Choosing electives to fill up your class schedule is something that most teens come up against at some point. There’s nothing you necessarily have to take, but you need to fill in this missing spot somehow.
For me, it was always tough choosing a class that didn’t look like the easy way out on a college application, but also wouldn’t require that much effort. No one wants to end up doing more work for an elective than for a required class. It just doesn’t make any sense.
Maybe you choose a musical elective, as a lot of students do, and get to participate in after-school concerts and other fun events. I remember my school choir was always taking awesome trips to their performances.
Not to mention the songs that you get to sing. Like this high school choir from California that did an incredible mash-up of “The Sound of Silence” and Simon and Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair.” It’s so good.
Or maybe you choose to take an exercise class and get super fit. I just hope you have it a little bit easier than this 1960s gym class.
That’s definitely more difficult than anything I ever had to do in phys ed!
