My school year is so ridiculously packed! I don’t think I’ve ever been this weighed down with work before.  The sad thing is that I’m only in 10th grade and my classes shouldn’t be too difficult.  I’m taking Chinese 2, honors English, sports training, AP European history, AP calculus AB, biology (I wussed out of honors), and advanced instrumental ensemble. 

The concepts we cover in class aren’t way out there or anything; they’re pretty straightforward. What makes the classes so demanding is really the ridiculous amount of work.  I had to complete 3 AP European history essays in 2 days (yeah, it doesn’t sound bad at all, right?), and just to be clear, it usually takes me about 5+ hours to write a stinking essay (understand now?).  Clearly, I have to learn to write a 30-minute essay before the AP exam…and that could be a problem.  Well, the good news is that I only have 2 and 3/4 years left before I get to go to college and do…more work! 😀

Oh 11th grade, I can’t wait to find what you have in store for me…
