Im Soon To Enter High School

Fri Feb 20, 2004 8:06 am

as being one of the youngest A.net members,i am still in middle school.Its my last year of middle school(8th grade) and now everyone is getting forms for classes in high school.Im going to stay in the concert band.Im getting very anxious,since everything i do will haunt me forever on my college application.One of my biggest problems is that Whinston churchill high school(everything in my town is named after someone,btw,who is "whootin"?) is F**KING BIG!i have gotten lost in my middle school(cant imagine how anymore) and i cant imagine the hallway layout in the high school.well hopefully ill get around and get into maryland university like my brother.BTW,Ive started to get my re-occuring dreams of the next year of school.They are starting early and going to continue for a long time until i actually get into churchill.The damn school dreams are weird.One summer,i was confused over the fact that i was NO longer attending classes-kept having dreams of school.Oh well,wish me luck!

Good luck! You'll like it, meet a lot of new friends and such. I remember I was really scared about going into h/s way back in the day, but so is everyone else (even if they don't act like it.) Don't worry, people are there to help you navigate the campus.

Altho,theres a new grading policy next year in this county,and homework wont be counted to your grade.GOOD thing for me-My no.1 enemy in school is homework.I got a nasty habbit of not doing it...

If that keeps up, then good luck in high school, and college for that matter, kid. You've gotta stay on top of the HW till you love it!

Yeah I really wanted to be a pilot but I never did my homework until I was a Freshman. Needless to say I am now a long haul trucker for Schneider National. My dreams went up in smoke. Don't you let that happen to you! Get an education*!!!!* so you have something to fall back on if you're not good enough, or you don't get picked up by an airline.

Good luck. The 1st two years are really easy, the junior year can be rather hard, and depending on how challenged you want to be, your senior year can be easy or hard. My first 2 years were a joke they were so easy, then in 11th (now) I'm taking really hard classes, then next year it's Calculus 2, AP Government, ugh. Though AP government sounds easy!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

All in all, just study hard and get the work done on time.

I've been slacking off with homework since my Freshman year, now here I am a senior and I'm really regretting it. I'll still be able to get in to one of the schools I want to go to (UND or Western Mich) but it'll be less of a sure thing. Do your work, get good grades, and don't get cocky. Also, don't clog the halls by just standing around, it makes you a prime target for bowling.  Big grin

All the previous statements are true, while it may seem an attractive option to slack off and do nothing thought out all high school you will totally regret it when it comes time for college admissions letters and you get them small letters instead of the big envelopes with the schools name plastered all over them. And that coming from a reformed TOTAL slacker.

"My no.1 enemy in school is homework.I got a nasty habbit of not doing it..."

While it may not seem it, homework is a big deal because as u advance thought the grades the Homework becomes more and more important, not only its 10-15% of your grades it composes, but the practices it gives u in that area of study. When I was in more basic classes I could get away with not doing it and still pull good grades on tests, but now that I am a senior I gotta actually do my homework for AP physics otherwise i would be getting D's.

Another plus to getting good grades is the more money you'll get in scholarships at the school. You may be able to get in, but the higher your GPA and SAT score the more money the school will give you, and thats always a plus.
Good Luck with the University of maryland!
And on a similer note if your grades are some what lacking remember extracurriculars, go become an E.M.T. or start your own club at school, TRUST ME, schools REALLLY like that.  Laugh out loud

Don't be anxious, just be yourself, and everything will turn out fine in the end...in HS I wasn't exactly the most diligent student (I was born with senioritis), and everything turned out fine for me...got into my top college choice and having a blast!

Relax!

Well, now I am still in my Freshman year, but so far everything has been great. If you think those stories where upperclassmen beat up freshman are true, don't believe it. Everyone is mostly friendly and are willing to help if you have a problem. So good luck, and keep studying to get to a good college.

High school can be alot of fun, just remember to do the work every now and then. Just remember, it may be stupid some of the work, but yer brain is an amazing thing, and theres ALWAYS room left over for another fact or 2. Hey, maybe one day you can use that piece of knowledge and accually feel smart!

But yes, Do well and make a few friends and you'll have a great time. This is my third year of high school, and believe it or not some days i accually walk out the door here with a smile on my face (even though my average is a 66%, but only because im too lazy to do my homework)



Best of luck

Yea, I'm paying for my blunders of highschool. I have not picked up one book to study from since I was in 7th grade, and it was allright with my parents because I'm a 3.75/4 student...

If you want solid response, this is it:

Don't stay in a class with teachers that you dont like or that don't teach. It will only hurt yourself.
Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.
