To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
All I wished for was to be back at my old school. When I walked through the doors of my new school, I was immediately scared. There were so many emotions going through mind, and I didn’t know what to expect. I was so ready to not give my new school a chance, but I saw other kids that were nervous because for some it was their first day of middle school. I worried for no reason because I met several friends and realized that I liked my new school better than my old school.
Now, looking back, I feel silly for almost throwing it all away. Life would be an even greater struggle without high school. No diploma, probably no College, Definitely a lower pay rate and less likely I was to get a job I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So now, I tell myself every single second I feel the self doubt, “Don’t give up, get through the day with a smile. Show the world what you are made of, and finish what you started”.
Many say high school life is one of the most difficult times of a student’s journey, but mine was both challenging and exciting to cherish. I had stepped on my first day of eighth-grade class feeling the butterflies warm up my little self. I could still vividly remember how terrified I was of failing and disappointing myself. But as I come across this path I took, I had faced many ardent obstacles that had positively pushed me out of my comfort zone. Nothing could beat out the moments when I unraveled new horizons in learning academically and growing personally.
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
The biggest mistake I've made was forgetting about my happiness and putting someone else's happiness before mine. In your life when a mistake is made you might not realize it till long after the fact, I didn't realize till months after when someone came into my life that to this day makes me happy. I realized my mistake and saw how it affected my family life and my friendships in a bad state. It took time from my family that I will never get back and friends from me I needed at the time. Now that it's over I see my mistake now and realize that you can't make someone happy without you being
It 's the situation where you’re about to end a time in your life that’s making you unhappy, but as soon as the time comes, you remember all the good things and balk at ending it. Named after how everyone is suddenly so nice and loving at graduation when in reality, you didn’t like or care or even know about half those people. This not only applied to people, also applied to things. for example when you 're about to throw away your useless stuffs. but suddenly it seems to be useful somehow.
I wasn’t afraid to tell people what my opinion was about them or their ideas. I wasn’t afraid to find common interests with new friends and share my experience stories with them. More importantly, to me at least, I wasn’t afraid to talk about: my depression, my anxiety or even my bipolar and the feelings of ups and downs that those ‘illnesses’ had put the emotions and mental state I have through. “Everything changes when you arrive at HIgh School,” and, “it’ll be the best years of your life,” I’ve even heard, “you’re going to miss being in school.” I will tell you that while I will miss the three friends I have here in High School, I’m never going to miss the resentment and self hatred that followed my soul all through the first semester of Freshman year that I’m still working through.
I just hope that I am able to keep up and stay with this group of individuals because I am not sure I would be as successful if it weren’t for the bond we have developed these past nine weeks. I once heard some of the best friendships you will ever have will be made in nursing school and I can definitely see that already with a few. I am sure by graduation day we will all be crying tears of joy and sadness since we did it but will no longer be together. This quarter has been a rollercoaster of emotions, mostly good, and I look forward to what next quarter brings. Hopefully my brain can hold all this information, I feel like it grows 2 sizes every week!
To never give up on my dreams, even when the odds are against you, keep moving forward. Her motivation is the reason why I didn’t give up after my junior year of high school when everything seemed to fall apart. I became extremely depressed with my life. During my junior year of high school everything came crashing down. As my brothers enjoyed the college life.
Never would I have thought that I would be working two jobs as a senior in high school but I am. Although I do get tired, exhausted and overwhelmed I do not give up. I push myself, sometimes I may over do it but, I always try to be the best person I can be.
Make your friends want to impress you in the right way. My school years have been filled with those statements and I still use them to this very day. Although everyone has had that moment when they blamed their wrongs on someone else they still have very interesting and happy memories. I am excited to share with you my 2nd and 3rd grade years. Then my 5th and 6th grade years and end with a
