During standardized testing, the four seventh graders in Geometry were forced to take the PreAlgebra exam because they weren't allowed to take Geometry, and I believe that they took the Algebra test in 6th grade. One of those kids leaves tomorrow for D.C. for a math competition. I don't know which one, but if he wins, he'll meet Obama. I pity Obama.


National MathCounts is this weekend in DC...

To make it from California is VERY impressive, actually; some of the kids on that team are probably better than me.

Overly complex literature is completely headache inducing, while difficult chemistry/physics problems aren't for some reason.


Lol. Dropped out of AP Lit last week when I looked at some admissions material for my college and said, "Oh, wait, I can't get any more credits for taking AP Lit. Why am I doing this again?"


Dropped four tests for that reason haha.

Hey all,

This time of year tends to be very stressful for us students. In the heat of all the AP Tests, Finals, and SATs that are coming up in the following months, I'd like to remind everyone to simply enjoy life. No test is more important than spending time with the people you love. The score you get, the college you go to: these things mean nothing to these people because they love you for you, and not your class average or GPA. Though for some of us, it may seem like our parents expect nothing more than perfection, they don't. They'll be there for you as long as you are there with them. Your parents will always be proud of you. So study hard for these tests, but don't feel stressed.

If you are under a lot of stress, try taking a break. Maybe a walk in the park or some family time will clear your mind. Really. If you need someone to talk to, your friends, parents, and teachers are always there for you.

The point is, numbers on a paper mean nothing to the people who are close to you. I'm bad at making cheesy happy posts, but this is really coming from my heart. The past few days have really brought this up to light, in a sudden and difficult way.


So, good luck on your tests! Make sure to spend some time with your family :)

And that, to winneratlife, is the highest form of praise possible. :P

I just realized how awesome it would be if my thespian group all went to Disney World... Too bad I'd be forced to ride the Haunted Mansion... D: But even still, we'd have a blast! If only we could...

Well... so maybe I did have fun with the Lit exam today... There was some good literature on there. The only bad part was that I consistently fell behind with writing my essays, so I had to write really fast to catch up. My hand looked kind of beat up by the end of the FRQs.

I liked the prose passage better than the poetry, even though the poetry one was easier in my opinion. The multiple choice passages were surprisingly boring compared to the practice we were doing in class, though I guess that's all for the better, since that way I didn't end up distracted by actually reading them.

Language and Composition today was awesome. I made a Scioly, Harry Potter, LOTR, and Inheritance reference, as well as a reference to the Constitution without realizing it.
