As some of you know, when I was in high school, I thought SAT stood for Saturday School. And, there was no way I was going to go to school on Saturday! Monday through Friday was enough for me, thank you very much.
Well, in time I learned that the SAT is actually a test that students who are headed for a four-year university right out of high school must take. It stands for – well, if you want to know what it stood and stands for, click here WHAT DOES SAT STAND FOR?

The happy ending to my story is that even though I didn’t end up taking the SAT (transfer students in my day didn’t have to take the SAT), I did graduate from a four year university, and eventually I took the GRE for graduate school, which another story for another time.
It’s never too early to start thinking about your future! Whatever career you decide to pursue – make sure you love it, you are good at it, and you can earn a living wage doing it.
And, don’t forget what I told you: not everyone is ready to go to a four-year university right out of high school. Not every job requires a four-year degree. There are lots of careers that require a two-year degree or training of some sort. Capitalize on your skills and gifts. Follow your dreams!
