In TY and need help picking subjects

So I've been struggling to figure out what I want to do in life nevermind LC subjects. I'm trying to keep as many courses open as I can for courses such as Medicine or Arts. I'm obviusly keeping up German as my language as well as Biology as I was good at it and enjoyed it at JC. The question is between: 1.Chemistry 2.Geography 3.Music 4.Business ...in no paticular order. I'm interested in Chemistry and the topics but I'm afraid I wont be very good at it. With Geography I got great grades and I am interested in it but I've heard horror stories of it beingh too hard. Music I studied at JC and found it a bit boring in parts but I compose in my spare time and (because I play trad) I know I'll get the full marks for the practival. With Business I'm good at learnin g big chunks of information but I'm afraid of using that slot instead of using it for a subject required for a course. I'm trying to keep courses open and that would mean picking Chemistry and of the above but I'd like to enjoy my education also. I'm scared I wont be happy with what I'm doing for the rest of my secondry education as I actually do enjoy school and would like to keep it that way, Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

i do 8 hl subjects and business is my extra one and i'd recommend it because you only have to know 3 units in great detail. i also do chemistry some parts can be quite tricky and there are a lot of defiintions you need to know but not too bad. Biology is easy. i do home economics which i would reccommend because its a combo of business and biology but if you havent done home ec for junior cert then i wouldnt.

Music is a good deal easier than most other LC subjects if you already have a musical background, and the course is pretty short. Composition and the practical is a mssive part of music and if you already have experience in that I think you'd find it very easy. I do biology, chemistry and music and they're all doable. If you're interested in chemistry I'd say do it, it's so much easier to study something you're interested in, and it's not as hard as everyone makes it out to be!
