Walking into Walnut Hills High School right now would have anyone thinking the just walked into the middle of a tornado. Everyone you look there are students running in and out of doors, in and out of cars, and most certainly either turning in missing assignments or retaking tests. There is only one way for you to explain all this ciaos, Senior Year, the year that all teens await with so much excitement and ambition and the year that every single hour long study dates pays off. For the class of 2021 this isn’t just their final year at Walnut Hills this is the year that friends separate and head off to their different university to follow their dreams.
I have learned so many things freshmen year I thought I would share some key advice coming from someone who has pretty much seen it all and knows what actually goes on in those freshmen halls. I'm not going to sugar coat this because that is what every other person does when they tell you about their freshmen year. How does that prepare you for high school, it's just telling you a lie. Freshmen year is the first year you finally get to have a little freedom and make some decisions on your own. Be warned that doesn't mean you get to do whatever you want, believe it or not you don't really gain as much freedom that you thought you gained when you go off to high school. I found that out the hard way that's why I decided to write this narrative.
My first year in college has been a rewarding experience. As I look back on my Why College, Why Now essay, I realize that I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about myself. I am proud that I accomplished my goals I made in my first year of college and I exceeded my expectations. I still have the same goal for the future, but I added more goals for the future. I am attending Wilmington University because I want to make my future brighter. Attending college and earning a degree in communication media will help me obtain an exciting job as a professional journalist.
In school, I am on the Huntington Beach High School Golf team. I was the team captain of the team during my Sophomore and Junior years which held the responsibility of organizing games and helping out newer players. During my Sophomore year, I was given the award of being the most improved player because of my countless hours of practicing golf and my determination in getting better. I have also been in some clubs on campus dedicated to helping others and the community such as the UNICEF club and the Random Acts Of Kindness Club. This year I also joined the National Honor Society in hopes that I can get countless opportunities in helping those who need help and helping the community. I find much enjoyment in aiding people when they need it
Going into freshman year of high school was something that hit me unexpectedly. I couldn’t believe that 4 years from then I would be graduating. To me it seemed like an eternity of course, as if I had all the time in the galaxy to relax before things would become more profound such as grades, time management skills, and independence.
Freshman year of high school was one of the hardest years for me. Often I found myself wishing I could be homeschooled, I absolutely dreaded going to school every day. Every aspect in my life was different now, two of my siblings had moved out, my other sister was in college, and there was much more responsibility put on me at home. On top of that the transition into high school was tough for me, friends had moved or changed and the classes were harder.
One of the biggest lessons I've learned is to never give up and that everything in life happens for a reason. Throughout my entire life my dreams have been put down by society, wether it was a coach, friend, or family member. Everything I gain is because of me and only me. When I started my first year of high school, I knew I wasn't ready to maintain my academics, my social life, and my sports schedule all at once. I was completely intimidated by everything occurring in my life at the time.
Exactly one month has passed since school officially started, and I believe that I made the right choice in coming to the University of Wisconsin Platteville. The classes aren’t as horrendous as I thought they would be because as long as I apply myself and focus during class, plus studying outside of class, there is a possibility that I will be able to survive my first year of college. Robin has gone back to her old ways, and has been constantly making sure everything is in a neat and orderly position, which in all honesty is great because I missed her cleanliness. She was extremely stressed due to classes starting, which was why she was starting to become a slob. She was psyched when she learned that her professors weren't as strict as she
In the beginning of my senior year of high school, applying for the right college was my number one priority. I knew that after highschool, I wanted to further my education and go to a four-year institution. However, my test scores that followed me in highschool weren't the strongest. My test scores did not reflect my potential and for a while my test scores use to stress me out in high school.
He we go. Just me and myself now. I can write whatever I want and Mrs. Wesbecher can’t read it. To this point I have wrote about a lot of fun things I have done throughout high school, but that was just the PG version. Sophomore year is when things really began to heat up. One day over at Alex’s we found the key to his parents liquor cabinet. We did exactly what 15 year old guys would do, took some sips and wow did we think we were badasses. Looking back opening the cabinet taking a few sips and locking it back up really quick was quite comical. One night during Sophomore year it was Alex, Cal, and I, Alex drank a lot and we started to walk around town (no license yet). We walked around town for a long time with Alex’s sloppy ass. After a while
