Hey all! I'm transferring back to my old high school for junior and senior year. However, my old high school doesn't offer one of the electives I signed up for ( Aforementioned schedule here: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/high-school-life/1851975-junior-year-schedule-yay-or-nay.html
) and I'm wondering what I should change it to. (NOTE: I don't know what I want to major in yet! Kinda leaning towards STEM/premed track but I'm really unsure.)
I know if I'm aiming for selective universities I should take Spanish III, however I'm worried that I'll be lost in the class after a two year gap between Spanish II and Spanish III. Spanish is spoken a little bit at my home though and mostly by my grandparents, and there's also Duolingo so I might be able to pick it back up quickly.
However, there are some classes I'm really, really interested in that they offer at my old high school, specifically Creative Writing, Newspaper, and Drawing II.
Creative Writing/Literary Genres are half credit courses that would be really fun and interesting. I've been really eager to start writing more creatively and this course would be great with assisting me in that.
I took Journalism I freshman year and I really liked it, but I was dumb when selecting my schedule the next year and I didn't bother signing up to Newspaper I/Journalism II when I really should have. Newspaper would be really fun for me but it'd be incredibly time consuming, and unless I dropped either AP Stats or AP Bio I'd be stretched thin between clubs, ECs, and academics. I like to think I could do it all, though. :P
I've always had an incredible passion for drawing and I've filled dozens of sketchbooks since the 2nd grade. I dropped Drawing II this year to make room for Digital Art and I really regret it because Digital Art is barely (my definition of) Digital Art, it's just constant book work with no creativity involved whatsoever. I could restart my Art sequence and maybe take AP Art Studio senior year.
Any suggestions? I guess overall I'm asking whether or not I should be practical with my scheduling or pursue my interests, haha... Thank you for reading!
