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?! :[

hey everyone! how are you?

well, the ACT/PSAEs were decent. i' planning on taking the ACT again in june, just to see if i can get a higher score.

today, in enviro sci, one of my classmates , M was singing a song by gym class heroes, and my lab partner E, said to M,

E: do you know who originally sang that part of the song?
M: ....no.
E: it's by _________ (i don't remember the name of the band). so don't sing the song if you don't know who it's by originally.

i mean COME ON. i wish all these indie kids would stop being so pretentious. just because you know "obscure" bands, doesn't mean that other people who have never heard of them should be put down. dang. *sigh*

yeah. well...there's nothing else to say.

i'm just really ready for school to be over. there's....*looks at calendar* 45 days left. then...I'LL BE A SENIORRRRR.

p.s. i think my senioritis is kicking in a few months early - i feel super lazy.
