AP World History

Standard

AP World History is this course that I decided to take my Sophomore year of high school (this coming school year) and I have so many regrets. Because I chose this course, I was required to obtain the book The History of the World in 6 Glasses. I have to write a long ass essay on it. Normally I love reading, but this book seems so BORING. I want to get it over with but I can hardly read a page without feeling bored to death.

Do any of you have tips for me?? I know that I need to read this book, but that’s just not enough motivation to help me through it.

I have until July 31st, because that’s when I go back to school, and that’s when my essay is due. I don’t know how I’m going to do this. I also have to study a world map for a test that we’ll be having on the second day of school. Joy. Seems like I picked a fun class…

UPDATE: I have been reading more of the book because I go back to school on the 31st of this month and I need to get this done. It’s still pretty boring and dreadful to read, but I’m about halfway done. However, the essay format is ridiculous and I have no idea how I’ll be able to do this. I need to write 53 paragraphs… Ughhhh

I Opened A Book

Standard

I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.

I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.

I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.

I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.
