SAT Tips and Tricks

The SATs are one of the most important tests you'll ever take in your life. Well, that's how they seem. This one test seems to have the ability to determine which college we go to and our success in the future. I am not a genius nor and I ever going to get that coveted 2400 but I do know some tips and tricks that I think will help!

My #1 advice would be to take practice tests. Practice, practice, and practice. You can never practice enough. The SAT is always in the same format. The questions are all essentially the same. Practicing will allow you to familiarize yourself with the test and everything on it.

I would also suggest investing in Collegeboard's SAT Study Guide! It comes with 10 different practice tests. Since Collegeboard creates the test you will be guaranteed relevant information.

For the essay I would suggest 1.5 to 2 pages of writing. The intro only has to be 2-3 sentences. Just get to the point! The body paragraphs should b filled with relevant and supporting information. If you run out of time, make sure you write at least 1-2 sentences for the conclusion. Use strong vocabulary and strong arguments and this should guarantee you at least a 5.

Also, Princeton Review's Grammar Smart is AMAZING! It is filled with grammar rules and tips! It is a must buy for all test takers.

Summer To Do's

This summer has been busier than the last. Last year at this time I expected to be finished with the tedious college process by now. I wanted to finish ALL my applications and tests. However, it did not work out that way for me.

Let's see a list of things I STILL have to do.
  1. Score above a 32 on my ACTs
  2. Score above a 2200 on my SATs
  3. Finish my summer reading (I still have two books, reading questions and an essay left)
  4. College Essay
  5. College Supplements
  6. DRIVE [I have no clue how I am going to pass my drivers exam]
Comment below with things you have still yet to do!

If you're anything like me, you probably have been scouring the earth to try to stay organized in a cute and fashionable way. Recently I have been looking up some cute DIY organization ideas for a planner for school
Cute Planner Idea

I love the idea above. The only problem I have with it is that I am lazy at times. Drawing a new one every week would prove to be too much for me.

So I recently started a list book. I found a unused little spiral notebook in which I have been making lists.
Cute List Ideas
I was inspired when I saw listography books on Tumblr. They are basically books filled with pages instructing you to come up with lists. I thought it was the cutest thing, however, instead of spending money on these books, why not make my own? So that's exactly what I did. I am sure all of you  have a spare notebook laying around. Fill it up with lists of your own!
Have fun! and comment below with your thoughts and comments :D I would love to hear about your ideas for lists!

Clean Slate?

I have been told so many times that I worry too much. I realize this is true but I can't help it. I always like to think about my future whether it invokes happy or sad emotions.

Recently I have been thinking about college. This time next year I will be blogging from my college dorm room. This to me is both exciting and scary. Ever since I was little the thought of going to college was thrilling and I couldn't wait to leave. Now that its this close I am terrified. I have made so many great friends that I can't bear the thought of leaving behind.

Also, there is this guy. I have been with him for about a year now. It's been one crazy ride. More ups than downs which makes it ultimately worth it. We shall call him ☆. I have very conflicted feelings about this. On one hand it may be better to go into college with a clean slate. On the other... What if I can't find another guy like him?

Anyways, I still have a while before actually leaving for college!

Summer Reading [& a tiny little rant]

So I've finally decided to start my summer reading which is a GREAT idea that I should have thought of months ago. Oh wait! I did think of it, but you know what this thing called procrastination got in the way. So now here I am with a month left of summer and I have well ALOT of work to do. Not only do I have 3 books to read and an essay to write. I have to memorize a map of europe. Oh and get this my parents expect me to ace this upcoming act. However since my dad is Asian he thinks the best approach is to tell me how he truly believes I will fail and do even worse than my first time. It's really absurd. The man is absolutely
positively INSANE and oh so annoying.

[the picture is of the book I am currenly attempting to read]

hi :)

So I am starting a blog. I'm not a spectacular writer nor do I lead an "interesting" life but you know what I'm gonna blog about it anyways. In life some things you just gotta do for yourself. Feel free to follow me or just check in when you are really bored.

So the real true reason that I am now blogging is because of two reasons.
1. My instagram stopped working and people on tumblr don't seem to appreciate my I guess I'll just have to share them with you.
2. I keep a diary however I feel stupid while writing in it. It's like I am talking to no one... well I mean that's ultimately what Im doing right now but i'm hoping someone will one across my page and read this.

Feel free to comment but please be nice... that would be much preferred

hehe look it's my Teddy Bear that I got for Valentines Day last year :) I love it sososososo super much :D
