It will not always be an easy road, but as long as you set goals and do your best in everything you do, you will always be successful. The memories and relationships I built during my senior year, are all things I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life. The day I graduated high school was the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. I will never forget the feeling I had when I walked across that stage to receive my diploma. At that point, I knew that all the hard work and dedication I had put forth over the last four years had finally paid off.
As I grew up and entered high school, expectations for essays were much higher. I got my first paper back from my 9th grade English teacher with a big, fat "D" on the top left corner. I had never gotten a "D" in anything before. She allowed people to go home, make corrections, and turn it in by the end of the week. I went home that night and read my paper over and over again till I could recite it without looking at it.
From the moment a kid becomes of age, the kid has to attend some type of school, first elementary, then middle and finally high school. Going to school seemed like an endless chore that your parents made you do everyday except on the weekends. After recently graduating from high school I decided to attend college. College and high school have many differences and some similarities when it comes to classes, food and people. But college is better because it more relaxed and allows students to have more freedom.
The first day of my freshman year my advisory teacher handed me my schedule, we all revised it and then the bell rang. I was of on an adventure to look for my first period. I had to ... ... middle of paper ... ...use we can 't just wait till the teacher or someone else points it out. Don 't be like the saying “ it goes through one ear and comes out the other”. For staff and administration I advise you to set up a book club.
The school work or course became harder, but I still loved school. I had my first real crush on a boy which was exciting at that age. Fifth grade was a lot of fun but junior high was coming up and that was even more exciting. Junior high was a whole new world when I got there. There were so many kids and so many classrooms.
During a college student’s first year in the dorm, they need to be close to campus so they are able to learn about all the amenities the college has to offer. These include dining halls, the buildings students have classes in, and other unique things offered on campus. Freshmen are able to learn and thrive also by meeting new friends that could possibly be in their classes or even have the same major that the college has to offer. Living in the dorms for the first year is a great way to help students transition out of high school, meet many new people and also learn their way around the campus. Dorm living is a great experience for the ... ... middle of paper ...
When recent college graduates look back at their collegian experience, most claim that those four years are the best four years of their life. Many cite their social life and friends they met throughout college as the reason why those four years are the best they’ve ever had. Knowing this, I was very excited to enter college coming out of high school, thinking that the next four years are going to bring exciting new changes. Although it took me a while to realize it, college did end up being the best years of my life, but for a very different reason. My three-and-a-half American International College, known also as AIC, were some of the most difficult years of my life.
For example, during my senior year in high school, one of my teachers use to call parents after three continuously absences. Also, teachers give you deadlines which always add extra time the day an assignment is due. On the other hand, you have to learn how to manage you time in college. First, you meet with an advisor to arrange your classes considering your needs and time. If you don’t go to class, your teacher will mark you absence and they won’t worry why you did not attend.
Since we were the new kids, we had to assemble in the school hall with the rest of our year to have a talk with our head of year. It was easy to find as it was just through the foyer. We pushed open the bulky doors and suddenly a wave of deafening noise came gushing into my ears. Mobs upon mobs of children were all over the place. Everyone was in their friendship groups from primary school, and we found ours after several minutes of pushing between the herds of kids.
These experiences have been an enjoyable journey from my elementary to middle school years. However, after several years the end of my middle school adventure is coming to a close. Soon my new journey will start as a freshman. Eight grade will surely be one of my most memorable years. It has been an absolute wonderful one hundred eighty days, and I will miss some of the aspects of eight grade—but certainly not all of it.
