High School Lessons Learned
Sammi of Teens Online
It's hard to believe that July has already arrived! I still feel like summer vacation has just begun. The sad truth is that in 2 months, my senior year of high school will begin.
People say that high school flies by. I disagree. For me, high school has been a long process of self discovery and development. Over the years, I've accumulated an idea of who I am, my viewpoints, and lifestyle choices from my numerous diverse experiences and failures. However, my high school years would have been wasted if not for these important grain of knowledge.
First, never adjust yourself to fit into a group. If you are openminded and friendly enough, you will find a group of friends that are worth keeping; trust me. My freshman and sophomore year, I floated from different groups trying to find my niche. It wasn't until junior year when I stopped pretending to be something I wasn't that I found my group of best friends.
Also, find balance. I consistently find myself overwhelmed during the schoolyear due to my athletics, AP classes, and part-time job. It's hard to enjoy yourself when you don't even have time to relax. Be wise about your schedule, you don't have to participate in everything the school has to offer in order to have fun.
Lastly, have a good time. Life is short; enjoy it. The principle of High school is by no means a fun one; you're locked up for hours being forced to learn about boring subjects that you probably will never use later in life. However, if you stay positive, school can be a blast. Enjoy your classmates, your teachers, your subjects. As my principal says: make it a great day; or not. The choice is yours.
Starting my senior year is such an amazing thought. I know I can't wait for the great days to come.
