These last four years have been all right but I didn’t really involve myself in school activities. I just focused on my classes and grades. This year I changed the way I went about school. I studied each time I had a test coming up, I studied at school on my free time, at work and at home.
The best advice I could give is to stay focused. There are three groups but you can really only pick two. Social life, grades, working, I picked grades and working. Many people get stuck in the little drama that is around, there’s so much always going on and drama makes it so much harder to focus on everything else.
There’s going to be a lot of things going on at once but high school really isn’t something to be scared of. It is harder than middle school but you’ll learn to manage and get used to it.
Each year you probably are going to get to a point when you give up, just push through and remember it’s for your future and all the little problems of high school will go away. Don’t worry about what people say or think of what you’re doing or will do in the future, it’s your future.
My plan after high school is to start at Tri-C and take my basic classes. After my two years I hope to have graduated with a science degree. I then hope to transfer to Cleveland State and finish with a nursing degree, continue school to specialize in midwifery.
