Why? Because, as I told everyone that asked with my go-to line, "look good, feel good, do good." Yeah, I felt like kind of a dork doing it, but that's sort of the point. The only reason I even woke up yesterday was to ace my calculus final. I might as well have dressed up for the occasion.
By the way, I really hate the word well. "Well" is meant to be used as the beginning to a counter-point to somebody else's point. I don't want to do well on my test, I want to do good. Good as in an A. Not well as in, well, who knows how I did, but I hope that it was in the higher range of grades. Well is a passive word, good is a sharp one. I'm glad we got that straight.
