    basically all the same class I take now...minus the bad teachers (I have a lot)

    Chem regular
    Lit regular
    Latin Honors
    Music Honors
    Math Honors
    no Theology
    Global Honors

    I'd basically pick based on teachers-for some honors classes, the teachers and above and beyond, and other times beyond dreadful and the regular is amazing.

    3. Comparative Government AP
    4. Human Genetics
    5. Astronomy
    6. Kickboxing

    I would love to take AP Astronomy. Everything else would get too boring, 'cept maybe for AP lunch
  • aeshchinaaeshchina Registered User Posts: 285 Junior Member
    Want to take
    -Psychology
    -Thermodynamics
    -AP Art History
    -Speech and Debate

    It's physically impossible for me to take these, in addition to the seven classes I already have. But one day, I shall break the space-time continuum, and laugh, laugh at all of you (but especially my school's administration).
