So this past Saturday, SATs were held here at the high school. I was one of many students from Red Lion signed up to take the test who felt absolutely prepared. I woke up that morning ready to start my day, I got dressed, ate a pop-tart, and had a glass of orange juice. I guess you could say my day was starting off pretty great.
Until I found out that someone stole my calculator the night before while I was at the football game. Yeah, that's right my calculator.
Now I know what you're thinking: "It's just a calculator, Clare" or "Is this girl seriously ranting about a stolen calculator?" But here's the thing, I SPECIFICALLY bought a FIFTY dollar calculator at the beginning of August for the SATs!
How would you feel if you woke up at seven in the morning, on a Saturday by the way, to go take a test you don't even want to take, and then breakdown in tears because one of the most important things needed to complete said test isn't there?
I know most of you wouldn't be all that happy, and if we're being honest, most of you guys would probably start freaking and be on the verge of an aneurysm. And to top it off, I forgot my photo ID, so I almost missed my test to go back home and grab it. I'm just grateful I got there in time and the teacher had an extra calculator.
So here's what I've gathered from this exhausting day:
