How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.

My mom had always told me, “School first, sports later.” I have fallen victim to not putting in time and effort, and my achievement was either not how I wanted the outcome to be, or I didn’t achieve anything at all. As a high school student, I know grades are of high importance because they can shape your future for you. Being aware of this statement, I know I have to take school even more seriously and put in more effort in order to obtain satisfactory grades. I believe that time and effort are imperative in order to achieve our goals and accomplish what we want. For the past five years I
“What do we live for if its not to make life less difficult for each other?” Many of us students struggle throughout High School with parents getting divorced, loosing a loved one, teenage pregnancy, and family issues etc. These obstacles shouldn’t get in the way of continuing with life and furthering in our education and future. No one has it easy that’s why being a mentor for students my age and younger meant a difference in the world. Making it a little easier for students not to always see the bad was my goal. Motivating them to achieve great things and to overcome the obstacles life brings.
The transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. The 3 reasons why the transition was a big change for me was because I don't have classes with my friends, I don't have effective teachers, and my curfew was extended when I entered high school. Having to adapt to this change has been hard for me, but slowly I am getting used to it. Having different classes from my friends is one of the reasons why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me.

Middle School to High School In middle school, one thing that I thought of high school is that it wouldn’t be much different than middle school. I was told a lot of bad things about high school, people saying “just wait until you get to high school, everything gets a lot worse” or “you think it’s hard now? Just wait.” When I was in middle school, I was told as well as thought that high school wouldn’t be any different than middle school except for it being harder academic wise. One thing that I would want the current eight graders to know, is that high school isn’t as bad as people set it out to be. Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad.
Ever student looks forward to graduation. Senior year is the year most students start planning for their future.
