the decision

AP classes vs. desires

The important choice between time-consuming knowledge or quick amusement.

As I progressed through high school I noticed each year was busier, with more and more work. Juniors start to work part time while trying to balance the struggles of AP classes as well. Some students can’t handle both so they drop something, either the job or the class; sadly money is sometimes more important to a high school brain than knowledge.

To my family and me, along with many other families, learning is my one and only job; while also helping out with chores around the house.

Since the first chance at AP European History, students have been chasing and hoping for at least a 3 on AP tests. The work is heavy, but totally worth it in the end. Some seniors have four AP classes, five at the most. To balance all that homework is truly a magic trick, and a magician never tells his secrets.

AP students still find time for fun, whether it be fun on social media or hanging out with friends.
Berkeley Gamblin tells me she only needs her music and her art to get through her AP classes.

So far the homework hasn’t buried me, but then again it is just the fourth week of school.
