What Happens When a 35-Year-Old Takes the SAT
A little sampler for you:
• BEGIN WRITING YOUR ESSAY ON PAGE 2 OF THE ANSWER SHEET.
Jesus. Chill the fuck out. It’s as if the entire test had been conceived of and written by the SS. Would it kill them to have a bit of levity in the copy? Perhaps a bit of gentle reassurance? “Look, we know this is stressful for you. Just hang with us and you’ll get to go to Dairy Queen afterwards.”
This is a little off-topic for Yeah Write, since we try to focus this blog on creative writing as opposed to essay writing for school assignments (you guys’d be amazed at how many message we get saying something like “I have to write a paper about Freud’s vs. Kinsey’s views on bestiality” and I’m like “Sorry…”) (also sorry for that analogy but I actually am writing a paper on a somewhat similar topic right now ha). ANYWAY. But I actually just generally like the writing in this article. It’s clever, and sort of, how can I put it… over-the-top without being too over-the-top. And I think it’s probably relevant for a lot of you followers.
I took the SAT twice and yeah, it SUX with a capital balls. I will
brag say though that I got an 800 on the writing part, which is my sole credential giving me the authority to run a blog called Yeah Write ;P
