Most of the time being a freshman isn’t as fun and you’re looked at as young and immature, but that wasn’t the case for me. I knew a lot of the upper classmen and had older siblings that showed me the way. For the most part, my social life in high school was pretty solid. I coasted my way through and didn’t take anything serious. I had a really cool counselor that I was
As a freshman the transition was some what difficult for me. These are somethings I think would be good to new for the middle schoolers that are tranistioning into highschool. First keep organized. I can 't stress that enough because if you don 't you will lose things really easy and become a real mess. Another thing is a personal opinion but I don 't think that going to your locker every passing period is a good idea.
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 way I felt about my city and my surroundings had a strong correlation with the way I felt about myself. Prior to this realization, my dreams and aspirations for the future were minimal. I performed well throughout elementary school, and I was moved up a grade because my reading and math skills were advanced. However, when I began attending middle school, the new atmosphere combined with all of the new awareness I gained as I started transitioning from a child to an adolescent ended up in me lowering the expectations I had for myself. Once I regained my optimism and saw that Oakland is not what people say it is, I began seeing life in an optimistic way as
How does my learning impact my learning experience during high school? What I reflect in my learning experiences that it was not bad, but I think could have better because if I weren 't paying attention than I think that I know I was able to do something that allowed myself to make my parents proud. And how in my junior years I was able to pass all of my class by making all effort that I have ever done by not going with my friend, doing my work asking questions of something that I did not understand also I would be more focus than I ever been during my high school
Boys when they get bullied or something bad happens they just keep it to them self. If they tell anyone they are not going to feel any better than just anger. One 16 year old boy he had a girlfriend they were together, after a moth of being together she said that she didn’t love him anymore. “You fell very sick but you just keep it inside, you don’t want to tell it to anyone ales. Then
In the duration of my middle school years, I maintained excellent grades, except I had just one issue that held me back from a satisfying life. That issue was the fact that friends came very hard to me in my middle school years. Before my struggles at my middle school, Trafton, I had a very productive social life in the Elementary school I attended, Roberts Elementary. Here, it was very easy to make friends and have a great social life, since no hard work was required as a kid. Middle school, however, was a great challenge for me.
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
Looking back over the past four years, I recognize a distinct shift in my personal goals. In middle school I thought I was a good student because I was quiet and studious— I got good grades, didn’t get into trouble, and kept to myself. Over the past for years, I’ve learned that my personal value is not dependent on what I do for myself, but what I do for others. Freshmen year, I accidently stumbled my way into my first leadership position, freshmen class vice president. What followed was an intense sense of gratification for doing something for the benefit of others.
There was a time in my life where it was a bad time, but, it was also a good time. I was trying to play games at my old school, Roosevelt Junior High School. I got caught, and what came with it, is troubling . When I got Home my Mom and Dad greeted me with a bunch of things, saying I shouldn’t be doing that, and this and that, but, what also came with it is, my grades dropped, it was horrible, I just couldn’t keep up with all my homework.
“This says you got 98 out of 200,” his mom quietly said. You could tell it killed her to tell him. “So I failed, and can’t get into a college?” he said fighting back his tears. He looked up to try to stop the tears from flowing, but it didn’t work.
We've all hit the point in our lives when fart jokes weren't funny anymore. This point was when we all thought we were mature and the kids that still made fart jokes were immature. What mature meant to me in middle school was not making fart jokes. What mature means to me now is going through a life experience that your attitude, gossiping, the responsibilities you take on, your views on life all change and you are a different person after that particular event. From first grade to sixth grade I went to Riverside Preparatory School with my two sisters.
When I was in high school, times were very difficult. I didn’t have many friends and I had issues that I had to deal with. I never understood why I didn't have many friends. I would talk to people and try to start a conversation. But, most people would shut me out.
Freshman year, what an awkward time in my life coming out of middle school with my poor grades I promised myself and my parents I was going to succeed while in high school. Did I though? My grades for sure improved but I still was not putting in as much effort as I should have been. I struggled to be able to communicate with all these new faces and in a completely new school but even outside of school struggled to talk to new people.
