so… a week ago (< indicates just how much i’ve been distracted this past week) i went to JIS to take my SATs.
in all honesty, i was really really nervous and i felt so cold even though i was wearing a knitted sweater and jeans. i knew that mom knows i’m nervous… and she kept on smoothing my hair and telling me to go to the toilet before i take the test, and so i pretended to not be nervous. i could literally feel my heartbeat on my chin. THAT’s how nervous i was.
so i walked in. and the school’s H-U-G-E. excuse me for exaggerating but the size of that school is simply not funny. it’s either because i’ve been stuck in a small school for practically my whole life or that the school is just plain big. but really, i can get lost in that school. i actually followed a group of people to the test center and i was like: “yeah, so finding the test center is actually easy” –and you know how i have this thing with Korean guys? well there were loads of them there and i started getting suspicious… little did i know, there are TWO test centers in that school. and the one that i went to was the wrong one since we’re assigned by our surnames, and the ‘Aslan’ test center were for the A-K surnames. explains why there were loads of Koreans there… all of them were ‘Kim’s. T.T
i literally ran to the other test center and again was fated to sit next to a Korean guy. (please don’t judge or think that i’m stereotyping… i’m just naturally attracted them. even when i try not to. >< /fail) and he was either really smart or really stupid. we were given 25 minutes to do each math sections and i swear that he was always done before the time was up. so it’s either he did all of the questions already, or that he couldn’t answer them and prefer to leave them blank (that’s how it goes with SAT. you better leave the question if you don’t know the answer). it would’ve been better to actually be seated next to someone who you see is doing the sections until the last minute. intimidation is not a good thing to have when you’re in that situation.
so i endured the 5 hour test with only 3 five minute breaks. my brain froze along with my hands once i was done and i was like ‘OMG! i did it!’. i might have to retake it though considering that i think i might not have done my best. and i’m nervous now because my test scores would be available 10 days from now. i’m scared. really… but the good thing is that it wasn’t as hard as i expected it to be. i took an online practice test and it was harder. ><
so that’s my account. i went to Burger King immediately after taking that test. when the brain freezes, burger is called for. the Whopper is the best xD really, good luck to all you test takers… and good luck as well for those who are waiting for their score. may all the luck be with you and with me too.
