ^^’)

SAT

leave a comment »

Today I stayed at school an hour later for this PSAT seminar. When I took the PSAT last year I don’t think I did amazing, so I want to take it again this year to at least see where I stand and whether or notI will do well. I am a horrible test taker. T_T

So this program today called SAT solutions offers classes this spring for around $400 so I want to sign up as soon as possible before they run out of space. They only admit 12 students per class. However, I still think this thing is a bit of a ripoff considering it’s only 8 classes (at 3 hours each class), so that’s 24 hours for $400 making each class $16 and change – look at me trying to seem on top of things when we all know I whipped out the computer calculator xD

But I need it sadly so I can’t exactly protest. The woman, sorry I forgot her name, said that this course can raise our scores by 60-70 points with each section. That sounds like a guarantee so if it doesn’t work out I might possibly consider demanding my money back so I can buy something that I can actually hold (please no similes on how I will be able to hold that $400 knowledge in my mind just like a I would with a $400 gift).

I already have an SAT prep book from the Princeton Review. It also cost  a fortune and has around a thousand pages so I will definitely have some light reading until I reach college (laugh). I’m really tired – that is supposed to cover for my ridiculous and not so amusing humor – I’ve been studying for chemistry for half my life today (teenagers love to exaggerate) and I still have American History homework to do. I spent some time watching Sara Palin embarrass herself today during the debate. More on that later but that woman is just so completely ridiculous I just want to bury her in a hole. (I love how she completely fucked up on the achilles heel question and Biden just gave a little smirk when he began to answer his).

I think I’ve said enough. Night.
