Well, another year has come and gone, and with it all my cares about everything! lol anyways
10th grade in a nutshell was basically a stupid excuse for me to lose sleep over dumb teachers.
Anyways, lemme fill in all incoming freshmen (9) and sophmores (10) about what I've done the first two years
of high school:
4 AP classes
countless Pre-AP classes
Good PSAT score
Awaiting my AP scores...
(Read other posts about that, "Taking 3 APs as a sophmore too much?!?")
Anyways, the plain answer to that is no. As long as you put yourself first, don't listen to anyone else
and you focus really well and get good teachers, you're golden. For me, this was the first year I can
truly say I had some wack-ass teachers (especially Chem).
11th grade schedule:
AP English 3 (Language)
AP US History
AP Physics 1
AP Music Theory
AP Calc AB**
German 3 Pre-AP
**I haven't decided if I want to do Pre-Calc over the summer or not, but I am leaning towards yes**
Now you might be thinking, "acdc55, you're gonna die." Well it depends. My school is weird in that we
only have one AP Bio and Chem teacher, but we have a plethora of Calc and Physics teachers that have
their masters in the field. My Latin teacher has been my teacher the past 4 years, so no surprise there. The
Music Theory teacher is also a teacher I've known for 6 years, and he used to be my band teacher for 2 of those
years. There's a good chance my AP Euro teacher this year will be my US Hist teacher next year. Aaaand... I can
safely say that all (but 3) English teachers at my school (around 15 total) are excellent. So in short, I hope I don't die.
Now with the teachers in mind, if I can get my act together and focus like never before and change over the summer, its
possible to have a great Junior year (9th grade was great, 10th grade was BRUTAL). tbh This summer is really dedicated to
change, and if I can develop better habits earlier, I should be fine. But let's be realistic: easier SAID than DONE. Hey,
miracles happen, so you never know....
