CBEST done

Yarg. Went to bed too late and woke up too early, but the test was decent. Highlights included me actually being able to get through most of the math and being stymied by an essay question that read, "Most people have ideas about how to improve the world. Write about an issue you would like to change society's views on and explain how this would improve things."

I had trouble thinking of anything that people didn't already agree on- who's pro-child labor anymore, for instance? First I started writing about banning dog racing- which had a line that said, "if we must race something, let it be horses. They're bigger and require a larger investment, so people will be less likely to abuse them. Also, they were bred for transportation. Dogs, by comparison, are fragile, vulnerable, and were not raised to run in circles."

Yeah, so that didn't really work out. I wound up coming up with, "Americans cannot claim to be tolerant while continuing to stigmatize, stereotype and discriminate against people that marry their relatives."

No, seriously. For two pages (handwritten). Afterwards, I told my Mom and she just stared at me. "What is wrong with you? Why didn't you just write about how they should pay teachers more?"

Hmm. Come to think of it, that would have been a good one.

Dad said he wasn't surprised. Me and my brilliant ideas.
