COMPLAINING TIME! =)
As I brought up before in a decently recent post, I had two major tests this week. One being AP Environmental Science (yesterday) and the other being AP World History (today). I spent 95% of my weekend studying - not even using my weekly social event (yes, that exists) to see anyone, and that is saying something. Oh they're just tests, you say. But no. No they aren't. APES I can deal with, it's just a bunch of cycles and topics to memorize. I think I did okay on that test, but I'm not particularly confident. AP World on the other hand... the word "test" is an understatement. It should be called a "you-can-study-as-much-as-you'd-like-but-you'll-still-be-tested-on-random-things-you've-never-seen-before." And that, my friend, is exactly what it was. I spent hours and hours studying for this test, and I can honestly say I walked into the room feeling pretty prepared. But no, when the I first laid eyes on the first multiple choice question (out of thirty.. each one was a venomous bullet of its own) I only thought one thing.. "shoot". Over the course of the multiple choice, I basically accepted the fact I wasn't going to do well in that portion. Maybe I got 30% of the questions right. Moving onto the essay portion.. I think I did somewhat alright. It was't my BEST essay, but I'm certainly feeling better about that than the multiple choice...
