I remember looking to the left and right of me everyone seemed to be enjoying the first day of school. Everyone including myself showing off our clean new outfits we had bought during back to school sales. Eagerly waiting for the bell to ring; I remember walking around trying to find something to do as I wait impatiently for school to start. Trying to find something I can go and chill I walk over to the school gym, taking a look around me I see our school colors, which are black and yellow. 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.
To watch Janis, Cady, and Damien all come up with and pull pranks without the principle seeing is just mind blowing sometimes. Kids at my school do that once in a while, but, they are going legit here. At least Cady knew who she was by the end of her year. I still don 't know who I am. I 'm a high school Senior, I get good grades, I 'm athletic, I have never been in love, I want to be a pharmacist.
Then we had to do a poster with a photo of us and the position we are running for. Lastly, we had to make a speech and it was my first time public reading. I was so nervous but I had a feeling I might win this, but sadly I wasn't elected. I was sad and I thought to myself that some things weren't meant to be. This was my first attempt to be in Student council and
Ginny, a girl who had just moved into town and her first day of school began. The moment she saw Smitty, That’s when she right away was interested in him. She met a friend named Hally which told her all about Smitty. As Hally and Ginny were walking to their second period, Hally said “ he never smiles, he never frowns, and he never cries.” I think this quote means that Smitty is maybe scared to show his emotions because people might be asking him what had happened over the past 15 years on why he had been silent and not speaking. Hally said that there is something wrong going on with him.
It was a late, around nine o’clock, on Saturday April 20, 2013 when a few of us from Bear River High School decided to go to Senor Frogs to celebrate Olivia’s birthday. Olivia and I use to be best friends back in elementary school that is until we transferred to high school and she destroyed my reputation over jealousy. I didn’t care much for celebrating her birthday, however, I had been in love with her boyfriend Tyler ever since I laid eyes on him freshman year. Nonetheless, Olivia made sure he never knew who I was. I went to every school event, every pep rally, and every party just so that he would notice me, but in the end I always went home unnoticed.
“I recognize you from Mrs. Litle’s class, you were making fun of me for being an eighth grader while you were a freshman” she said back. “I’m sorry, I don’t recall—” I began to say. Suddenly, it all began rushing back, the rain outside the window, the noise in the background, the girl I had seen a year and a half ago—it all rushed back to me. “Oh my god… it’s you” I stammered. I know you too.
I started Ross in 7th grade after attending an all girl’s Catholic school in New York City. As a 12 year old, I arrived to Mrs. Crane’s class overworked, uninspired, and a pretty lousy student. Maybe it was the boys in the classroom, or it could have been Mrs. Crane’s somewhat endearing bipolar personality, but I think everything changed for me on Maya Day. I started to like going to school. In my seven years at Marymount, I’d never woken up excited for the day.
The beginning of my freedom began in such a strange way that I believe that it could only be because of God’s intervention that I was freed from my slavery. The true beginning to my Exodus was after I was accepted into St. Paul’s High School. After I was accepted I was very excited about this and I told my two former friends that I played video games with and it turned out that they did not get accepted. After receiving the news they were initially hopeful because they did not receive any sort of letter yet, so assumed that they would get accepted into St. Paul’s as well and we were all excited for going to school at St. Paul’s. At the time, I thought that we were the best of friends for the few days
Whoever said, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me," must not have gone to high school. As a high school cheer captain, I have developed a vocation of leadership, compassion, and confidence. I walk through the halls of my high school with my head held high. However, I haven 't always been the confident young woman I am now. One day, during a free period my freshman year, I had to go to the bathroom.
“Ambition is the path of success, persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” When I commenced high school, I did not possessed a dream nor a goal, I just went to school due to the fact that my parents requested it to me. Therefore, I was not an active academic student, I just went to class and entertained myself with my classmates. At the end of my freshman year, I was ranked as number 49 of my class, I did not even knew what the definition of “G.P.A.” was. Moreover, at the end of the year there was a celebration for the top five and ten percent of each class, the “Honors and Achievements Awards Ceremony”, when I walked through the stage to obtain my medal, I felt so proud of myself. However, I did not knew what was I proud about; proud of losing time
