About This Blog
A blog about my life, universe, etc. At any given time you might find something endlessly interesting or just me ruminating on something else, which no one (not even myself) finds interesting. That's the way blogs go, I suppose. Anyway, I was eleventh in line, and you weren't. Hah!

About My Family
My mom is a
lawyer in Pickerington; my stepdad and dad are computer guys, and my stepmom (who works with my dad) is an engineer. My sisters are, in order of age, a photographer, an artist, and a person too young to have her own website. My brothers are, in order of age, living up north, and again, a person too young to have a website. At some point soon I'll be collecting links for my aunts, uncle, and cousins. ^_^

Well, it's a start...  
I took one of my mom's computerized LSAT practice tests just now. All I can say is... heh.

Okay, fine, I can say more than that.

The score I got, according to the computer, was 153. This is not as good as I'd hope for, though to put it in some perspective I can recall that the first time I took a practice SAT I got an 1150 score (my eventual score was 1380.) Also, it'd qualify me for a 50% scholarship at my mom's law school. Still, I need to raise that by about 15 points before the end of September.

The -- how shall I put it -- greatest area of "opportunity" is, unsurprisingly, the Games section. I had to flat-out guess on two of the questions (always a terrible sign) and got just 45% of the questions right. For comparison's sake, I got 64% of the Reading Comprehension questions right, and 71% of the Arguments section right. I had a feeling the Games section would be the worst, since I'm not much good at the logic games in puzzle books.

My eventual goal is to get 85% or more of the questions right on the practice exams (that works out to a score around 170, I believe.) I figure I'll have to put in at least 10-15 hours of work to raise my practice score by 1-3 points (I figure it's something like five hours per point, but it probably won't work out quite like that) and I have a little less than 2,000 total hours between right now and the start of the test (that translates into a more convenient 'nearly 11 weeks,' by the way.) Anyway, since my goal is to gain 17 points, I figure an hour or two a day for the next, you know, 82 days, will be more than sufficient. I can probably even take Sundays off. I suspect I'll try another practice test every week or so; expect boring analysis like this every five to ten days, therefore.

Bleh. 153.
