via helloworldsmilei finally took the SAT today and after browsing www.collegeconfidential.com, i know i definitely got at least 4 math questions wrong, but oh well. it just feels soooo good getting that over with, at least for the time being. and the kids that comment on that website are crazy. one guy's like "i got 3 wrong. fml." D: wha??
after a firey talk with my mom, i've decided not to stress about trying to get into some fancy schmancy college. i'm just going to do my best as always and choose where to go according to what happens, instead of choosing where i want to go first and molding my dreams around that, if y'know what i mean. (ie i'll go to a college that fits the score that i get even if it's not superb. ie i probably won't make it to my dream school)
in the bottom of my heart, i still have a smoldering vision to go to yale; i have no idea why. but i am sure that whatever happens will happen for the best. :)
as i was browsing the web to find more tips for the SATs, I stumbled upon some SAT Critical Reading advice which made me laugh out loud, and changed my perspective about how I should view the SATs (even though the ETS is a bunch of tricksters, I still have to love them):
"This is a good point right now to tell you that you MUST love the passage you are reading. Force yourself to love it - throw yourself into the passage with gusto. It works. Though it's quite ludicrous to be super-enthusiastic about a boy and his alfalfa patch, with your enthusiasm comes retention, heightened focus, and an oddly vicarious interest in the passage."
"Only if you really know the words will you be able to confidently answer sentence completions (and consummately schmooze at cocktail parties)."
The alfalfa patch part made me laugh out loud. I love this guy.
now for some random pictures and links that I encountered from browsing other blogs (mainly from Everything Fabulous & A Cup of Jo)!
a little bit of improv in antwerp belgium. (I wish this happened everyday!!)
the postcard goes green (awessommee!!)
new song discovery (i'm likin' the beat)
thirst for travel (sometimes I wish I was Rick Steves, or Samantha Brown)
a happily ever after wedding (the colors are so enchanting!)
woman of 21 accents (crazyy!!)
i love bicycles (unfortunately, i dont have one at the moment; i just ride my rickety scooter to get the mail once in while)
have a wonderful sunday! :)
