AP testing time, that is. Week one of the torturous two week process begins today. Each and every AP student dreads this two week period like our parents dread income taxes. I can literally feel the stress radiating around the school.
1. There will be lots of crying.
We are currently under a ton of stress. I mean, the entire path of our lives depends on this test! Okay, that might be a slight overstatement, but still! The anxiety of the test definitely gets to us. It doesn’t take much to send us over the edge (and cause a few tears).
2. We are not available.
Don’t even ask me if I have plans on Saturday night. HA. You bet I have plans! With my test prep book! If you need me, I’ll be in my cave.
3. Don’t try to cheer us up.
Sure, my life will most likely not fall into an inevitable pit of doom if I don’t do great on the test. But, for the time being, I truly believe it will! And I don’t want to be told otherwise! Let me stress, man!
4. We may make some drastic decisions.
Test anxiety forces us to overreact sometimes. Who knows, I may decide to drop out of school and become a drug dealer this week! Don’t be alarmed though. The idea will subside after AP testing.
5. We still love you!
Despite the yelling, cursing, kicking, and punching, us AP students still love you all! We may say we hate you, but don’t you worry. That’s just the AP test talking. You’ll have your normal student back in no time!!
Moving on from school…
I have a stupid lingering pain behind my knee (on the back of my leg). It’s not too painful and I only feel it after I’ve been sitting for a while and get up. I can run on it perfectly fine! I decided to take an ice bath to try and make it feel better. I don’t know if I should keep running or not. What do you guys think?
Aside from that, I have some crock pot balsamic chicken to look forward to for dinner tonight! I’m waiting so patiently for it to be done.

- If you were me, what would you do about this lingering knee pain? Would you take a few days off or keep running?
