(I have no good title for this)

First of all, I do apologize for letting my blog sit idle for so long! It's been a busy week already, and I'm considering what classes I'll take next year, etc. Hopefully, things will calm down soon!

Just here to share some news links with you people... :)

This is pretty interesting - not surprisingly, less minority students are taking/passing AP exams. This directly affects me, seeing as how I'm a minority, and I do take Honors/will take AP classes. I'm one of the few minority students that will do this - Latino and African American students seem to have a harder time succeeding, perhaps because my school is predominantly white... not being racist, there. Just making an observation as a minority.

Also, here's an inspirational CNY story. It was great to read about a teen overcoming their disabilities and using their talents to their advantage.

This stuff is really interesting to me. But moving on, I'm debating about what classes to take. I'm being recommended for all Honors/AP, but I don't know if I'll have time to do this. I definitely don't want to be overwhelmed, but at the same time, I feel the pressure to look good for colleges and succeed. Tough stuff. I'll figure it out, though.

Well, nothing else to say here. Thanks for reading! Check back soon!
