Good News for Andrew

It is objectively impossible for him to take all the courses he felt that he should!

Okay, that may seem like a strange thing, but this kid puts a lot of pressure on himself.

He was thinking about three AP classes, plus Marching Band, Jazz Band, Pre-Calc, Economics, and Spanish III. But some of the classes conflict and he has to let one go. And of course there's that thing were there are only seven periods, and that is with the addition of "zero" period.

Interestingly, this seems to make it psychologically possible to consider dropping two classes.

That quiet sound you hear is me sighing with relief.

Although Andrew's more reduced schedule is still a list to make a person gasp.


  1. Let me think back to my senior year of HS...

    AP Enviornmental Science
    AP English
    AP Calculus BC
    AP Modern European History
    AP Computer Science
    Model United Nations

    Plus, Calculus and Mod Euro were held at the same time, so I had to do Mod Euro as an independant study course, which meant one of my friends recorded the lectures for me, I listened to them on the way home, and I did the tests during my free periods. Still got a 5 on the AP exam, one of only 2 in our year.

    I guess what I'm saying is that, sure, he shouldn't overload himself, but it can be done. I still did all the school plays, submitted photographs to the regional contests, toured colleges, had lots of sex with my boyfriend, and got drunk at least once a week. Plus I had a job from 8-5 on Saturdays and Sundays.

    I was really good at highschool, even though I hated being there.
