First off, I am incredibly sorry. My lack of posting is completely embarrassing and can only be blamed on myself. I promise I will make up for it and post regularly and not be a flake. I will. Be. Regular!
Next, the past 24 hours of my life have been insane! And therefore I must elaborate for all of you to understand just how crazy the life of a girl can be. Especially when the SAT in your schedule.
6 p.m. yesterday – To find a DJ for Prom (which I am on the committee for) I had to find a DJ. So, I went to a middle school dance with my friend to check out the DJ. Now, I remember in middle school dances were like the coolest thing ever. As a high schooler, watching a middle school dance makes you realize how awful they really were. But I got my DJ, the middle schoolers had fun, and I feel incredibly accomplished.
9 p.m. yesterday – Bed time for me! After a 40-minute yoga session, bed was a must. If you are planning on taking your SAT, definitely go to bed as soon as you can and get as much sleep as possible. It will definitely pay off in the long run.
5 a.m. today – Up and going! A shower, breakfast, and getting dressed fill the next hour. At six, it’s time to hit the road for the SAT test center an hour away. In the car, my mom and I had lots of fun singing along to the radio (we’re huge car singers) and waking up for my test.
8 a.m. today – Test time! Prepare for 5 hours of instructions, an essay, multiple-choice questions, and breaks too small to eat all of your granola bar. Emerging from the test, I felt like someone had taken my brain, played a few games of catch, and then returned it back to my head. While I feel like I did well on my SAT, I know that my brain will not be able to handle that many questions in close proximity for a while.
2 p.m. today – Lunch and a Starbucks. My mother is so amazing and knows exactly how to be a great mother. She does so much for me, and although I might not always be appreciative, she is the best mother anyone could want. I would not be half the person I am today without my mother there to help me find my way and teach me along the way.
3 p.m. today – West Side Story, sleep, and cuddling with my dog. What better way to recover from the brain drain of the SAT?
6 p.m. today – 24 hours later and I’m still in one piece. As the great Kelly Clarkson once said, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
What did you do in the last 24 hours?
