When I first started in high school, I had the intention that it wouldn’t be any different from middle school so I didn’t try as hard as I should have in classes so my grades weren’t as good as they could have been. It was sort of the same way at the beginning of this year but I fixed it quickly and now I only have one D when in 9th grade, I had more than one. Now that I know how easy it is once you start to pay attention, my grades have been going up a lot, and high school has become a lot easier for me. There are still some subjects that I’m just not good in, like science for example, but I still do all my work to try and keep a descent
The beginning of the year started of rough as we started writing our first essay. I had no idea how I was going to write it at all. I struggled and struggled, but I started to get the hang of it, or well I thought I did when I got the essay back i had mad a 64. I was only one point from passing it which was still a bad grade but like I said I have never been good at writing. Although I was not expecting a good grade, I still wondered what I had done wrong.
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.
I enrolled in college not knowing what exactly to expect and with many doubts but by taking that gigantic leap out of my comfort zone, my life has changed drastically. In high school, I was never the type of student to strive for A’s or to be on the honor roll. My siblings were the ones who did great in school with minimum effort but I struggled and often became discouraged.I remember vividly telling my mother I was going to drop out in the ninth grade. I thought I would be stuck at a warehouse job but now I have goals and dreams, all because I took one
Everything is not as Bad as it Actually is I believe to always consider every possible outcome of life and not make judgements too easily. This all started about a month ago, it was the middle of summer, school was just about to start and I was very nervous about starting high school, along with being excited for learning new things, although I was mostly scared about getting a bad grade. As the days approached, many of my friends and I discussed of how we were all scared for our first week, scared of homework, tests, essays, and all sorts of frightening things. We all were eager to see how high school would be like. Time went on through the summer, and school was there before we all saw it coming, I’m sure none of us were welcome to waking up at 5:30 AM five out of seven days of the week.
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
Sometimes I wish the class room were as simple as me being on the field knowing what to do . I tried college without sports and just relying on my knowledge to help me transfer to another school . But it didn't work out too well , my first year of college was brutal ; school just didn't feel like the correct path for me . It was the spring semester
But that really did not have much of an effect on me. I was excited. I would begin a new chapter of my life in a new school, surrounded with newer and former classmates. I was mostly excited about how my classes were going to go. I hoped that I wouldn’t receive an insipid teacher that would bore me to sleep.
A time where I have faced with a challenge was the beginning of my freshman year at Gahr high school. Going to a school in which I really did not want to go to, I was faced with challenge of not having old friends to be able to socialize with. For the first few weeks of school I had almost socially limited myself to other people. Not budging to make new friends at a school in which the number of koreans and even asians are low I was always alone to only one or two of my golf friends. As a person in which socializing face to face with a person as important I started to slowly sought after ways to make new friends.
I now feel bad for my teachers because I now understand I was a real pain in the bahookie. At the end of freshman year, I started to realize that I needed to clean up my act if I wanted to be successful. I would relate my freshman year like traveling thought that mountain’s ups and downs on my trip. It started off fun and exciting, but the ups and downs came up real
Senior Fall Pathways Portfolio High school my year of success, potential and goals. For the past four years of high school, they have not been what I expected because I expected something more challenging and difficult to graduate. I also expected to experience things such as involvement in school activities. To not be categorized as your level of our understanding because that meant the high level students couldn’t really have a connection with the low improvement students. For example I’m not that high of a performing student but I would 've loved to work with one that was to develop their skills.
It has been about a year since I first met Winn Dixie. I started going to school, and Stevie and Dunlap are both in my class. Dunlap is fine, but Stevie is not. He always gets me into trouble. Because of that, I don’t think I will get the student of the year award.
