By the time she looked up at the clock it was 11:28, she had two minutes, Armani had no time to make sure she had everything she just took off running leaving Tristan mid-sentence as well as leaving her cap behind in her haste. As soon as she arrived home she was once again in the clothes she had on before her godmother had appeared. Her hair was a mess again and her makeup was all gone, but she had no time to worry about the missing cap for she knew Jaelyn would be walking through that door any second and she still needed to finish cleaning her room. She quickly finished cleaning and went to bed to get some rest, as she lay in bed she turned on her phone and could see that her social media accounts were blowing up with the search for the mystery senior that had Tristan going crazy. The minute that he posted a tweet that said he had her cap almost everyone in the entire school had replied saying it was theirs. This made Armani laugh and thinking nothing of it she replied with a comment “wonder who’s” with that she went to

I was told that this, my junior year, would be the easiest year of my high school career. And no, they were absolutely wrong. It was not just school and grades that I was concern about either. I had other things to worry about, things like, driving, clubs, friends and family. I however had no idea that it would be this difficult. Throughout this school year I have learned many things; like the value of sleep, whose really your friend, and that although very important, grades are not everything.
It was the beginning of freshman year. I didn’t know what to do or how to react to the people and classes in high school. I was so nervous and shaken about what was to come this upcoming year. My fears of getting lost in the hallways, being late for class, or not being in a class with someone I knew were looming over me. I was in some advanced classes that my other friends were not in. I was scared about what people would think so I felt the need to change who I was.
I faced piles of trials in my life. I stayed consistent and busy, and I always had something on my plate. Freshman year trying to keep my grades up was one of the main struggles I had to deal with. There were different ways to deal with the situation I had and everyone has their own way of handling it. I had processes on how I would handle my work, which I call “Keys”. The keys I had in dealing with my trials are with time, patience, and prayer.
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.
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.
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
Allie had not known the event was going to be so large, she wished she had worn the other gown, the one she made for the upcoming May Day Ball. She grabbed her cousin Eli’s arm, wondering where they went from there- there did not appear to be a clear path to go inside- she wondered if they’d spend the entire event standing there in the yard. Shortly, a footman arrived and told them to follow him. They followed him along the portico to the double front doors- he led them inside to the foyer, and then told them to wait there a moment. After what seemed an hour to Allie, but was probably only a few minutes, he returned and led them through to the
The meaning to this quote is remembering the past and wanting to go back either to switch the past or live in the past once again. To quote really relates to my high school journey because there was a point where I didn't care for school, and I slacked off by not turning in assignments, and not doing homework. If I could go back in time to freshman year I would make better life decisions. I would take my classes seriously.
Sophomore year definitely had a lot of ups and down that will influence my decisions in the future. One of the most influential class I had was English. Especially managing my time. In English, we learned to analyze text in the book and it allowed me to pay more attention to the meaning in the context rather than just reading the words. English class made me think a lot and this honestly the first time I learned numerous lessons. In the past I have always waited to the last minute and procrastinate, but in English the first semester, we wrote a lot of essays that required time. the main reason I would procrastinate is because throughout middle school and freshman year, we hardly had any homework and so I was very lazy and reluctant to do work.
Senior year was bittersweet for me. My mother finally agreed to let me drive my senior year. A high school student parking a lot was like the cafeteria room where everyone sat with their cliques. A day before my first day of senior year I was talking to my older brother about how I can finally drive to school. He agreed how it was a big deal and said “Since I don't drive my car that much, you can drive it until you get your own car.” My brother’s car is not just a car it is every high schooler’s dream car. It is a exotic two thousands and fifteen space gray tinted windows BMW seven fifty Li vehicle. It has four automatic doors with light brown leather seats and tinted sunroof. He just had two rules, don't let just anybody in his car and ask
A few hours later the front door burst open. Both Zoey and Ciara were crying, Elizabeth was quieter than a mouse. “You almost killed us Zoey! Damn, why do you have to drive so crazy!” The girls walked downstairs trepidatiously and peeked their heads through the railings on the staircase.
The beginning of freshman year was a rocky one. It all started on the first day of school. Mia was nervous, yet excited.As well as being anxious that she will forget her schedule or that she will embarrass herself. Mia went to her first period and noticed that many people from her old school were here. In that first class Mia was confused about the whole lesson. For example, Mia was having trouble with Algebra and she was tensed about English even though that is her best subject. Finally lunch came around, and Mia was thrilled to see that all her best friends were there in the same lunch. The only problem was that they all changed. They were acting very weird around her Mia felt awkward. Mia had told her best friend Lela, that everyone was acting strange. Lela told Mia not to worry about those little things.
Well what can I say I made it… made it to Senior year, and soon my 4 years in high school will be over. With no doubt this school year has been hectic, in trying to find what kind of person I'm going to become in this world. Whether the decisions and future I set out for myself will make my parents proud or disappointed. In my opinion this year has been a life changing experience and it made me realize many things as I get ready for college. From August all the way to May academically I have grown and challenged myself more than I ever could and I’m proud. I’m proud that I didn’t give up when there looked to be no hope left, proud that I kept to my word in maintaining good grades, and proud to have an opportunity to prove to myself that I can
As Bella walked down the stairs, Alistair walked in through the front door wearing the same clothes he’d worn yesterday. Bella shook her head, knowing exactly where he had spent the night. For the last couple of weeks Alistair and Eric had been partying so much that even Ben was starting to get worried, but he really couldn’t say much. They all knew both Eric and Alistair were just trying to make the most of their time together while they could, especially since Alistair couldn’t transfer to a school in New York without losing his scholarship.
"Nothing, just having a nose at what everyone is doing, Some of the girls from work went out to a club that has been taken over by new management and they have put some photos on here. Are you all ready now?" Sarah asked Ellie who just nodded her response at her "ok then, let's go see your boyfriend"
