Classes Fall 2012

EDIT: Sorry, I've been super busy this week and haven't been able to keep up with everyone's comments. I just took the biology test from hell, so I'll catch up soon! :)

Today marks the most stressful day of the semester: the day we get to start registering for classes.

It gets bad. It's literally a full-out Battle Royale. You get assigned a time to register for your classes online, but at the same time so do a hundred other students or so. If you don't click on your classes RIGHT when your time slot opens up, the class will fill up in a second and you'll be stuck with your crappy second choices.

It's like being thrown into the lion's den, I'm not kidding. I've seen people cry over schedules, it's that bad.
Ok, maybe not that bad.

Thank god I'm not a freshman anymore. I have less people to "compete" with since I'm taking more specialized classes.

In my opinion, there are two ways you can go when registering for classes: go for the best teachers, or go for the good time slot. Somehow this semester I got both: good teachers and Fridays off. I don't think I'll be as lucky this time, though.

Here are some of the classes I'm (hopefully) going to be able to take next fall (keep your fingers crossed!):

1. Shakespeare In Depth
Let's be honest. There is no way I would take this class if I didn't need it to graduate. Sorry Shakespeare.

2. Introduction to Writing Poetry
I used to have a magnetic poetry maybe I'll like this class?
3. General Physics + Lab
I hate math, so therefore I have an inkling I'll hate physics.
4. Ecology
Maybe I'll persuade the teacher to let us make these in class.
5. American Politics

I'm actually looking forward to this class (if I get in) because it's being offered right during the 2012 election. I have no idea what to expect of it, but it counts as a Core class I need to graduate, so it's a win win situation in my opinion.

For any of you who are students, what classes are you taking next year?


  1. 1. Looks okay
    2. Be prepared for poems galore
    3. Totally an objective course, you can kill it
    4. Do it!
    5. Oh that will be fun ;)

    1. Yeah, I think I can kill Physics and get it out of the way really quick. And the politics class does look kind of neat!

  2. You will definitely love Rome :) Have you been there before? Thank's for stopping by my place!

    1. No, I've never even been to Europe before so I'm super excited. It's going to be a great adventure.

  3. I'd love to take a poem writing class:)

    1. I love to write short stories, but I've never really written poetry before. So it should be an interesting class!

  4. I still have nightmares about registering for classes! So stressful. I was thankful I came in with 6 credits (from taking APs) so I was a day or two before the students that had come in with zero (though it didn't help much!). Hope you got all of the classes you wanted!
