With a year full of hurdles I was set to overcome, senior year did not seem like the right time for me to defeat my dragon. My introverted qualities have grown tremendously over the course of my life due to traumatic events I have been forced to face on my
At Last, I’m a Senior When junior year ended last summer, I felt like I knew exactly what was coming my way-- after all, I watched three different groups of my friends go through senior years of their own. It was finally my turn to experience senior year, something it seemed I had known about for years, and I felt like senior year would be easygoing and uneventful. Now, it has taken just a few short months to realize how incorrect I was. If senior year has taught me anything, it is that one never really knows what comes next for them, even if they have a good idea. The monumental highs, as well as the deepest of lows, have kept me on my toes throughout my senior year.
I do not think senior year has been turning out like I have always thought of it as going. I have always thought of my senior year being the easiest and most fun year of high school. Yes, I have had fun, but it has not been easy. I have been put through challenges already that I know will prepare me better for college.
Losing friends, meeting new people, first job, first car, boyfriend, getting my license. Throughout the last four years of high school I’ve experienced a lot of new things and learned a lot on the way. I remember walking into school on the first day of freshman year; I was thinking that these are going to be a very long couple of years. I was wrong; these past four years have gone by so fast, so I guess my dad was right when he said they’d fly by.
My senior year has gone by so unbelievably quickly. It had been only four years ago when I first stood in front of the school a mere freshman. Throughout the years I gained a new experience that either made me a more global citizen or better prepared as an academic student. This year has been no exception and I feel ready enough for what’s ahead.
It was the hardest year of my life, but, it is also the most memorable because it has been teaching life lessons like telling the truth or, make friends who won’t use you. The most important life lesson I think I have learned is to never give up on life even though it is got you down. I hope next year is a lot
First Hour So far, my senior year has been pretty good. I’ve been maintaining my grades and turning things in on time. The start of my senior, to me, has been wonderful. The class I like the most is my first hour co-op class. The class is Culinary Arts. Anything involving food can keep me excited. I know it sounds bad saying that, but you can’t live without it.
Christmas arrived during my first week home after my discharge from the army. I had been stateside six months, and when I woke up, I felt like I lost my marbles. I mean I wondered if I was an addict, an alcoholic, or insane.
Sophomore year was extremely difficult for me. You know how most people go through a rough patch at some point in their life? Well, that was me all of Sophomore year, everything just seemed too big and scary to deal with, and so I basically put everything off. The guidance counselors always use to say when we were going into high school that we would need to stay on top of things before they started to pile up. I just thought that they were just being dramatic to try and scare us into doing our work, but they really weren’t. By the time I realized this, however, it was a little too late, and I was faced with two options; attend summer school to regain the credit that I had lost, or face my peers when school started up again and be two credits
It's impossible to think about things that have significantly impacted my life without considering my mother's diagnosis with cancer. It has changed the way I approach nearly everything in my life, and has led to other significant experiences. She was diagnosed the beginning of my Sophomore year, so I've had to balance home and school obligations nearly my entire high school career. I had to take responsibility and start acting more maturely, whether I wanted to or not. My mother suddenly couldn't do many things she used to be able to do, and as my father travels every week I had to step up and fill the void. Through doing this, I've become a lot more independent, and gained better clarity into my priorities and what I want out of my life.
Senior year has been bittersweet. On one hand I’m glad I’ll be done with high school. On the other hand though, I’m not quite ready for adult life. Senior year has probably been the best of my four years in high school. I liked getting more involved in school this
My freshman year summed up in one word would be growth. I mentally and academically grown to the person I am now. The transition of middle school to high school was exciting in many ways but extremely terrifying. It took me a couple of weeks to memorize my schedule. Getting around the school was quite frustrating too. Thinking back into freshman year, I’m shocked at how much I have changed and how different I see my surroundings. I thought that it was going to be the same drama as in middle school but it turns out everyone here just go their
What the Word PLAY Means to Me. Senior year has been great so far. I got my first job as a paid intern for the City of Sacramento’s Parks Department, I earned straight A’s my first semester, received a new phone, and turned 18. All of this is great but it doesn’t compare to what I learned and experienced during my senior project. I felt as though I learned so much but there is always something more I could do and learn.
Senior year: you never see it coming. Before you start high school, you are told that the next four years of your life will be the best times. You are also told that those same 4 years will go by faster than you expect. Going into highschool I never expected it to go by fast. I thought these amazing four years of my life were going to drag on forever. Now I realize that is far from true. I am now a second semester senior and the time clock is almost to zero. Joining orchesis was one of the best things I could have ever done in high school. Being involved in something makes senior year that much harder. Everything you do is your last. You know you're a senior when it is time for you to make the senior chant for show.
Sophomore and junior year basically felt like two years in one. Just like freshman year, I was the new kid on the block. My dad got sole custody of my brother and I and drove through several states just to get us. I was mad at first and I hated Tishomingo, and all I thought about was being able to move back in with my mom after sophomore year was up. But by the time second semester came around, I was able to make friends who I thought understood me, and I no longer wanted to move. Eventually the year was over and it was Junior year in the blink-of-an-eye. Junior year was my best high school year which included me joining band for the first time, dating the love of my life, and finding out who my true friends were.
