Insomniatic cupcakeholic

Because the scores for the March 2008 SAT Reasoning Test came out last night, I didn't sleep at all.Instead, I spent half the night baking coffee-flavored cupcakes with chocolate sour-cream frosting for my classmates. Surprisingly, I was too nervous in anticipation of the SAT exam results to eat one myself.

At 3:00am, I checked my College Board account:
Critical Reading: 800
Math: 740
Writing: 790
Total: 2330
I sighed in deep relief because 2330 makes me competitive for all of the schools that I'm interested in. For the rest of the night, I didn't sleep -- I studied and worked on fundraisers for the March of Dimes. I couldn't sleep -- it was as if the SAT score made me realize that jumping over one hurdle in life means the next hurdle is approaching soon.

In spite of my sleepless night, I pranced around school the next day in a pair of heels and a flouncy white dress, handing out cupcakes to anyone who needed a dose of sugar to kick-start his or her day. In fact, my friend, who is a fashion design major at California College of the Arts, came to visit today. "Turn around, dear," she said -- both critiquing and praising my outfit. I was amazed that I was still able to spin around in a pair of heels after not sleeping for over 24 hours.

After class, I called my hairstylist to schedule a haircut and perm appointment on Saturday. I figure I deserve a new hairstyle after relentlessly pushing myself as a perfectionist -- my harshest critic will always be myself.
