If you chose mostly As: Icelandic sheep farmer
You may physically be sitting in the middle of a 3-hour Zoom lecture, but mentally? Mentally, you’re in the remote fields of Skeiða-og Gnúpverjahreppur, tending to your flock. It’s hard work, waking up at 5am to make sure the feed is ready, grueling work in fact, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. When the bitter winds bite your gloved fingers as you tend to a baby lamb, you can tell yourself that at least you’re not slogging through yet another hour of O-Chem.
If you chose mostly Bs: European ne’er-do-well
Travelling for pleasure may be on pause right now, but that won’t stop you from imagining yourself walking the streets of Paris with unlimited funds and unlimited time. You might find yourself wandering the Louvre, or stopping by a cute café and grabbing an authentic macaron—so petite! Without school or a job, you would finally have time to read all those books that you definitely were going to read in quarantine. It’s just so much more enticing to read when you’re lounging by the Seine.
If you chose mostly Cs: Old Victorian widow(er)
It’s your daydream, so you can time travel to Victorian England if you want to. You’d be wealthy, of course, not some Dickensian orphan. Perhaps even a widow(er) whose spouse died under mysterious circumstances. It’s such a shame they had to perish, but the money you inherited from their death allows you to throw the most elaborate dinner parties. Is that an Outlook notification sound you hear, alerting you to another email in your inbox? Why, you don’t know what an “email” is! It must just be your maidservant Marie letting you know that your afternoon tea is ready.
If you chose mostly Ds: Los Angeles celebrity
Ever find yourself an hour deep into your Instagram discover page looking at pictures of celebrities for no discernable reason? Well now you get to be the celebrity that procrastinators stare at. Picture yourself grabbing delectable sushi at Nobu, then getting chauffeured to attend Psalm West’s luxurious 2nd birthday party (sponsored by Pepsi™). Who cares about grades when you’re richer than God? Besides, your parents probably bribed the school to let you in anyways.
