And there's my brand new biology class, Microbiology. That class is interesting. It's mostly lab-based, and the final exam is a practical. For the final, we will have to identify an unknown organism in a Petri dish, and write a paper about how we did it. The correct identification is actually only five points of the grade. That's exciting, but a bit scary, too. I hope I enjoy biology labs as much as I like my chemistry labs, or I'm going to be in for a bad time. It's been a long time since I did my AP Biology labs, and it's hard to remember how I felt about them. I want to take Microbiology (and do well in it), so that I can take Human Infectious Diseases next year.
My English class this semester is Shakespeare II. All juniors have a required research paper this quarter, but it doesn't sound bad at all: 5 pages, 3 secondary sources. I have to pick a sonnet or play, but with the amount of other writing about Shakespeare, I hope it won't be too hard to find plenty of sources.
With my new schedule, I get out of school at 2:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, which is convenient. However, on Tuesdays, I have class from 8-4 non-stop, which is tiring.
