Studying for Spanish is overrated.

Cambridge Banquet:
Cake. Howls of laughter. Embarrassing elementary school photos of the seniors. A good hug from Kyle. Smiles. Silly awards. Thunderous applause.

Studying. Reviewing. Exams. Speculation about miscalculations. Outbreak. Cleaned out lockers. Senior last will and testaments. Yearbooks. Final classes.

Car rides with Puja and Regina. Slurpees. Dove dark chocolate. Early release. Chilling out.


Congratulations. Fireworks. Hugs. Taking photos.

I can't wait until summer.

Guess what?

I don't have to think about AICE Math ever again. It is such a relief. While I liked the class itself, those exams were brutal. Mr. Junior Class Math Student of the Year sat next to me for both tests and after the one today he turned to me and declared, "that was hard," which immediately raises red flags in my head. Should I not have found it easy? Does this mean I did all the math wrong? I certainly hope not.

Tomorrow I have one of my hardest exams. Unlike AP, which probably everyone reading this is familiar with, there are no multiple choice questions for history! It's three hours to write four essays that answer questions about the various topics I've learned. The source based question (SBQ) is always about the Causes of the WWI and then you can pick three of the other subjects. I'd be curious to know if anyone else has studied Imperialism in the late 19th century, the Russian Revolution, Years between the Wars/Totalitarianism, Napoleon and the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution.

I really should be studying...

As a result, the rest of this post is just going to be a lot of photos I've taken and not shared. A massive photo dump, if you will.blouse -- Charlotte Russe, high waisted shorts -- Forever 21, shoes -- my art class, watch -- Kohl's, ring -- J.C. Penney's

Coming to the end.

I have no homework for the rest of the school year! Sadly, everything else from here on on out is revision for my 11 AICE exams. Why yes, the next two weeks will be pure chaos and stress.

Actually, I'm trying to be chill about it all. Getting worked up over it just wastes time and instead I'll spend the time I can to study.

I am going to do my best. I am going to let everything I know pour out of my head and onto the paper. I am going to write two successful compositions (each three pages). I am going to follow all other directions. I am going to not let math scare me. I am going to check my math for stupid errors. I am going to read my biology lab carefully. I am going to check off steps in the procedure as I complete them. I am going to pass.

Sorry that turned into a self-confidence boosting speech about this coming week, but I definitely needed it.

Have a good weekend!

P.S. Lizzi and Natalie: I'm sure you both kicked the APUSH exam's butt! :D
