My (Perfect) SAT Essay

Hello, my fellow homo sapiens! It’s nice to meet you, I’m Maddie: a homeschooled nerd. In June I took the SAT, and did so badly that I’m proud of the fact that I didn’t cut myself, or kill myself. So I’ve been studying two hours every day, sometimes with fail. But I think that I’ve been doing really well with the online course. I’ve found that when writing an essay what they really want is the longest, wordiest thing that you can create in 25 minutes and still stay on topic.  I finally got a perfect six on the essay recently (and yes I did celebrate, I had celebratory ramen). I thought you guys would like to know what perfection looked like; so here it is, pure perfection.

The prompt question: “Can you judge someone on their sacrifices?”

 “The sacrifices a person makes can define them for better or for worse; and sometimes they come to no cognizable consequence, through their sacrifice!  A sacrifice can be seen in many different lights. Can we trust someone purely through their sacrifices? What are these people forfeiting? Can people be trusted?  How do you come to trust someone? People are not always what they seem.

                What is this person sacrificing? Who or what is this sacrifice for, is it for their children, is it for their morals? What are they sacrificing, money, time, friendship?  Are they sacrificing friendship for money?  Not everyone has the same view when it comes to these things. Many people over exaggerate their sacrifices so that people will trust them; this is probably the number one way that people manipulate others. Some people can see straight though these lies and exaggerations and others can’t.  A lot of people are able to commit major crimes and get away with them from telling people about all of the sacrifices that they have made. What you really have to do to know if you can trust someone is really get to know them.

                People cannot be trusted through their “sacrifices” mainly because it is hard to tell what really happened. People will and can always lie about their sacrifices to try and get you to trust them.  You cannot trust or judge someone by what happened to, half the time they had no choice in what they could do. People can be judged by their decisions in life. I do suggest that you don’t judge someone on their past decision but on the decisions on how they interact while around and in current time. If you were not there at the time odds are you don’t have the full story. Some people mature as they get older and learn from their mistake, while others go rotten.

The only way to know if you can trust someone is by getting to know them. It is more a practice of figuring out what you can trust them with, than anything else. Some people you can trust to turn on the coffee machine in the morning and not much else. While other people you can trust to help you bury a body. There are different levels of trust; we trust all people to a certain extent.  It’s just a matter of finding out how much we trust them. So how do you find out how much you can trust someone? You spend time with them. Don’t judge them on their past judge them on what they have learned from their past.

                A sacrifice is not always for the better, and sometime a person has no choice when they have to make that sacrifice. Some people exaggerate about the sacrifices that they have made in the past; this makes it very hard to judge someone. Sacrifices are usually something that a person has done in the past; a majority of the time a person changes in the period of time from that sacrifice to the day that they meet you. Sacrifices while they do say something about a person don’t tell the whole truth.”

Ahhh! The beauty of perfection. Well, ’till the next informative blog post my dear homo sapiens.
