Changing Your Life...

What if you changed the way you live now? What would you do? Would the change be drastic - like taking advice from a popularity guide written in the 1950s,  not using a mirror for a year, or adding bugs to your diet? Maybe you would do something less extreme. Ever wonder what would happen if you took the SAT now? What score would you get as an adult?
