Experiences change, friendships shift, life goes on. You are on the path to adulthood, and I understand that the situation is frightening and confusing in the beginning. One year’s classes could represent your entire high school education. Depending on the fields of study you are interested in, these next four years could fly by or last forever. Personally, I found this first year to be middle school 2.0, where you are still required to take the basic classes, but there is the option of an additional three or more choices to your liking. Turning in papers is a large majority of your grade in rooms such as Algebra 1 and Modern World History. Speak to new people, there are hundreds of students that could be your new friends, including the upperclassmen. At least interact with fellow peers, I personally have made more acquaintances in my first year than I have expected. Some relationships just happen, like a friend may introduce you to their friends, which could range out really far. Remember to ask a classmate or the teacher for help, because everyone struggles with at least one subject. Sometimes it could be embarrassing, but the question would help in the long run. That’s all the advice that would help you gain a balance on the new school life. See you around next year!
