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.
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.
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.
