I graduate in less than a month from now.
Believe me as I concur with the group that High School goes by really fast. Much faster than you think. Its no walk in the park like in JUnior High. You have to learn to adjust in this quick paced environment and keep up at the same time so when post secondary comes you won't feel like a grade 8 or 9 kid but it will set the ground for adulthood.
So be on your guard, and don't let your guard down in academics or there will be some troubling times ahead.
Some of the manditory things recommended that you undergo while in high school life. Firstly, choose the right courses, the courses you choose in your first year can greatly affect your grades and your decisions for the next year.
Secondly, do take some option classes like CTS of Fine Arts. I chose to take Design Studies and Communication Technology and they were not only easy marks, but fun fun and more fun.
Thirdly, keep your social life active.. Hang out with friends, go out to malls and parties, drink a variety of beer or other 7% beverages, get a girlfriend. (that part I failed
) , high school from what I hear is the best time to basically experience casual relationships by dating many girls and see how each suits. From that you can in the future narrow down to girls/women who meets what your looking for and you could be able to tell just by looking and doing simple conversations.
Also, take something outside of school, whether its sports, band, a club or some sort, or fine arts like dance, singing, or music. Another important thing, get a job.. Start early to save up and work Part tiem during school season.
There is however one drawback to all this. STRESS!! It bugs you and you won't like it, but you'll have to adjust and get used to it at times.
In my senior year I got hammered bad. A Full Semester of Course Subjects all within the Pure, or Advanced type of course levels, plus work, plus Piano, and of course social life and aviation. I had to put my flying on hold for now over a year because the load was killing me but I plan on returning to the skies on my DA20 Katana when slots open up in my life.
The first semester was horrible as I had quizzes and tests every week! Let alone all the other crap I took. I will confess to you guys that not once have I slept earlier than 12am during my school year so far. Except like holidays or breaks. On Average I went to bed at 12:30-2:30am.. During December and January things got worse as preparation for diplomas and mass tests/projects were imminent. I pulled an all nighter about 3 days in a row for one week in January.
Another problem are Acnes and some wet dreams. Yes Yes I raise my hand up in shame that I had these.. UNfortunetly the acne still remains.. It kinda got worse, stupid ass genes and oil. Keep the face clean, and KILL the acnes at ALL
COSTS. I think I may need to see a doctor again, spray some gamma rays on the face,jk ;a girl will probably faint if she tries to kiss me on the cheek. Also keep the bed sheets clean and boxers or banana underwear supplies in the plentiful. Chances are your gona look at a substantial load of pr0ns, and your probably gona like it depnding on preference (straight,lez,gai,hentai,weird stuff) and picture a hottie in your head while snoozing one night and things will start to get frisky in fantasyland.
Then your hormones/T'ones start going crazy and you start feeling a little tingle tingle tingle in the (_)_)||||D region and all hell breaks loose. Learn to quickly cover up your sinful crimes and make sure you control these urges cuz the last thing you want is for your ma or da to pop in one morning to see their sleeping kid pull an Exxon Valdez on the bedsheets.
The thing is you gotta make sure you control yourself and prioritize what is most important(ORGANIZATION) to elude stress. ALso excercise and fresh air would help. Eat well, Fruits, Milk, Vitamins, Calcium and proteins will really make a difference for overall performance. ANd once you get 80 and 90s on your tests, you will feel like a million bucks. Even having a girlfriend can't surpass this feeling.. for now..
Next month is another story.
Bottom line, be yourself and plan your life as at this point of time, it is slowly running out. College or University is the ultimate goal. To do well in HS
will make it so that you can pull thru these post secondaries without having to worry about dropping out thus increasing your chances of reaching the pot-o-gold of success!
GOod luck and hope life in High School goes well.
