Whelp, I've had about a week or two of high school, so I figured I'd tell you all what I think. It's pretty damn boring. So, I figure'd I'd run through the classes I have to take, in the order that I take them.

1. Plane Geometry

Since I took Advanced Math in 7th grade, and actually got highschool credit for Algebra I in 8th grade, I'm already at Plane Geometry by Freshman year. My class is mostly inhabited by Sophomores and Juniors, and there's only one other Freshman in the class. The teacher, whose name wasn't interesting enough to remember, is the most boring woman alive who is totally fine with leaving the class for five minutes to do whatever.

2. CP Science

(CP stands for College Prep.)

Science is pretty simple . . . that's all there is to say about the class, really.

3. Art

Our art teacher is either the nicest and most creative woman alive, or a complete psychopath. The first day of art class, she strolled in with an inflated flamingo calling out, "Aloooha!"

We haven't even started working on any art, yet, in the class. Just bookwork and reading about the "fundamentals of art."

4. Software Apps

Horrible. Just a goddamn typing class.

We have a typing test to see who can type the most of a page in 30 seconds. I typed a whole paragraph, nobody else even finished a single line.

5. English

Meh, it's English. What all is there to say about it? We already got our first novel project; I'm reading Heart of Darkness.

6. World Studies

My World Studies teacher, Mr. Mehl, is probably one of the greatest history teachers I'll have ever had. He doesn't believe in textbook learning, and he's a hilarious guy. We took a pre-test in the class, and apparently, if that pre-test were the finals, I would've passed the class. Sadly, I still have to take it.

7. Marching Band

You've already heard enough about marching band.

High school is nothing like I expected it to be. I was expecting girls, explosions, girls, hardcore mathematics, girls, gutting open frogs, explosions, and sexy Philippine boys. And girls.

"and sexy Philippine boys" - Dimbark confirmed for gay.

Well, when i think about it, my middle school was pretty damn cool. Too bad i didn't study much. But as far as it goes for interaction and having fun, it was damn good.
We didn't have any females in our class. The entire school was 3000 students, 20 females.

Aww, look, little Dimbark is growing up!

I wanted to comment on the classes too but I can't think of anything to say. So just go and have fun.

Best years of your life unless you go to college of course. Make the most of it.

Also, this might just be my school, but all art teachers are either horrible in general, or raging potheads. They're the best. :-)

Shit, I'm in my last year and I've hated, well, disliked the last few years. It's been awkward and annoying the entire 3 years so far. I hate my friends, but I can't seem to make new ones. I want to be more social, but every time I try to be I feel more awkward. And I work hard to get Cs and Bs, while my friend cheats off of others and gets As and Bs. Place fucking sucks.

And god, the freshmen get more annoying and stupid every year. I never noticed it before, why all the other classes hated them, until last year, HOLY SHIT, they were so bad last year, and they are even worse this year!

One more year. Thank god.

I wish I socialized more in HS.
I talked to about 12 people total.

Join some clubs (not math or chess - LAME) and talk to EVERYONE!
If I had a dollar for every time i ran into someone from my graduation class and forgot their name... I would have about $50...

Regardless.

If you're shy, now's the time to cut that shit because if you don't open up in HS, college is going to BLOW.

Also, heart of darkness is a good book.
Also also, we've all been through HS so if you have any questions you know where we are.

Good Luck!
