Eh, I wanted a 36, but a 35 is still really good. I might take it again to get my writing score up, but I'm perfectly fine with where I stand.

/hails

What did you do to get such a good score? How did you even finish it?

Nicely done! Hmm, do you have to get all 36's to get a 36 or do they just round it somehow?

It's an average. I think Z missed the 36 because of science. So much irony.

Yeah, they average it, so I actually got a 35.25, a quarter point from a 36. I was probably too confident on the science section because that was the only one I got a 36 in last time.

I had a band competition the same day, so any nervousness I could possibly have was taken by the band competition. I was basically thinking, "Let's get this test done right, then worry about band." The ACT was the smaller hurdle.

Ha, I remember exactly what I was doing at 11:11 CST. I was in English class... and my teacher was taking a picture of everyone because it was Scarlet Letter Day. I think I only noticed the time because I was facing the clock. And because one of the classes across the hallway suddenly started yelling.
I was standing by a fountain. No joke. Like y'know, those wish fountains? Threw a coin in. Asked the girl next to me out [set that up beforehand, obviously].

I did miss straight 36's on Princeton Review's practice over the math section... :?

:| Darn you genius people. I studied for around a month for the ACT and only got a 32 (should've been 33 but I panicked on the science section), and a 32 is quite good to begin with.

Edit: I forget how much language is censored here XD

You should have acted; they're already here.

But no one wanted to believe... Believe they even existed.
And when the truth finally dawns, it dawns in plasma!
But! there's one they fear. In their tongue he is Locutus: Picard!
