Guess what suckers? 
This is an amazing thing. Since 10th grade, I have had a period of my life that became utterly consumed by my portfolio. AP portfolios consist of two parts: a breadth of work to show you are a "jack of all trades" in the medium and a concentration of one idea that evolves and shows progress. Both parts are equally difficult. The breadth stretches you and you realize how much time you've devoted to one medium only, perhaps I am good at portraits, but a portfolio full of portraits isn't good enough for the AP board. The concentration is tricky because you not only have to come up with an idea--something I'm terrible at-- but you have to show "progress." This usually means I will finish the required twelve pieces and then group them in order of what looks like the first to the last even if the first piece was the tenth I did. It's frustrating.

    BUT. I finished my last one. There are three, I've now done all of them. 3D was the first one (the carved books) and Drawing (the ballpoint portraits) and 2D Design (the cut paper.)

    AND…I ended up getting the highest possible score so heck yeah world, I'm done and I finished strong and I won't have to do another portfolio for at least another half a year. Dangit. 

But having this knowledge going into college is helpful. I know when I work the best and I can recognize the signs of complete burnout that happens 3/5's of the way there. It's the only thing I feel even remotely confident about so that's good.

I put the 'pro' in procrastination.

Hello, I'm Zenny. I am 18. I can be mentally like a mature adult but I have the height of a middle schooler so people rarely take me seriously.

I'm quite a nerd. I love anime, video games, mechanical pencils and Disney.
Some of my favorite shows are Ouran High School Host Club, Baccano, Kids on the Slope, Fullmetal Alchemist, Durarara, Madoka Magica, Tsuritama etc.

I'm an avid Pokemon fan having played the original Blue and Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, Pearl, Platinum, SoulSilver and White plus the soon to be released Black and White 2. (it wasn't until I listed out all of these that I realized I've wasted a lot of time on this series. Yet I regret nothing.)

I love me a good Disney Movie but even more I love the parks. I live reasonably close to the area so it's safe to say I've sold my soul to the franchise (hahah just joking guys. :|) My favorite parks are tied with Magic Kingdom and Epcot depending on my mood, MK does have the better night time entertainment.

HECK YEAH! Thank you very much. Hours of stupid memorization have finally paid off, I might know what I'm doing at this point. Maybe.
