School was exactly how I had imagined it to be while I was in grade school. I had the privilege of having recess, early lunch hours, and most importantly, naptime! The day I started sixth grade, my whole world seem as if it flipped upside down. I was no longer at the top of the “food chain”, school was way more stressful, and I had, in fact, found new talents within myself.
Junior year. My junior year I realized things about myself that I hadn’t previously known. Things I’ve never done before and things people thought I couldn’t do. Situations I thought I wouldn’t be in and there I was. Junior year, I did it.
Ah, Junior High. Those awkward years between sixth and ninth grade when I had no earthly idea what to do with myself. I remember them well. I had to get used to being in a school that wasn’t an elementary school, the way older kids were acting, and how things were in my new school.
I have been involved in the Youth Council for about one year. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Being in the Youth council has really taught me a great deal and has given me a new perspective. Before joining the Youth Council I was seldom involved in any community service activities outside of my school. I was fortunate enough to find out about the Youth Council through a family member and quickly signed up to volunteer.
My sophomore year at Buena High School has had a large impact in my life from the sports I’ve played, the people I met, and the knowledge I have gained. This year I played tennis and rode mountain bikes, both of which were for the school. In doing these sports I have met many amazing and talented people that will forever have an impact on my life. Also there is the knowledge that I have gained from my teachers and fellow peers that I will use in the following years to advance my education further.
When I first started my first semester at my community college, I was enthusiastic to initiate a connection with the student body. When ‘Club Day’ was hosted as I walked around the tables I saw usual clubs that a college would have such as robotics, math club, charity club, however there was not a club that focused on Earth conservation. I still appreciated the other clubs, but I saw the opportunity to create a new club that would focus on my interest in conservation and sustainability.
A time that I changed my mind about something was when I was deciding what car to get when I turned sixteen. I always had my mind set on a small car. For as long as I can remember my parents have always told me that if I keep my grades up, focus on school and do not get in any trouble then when I turn sixteen I can pick the car I want within the budget they give me. This was an exciting time for me all of my hard work had paid off and it was now time to pick the car I wanted. At first I thought I wanted a small car (elantra, focus) because it would be good on gas mileage, easy to drive and park. My family took me to test drive an elantra and I really liked it. The one drawback was that I did not feel very safe in such a small car. So I started to think maybe I should look at something bigger. My parents have only big cars, my mom and SUV and my dad a truck, so I was use to driving larger vehicles.
Once cheer try outs for my senior year rolled around it was hitting me that I was a senior. We had cheer camp and I realized that was my last ever cheer camp for cheer in high school. Once school was starting and we had to get prepared for football season it really hit me that I was a senior, I wasn’t quite sure how to really take it. I didn’t think me becoming a senior would come so quickly and so fast. I can remember homecoming week like it was just a couple weeks ago, now that went by super fast and I didn’t really realize it till about a month ago. To me time fly’s by when you’re having fun, senior year is probably been the best year yet. I’ve had more memories my senior year than probably any other year. When basketball season came around
Being a freshman is the hardest of your four years in high school. Have you ever been pressured to be the best person you can be? This is how my year was as a freshman. Freshman year was the most different I never thought I would of found my way around the school when I first started to go there. Freshman year was the best year throughout my years of high school and it was the only year I had friends. During this year I had a lot of anxieties which dealt with me thinking I’m gonna be alone and not have any friends throughout the year to support me through the whole thing. Also, I would think of the pressure of not doing good in any of my classes so I would think it would affect my GPA in the future. The transition from middle school to high school was a different type of thing to do.
My sophomore summer was ok I really didn’t do many things besides play baseball and mow hay. To begin with I was really excited for baseball to start because it’s my favorite sport, but by the end of summer I was ready for it to be over. Mostly because I started playing baseball in the middle of March and didn’t get over until the end of July.
It was an typical day at school those ordinary days were I would go through my classes, meet with my friends, and so on continue with my day. I was somewhat content with how life was going I had good grades,a healthy relationship with my family, and I had great friends. Well it was that ordinary day when I felt betrayed by one of my closest friends. I had began to have this routine with my friend to meet with her at a certain location everyday at lunch, one day I waited for her and waited and came to a realization, well she maybe she was not at school today. Later that day I found out that she was in school inclusive she was hanging out with other girls. Friendship has always been important to me and I have always been much forgiving to many
Over my years attending high school I feel like I have grown personally and academically. I have learned to ask for help when needed and to actually get the help I need. When I was a sophomore I really did not mind getting a C in my classes but not having a C in any of my classes doesn't feel good. I now check up and stay up to date with my grades more than before. I feel like this year I have realized how important it is to do the best you can and achieve good grades. I would say that a C would really affect me but I would not try the best to bring it up.
Usually in highschool it's your friends that make it worthwhile those are the people that you remember and the people that make it even more bearable but for me it's the opposite.
Junior year has been my most challenging year because it was a time where I balanced academics, work, and extracurricular activities. My typical days consisted of high school classes, cheer practice, diving practice, and college courses in the evening or working. My goals were to be in the top ten of my graduating class, earn a letter achievement in diving and cheer, and to save enough money to purchase a car for college. It was a time of adjustment to handle all these activities and complete the tasks excellently. I pushed myself by keeping my goals in mind every day. In the end I know that hard work will pay off. I changed how I used my time and used it more efficiently. I completed homework at school so that I could put my undivided attention
"Happy Birthday", my mom screamed out and scared me the morning of June 9. But it was surprising and nice of her since she wished me before anyone else. It was my eighteen birthday and it was my day. While looking out the big windows in my room, I thought to myself, I will do what satisfies me today, but wasn't quite sure what? I didn’t receive any calls from my friends, or other relatives. Nobody was home either besides my mom with whom I can’t make plans because she got her own work to do. It depressed me because it seemed like this was going to be one boring eighteen birthday.
