This morning I had woken up two hours late, but lucky for me school was delayed two hours so it was like it never even happened! I basically spent my morning on the wordpress forum and trying to tweek a couple of things on my blog, I also posted a video early this morning (WATCH IT!) School was good, nothing exciting. We talked about the Prince by Machiavelli in Global Studies, then I had French II where for once I remembered all my homework and I understood everything the crazy lady with red hair was saying (remotely), Biology we took notes on RNA (blah!) then in English class was fun we got to read Macbeth and we joked how Macduff was telling Lady Macbeth that he couldn’t tell her what happened (that Duncan was murdered) because just telling her the horrible news would kill her; the reason it is funny is because (if you have never read Macbeth) he is talking about the same woman who planned the murder and also said if she promised she would bash her own babies head in as it was feeding and smiling up at her. A little dramatic irony for the day 🙂 Just an average day at Governors!

We also are planning our course surveys for next year. Our school works a little bit differently, we not only pick our classes but we also pick our schedule. The way it works is you get a course catalog and a sheet to fill out all the classes you want to take next year. Then a couple weeks later you receive a master schedule of all courses offered and what period they are offered. Then they throw all the rising seniors in the gym and they basically have to run like maniacs and signing up for the course that they want. But some classes fill up quickly so rising seniors are pretty skilled at planning their course-choosing and they make however many different versions of a schedule they would like and they plan which classes they sign up to first and all that jank. Then they do the same for rising juniors and sophmores (rising freshman coming from 8th grade do not choose their schedule).

I think I have figured out what I am taking: Global Studies II, AP US and VA History, World Lit II, Chemistry, Algebra II, French III, Latin I, and Health/Gym. I am going to plan my schedule like it is this year, having all my hard classes on one day and all my easy classes on another. A lot of people tell you to spread it out, but when that happened to me I was constantly at the same pace every day. This year I have a lot of work on even days, but my odd class schedule I can chill and finish up anything from the day before. If I had it my way I would like to have all my history, french, and chem class on one day; and have algebra, gym, latin, and english on another.

Anywho, I just had dance which is the class that I assistant teach, and I am about to start doing history homework (if my teacher would upload it to the website!) and then off to bed around 11 tonight. I have lots to do 🙂

    Which of these 2 do you consider to be a day of “easy” classes?!

      the second day. Math is easy, same with English because I love it. Gym is a joke, and Latin is my only hard class on this day. I put the classes where I am going to have the most work loads on my even days. History classes tend to have the most work, and then Chemistry is the second with the most work, and I didn’t want to have my languages on the same day, so I put French on here too. I am not quite sure which will be harder for me French or Latin? French III may have a lot of work compared to French II, but Latin is the hardest language at our school soo… I may switch those. Have my two history classes, Chemistry, and Latin I; then have Algebra, Gym, French III and English
