Today was my first day back to school. Although I am sad that I didn't take full advantage of the summer, I am reallyyy glad to be back in school. I already have homework in four subjects, and three quizzes on Monday. Jeez. I didn't even get a chance to get comfy being in school again. But that's okay. I crave a challenge, and every single one of my classes is gonna be tough (except for P.E).
AP Psychology is probably going to be my favorite class. I'll get to study the human mind in such great depth. We're gonna study serial killers, stereotypes in society and how they were formed, why we have certain personalities, the development of the brain, society and how it affects us individually, why we have nightmares...It's gonna be awesome. Really really hard, but still awesome.
AP Language and Composition. This is basically my advanced english class. It'll be really good for me as a writer, because my teacher is super analytical and picky when it comes to how we write essays and narratives, and I need someone like that to critique my writing. I'm also looking forward to the reading material.
Journalism. The newspaper only has six people working on it this year, which is the lowest number in years. We probably won't have enough people to put out an issue every month, which is a bummer. The good news is that means more work for me. I am nervous, because I have so much to learn about formatting and writing in a journalistic style, but I have a lot of ideas and stuff.
AP German. I have a bad feeling about German this year. Our german teacher is only speaking german during class from now on. Which means lessons will be taught in german, questions will be asked in german, answers will be given in german....ugh. I don't think this is fair. I was told to skip German II because I was so darn good my first year, and so now I technically only have three years of german. I don't know enough of the language to understand every single thing my teacher says. I can get the gist of what she's saying, but I really wish she would speak English.
AP Calculus. I am intimidated by this class, but I think I can do it. I love my teacher just because he told us that most of the stuff we learned in Pre Calculus was completely useless. FINALLY a teacher admits this! Of course, most of the stuff I learn in Calculus will probably be useless too, considering none of my career choices involve any kind of advanced math. But eh, oh well. It looks good on my transcript.
Chemistry. My only normal, non-AP class. Science is a weakness of mine. I can pull A's and B's, sure, but it's my least favorite subject and I never feel like I've learned much from it. Chemistry might be interesting though. And my teacher is...odd, to say the least. But I like odd, so I like her.
I have lunch at 10:30. Yes, really. Who eats lunch at 10:30? It might be good for me though, because I always skip breakfast. But there's only one person I know who has 4th period lunch with me, and that's Katie. So we sit together. And we have P.E together, thank goodness. P.E is the worst class to have without any friends.
For some reason, all of the ditzy annoying preppy bitchy girly girls have AP classes with me. I don't get it. They're strange girls, because I think they can be kinda smart when they're pushed to be, but otherwise they're sooooo duuuumb. AP Psych is filled with 'em. They're all so smug and gossipy and they NEVER SHUT UP. God, most of the girls in my school suck.
