Senior Schedule

This is what my schedule currently consists of, but I still have one more class period to fill. Help?

Calculus
Physics
Astrophysics
Gov/ Econ
Modern Lit/ British Lit
PE/ Psychology

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am deciding between Spanish 3, Art 1, or a study hall. My thoughts about each:

-I really don't care about Spanish proficiency. My current Spanish 2 class is becoming too much work. Sure I have a high A, but I hate it. We get ~50 words and in a week or less test on them. It's ridiculous.

-I like art in my spare time. I don't necessarily like to finish a drawing on command, which is kind of a requirement for the class since I would have a weekly drawing assignment. I feel as though I would spend too much time perfecting a drawing, thus taking away from my other studies.

-I have never taken a study hall before, but it has become an option that I'm considering more and more for next year. If nothing else, I could use this time for extracurricular things (many people at my school do).

    Basically, which one would be most beneficial?

    Depends on your major but of course, 3-4 years of foreign language is very beneficial. Next comes Art and then Study Hall

    That's how I originally placed them as well, but then I started to consider other factors. If I hate the class, then senioritis may hit even worse than it already has (I've technically been a senior since sometime towards the end my 2nd year of HS. Two+ years of senioritis plus a class I hate could spell disaster. I really don't want to wreck my GPA because of Spanish.) Art may be a more relaxing period, giving me a little break. Study hall would do the same, except instead of drawing, I could work on whatever I wanted to. I don't know anymore...

    By the way, I plan to be a STEM major.

    If you want to be a STEM major, then Art can help with diagrams and sketches in college. If you don't like Spanish, go with Art
