Phisiology: Good class. It will be very hard, but I will learn how to study and I do have a few cool people in my class to make it interesting. Only problem it's first period ewwww. 4/5 stars
Seminary: Sucks. I have only like 3 kids in the class that I even want to talk to, let alone look at, lots of new faces and an OK teacher. 1.5/5 stars
Geo/trig Honors: Cool teacher and an ok class, lots of sophmores and one junior who I don't get along with very well. Teacher seems cool and laid back, but I don't like math very much. 3/5 stars
English Honors: This class is pure awesome, favorite class by far. I love Mrs. VanOrden and she may be related to me. She is very friendly and I have lots of good friends in that class. Lots of homework though. :( 4.5/5 stars
Marketing: Very few people I know in the class and the subject is kinda boring, but interesting. The teacher is VERY boring Mrs. Carter is quite monotone which makes the class more boring than it seems. 2.5/5 stars
Economics: Taught by the same teacher as marketing, but TONS better. I know TONS of people in the class and the subject is awesome. I love this class!! I can't wait for what we do later on in the school year! 4/5 stars
TA for AP Spanish: Pretty cool class, dropped out of AP and became TA for the same teacher and period. I know tons of people in the class and it will be fun being with one of my favorite teachers in the school. (we get along quite well) I do have one junior in particular though who I don't like very much, but with most of my friends in the class it kinda overcompensates. 4/5 stars
AP US History: White is awesome, my class is full of sophmores and there are only 5 juniors/seniors in the class. Amanda and Francesca are in it though which makes it all the better. Plus a whole bunch of kids in my ward are in it too. 4/5 stars
Over all rating 28.5/40 pretty good for a junior schedule.

- concerned solely or chiefly with one's own interests, welfare, etc.; engrossed in self; selfish; egotistical.
- independent, self-sufficient.
- centered in oneself or itself.
- Archaic. fixed; unchanging.
Self-Centeredness is a common personality trait. How come being self-centered is such an annoyance to me? I am not a selfish person, I get what I can get and earn what I want. I've never been told "you are the best" "you are the smartest" or any of this pish posh crap. My parents have taught me to be greatful for what I have and to care about other people and their interests.
I hate people who only care about themselves. I will bluntly say it. I hate it. There is a whole 5 and a half billion other people in this world. Do people really want to be around somebody who cares only for his/her self when people ion Africa are dieing of starvation? I think not. Now I ask myself this question: Why are so many poeple are self-centered pampered princes/princesses? Is it because they are wealthy and think they are better than other people? Is it from the pressures of living up to your parents expectations? Or is it because you think you don't neede anyone else in your life, your already smart/good/cool enough to live life happly for the rest of your life? I believe is a mixture of all of these questions. I am completely opposite of all those questions. I like how I am. I hate being pampered, I'm quite independent in that matter. I hate wealthy, snotty and stuck up people. (I have the misfortune to know a few around my neighborhood and my high school) I can't stand parents that think their kid is higher in any of these catergories: Academics, Socially, and being "well rounded".
After doing some research I've found being self-centered is good in some situations, but the way I've seen self-centeredness I'm very much against it. In my opinion we must accept everyone's opinions and not just consider yours as being "the best" or only listening to you, we must all listen and care for everyone and not just ourselves. The problem is we cannot just change sombody's personality. Life needs to go on and there are trials in life that we must just try and ignore and move on. Those are my two cents on self-centeredness. Albin0 out!
