1/2 Credits each for Health and Speech

1 credit of Computer Technology Application

1 1/2 Credits of P.E.

I want to get something that has to do with Computer Engineering.

Hopefully I'll get into MIT :P

Wow that's a hard schedule. What grade are you going into? Personally, I think schedules are more along the lines of personal things, because what you like someone else may not like.

I changed my schedule for 9th grade. Instead of doing Keybording / Comm App I'll be taking BCIS I. Track counts for Comm App and I can practice my ubermicro over the summer.

Looks good, However i am going to give you my AP rant despite the fact that no one likes the idea that humans are experiential learners and would be ashamed to think that someone who has tread the beaten path is tellin you that you are getting screwed because he did.

After taking 4 AP classes they are worthless IMHO. Especially if you are going to take the course in college for your major, you have wasted hard work and 80 bux. You dont take a college level class, you take a boring year long endeavor in order to take a test in order to get out of a college class. School is so much about crunching numbers and so little about learning, every time i hear a teacher say we are taking a test just to get more grades in before the reports are due i feel like that my future is getting comprimised as other countries students are surpassing the US. We care so much about competition and performing that all we go to school for is just that, not to learn.

End Rant

Let me say that i think its a little pretentious of you to be planning out the next four years of your life so gallantly. If you find interest in Computing thats great, its undoubtedly the pillar of humanities future development. I say that you are pretentious because you simply cant be mature enough yet to understand yourself, which is an integral part of high school as you come to a greater psychological understanding and emotional maturity during these years. Just worry about next year, everything falls into place without crying and sweating over it, you might totally switch your perspective. Experience something before you embrace it.

With all that steam out, i hope you do well in High School, do what you want, which is not necessarily what you might want of yourself.

I know how you feel, but don't cry to me. jk. I'm going to a school that was just built with fresh-out-of-the-college teachers. They still have hope for us and will not slack off. Trust me, it's the same with the middle school I'm going to. :wink: (not really)

Joking aside, that's some interesting ranting but I prefer to talke challenging classes so I can show them off on my resume :wink:

This is not my actual schedule. Just a guideline of the classes I might take. :!:
