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.
Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. 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.
The very first months of my 7th grade year were tough, as I didn't fully comprehend the language. I felt detached from people, because I couldn't start a conversation neither understand what they were saying. I only spoke to the few people who speak Spanish in my classes, only a few. Every day in class, all I could hear were mumblings coming from everyone, except words a third grader knows. I was taking a Spanish class, a class in where they were teaching my own language, and so I realized I didn’t needed the class.
I used to think that going to high school would be scary, but with all my friends and everything that my teachers have taught me, all I feel now is excited. I want it to be the first day of 9th grade fast, I want to start High School. I know that my friends would be here when I need them as well as teachers willing to help me. So it 's time today to end the second part of our education and enter the third. It 's time to leave behind the middle school facility, say goodbye to the U14 teams and be introduced to JV, and most of all, time to go from the middle school community that we 're familiar with, that we love, and that we are in charge of, and go upstairs to the bigger, busier, and honestly, scarier high school, where we will all be 9th graders.
My plan for academic success is to pass all my classes with a C average. Another plan for academic success that I have is to choose classes that best fit my understandings and personality. Also I would like to get my license as a senior and have a job. Another academic plan for success is to have friends, friends are important to success because if I have no friends I’ll have no one to talk to while I’m working on school work. As well as the fact that I’m horrible at all my english classes, it might be a good idea to get those improved.
The definition of dedication also seems simple, “the quality of being committed to a task or purpose.” To reach my academic goals for the end of the current school year I have to begin putting the majority of my energy into my school work. It is a lot easier to put my focus and dedication wholeheartedly into the work I need to do for school now that Speech and Debate is over. The main thing I need to teach myself how to do is to get home from school and immediately begin working on anything school related, even if it is due in a month. I have gotten in a bad habit of procrastinating or coming up with excuses and those habits need to be nipped in the bud.
This allows students time to rest and get ready to begin their homework. Once, the student begins his homework it is important that he takes breaks on occasion to keep himself awake and focused on the task at hand. All of these habits can be applied to a person’s future career. It is likely that many students will go on to have jobs that require them to put in time off the clock. If a student learns how to effectively complete his or her homework from a young age, then the transition from school to the workforce will be much
I am describing my junior year with the word tutorial because I look at it as a lesson that I did not have to study for, I just had to be ready to deal with anything harsh that was to ever be thrown at me or into my direction. From my junior year, I remember so many things such as being kicked out of my first high school and attending my second semester of my junior year at Euclid High School, making good grades, having a few friends with many laughs, trying to participate in events that the school would hold so that I could be more involved with the school staff as well the student body, helping out with the yearbook class, and having conversations, that will remain unforgettable, with the adults of Villa Angela- St. Joseph High
I feel that to properly understand me you should receive an understanding about my high school experience, my academic mistakes, my long term goals,and how I plan on succeeding at Lindenwood University. I strongly believe that Lindenwood is the perfect place to cultivate my interests into a career and I want to convince whoever it may concern that i will not waste this opportunity. High School was always this vision of freedom that middle school Destiny yearned for. Being a fan of cliche high school show tropes I thought being in high school would be like being in an episode of “Glee”. I soon realized that highschool is not some teenage dream.
We all look forward to the day of graduation and the day we turn our dreams to reality some find it easy and some find it difficult. I remember being in high school two years ago and thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation as to -- whether I should go straight to nursing school or start off at a community college to eventually transfer to a four year university. In life, lots of students come across transitioning from high school to college to become successful in life and to achieve their goals. Some people find it easy or difficult to transition from high school to college. The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college.
