If you could pick classes without the pressure of college and AP, what would you take

I was thinking about this earlier. If you could choose to take any classes without the pressure of having to take APs and all that college pressure, what would you take? For me, it'd be:

International Relations
Lang AP
Global Conflicts/Criminal Justice
Journalism II
Broadcast Journalism I
US Govt. AP
French I
Physics AP

I would still choose these AP classes, but some of the 8 I am taking next year are just sort of expected. I'm in Spanish Lang, so next year I'm 'supposed' to take Lit AP.

How about y'all?

    I would take the easiest classes possible, except for history. Or I'd take every hard class possible but not do any work.

    Yeah. I'd have all free periods and spend my time reading and sleeping.

    Food is not even necessary as long as I am sleeping or reading.
