There is one main thing that I think all high school students should know. (There is more than one thing of course, but I know you are already on information overload so I decided to keep it simple.) I don’t just want to tell you to work hard while you are in high school, although that is important if you want to have success in your life. No, I think that one of the most important things that most students fail to realize is how fast it will all be over.
After junior year, I figured, “If I got through the ACT, SAT, and all my AP exams, I can get through anything senior year throws at me -- piece of cake!” Truth is, I find that it’s a lot more complicated than it seems.
I have a long list of hopes and wishes for the year ahead but I will share only a select few. First and foremost, I anticipate reading more books. I plan to read more since I am determined to go to college for English and Communication Arts. Secondly, I hope to grow taller. I am an inch from being 5 feet tall. Thirdly, I hope to befriend more people in my senior year.
The famed senioritis is already beginning to spiral through my thoughts. As I make list upon list of things I need to get done, I find myself succumbing to distractions.
There are plenty of things I’m hoping to get out of this school year. I’m excited about senior year! When I looked at all the past seniors they looked like they’ve had so much fun and I want to experience all of that, too. That mini feeling of being the “Top of the School.” I’m scared because I know it’s my final year and I want to do extremely well but also enjoy myself. I want to accomplish having great grades in my regular classes and in the college classes I’m taking.
I’m really looking forward to this year and the memories I’m going to make along the way. There are so many things I would like to get out of my last year of high school. I want to get the best education I can before heading off to college.
I play the trumpet in my school’s marching and jazz bands. And recently I acquired a spot in the choir and show choir singing tenor. I love to write, sing, and dance. I am also aspiring to be a screenwriter. I also like helping people, and that’s why I am writing.
In a matter of weeks, I will be entering my final year of high school. Just a couple of years ago, it seemed like the time for me to graduate would not get here soon enough. Now reality has hit me about the upcoming year, particularly the start of the inevitable college search.
