So Academic

AP Calculus exam this morning.  It was a bit harder than I expected, but I don’t think I did too bad.  Hopefully, things will turn out as great as they did last year with AP Chem.  AP Bio exam this coming Monday.

Then, I went to this ceremony where all the valedictorians and salutatorians from public schools in my county were recognized.  Yea, that’s right, I’m the valedictorian!  Got a problem?

Ahem.

Shoot Me Now

Max digital zoom. Too tired/lazy after tennis to get up and take pictures.

Now, I’m writing a short paper for calculus.  Regardless of length, I don’t think words belong in calculus.  Someone shoot me now.

Uniforms Cannot Eliminate Individuality!

That was one of the biggest concerns when uniforms became mandatory for our district; students were afraid that they couldn’t show off their individuality.  Nevertheless, I did find many students who have taken the liberties of accesorizing their shirts to make themselves more distinguishable.  Or at least more fashionable.

Anyway, this has been the best first day ever.  I just feel like all my classes are going to be fine, even though I didn’t get the art class that I wanted.  I hope I’ll feel this way for the rest of the year.

Here are my first impressions of my classes:

  1. Sociology H – This was the alternative to the art class that I wanted, which had a conflict with another class that was more of a priority.  Many of my friends are in this class, and I do think this is an interesting subject, so I like it.  The teacher seems cheerful, and I think the class will make you think.
  2. AP Calculus* – Ah, this was the ultimate goal of my mathematical career in high school.  I’m looking forward to learning in this class, difficult or not.
  3. Lunch – Not a class, I know.  My lunch period is the earliest of the day, and I sit with many people that I know, but many of my closer friends have a lunch period later in the day.  It’d be cooler if I were there.
  4. AP Biology – This class is packed with work, especially from all the summer work that I had to do.  I don’t know if it’s going to be too difficult, since I think it’s just mere memorization, but I know it’ll probably demand the most work.  I’ve always favored chemistry and physics over biology, so I’m hoping that I’ll gain interest in this subject soon.  The teacher is funny.
  5. English 4 Honors* – Every English class I’ve had seemed to have become progressively harder.  Since my classmates and I are seniors now, we all expect that this will be the most difficult one, especially since last year’s English class was quite challenging.  We can only imagine how hard this one is going to be.  But this English teacher made the class sound so simple, as if it were going to be a breeze.  I believed her during that time, but, of course, my classmates and I aren’t going to buy it all the way.  We’ll see.
  6. Business Law 1* – This class probably has the most kids out of my schedule.    I was falling asleep during the introduction, so I don’t know how I’m going to fare in the class.   Hopefully, it’ll get better.  We get to participate in mock trials in class.  I’m not really sure how to feel about that.  However, I do like the fact that I have the class with people I don’t normally have classes with.
  7. AP Italian – Ah, I know this is going to be a fun class.  Many of my friends are in here, and the teacher is so cool.  Our previous Italian classes have always been pretty laidback.  That’s why my friend and I found it humorous when we realized that this class is actually going to be AP-level.  Our teacher talked about speaking in Italian in class as if we had already mastered it!  That’s crazy.

*air-conditioned class.  No one should underestimate the power of the air-conditioner.  I can’t believe how many classes I have that have an A/C.

A Small Stone Used for Counting

The entire day, I was trying to complete my calculus summer assignment.  Pages and pages of math problems that mainly concern algebra.  It was a very long assignment, but at least I’m getting it over with.   Though it may not sound fun, I had plenty of distractions in between.

I’m sorry, Michael, for such a boring post.
