Geometry has always been the one aspect of mathematics that I absolutely despise. I don’t like looking at pretty figures and shapes, I don’t like figuring out the size of the angle or the length of the hypotenuse, and I do not like doodling shapes into my workbook. In short, I don’t like geometry. (I guess my feelings are pretty obvious through my choice of wording in the first sentence).

Anyway, today I had a **GEOMETRY TEST. **And…what is it about? Oh, it’s about **ANGLES****, **which happens to be about my weakest area in geometry (and that’s saying something). Basically, what I’ve been learning about (or supposed to learn about; I don’t understand a fair bit of stuff) is finding unknown angles using things like corresponding and alternate and interior angles or angles in a triangle.

I don’t like geometry terms. 😉

Here’s the events listed in chronological order.

**YESTERDAY- **slowly reviewing ~~by going on Facebook ~~reading the math textbook

**TODAY- **I walk into homeroom, worrying about the math test that’s coming up in Period 3.

Then a stroke of luck comes…

**HOMEROOM- **it is announced that PSE (Health) class is cancelled and I will have **extra study hall! **Cheers erupt in homeroom.

**PERIOD 1- **Study hall! Like a madman I quickly review every single thing there is to review. I open the teacher’s presentation, I reread the textbook, I recomplete the Review Sets…is there really nothing more that I can do so that I can assure myself that I am totally ready? Well, that question can’t be answered yet; the bell rings…

**PERIOD 2- **Performing Arts. I simply forget that I have a math test as I’m too busy working on a Commedia Dell’Arte performance.

**PERIOD 3- **Wait. It’s Math already? Doesn’t that mean…it’s *test time*? I sit down and the teacher hands me a test. I look at the true or false questions…and do a bit of guesswork. Then I find stuff about sides and sum of interior angles…and it made me realize what I had forgotten to review.

**AFTERWARDS- **please don’t talk to me about how you answered questions on the test. I don’t want to hear anything from you.

And that…is my angles test legend, summarized.
