*Grr*... Such People...

I would apologize for not posting anything for two weeks (even though there're at least fifteen new posts in my blog feed from the last week alone). I would even go as far to excuse myself by informing you of the SATs I've had to endure, but to be honest, they were just over the past two days, and I only studied on Monday. *cough*

So no, I'm not apologizing, nor am I making excuses, but I did have to bring up the SATs so this story will make sense.

The first two sections were over vocabulary and reading comprehension. Without too much difficulty, they were over and the teacher called a break, so like many others, I took the opportunity to use the restroom. And there I heard the most awful things.

Girl 1 - "Oh my gosh, I hate reading!"

Girl 2 - "Yeah, I know; I just read the questions and went back and found the answers."

Girl 1 - "I wish I thought of that! I had to read the whole thing."

Girl 3 - "I just skimmed and it was still torture."

After they left, I stormed out to wash my hands. A friend of mine looked over at me, grinned, and patiently stood by to wait out my rampage. I mean, seriously, who not only complains about reading, but has the audacity to hate it?

  1. Charli... Although I do agree with you... I LOVE to read and words are my greatest friends. (Side note: I also hate the way SAT's are set up because on the last two I've taken time makes it so that you CAN'T actually read and are forced to learn how to skim very efficiantly. Which is tortuous when the subject matter is interesting.) I just have to make the point that lovers of numbers would be saddened, if not angry, by the way I openly express my contempt of mathematics. So... I suppose the only 'hatred' for reading that can be justified as excusable should at least be sympathy for those who think in numbers and not words. Just a though. ;)

    1. Good point. I was thinking about adding in my hatred of math (which happened to be the next section on the test), but I probably got bored writing that thing^. Seriously, I need to figure out how to write more interesting posts... Anyway, it's surprising to me how many people think in numbers rather than words. To each his own brain process, I guess. :P

    2. I like your posts, and I think they are very interesting in their own right. Play around with them if you must, but no drastic changes or shall be very sad. :'( And yeah, I know, right? The people that shock me are the ones who can think fairly well in both numbers and words... My mom's one of those... Makes me so jealous!

  2. well......i must say i do hate the reading that SAT's give, but i still read all of it (only because if i dont then i have more trouble answering the questions) but the vocab is the worst =/ me no likey spelling. i dont mind Math though :D

  3. You took the SAT too? Cool! Okay, I will confess that I am guilty of reading the questions and then finding the answer in the passage... but seriously... 25 minutes‽‽‽ I am WAY too slow for that. I guess I'm one of those math people... :(

  4. I do like reading in my own time, though. :)


Comments! They make me melt a little. :)
