GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS!
I hope that the first closed weekend of the year is going better for you than it is for me. I was scheduled to take the ACt for hopefullly the last time this weekend, and everything was going gr9 until my test proctor was like "YO HOLD THE PHONE ARE YOU TRIPPIN RN GURL BC THAT CALCULATOR IS PROHIBITED AF!!!"
I was dismissed from that testing room faster than you can say ACT. I was furious. and upset. and confused because I had used this graphing calculator on virtually every single standardized test I have ever taken. I mean, maybe it was all for the better though. Now I can have more time to prepare, won't miss any college app deadlines (note: the first thing I did after angrily calling my mom to come pick me up from this stupid test was make sure that this wouldn't completely put a hole in my early decision applications, so we gud fam. Besides the fact from being too angry to even compose my thoughts in the moment, it was probably one of the most embarrassing things to ever happen to me. I mean, as I was leaving the room, all I got were pity glances everyone in the room oops. I mean, it's completely fine now and I'm totally over it, because I like to think that everything happens for a reason and that it was all supposed to turn out like this. So I guess I'll still be studying for the ACT for the next month and a half. oh well. Life happens. 5 years from now, I'll probably think this was the funniest thing ever, so it's fine. Also I'm sick as heck. So there is that.
So that was my general life update, BUT INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON ALL THE THINGS THAT WENT WRONG TODAY, LETS TALK ABOUT HOW GREAT EVERYTHING ELSE IS!!
For starters, have you guys all seen the 2015-2016 HOPE T-Shirt design that we released yesterday!!???!??!?!?
Props to Jess for making it look FIRE AF. be sure to bring back some ca$h m0n3y to pay for thi awesome FROCKET COMFORT COLOR TSHIRT. It's only $15 and it's super super cute!!
Note: If you guys are planning on volunteering for HOPE, though our blood drives or any other big events that we may have coming up during the school year, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUY A SHIRT so that we can look uniform and be easily distinguishable from a crowd (lol it took me like 4 tries before I spelled distinguishable correctly). #HOPESQUAD
Anyway, I hope you guys make the most of the rest of your closed weekend and spend time with family, friends, and eat lotsa good food before you come back to McConnell.
LAST NOTE I PROMISE: We will be having a volunteer GA this MONDAY in MAC at EIGHT to create care packages and cute crayon hearts for the local pediatric hospital!!
Take care and try not to get sick af!!
