It’d be a lie to say I wasn’t disappointed. I worked my butt off to understand the material. But alas, it didn’t suffice. I always wondered what it meant to be at the bottom and to finally be there…is kind of liberating. No more room for disappointments. No more gray areas of concern or worry because I’ve finally trickled down to the pit of those worries. I think this might be the catalyst I need to do something else. I want to find more of myself outside of this prison I built for myself. Maybe this is merely a gift in disguise. A destiny that needed to come.
"The SAT is a scam. It has been around for 50 years. It has never measured anything. And it continues to measure nothing. And the whole game is that everybody who does well on it, is so delighted by their good fortune that they don’t want to attack it. And they are the people in charge. Because of course, the way you get to be in charge is by having high test scores. So it’s this terrific kind of rolling scam that every so often, somebody sort of looks and says—well, you know, does it measure intelligence? No. Does it predict college grades? No. Does it tell you how much you learned in high school? No. Does it predict life happiness or life success in any measure? No. It’s measuring nothing."
Just want to change so much. And what better time than now.
