They said senior year would be a breeze. To avoid such a horrifying prospect, I decided to indulge in AP-C Physics, which, as they say, is one of the most challenging classes the school has to offer. But, as the Chinese proverb goes, "The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials".
I am not taking AP-C Physics simply because I enjoy torturing myself with hard problems. In actuality, I hope to be able to tackle hard problems step-by-step. There is always a logical process to everything, and that idea alone is why science exists. So, knowing this, I hope to increase my arsenal of processes this year.
AP-B Physics was my most challenging class thus far, but also my most interesting one. The idea that this sometimes chaotic world can operate in such mathematical order is still pretty incredible to me, and I took this class to further understand the relationships that exist in the world around us. It's quite nifty.
I'm definitely nervous to solve more complex problems than I ever have before, using calculus. Calculus is still some obscure, evil concept to me. And on that note, I'm excited to be able to utilize it and learn something that I will hopefully use throughout college and beyond. To quote another proverb here: "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over...it became a butterfly", and I look forward to becoming a beautiful physics butterfly this year.
