I took the AP English Language and Composition exam today, and it was a nightmare. There are two sections, a multiple choice section, and then a section where you have 120 minutes to write three essays. I already knew that the multiple choice would be difficult, and it was, but I didn’t expect the essay questions to be so obnoxious. Ugh.
I’ve been stressing over this dumb exam for ever and now I feel like I totally bombed it. So much for college credit and for wasting $87. At least all my friends felt the same. No one felt like they did a really good job. We also had to write the essays in pen, which kind of threw me off, because I then couldn’t go back and erase things and fix them; once they were down on the paper, they were stuck there.
But, there’s nothing I can do about it now, except to wait for my scores to come in the middle of July. So far away!
To celebrate our immense failure, we all decided to go out to IHOP, which was delicious and satisfying as always. After that I came home. And I slept. And I slept some more. I was so exhausted and I felt like my mind was just fried. If you asked me what the sum of 2 + 2 was, I probably wouldn’t have been able to tell you.
I just got back from playing tennis with a bunch of friends. It was really fun, but I really have to practice a lot more in order to be ready to play singles in the fall season. But I’m not too worried. I’ve got a whole summer ahead of me.
Anyone else take an AP exam? If so, how was it?
