A word about AP scores

As many of you have gotten/are about toget AP scores back, I want to remind everyone of a few things:

-The AP program is meant to provide students with the opportunity to learn college-level material while still in high school. To a college, the AP scores of an incoming freshman serve as the ability to place out of introductory classes. That’s it. It’s just a kind of placement test, nothing more. That being said, don’t despair if you didn’t do as well on an AP as you had hoped. All that means is you might need to take one more class in college. You’re not a lesser person if you got a bad score on an AP.

-The AP program is weirdly focused and structured so even if you do good/bad on a specific subject you might have a completely different experience with it in college, and that’s okay.

-If you’re not a senior and plan on sending your scores to colleges as part of the application process, don’t worry either. You might not want to send them a really low score, but in regards to the application process what colleges mostly look at is the fact that you took the class at all (”rigor of schedule” is what many schools like to call it). Colleges also look at so many other factors that a good or bad score might not even make a difference, and that’s okay.

-Everyone has their bad days and there are hundreds of reasons why you might not have gotten the score you wanted. Don’t dwell on it. You also don’t know how close/far away you were from the thresholds to each score, so don’t sweat it.

-On the flip side, a 5 doesn’t mean you’re god’s gift to humanity. By all means be proud of your accomplishments, but remember to stay humble. College will be a huge transition for everyone; the fact that you got a 5 on x AP won’t matter when you’re sitting in your college classes.

Regardless of the score you got, you made it through the year and the test and I’m proud of all of you–you should be too.

Reblog with a crazy thing you've written on an AP exam frq.

Don’t say anything too specific though cuz the collegeboard will get ya.
I’ll just start by saying I took four this year and the last question of the last exam was just idk.idk.idk.idk. So I said something to the effect of “I have no idea and honestly I don’t care anymore”.

“Now I know grief is a whetstone that sharpens all your love, all your happiest memories, into blades that tear you apart from within. Something has been torn out from inside me that will never be filled up, not ever, no matter how long I live. They say “time heals,” but even now, less than a week after my father’s death, I know that’s a lie. What people really mean is that eventually you’ll get used to the pain. You’ll forget who you were without it; you’ll forget what you looked like without your scars.”

Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You

All Things New

One touch breaks bonds with bosom of earth,
one glance back at everything I’ve ever known.
A moment that lasts forever. All in the physics.

Soon I’ll be centuries past as I pull away,
one last look at old forests, barren fields and hay,
as my co-pilot beside me begins to pray.

I blink. We jump. I see the face of god.
He is manifold, magnificent; a fragment of a figment;
a filament within the firmament. A wrong made right.

When I look, it is as if I’m absolved of my sins.
I remove my restraints, and soar like the Seraphim,
staring down at our strange new jewel, so very bright.

Suddenly, within my head I hear my father’s voice.
Calm of tone, methodical, full of passionate poise,
reciting verse from a parlor chair, his leather throne:

“And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.”

Unwind Dystology by Neal Shusterman

5 out of 5 stars

Full disclosure: Neal Shusterman is my favorite author, so I’m clearly biased (although it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t my favorite series of his). But this series is a heck of a ride.

In case you haven’t read any of these books (it goes Unwind, then UnWholly, UnSouled, and finally UnDivided), the premise is that in the not too far-off future, the battle over abortion in the U.S. has led to a civil war. It got so bad that schools were closed down and teenagers were running amok with nothing to do, and due to a combination of recent technological advancements made in the medical field, the public’s fear of the “feral teens,” and the desire to find some sort of resolution to the war, the Unwind Accord was signed, which made abortion illegal but allowed parents the ability to “unwind” a child between the ages of 13 to 18. Unwinding is the process by which 100% of a person’s parts are surgically separated and donated off to other people. Think organ donation, only the whole body, and the person is alive the entire time. Eerie, right? And the books delve into the philosophical issues arising from unwinding, such as, what is a soul, what happens to our souls when we’re unwound, etc.

So that’s the premise, and the series follows some amazing characters who were sent off to be unwound at the beginning of the first book. Shusterman wrote the first one as a stand-alone, so you can read just that one and be all set (thank goodness, because I hate when there’s not much resolution at the end of the first book of a series). The idea for the rest of the series came to him years later, and he started writing it when he had developed the idea well enough that he felt it was a story worth telling.

I’ve already made this review long enough, so I’m not going to go into much further detail, but suffice it to say, if you haven’t read any of this series, GIVE IT A SHOT. Shusterman takes a really unbelievable premise and makes a really believable world out of it. If you’ve read the first or second book of the series, I highly encourage you to continue it. The fourth book in particular gave me so many chills.

Shusterman is a master storyteller, and he’s really, really good at making the stakes really high and throwing as many obstacles as possible at the characters. None of these books felt predictable. With as many teen dystopian books out there today as there are, I really think this series stands out. Highly recommend!

He Who is Without Sin

Flipping through the pages his eyes read a mile a minute,
scanning, compiling, learning, enraptured, in a sense,
so much archaic phrasing, unsure about the source dating,
he closes it in a giant plume of layered dust.

“Lieutenant, a question, if I may?”

A bored man in fatigues glanced up,
nodding, “go ahead, Loki, if you must.”

Evening light filtering in through broken stained glass
cast shapes across an alabaster face as lips moved,
but without emotion, “With this collected wisdom, sir,
how did they manage to lose it all? Why? Why do this?”

The man nodded towards a faded old wooden cross
in a disheveled corner of the space, “See that over there, Lo?”
With whirring clicks and servos sounding off, Loki turned,
“yes…it reads as Oak. Local. Handmade.”

“It once was more than wood, and it mattered to some,
but really, it’s what is stood for that counted most.”
Loki wheeled back, tilt to head, a lilt of curiosity to its voice,
“And what is that, Lieutenant?”

Removing his hat, the man looked outside the ruin, eyes staring far off,
“That we’re hypocrites Loki, and sometimes, we forget that.”

“…You can always tell the particles apart, in principle–just paint one of them red and the other one blue, or stamp identification numbers on them, or hire private detectives to follow them around. But in quantum mechanics the situation is fundamentally different: You can’t paint an electron red, or pin a label on it, and a detective’s observation will inevitably and unpredictably alter its state, raising doubts as to whether the two had perhaps switched places”
