What is WRONG with me?! @ 08:23 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: embarrassed embarrassed

Okay, you see, my SAT is tomorrow and I have been practicing essay prompts with pathvain_aelien. I was originally going to use an example from The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck to support my thesis in today's essay, but then when I got to the paragraph I was going to talk about it in, I said "In The Good Earth..." and then talked about The Lord of the Flies by William Golding as if I were absolutely sure Buck and Golding made an agreement to switch their names and the names of their books. Good thing I noticed it before time ran out...

WHAT THE BEAT COPING GNAT WAS I THINKING?!?!

Anycattlenotingway, here's the obligatory quiz:

You are not really Geeky!

You may like a few things that are geeky, but overall you aren’t really much of a geek.


Oh yeah? Well, I know the last digit of pi! It's...uh...green.

Keep breathing? What does that have to do with anything?

And you wished me good luck after the SAT started. But fortunately, before it ended.

My timing's never been that good :-p

When I'm stressed, my breathing gets shallow and I can't think as well. If I can remember to breathe slowly and deeply, my brain gets more oxygen, I think better, and often start to feel less stressed too. When I'm really focused on something and concentrating, I actually hold my breath unconsciously and generally get a headache unless I remember to breathe.

Kinda weird, I know, but it seems to happen to other people too. In yoga class, the teachers are always reminding people to breathe because a lot of people tend to hold their breath while doing difficult poses.

I am sure. And it's over for another year anyway!
