So, time for a lovely update brought to you by yours truly…
This week has been crazy, literally.
First, on Tuesday, we had the band Spring Concert. It was pretty sad, actually. My last band concert, ever…. It was really sad when we had to go accept our Senior Plaques. Miss Clutts was all sad and she was crying when each of us came up and, I’ll admit it, I cried. It was even worse when they read the thing about Kayla, and gave her plaque to her parents. I think that was a good thing to do, though. Then the seniors played “I Will Remember You” (the version we played was arranged by Mr. Nguyen, which is kinda neat), while Heather Cripps read a poem. It was cool. The band I’m in played October by Eric Whitacre (if you’ve never heard this song, go find it and listen to it NOW!!! In fact, I’ll make it easy on you and tell you that there’s a recording on this page) and An American Overture for Band (don’t know who composed this one, I didn’t like it very much).
The next day (Wednesday, for those of you who haven’t been keeping track), I had to get up early and take the AP Calculus test. It wasn’t as bad as it was made out to be, and I felt fairly good until the last section of the free response section. It was killer. I still think I’ll get a two, maybe a three. Then, when we got back to school, it was time for EAST, and Mr. Clay had bought all of the seniors in EAST a USB Jump drive, a Sharpie to sign “The Table,” and some candy. It was really nice of him. Now I just have to figure out what I’m going to sign on the table. (Kinda need to figure that out since my last day is tomorrow…) Then I took Mrs. Smith’s advice on how to prepare for her AP test… I just did stuff with my friends. (Yes she did tell us just to have fun to prepare us for the test.)
Then today (Thursday, for the uninitiated), I again got up early to take the AP English Literature and Composition test. (AP English 12, for the regular people) It sucked. The multiple choice questions weren’t all that bad, but they weren’t good, either. But the essays SUCKED. I just BS’d them all, and I know they sucked. And the allotted time for three essays was TWO FRIGGIN’ HOURS. Not only that, but during the essay part, I suddenly got this killer headache. (Coincidence, I think not) So today sucked, BIG ONES.
Oh, and in my last post, I talked about the “practice” AP test we took for English. It turns out I had the highest score for the Multiple Choice (don’t know how that worked), and on my essays I got two 7s, and an 8. And the eight was on the essay about the e. e. cummings poem… oh, the irony. Too bad that wasn’t the REAL AP test….
I guess that’s all for now… but man, what a post…. over 2600 characters…that’s quite insane.
