My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
“You will always be my best friend,” words that seemed so unbreakable at the time. Middle of my freshman year, and I sat in history, right next to my so-called “best friend” not saying a word. People always say that your friends in high school change, but I certainly did not think that would come true my freshman year. Everything happened so suddenly, one week we were hanging out, and the next, we were trying to avoid eye contact in the hallway. I understood that friends fight, and we had fought several times, but this one had a different vibe to it, I could tell things were changing.
My first year of high school wasn't so bad, but I’ve learned a lot on how to be responsible and to care about my grades, because no know will be there to tell me to turn in my work, or to tell me what i'm doing wrong and that taught me a lot about becoming an adult. My second year of high school wasn’t the best for me when first tri started I was doing good, I was turning in my work trying to get passed the days, After first tri got over I started to get really sick, so I didn't come to school for a couple of days. When I came back to school I was behind, therefor I had to stay before and after school to get caught up. After I gotten caught up things were going good. During one of our breaks my stomach started to hurt, so bad I had to go to the hospital to have my appendix taken out at 1 o'clock in the morning.
INTRODUCTION: Credibility: So first off, my names hayley bemis but everyone calls me bemis, even all my teachers. Attention getter: In middle school, I would always run with the boys in track, which is weird because I never did well in middle school meets, but I was always as fast as the boys. When I got to high school I was so scared that I wasn’t going to be fast at all, but I was wrong because I was one of the fastest girls on the team and was on varsity all 4 years. Thesis & Preview: Those were probably some of the best years of my life. I want to share with you how track and other sports have impacted my life.
I decided changing my school as I thought that would be the only solution. It was my first day in the new school and it also was my first day in the middle school. I was so excited and nervous. I was afraid of meeting new people and living in a new environment. The waited day came, yes it’s my first day in my new school.
It all started when I was twelve, I was walking to school and I had got into a fight with another kid. It was neither of us had won, It was stopped before anyone else got hurt, we were sent to the office after the fight ended. When my mum and dad came to the school i was picked up and taken home and I was grounded for the rest of the year then I later when I got a bit older we moved to Oklahoma and I was walking to the junior high building to turn in a slip of paper saying I won't fight people, just so they would let me even attend the school. So one day I choose to ride my bike and help this cute little girl. She had red hair and she was being bullied, so I walk over and say “looks like a class F group of bullies” so I grab the biggest one and I say “I can't fight people because this is my one and only chance to go to the high school so none of you guys will stop that” so I push them down.
Certainly, it was still a good one, but it wasn’t what my family expected. But if you ask me what school I preferred, it will be the school I learned, graduated from, thanks to it, I went to the high school that I want. It looked like I was getting back to the path my family chose but contrary to their prediction, something else happened. At that time, I was about to turn 17. I used to study Chemistry quite well but in the second year of high school, the curriculum became increasingly difficult, and my tutor quit her job.
One of the major setbacks were that I was adjusting from high school to college in a short amount of time. Also another setback was that I did not know what to expect on my first exam at all. I was also getting used to new teachers and new teaching styles. Another setback was that I could not remember most of the things that we needed to know from high school that were going to be on the exam. The ways that I overcame all of these setbacks was with time.
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.
