    Manaal was always a really serious and conscientious student, and she got good grades and worked hard, she cared. It was time for ap exams for all of her ap classes, and, she was taking a ton of ap classes which could sometimes be a disaster, lots of ap tests - ap english, ap bio, ap environmental studies, ap history, ap world history, and ap chemistry, ap physics, ap physics 1, and ap government. It was a bit of a test nightmare.

    Throughout the whole school year she knew that finals week, and taking that ap exam in each class, was the most important time of the year and that those tests and exams counted the most toward your final grades.

    So, finals week was upon her, and it was the day of her final exam in ap englsih in junior year. She got to the cafeteria where they were giving out the test, and everyone was there, all her friends and classmates, and everyone was getting ready.

    Sharp pencils, everything organized, and the teacher who was the test administrator, or proctor, told the students that they could start to fill in the bubbles with their names and all of that information. Now, before tests and other assignments Manaal has this habit of needing to first clean her glasses - makes sense - so, with everything all ready for the ap exam, and not expecting any kind of disaster at all, she took her glasses off and started to wipe them with her shirt.

    Suddenly - SNAP - the glasses just break, right in half, two identical pieces, one in each hand, and she just sat there, no idea what to do, frozen, her heart starting to race - a real panic attack coming on!

    She jumps out of her chair and runs to the teachers - HELP she yells, my glasses just broke, this is as disaster, a nightmare - HELP! They were calm, too calm, and just casually suggested that she take the make-up exam the next week. They didn't get that she had a whole set of ap exams to take, one week after the other. Then they asked if she could just take the test without her glasses, but she couldn't do that because her eyes were really bad and she really couldn't see without them. Finally they were just like, well, sorry, we can't do anything for you, it's all on you.

    Great, thanks a lot.

    She thought it would end in total disaster but at that moment a librarian from her school walked by, and, as everyone knows, librarians can handle pretty much any emergency, and this definitely was one - her final grades depended on it! So, they ran to the library, the seconds ticking by, and there they found some paper crafting tape, like masking tape, and she wraps it all up like its a broken arm, and it works! BUT, it takes a really long time, and the kids have already are started in on their ap english exam.

    She runs back to her seat and hasn't even had a chance to do the pre-bubbling. By the time she actually gets to the multiple choice section, she's way behind. She gets filled with fear and anxiety - this is the kind of scary story that happens to other people not to her - and she just starts filling in random answers, nervous, trying to catch up.

    Half of her mind is throwing herself a pity party and can't get past the fact that her glasses broke right before her ap exam, and the other half is trying to rally and recover. Her glasses started coming apart, of course, and every two seconds she had to reach up and adjust them to keep them on, and so she could see the test she was taking.

    She was so behind, and so out of it, and practically crying, tears, pain - but finally, she got through it, for better or worse, and even though she had an AP Exam Disaster, at least she was done. She went home and cried about it some more.

    But, a month later, in June, she logged in to college boards to receive her scores, and guess what - she got a 5, the maximum best you can get. She had been so ready to give up, and she had spent a lot of time being really upset about it, but in the end, she pushed through and was rewarded for her efforts! That's parity!
