First Day Of School

As I was getting ready for my first day of school I noticed something rather strange. You know when you get that excited feeling about starting a new year? Sometimes you get a little nervous? You can't help but think: Will my teachers like me? Will I make it to my classes on time? Will the kids laugh at my new haircut? Weirdly though I did not really think any of these (well maybe the "will the kids laugh at my new haircut") I don't know if as I get older the hype of school just disappeared. All I kept thinking was same thing different year. I didn't see any new faces as I walked into the school (except for some freshman) So really it was nothing new.

As the day went on I was happy to have something to do. I was looking forward to certain classes. I was happy to see friends I hadn't seen all summer. Some of my teachers seemed really cool.

Some classes I'm taking:

American Lit. Honors: Okay I got homework in this class. WHAT KIND OF TEACHER GIVES HOMEWORK ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!?! And better yet I had to do it at 7:30 in the morning! Ugh. Plus my real teacher wasn't even there. That's right folks, I had a sub the first day of school. That's a first.

Honors Geometry: This is a sophomore class. You may asked why I'm taking a sophomore class when I'm a junior. Well see my freshmen year (when I was supposed to take Algebra 1) I took Integrated 1. I was apparently too advanced for this class and also found out it's not a college prep course. So my sophomore year I took Algebra 1. This wasn't so bad because I wasn't the only sophomore. I was also apparently too advanced for this class because my teacher recommended me for Honors Geometry. See I like this idea, its better for colleges and lets hope it actually challenges me. However, I'm in a class with only four sophomores and the rest are freshmen and I'm a junior. There is a defiant difference there.

Lunch...lets not even talk about. That's opening a whole can of worms.

AP Gov: I was a little intimated with this class. I know I'm good with history and all but its a college course! You can see where I would get a little scared. Also the teacher handing out 3 different books was a bit more than I could handle. Then the teacher talked about the class and the more he talked the more I couldn't help but think "I'm going to like this class" I think I 'm going to find this course interesting.

Art 1: I'm just taking this for my art credit.

Chemistry: THIS IS A DOUBLE PERIOD!! Need I say more? Being that its a science class who knows how I will do...thankfully there is a cute guy there ;-)

So here to a good year (I hope) One where there is no drama, headaches or C averages. (ha) Wish me luck guys, I'm going to need it!
