Standardized Acute Torture

Or something to that effect.

I'm done. Well, for now, at least, I'm done. It's rather difficult to believe. It feels as if I've passed some great milestone, as if I've crossed the line from being a girl to being a woman.

Wait, no- that was when I was twelve. Menstruation and examination are such similar words, it's difficult to keep track sometimes.

Even so, it does seem like I've gone somewhere. I've taken a meaningful step in the college process. Well, visiting Dartmouth was meaningful, all three times. And visiting Harvard was fun, even if it's downright impossible to get into. But this test, it's here to validate my ability to get into those schools. It's a rather scary thought. I mean, if I bomb this, could it make that difference? I'm not sure that it could- my GPA and everything else is high enough as it is- but you never know.

But I didn't bomb it. I can't have. I mean, I can't even remember the last test I truly bombed. We're talking about a girl who was disappointed to get a 93 on her physics midterm, for chrissake. I can do it. I probably did it. It might not be a 2400, but I'm sure it's amply sufficient.

Any more would be a superfluity.

Jackie said...

oh, and how do i change my name?

Nyx said...

nvm, i figured it out.

Nyx said...

i am highly disappointed that the name change is not retroactive. i conclude this after posting four meaningless posts on your blog. apologies. okay, the first one wasn't meaningless. GIRL V. SCHOOL is awesome. it sounds like a court case...can't wait to burn that analogy out of my head.

on the other hand (to post a fifth time) i could constantly change my name just to confuse people!

btw, that's actually a real word.

Tea said...

that is a truly awesome word.

Also, I made that subtitle about a month ago, fyi.

Gretchen said...

why'd you change your name??

Tea said...

I gave her jackie, and she never really liked it.

Gretchen said...

well just so you know jackie, PICK A NAME. i'm gonna have to switch them in the posts so i need to know which one you've decided on.

well? what are you waiting for? HURRY UP. :P

Tea said...

she picked nyx. I already changed all of my posts.

Nyx said...

you don't have to change it if it's a pain, i can just be like vicky/bruney, with two names, that hopefully won't confuse people. or, at least, it will be less confusing than everyone switching my name to nyx.
