An Apology Letter from Your AP Friends

AP tests are starting next week, which means soon enough you’ll be getting your friends back. In the meantime, here’s a quick apology note.

By Allyson Green

Dear Friends,

We are sorry that we have blown you off all year because we need to “study.” We’re sorry we spend more time with our study groups than with you, it’s not because we like them better. We’re sorry that every time we are able to hang out, it’s to get coffee to replenish ourselves from studying the night before. We’re sorry if we’re ever a little snippy with you. Chances are, we have a test coming up. AP takes up a lot of our time and energy, and we’re just trying to become better prepared for college. It’s not you, it’s us.

AP exams start in a week, which means we AP students (and teachers) will be cramming in review and learning whatever little bit of curriculum we have left. This also means, however, that you only have one more week to deal with us being busy, tired, and often crabby. We don’t mean to take out our stress on you. It’s just been a long year.

This week is going to be full of nerves and tension for us APers, and we might be a little on edge, so if you do get the chance to see us, give us a hug, some words of encouragement, and maybe a coffee. They will all be much appreciated (especially the coffee). We hope you understand and are willing to be patient with us for one more week. We promise that once it’s all over, we will make time for you and we can go back to being besties. Once again, we’re sorry.


Your tired AP friends
