AP U.S. History
Hi! I am debating whether or not I should take AP U.S. History in my upcoming sophmore year. I am concerned with the fact that I am already taking the following classes: Honors Chem, Honors Pre-Calc, Honors English, French 3, and Chamber Singers (advanced choir). In addition, I have many activities that I will be participating in which includes the following: treasurer of choir council, weekly singing lessons, the musical, the fall straight play, bards (after school advanced mens choir), french club, student council (maybe). Furthermore, I spend a lot of time studying, to the point that I am up until midnight or even 1am. I am afraid that I won't get much sleep to the point that I become majorly stressed. I did take honors english as a freshman and achieved an A all year; however, i believe it was because of the amount of time I put into the class. I read at a slow pace to be able to comprehend what I am reading. Plus, I don't really have much interest in history, in fact, I find it VERY boring. I am also paranoid with the fact that my GPA will decrease (currently have a cumulative of 3.92 as an upcoming sophmore); However, I plan to take many AP classes as an upperclassman and would like to get the experience as an underclassman. I am seeking for advice on the decision I should make. Thanks!10 replies
