Got some SAT?

     If you think that your school tests are tough it is because you haven’t taken an SAT. Today, I made myself present to the nearest city test center, EIS, to perform my SAT Reasoning Test. I merely prepared myself for the challenge, because of many school assignments, projects, and other commitments. But apparently 20 hours of study were enough to encourage me to face the test.

      As I have proposed to myself to achieve a better education, I have as a goal to studying abroad, specificly in the United States. In order to obtain this, I have to do an excellent job in a standardized test for college admission.  I remember studying like for two hours per day for six weeks in a row; I understood everything and felt that I had mastered SAT.  But as the bimester in school was about to be finished, so much homework didn´t give me time to study for my test. As a result, I completely neglected my primordial goal.

Theater Night

  How wonderful is to presence one of your favorites stories in a play! Last Friday night, all high school attended the theater, José Francisco Saybe, to witness one of the best plays ever. For my surprise, the play was about one of my favorite stories since I was young. The play was originally titled “El Milagro de Ana Sullivan” which is about the incredible biography of Helen Keller.         
       To begin with, Helen Keller, as many people would know, was a child who, at the age of 19 months, lost her hearing and vision caused by a high fever and who, against overwhelming odds and with a great deal of persistence, grew into a highly intelligent and sensitive woman who wrote, spoke, and labored incessantly for the betterment of others.  Helen Keller is a real example for people that believe they have no purpose in life because of a handicap.
