Fairview High School
Being unprepared for an important test is not a fun experience. When that important test is the standardized test that determines whether or not you'll be accepted by the college you want to attend, it's even less fun. However, due to certain circumstances, I stayed up until 2 AM on the night before I took the ACT for the first time.
When I signed up for the test, I had a mental picture of myself spending the night before studying math formulas and such before going to bed extra early, so I would be well rested on the day of the test. Well, I had accidentally managed to schedule my test on the morning after the North Jackson football game, and since I'm in the band, I had to go. I spent the majority of the night I had planned to use to study to sit in the stands instead.
As you probably already knew, the ballgame had to end sometime. But by the time we got back to Fairview's parking lot, it was 12 AM. I get off the bus and walk over to the car. My mom is waiting there. As I get in, she turns the key and it doesn't work. The car won't start. Of all the bad things that could happen, the car has picked that day to stop running. We check under the hood but have trouble determining what the problem is. Finally, someone offers to drive us home for the night.
By the time we get home, it's 1:30 AM. I go to my room and try to salvage what's left of the night of sleep. The next day, as I'm taking the test, I feel very sleepy but manage to somehow stay awake. I dreaded what the results of the test would be. When I finally recived my scores a few weeks later, I was amazed. I had made a 29 despite the lack of preperation. Iwas very happy.
I plan to retake the test soon, and this time, there's no ballgame, so it'll be easier to get some sleep. I want to see if I can beat the score I made last time, without preparing. Hopefully this time, I'll be completely prepared.
