Some fears and concerns regarding life after High School that have come to mind are how difficult the school work will be and how much of a toll it will have on me, how I will make time for my studies, hobbies, friends and family, and etc. Attending college may make it so time is an issue, however as the article “Why Go To College?” claims, “A college education can challenge you to explore and broaden your interests, attain your goals and meet some of the best friends you’ll ever have” (4). Although attending college will have its difficulties, it is deliberately challenging and can be very beneficial and positive. It is important that when making any decision whether it being personal, in regards to life choices, or whatever else to always consider benefits and disadvantages. College personally has more benefits that outweigh its disadvantages and thus the reason that I will push my fears and concerns aside and continue on to achieving my
Middle school, however, was a great challenge for me. As middle school began, hard working and social life had shaped a hefty problem for me. Middle school brought forth harder work, and attending a different school expunged almost all of my previous friends. I began to work much harder as a student, because I felt that it was important to receive superb grades. However, this affected my life with friends in later years.
My middle school experience has been filled with many ups and down. In fact, one could even say that my middle school experience has been pretty mediocre. I dealt with stress and made stupendous memories throughout my years here, but while being in the middle school I have truly discovered who I really am. Middle school can be a challenging place at times, but I have really discovered myself and morals that are important to me. In sixth grade, I was dealing with the transition of being a new middle school student.
Whenever I was younger, I never realized that school was so important. I was at a stage where I did not care about school and gave up on everything including my grades. Until one day I knew that it was not a good decision and school is very important. Early mornings, and leaving my house for seven hours to sit at school and learn things is kind of crazy. Junior High was never my favorite school.
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.
Because it is the most effective way for children to learn to read, through practice. We are still using a 19th century system as education I don't believe we as teens/kids should be forced to go to school. Mostly due to the fact that, school isn't teaching us how to live, in fact school, just makes us feel more intimated, because people look at the fact that 'we're still learning'. We shouldn't be taught that society is everything we need in life, society is made up. People will fit in to where they feel they should fit in to, it's just nature to be were your truly meant to be.
Also I saw the difficulty that my parents were having for not going to college or having a low level of education. Growing up my parents started to tell me “ that if I want to be successful you have to go to school”, and still I would not listen to them because to me it was absurd to keep going to school after high school. Life as a child is very different then the life of a teenager, young adult, adult or someone that is about to retire. As a child I just want to play around, and just have fun, and continue on the path that I wanted. Yet as I got older especially middle of my junior year in high school, reality hit me in the face, it felt like being hit with a baseball bat, I saw that I wanted to become somebody big in the Army respected by all soldiers,and people, and for me to do that I have to become well educated, have a good personality, and most importantly love God and this country.
In fact, I started to dread going to school the next day because I felt like an outsider. It wasn’t until the first semester was almost over that I started to feel like I was beginning to fit in. I started hanging out with people, enjoying lunch, and loving school again. And why? All because I didn’t feel like an outsider anymore.
I had succeeded and that’s what mattered to me. I did exactly what she said I could not have done. As time passed, I learned to let go of negatives and to keep that inner sense of self-worth. Due to the challenges in primary school I made up my mind that I will pursue that path of becoming a teacher so that I can help others who encounter similar challenges. My secondary school experience was a great improvement compared to primary school.
High School Graduation The beginning of the Highs School year,was a new experience for me,because of begin alone in the school without knowing nobody, not knowing the language and have zero knowledge of the academic level i need it to have in order to graduate, on the mid senior year of high school,i got a call from the counselor Mr.Calume,he told me that, in order to graduate i need it to pass 4 states exams that can be only due 2 times per year semester,and i was in my last semester of high school,so the chances of me passing those test were low for me.
