I thought at first that not taking AP European history was a mistake and I thought I was missing out on a good opportunity to make my college apps look better and challenge myself to be a better student. However, now…
After I’ve heard from friends, there have been benefits from my decision. I don’t have to stay up into the early hours of the morning doing homework for AP Euro, stressing out, studying for a test, or just trying to not die in all my other classes. Even though I thought I missed an opportunity, now I’m content with my choice.
I’ve realized that I’m probably not going to be all too confident with many of the decisions I’m going to make in high school. But, once you decide, there’s no turning back and there’s no backing out. You just have to deal with whatever you have chosen for yourself. Even though I know that some of the decisions I will make within the next two years may not be the way I want them to be, I realize that I’ll have to be content with my decision and be confident that whatever I decide is part of what is meant for me to do.
Btw, if you have people taking AP Euro in your class but you’re not, you might get to watch some Parks and Recreation during class. Just to inform you… (:
