To be the top of the “normal” and “regular” class or to be the bottom of the “honors” and “advanced” class, which one is worth your time? Are the “advanced” classes worth the risk or should you just take it easy?
Which would you choose?

As we first enter high school we are told that “you should take honors and ap classes.” Even our parents tell us this who hear it from other parents. This whole talk that gives us so much pressure and anxiety of entering high school is really not worth it. We enter high school and take the harder classes, until we receive a bad grade that would hit us hard and leads us to stop trying in school. If only wiser and more knowledgeable people would have told us that IT’S OK TO TAKE IT EASY in high school. We don’t have to take harder classes that would “kill” us in the future. There’s simply no point because what matters is that you should be happy with your life. Here’s a comic we made based of it. Enjoy.

A dilemma I am currently facing. I am afraid. Of failing. Of receiving bad grades. I want to take the more “advanced” classes, but at the same time, I don’t. I am qualified to take them and have been accepted into them, but I wonder if I only met the bare minimums to get in. And the bare minimum usually doesn’t get you an A. All of the work that comes with an “advanced” class also scares me. I need time to myself, without a pencil in my hand that is scribbling down the answers. I want to take it easy and get an A in the normal classes, but it makes me feel like I didn’t earn it. I don’t think all of the stress that most feel when taking a harder class is worth it. I am planning to go drop a couple of my harder classes and go to a regular class, but I fear that the normal class will be too easy to the point where I face boredom everyday from taking it.
