Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

It was 10:30 pm, June 30. AP scores are going to be released tomorrow.

Tomorrow is going to be here in under two hours... I wonder if I could wait? WAIT! College Board headquarters is located on the East Coast!

Eager to hear my scores, I scoured the website for the number. No... that's not it... customer service? No... Ah! Grades by phone!

Testing out my theory, I decided to call the number, just to see if it would work. Lo and behold, I got the automated answering machine telling me to press 1 for AP scores. I did, but then I hung up.

I needed a credit card still, so I jumped out of my room. I saw the bright light coming from under the nearby door. Yes! She's still awake! I ran upstairs and explained the situation to my mom.

"Tomorrow", she said. Finally, if reluctantly, she decided to go ahead with it.

I ran back down the stairs to the main telephone. She was waiting for here Filipino show to finish, so I had to wait as well, but finally, we called.

1 888 308 0013... 1... a long string of numbers, AP number, birthmonth and day, credit card number, all separated by a verifying "1".

Not all of your scores are available.

That's ok! I must hear them! Finally then, the scores.

Your score for the AP US History Exam is... not available.

Whaat? But.. but...

If you would like to hear this score again, press 1.

But... what score?

When you are ready, press 9.

But... fine. Let's finish this.

Your score for the AP Calculus AB Exam is... 5

WOW! That's... pretty good, I must say!

Your score for the AP Physics B Exam is... 5

WOAH! Nice. Something to show to Mr. Johnson, at least.

Your score for the AP Spanish Language Exam is... 2

Um. No. I don't think I like that score. Oh well, I didn't think I'd do too well (but I thought I'd pass). The 5s were overpowering though.

YEAH! 52!

And no AP Computer Science? well, I guess it was the late test. Regardless, I was really interested in that score.

So to summarize:

  • Calc: 5
  • Physics: 5
  • Spanish: 2
  • US History: ??
  • Computer Science: ??

And the two scores I didn't get were the two I were most interested in hearing. Ah, well, I guess I can wait about a month.

(Yay!)
