So recently I found this website www.thredup.com. It is like an online thrift store, and they have AMAZING deals. I got 12 pieces for around $60. That's almost $5 a piece, and on top of that it was free shipping! Now I did use a 40% off coupon, and its probably not available anymore, but thredup always has great deals. If you download their app, and make a purchase through your phone, its 20% off your entire order.

SO during the 2013-2014 school year, I took AP Chemistry, AP World History, and AP Psychology. I am happy to say that I PASSED of the three tests. YAY! For both Chemistry and World History, I got a 3. I actually really wanted to get a 4 in Chemistry and I thought I got a 2 in World, so I guess it all worked out for me getting 3 on both. Then in Psychology, I got a 5!! WOOP! I was quite surprised but nevertheless very happy. Overall, I would say that it was satisfying.
