I was always a good kid and student but across the board I was an average Jane. I was smart but not top notch intelligence which is fine because I was happy with it. I was Average. Not only academically but also in my sports. I was in Softball since 2nd grade, Gymnastics since 2nd grade, and Soccer since 5th grade. I was Average. I love those sports so much and I am happy I was able to enjoy them. I managed to be in AP classes in high school but that never tipped the scale to above average. That was fine but I wanted to get into my college of choice Indiana University Bloomington. So this was the first time my academics being what they were was a problem. I applied to five schools and one by one they got back to me with acceptance letters except IU, I was still waiting and waiting for a decision from them. After contacting the school to see what the hold up was they told me that my SAT scores were as you can guess average. So they suggested I take them again and they would be able to give me an answer. Well I had already planned on taking them again and the ACTs as well. They also said that no one is accepted without taking the SATs twice. LIES. My brother and my four cousins had all gone to and graduated from IU and not one of them took the SATs twice. But I did what I had to do. I studied and studied and took those garbage standardized tests and what do you know? I got about the same on the SAT and an average score on the ACTs. But Thankfully IU deemed me worthy of acceptance. I am thankful for that acceptance because I will always cherish my four years at IU. But again I spent those four years being average. Maybe even below average. Feeling like you will never be above average in anything you do is really not awesome. I have taken what I was given in life and tried to make the best of it. Being average may suck sometimes but now that I am in the real world and have gotten big girl jobs and bought a car and I am paying loans I know that being above average in school means diddly because I worked with people that went to community colleges and people who went to good four year schools but we were all doing the same job and getting paid the same. I have a good life, great husband, and adorable son. Also my parents think I am above average so that’s all that matters, right? Haha.
No real point to this post besides the explanation of my tumblr name.
Also I am a soft 6 in the looks department so let’s call it average there too. :-)
