How to get an 800 on the World History SAT

You should probably click and view those babies large, though you probably can’t read my handwriting anyway.  Oh, and those ugly brown splotches don’t actually exist.  They are a figment of your imagination.  Or rather, they are a figment of my scanner’s imagination.  Stupid printer/scanner/deluxe electronic device.

While I was storing away my Government papers, I found my two binders of artwork from when I was 4-10 years old.  Let me tell you, I haven’t improved much.  I’d scan some but I’m worried about what the pastels would do to my scanner.  Allow me to describe: lots of cats and bunnies.

Then I found a notebook containing much more recent miscellany, including lots of reporter’s notes from freshman year, when I actually wrote Tattler articles every month; that timeline of world history, sans US, from 8000 BCE to the 1990s; tons more review notes and practice tests for the World History SAT II; very minimal review notes and practice tests for the Math SAT II; theory notes from Luzerne (yay 7th chords); and probably the first written evidence of my late-blooming college search, consisting of a list of 16 schools sorted into safety/match/reach.  (Three of them made it onto my final list, in case you were wondering.)

And now, for all you who suffered through the AP Calc midterm, here is something I found after the AP last year that will warm the cockles of your heart… or just make you groan.

Aaaaaaaand it’s stuck in your head now.  Don’t lie.

    Another small step on my way to internet domination…

    You really don’t know how relative that video is… So much so it kinda hurts…

    Wow, not relative, relevant. See, permanent damage is already beginning to show.

    I didn’t mean for watching it to be a painful experience. Midterm didn’t go so well I gather?

    so bad
    …. but so good ….
    I actually used differentiation of the choices to answer around 40% of the multiple choice… and hey, I got all the ones I answered right 😀

    Readers, she lies! You do not need to do… THAT… to get an 800 on the World History SAT. I didn’t.

    Amy: I like your email address. You should make it permanent.
