Alright, I'm officially a retard and a slacker. And anyone who is reading this gets to find out why. I'm a senior in high school, and I never took the SAT or even PSAT tests. So this year, I signed up for SAT on November 4th (today), and also signed up for a SAT prep course for 150 dollars (both the test and the course fees came out of my mother's pocket). Well, I went to ONE of the 12 or so classes in the prep course, which means my mother can't get her $75 refund back for students who attend all of the classes.

And that's not all of it. Well, I'm obviously not out taking the SAT right now, as I'm sitting at home typing this. Well, I realized last night that I had no photo ID, which is required to take the test. You're supposed to get a physical description on school stationary signed by the principal if

you don't have photo ID. It was a little late for that.

It gets better. I lost the ticket that I'm supposed to present at the test center for admission. Since I don't have that, I can't reschedule the test for another date for even a small fee.. I have to register all over again, paying the full amount. Oh, and yes, there's even more. The deadline for signing up for the next test on December 12 is passed, and I have to pay a late fee to get in.

So, let's summarize: Didn't go to prep courses: slacker. No photo ID: retard. No phsyical description: slacker (never got around to getting one from school). Lost SAT ticket: retard.

I feel so good about myself right now.
