You: lol it’s just an AP test Me, an intellectual: Now we are coming upon the biggest fight of our lives, we are preparing for war and it’s every man for himself. Not everyone will make it out of here with a passing score, and that’s just reality. We shall all fight, and while we lose some of you guys, it was an honor learning with you. God speed, soldiers, God speed.

Guys, here’s a fun tip, if you really want to get ahead in your AP classes over the summer (even though I know most of you procrastinate in ridiculous amounts, like me) if you just google the name of your AP class, for example, AP Biology and click the APCentral/Collegeboard link it will take you to the “Professionals” or teachers page and there are course reviews and course guide PDFs on there that basically tell you everything in the course and it’s pretty great.

Disability services exist for AP classes and tests

The college board offered a range of disability accommodations for AP testing and other standardized tests

don’t allow your school to screw you over by saying those services do not exist, especially for AP testing

make sure to get your information and necessary materials in at
least 5 months ahead of time

services like large print materials, Braille, and extended time exists for students with disabilities

don’t let your school screw you over for AP classes, don’t let them scare you out of taking AP classes if you have a disability

AP Testing
  • Good luck on your AP tests everyone! You've gotten this far, now you just have to pass the test. Please get a good night's rest and relax. I love you all, and no matter what you score I'm so proud of you.

Wow I am the worst at keeping up with this account I apologize. Overall this past school year was probably the worst ever and I have never been so constantly sad and stressed at all times but it’s okay because I got a scholarship for full tuition and fees at my #1 college so I’m optimistic for the future… also terrified. College is scary. 


Hopefully as I start to review things for the upcoming school year I’ll have more things to post but for now here is one of my study guides for AP Music Theory. 

benefits of taking ap music theory in high school, music theory in college is all review… so far…

also, it’s starting to rain here in reno! coffee always tastes better when it’s raining for some reason.
