What language should I take in high school?

My high school offers Spanish, French, and Latin. Currently I'm signed up for Latin, but now I'm starting to regret it. Here are the pros and cons.

Spanish- I've been told that this is my best bet, because jobs will hire you, you use it more, its easier, etc. But personally, it doesnt interest me that much. However, if it really does help with jobs, I might consider it.

French- This seems pretty fun, but I doubt I'll use it that often. Is French really that helpful?

Latin- I figured Latin would be the best, because a lot of languages are based on it, including our own. But I've heard its a lot of work, and I don't know if its worth it.

So, if anyone who took any of these languages could help me out, it would be much appreciated. Thanks. :)

Additional Details

Haha, yes, I get that Latin is a dead language, and I wouldn't use it to talk to people. But yeah, I'm thinking of taking 2 years or so of Latin then perhaps Spanish. Since French doesn't seem useful in the U.S.
