I will have taken 11 of the 20 offered AP classes by the time I graduate which is as many as my schedule allows. I'm in an arts magnet program as a creative writing major that I had to audition for and am required to have two honors g/t courses each year in my schedule for my creative writing major. I took four classes last summer to have space for AP electives which were all in core requirement areas such as pe, speech as health.

This year though I worked from April to early July as a server at this restaurant called Souper salad but I quit because of inconsistent pay and a bad working condition.
I'm very worried about how I will stand in the college admissions process because of my low test scores and less than stellar community service. Most of my time is eaten away by chores (its just my dad and me) and my magnet school's creative writing program. We do public readings every month an submit monthly to our departments literary magazine that is run by the seniors. Next year I'll be co editor-in-chief with another student. However last year our magazine won the highest award given to lit mags by NCTE, the only one given in Texas.
