Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress. After the first period of class, which nothing much really happened but explaining school rules and such. I began to realize that high school feels the same as middle school expect there were four times the students than there is in eighth grade; walking down the halls I can feel eyes of the higher grades scoping not only myself but a majority of the other freshmen knowing we are struggling to find our scheduled classes. Lunch finally comes around I start opening up to other students to make and try to make some friends, I remember lunch and after were my favorite times back then my classes were easy and so chill
I constantly felt alone in my thoughts and the way it reflected on my behavior. I kept to myself way more than kids my age usually did. I had to learn to grow up fast due to my setting I grew up in. It didn’t really help my emotions that I was incredibly shy and absolutely despised putting myself out for people to notice. “Maybe you wouldn’t feel all sad and alone if you tried to make new friends at school,” mumbled my Mom.
I am thriving in school, and even though I don't enjoy coming to school as much as i enjoyed waking up at 11:00am, starting school after lunch, and finishing around three, all while still wearing my pajamas. I know it was the right choice. I am having a great time having feedback from teachers instead of just getting test grades and an unexplained “A-” on my end of the year portfolio. Being surrounded by people, Even if i don't necessarily like them has shown itself to be an extremely good thing in my life. Learning how to feel frustrated but still be kind, and how to work effectively in a group.
My high school experience was a long, frustrating learning experience. I didn’t know what to expect, or what I was getting myself into. Nobody gave me the tools to understand the main focus of each year. I am going to give you tips and advice on how to succeed in high school. I will discuss 9-12th grade along with what to expect each year.
The first day of middle school for me was both terrifying and exciting. I made a lot of new friends within the year. I remember the first day very well. I had woke up at 5;30 a.m. I was extremely tired.
I woke up really nervous and did not know what to do. I was shaking as I had never done before. Today was the last day of middle school. Even though I was afraid I knew I was going to make the best out of my last day. In went through my morning routine and went to Graduation.
They didn’t show any mercy nor a slight of remorse and I couldn’t do anything to save myself because they threatened me and I knew that they could kill me. They stopped when their friends came and I was left lying on the floor. I was too weak to stand up and my vision was getting blurry. Another night of sleeping here maybe next time I should transfer my bed here, I thought then went off to sleep. The next day, I woke up and the whole house gave off a strong stench of cigarette smoke, alcohol and other drugs that I do not know.
High school is the basic foundation of how you will spend the rest of your life, high school tells you whether you will be successful or not. The first day of ninth grade I remember getting on the school bus and everyone was laughing and catching up over the missed time from summer, everyone has on their new shoes, jackets, clothes, and jewelry. Get to school and the teachers hit you will reality, real fast, the first day of school you going home that day with papers and now that was called “HOMEWORK” it was a shocker, I know your thinking “homework on the 1st day?” I thought the same thing Freshman year was a test for
Even now I still question whether I am just being dramatic. Do I truly have depression and anxiety? I can still hear my mother's voice in my head "You're just doing it for attention". She had to leave work early one day, my high school found out I wanted to kill myself. She threatened to take my nail polish away as if that would fix everything.
As I walked in to my new school on the first day I was completely petrified. I have neverexperienced such a scarier thing than walking into a new school half way through the year and being the new girl. I knew nobody not one person. I felt alone in this big world called Middle School. My first day went okay I mean everybody stared at me ask me for my name and I just was that new quiet girl who didn 't say anything.
