When High School comes around, everyone goes through changes to their life. In Sleeping Freshman Never Lie there is a boy named Scott who is starting high school, and goes through many changes with his friends, family, and life. He meets up with his friends from middle school in the beginning of the year, but soon meets new people and has new friends, in this book many of the characters change and experience some of the same things as Scott. This book is a journey through his high school experience, and all the changes that happen in his life during his freshman year of high school. Wesley changed the most in Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie because he switched from being mean to a nice guy, and
He had retained a 4.0 G.P.A throughout his time at Hickman, and was ready to continue his learning. However, his eighth grade year was not going to be as exciting as his seventh grade year, for all he had to do was maintain his goals that he established in his seventh grade year. He played Flag Football in the first trimester, Basketball in the second, and Track in the third, and now is at home writing his “What I Have Learned” narrative wondering what he will write next, for he still has to create an imaginative way to straightforwardly tell his teacher what he has learned throughout his three years at Hickman Middle School so his teacher does not have to search his narrative for a theme, as Brandon originally intended. He will probably add a “Three Things I Have Learned” paragraph at the end to make it easier on the teacher. After he writes that paragraph, he will continue his life as he planned it to be way back in Elementary school, adapting to obstacles, good or bad, that pop-up during his journey through
The author was inspired to write this essay because he experienced college the same way all freshmen will experience college. He went through the same exact struggles that they are bound to go through at some point in it, so he was motivated to help them survive school and stick with it no matter how tough it gets. He consistently emphasizes how magnificent the rewards are if one finishes all of college.
For some people high school is a breeze, but for some it’s not. Sleeping Freshman Never Lie is a book about a boy named Scott and his first year of high school. His brother Bobby was never a good kid in school, so he didn’t have any advice to help him. He had no clue what to expect when walking into school the first day. Scott joined a lot of the school clubs including Student Council, the School Paper, and the Stage Crew. He had his two best friends with him all of the time until they started to go their own ways. When they went their separate ways he made different friends. He met Wesley and Lee, but these were people he would’ve never been friends with before. Lee was known to be really weird, and Wesley was scary to Scott. For someone who didn’t know what to expect about high school, he did a pretty good job handling everything. Bobby changed the most in Sleeping Freshman Never Lie because he went from acting tough to opening up about his personal problems, and he went from making bad decisions to switching his life around.
Starting high school, I was not a perfect student. However, over the past three years, it is clear that my grades have drastically improved. Whether it was adjusting to AP classes or balancing extracurricular activities and homework, I became proficient at handling the twists and turns of high school. By smoothing out my rough edges, I have become a student with distinct goals and a strong work ethic. Having experienced both low and high ends of academic success, my abilities and mindset can be molded to any situation. I am confident that I have the talent, ambition, and the adaptive abilities to become part of a guaranteed
Number one : Your grades are above all most important. Don’t abuse free time, use it to get a little work done then laugh with your friends. Pay attention in class and please please please listen closely to your teachers. Number two: Love your class. It makes life so much easier. You're in a small school, as long as you're not completely weird you’ll fit in. Friends are essential to a smooth ride through high school. Plus if you get behind on an assignment they can help you catch up. Finally number three: Just keep going. High school will not last forever and it will get straight up depressing at some point, but by all means don’t give up, it’s gonna be ok, and you’ll get through it. It’s been a wild ride for me. I wish you and whoever reads this the best of luck and the funnest of
Once you’ve been in school for nearly 12 years of your life you think you know all of the tricks to conquering the school year. When a problem arises you think you know the easy way out of it or the perfect way to avoid it. Some kids probably believe that as you continue on through your education these problems will just simply decrease. As a junior in high school, I’ve come to find that that assumption couldn’t be more false. High school came as a scare to me and I felt that I was the only one going through those typical teenage problems; however, after reading How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, by Paul Tough, I began to gain some of my confidence back.
My educational goals for high school would be to get good grades mostly, and the reason that is one of my main goals is because with grades your acceptance rate is higher to get into a college. With a higher acceptance rate, you get more options of colleges to choose from you aren’t limited to a certain college. For my college goals, they are to get a master's in nursing. Why I want my masters in nursing is because a master gets a higher chance in being hired, because they would rather choose someone with a higher degree in that area of work. Also with a masters you have more knowledge and that is always a better thing when applying to a job.
Sleepless nights, aggressively long hours, and excessive stress is what must be confronted in order to be the greatest. Without, these challenges, dedication wouldn’t be evident and no one, even myself, would be in the positions they’ve obtained. The achievement I am most proud of to this day is the improvement of myself from the little girl who was teased and didn’t know a lick of English, to the young lady, who is the top of her class and zealously represents, her school, family, and community proudly. The triumph to overcome adversities will always set my future goals and the challenges that I will face.
Looming in front of me was something new, a fresh start. Despite being this, it seemed cold and trying, something that sent shivers down my spine. Mixed emotions of uncertainty and optimism had filled my first day of middle school; and as my final year is drawing to a close, I realize that this place-this transitional time in my life- is something that I never want to leave. I created a home away from home, and a family, over the short three years spent learning here. Each school year, from first to concluding, brought new experiences in which have altered my life. These are the things that I am hoping to carry over into high school-my next chapter. Every experience in which middle school has brought leaves me changed indefinitely, shaped for the future ahead.
Upon entering high school, I made a goal to myself: I wanted to become a better version of myself, realizing my own strengths and weaknesses and, ultimately, preparing to be a part of a completely different atmosphere beyond high school and even college. From the beginning, I knew I was going to find a way to improve academically, as a member of Kingsway’s STEM Academy and Superintendent’s List throughout my high school career. However, I would never think that I, as an eighth grader, would ultimately rise above my classmates, eventually being third in my class freshman year and still enjoying the rigor of taking as many AP and Honors classes as I possibly could fit in my schedule. By being recognized and awarded for my achievements, I finally realized that being this type of student, one that strives to do the best and remains self-motivated no matter what difficulties are faced, gives me a purpose as student and overall enjoyment.
It was 2016, and I was finally a senior in high school. Being a senior in high school was something that I had dreamed of since my early middle school days, and at last, I was there. It was the last year in one of my least favorite environments, and I couldn’t wait to graduate and move away from the only place I had ever known. I had lived in the same town for seventeen years, and I had gone to the same school with the same people for thirteen years. I was looking forward to something new in my life. I was most excited for my senior year because it was the year that I was going to choose where I wanted to move away to and what school I wanted to spend the next four years of my life at. As the year moved along, I slowly realized that I wasn’t moving away and that I’d be staying home to attend college, which was one of the most difficult decisions that I ever had to make.
My high school years, unlike the past years of steady achievements, felt much more like a sine graph with ups and downs. To begin with, I conquered my freshman year in a breeze. My easily achievable classes not only earned myself confidence, but also admiration and respect from my classmates and teachers. As a result, I comfortably acclimated myself to the status of a star student.
Yet, the education does not stop at middle school, for high school really puts all the basic skills from elementary and middle school to work as the assignments and the exams become more challenging. We do not only learn about reading, writing, history, and math, we learn about the people around us as we associate with different personalities, and as we see what we have grown up to be and what we want to be later in life. Accordingly, the high school years are a time when teachers emphasize the importance of graduating and attending college in order to have a “succesful future.”
