It hasn’t been the worst day, but it also hasn’t been a good day.
Today was the day that I was going to find out my AP test results. I have been waiting for two months for these to come back, so I was a little stressed out for the past two weeks impending this date. I woke up early this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep because I just needed to know if I had passed-because I really thought I did.
Then as I got logged into my account to check my result, a whole bunch of twos were staring in my face. I needed threes for them to count as college credit, and there were four AP tests that I worked super hard on and spent so much time on in class and on homework to make sure that I passed. And now I couldn’t even count them as college credit. These tests are not cheap either, so there was just a bunch of money getting thrown done the drain because I didn’t get up the level I needed.
I was feeling pretty bad for myself, and then Aladdin came on TV and as A Whole New World was playing tears started coming out of my eyes. I was just so disappointed that I didn’t pass these tests. I felt like I wasted my time and money taking these exams for nothing in return.
I’m trying to just remember that these tests don’t define anything about my intelligence. These are just really hard standardized tests.
