sometimes i fear that the rare compliments i get are only given to me because people know my self esteem ain't all that great. i fear that the things they say aren't true.

anyway, this song is so good idek. i'm not even a ballad person but i am a xiah stan 4 lyfe so i'm sitting here like iasjdijasidjaiosjd and sobbing LOL. ugh i love him.

i miss dbsk. and shinee.

....and i'll make a real entry sooner or later. probably later rather than sooner. lol shutting up now.

i'm bored so....i'm gonna talk about college/ACT scores!

I GOT A 25! YAYYYYYYY (note that i'm really late in telling you guys this - i took the ACT back in april/may).
the highest possible score is a 36, so obviously, i didn't do an amazing job, but i didn't do terribly either. i guess i'm in the above average range, since the national average is a 19 (eek!). i took the ACT my sophomore year, and i got a 23, and my goal was to get a 26 the second time, so i believe i did pretty good. i took the ACT a 3rd time in june to see if i could get a higher score, and i got a 23. :[ oh well.

specific scores:
composite score: 25 - 82% (rank)
english: 28 (YAY! this means i can skip to english 102 at UIC if i get in) - 90% (rank)
usage/mechanics: 15 (out of possible 18)
rhetorical skills: 14 (out of possible 14)
mathematics: 23 (ehhh. i guess this is decent. better than the first time where i got a 19.) - 69% (rank) :[[[[
pre-algebra: 12 (don't know total possible points)
algebra/coordinate geometry: 10
plane geometry/trigonometry: 13 (obviously, trig is my strong point!)
reading: 28 (yay again!) - 87% (rank)
social studies/sciences: 15
arts/literature: 14
science: 21 (EVIL. EEEEEVIL. the graphs were freakin' confusing! i think i even dozed off in the middle of this section. i am jealous of those who got a 27 [aka my best friend]) - 58% (rank) :[[[[[

combined english/writing: 26 - 81% (rank)
writing: 8 (out of 12 points)

I'M SO MAD ABOUT THE WRITING PART. gahhhh. on my 3rd ACT where i got a lower composite score, i got a 12 out of 12 and a 99% rank in writing! WHY OH WHY DIDN'T THAT HAPPEN ON MY BETTER TEST?! :[

i feel like i've done nothing today, although i've actually done quite a bit. i woke up at 11:15 - super late for me, so i guess that's why i feel the way i do. anyway, i have:

1) finished my personal statement for UIC/U of I
2) cleaned the bathroom
3) brushed mickey (my dog)

...and that's it. okay. now that i have written out a list, and it's so small, i feel useless. i guess i'll go fold some laundry after this.

i've been seriously in a harry potter mood lately (note the icon, haha) - i've watched all the movies, i'm about to re-read the series....i guess i'm in a withdrawal since it's the end of the series. *tear*

last wednesday, i had senior photos. it went really well. i brought my camera and my clarinet as props. the 1st photographer was really fun! and i even

so good.

the little reunion with my day care friends went VERY well. i was expecting K to be all stuck up and stuff since she lives in Glen Ellyn (SUPER rich suburb) and the last time i saw her at her 13th birthday party, she didn't seem to want to talk to me. but she was really nice, and we have a lot in common (we both play the clarinet). B was really cool and funny (and not a bully like she was when we were 3, haha), and she loves to watch boondocks and teen girl squad. i'm a year older than B and K, so they were all aksing me about driving and how my sophomore year was. we all exchanged information, and hopefully we'll keep in touch. :]

marianne (the day care giver) was SO happy to see us, and i think she was crying happy tears! :] she has a BEAUTIFUL house.

p.s. i used the first letter of their names, 'cause i'm not sure if they want their names all over the internets. :P

p.p.s. NOOO SCHOOL STARTS TUESDAYYYYYYY :[ please pray for me a lot this school year. junior year = TOO MUCH STRESS.

i think i'll start updating this more.
and commenting on there's ljs more! :]
....i guess i'm back, but i'm not sure. i said that i few months ago, and i haven't really updated since.

in a few entries back, i said that i had gotten a job at a portrait studio...but that fell through. :[ now i'm job hunting. so far i've applied to 14 places, and i've gotten no calls back. this sucks. 'cause i really want a new camera/ipod/other things. :/ please pray that i get a job!
