Election Day

Oh, what a beautiful morning, to be at home, sleeping in, relaxing the staff-development day away.

Well, kind of. I started my day by taking an entire SAT practice test, after all. Well, minus the essay. And I cut all of the sections short because I still had time to spare checking over my work, so it wasn't the full mind-numbing three hours. And I kind of skipped the essay section because Mom made me leave in the middle of it to go fold laundry, and I wasn't sure how much time I should get after that.

Even so, I was over seven hundred on all the sections (unless I got under a 5/12 on the writing, which seems unlikely). These tests must be easier than the actual thing, right? I mean, how the hell can I have a baseline test over 2200? It just doesn't make sense. I mean, I knew I tested well, but I hadn't realized that it was quite that well.

I suppose I'm just going to have to inflate my ego a bit more. Does anyone have a bicycle pump with a nozzle that would fit in my ear? I think my head needs to get a bit bigger.

How on earth do you not believe yourself that you got the score you did? Remember, the test was made to be hard-ish for the average student, so needless to say it's ridiculously easy for people like us, even with all the tricks ETS puts in.

Benny got a 2200 on his SATS. Therefore, you will get better than 2200 on the SATS, which means that your practice test scores should be about 2200. Obviously. Yay logic!!

@Julie: what's an ETS?

@Jackie: haha, I suppose so.

I have no idea what an ETS is, but my SAT II prep book seems to think it's another name for whoever writes the tests.

ETS = evil testing service, actually educational testing service but whatever...

evil is much more fitting.
