Freshmen Year

     I’m finally in high school. Actually, I’ve been in high school for about 7 months. I was really nervous thinking about going to high school.

What if my teachers don’t like me? What if I don’t pass my classes? However, when I finally started my freshmen year, everything seemed normal.

It was like middle school, except with more people, more clubs, more sports, and more of everything. The one thing that set this year apart from my

middle school days was the workload! I doubted my middle school teachers when they told me that there would be a tremendous amount of work in

high school. That being said, the work is manageable.

     Now that I’ve learned the ropes of high school, I’m hoping my sophomore year will be smoother and more fun. This year has been fun, but it also

has been draining. Maybe I’ll try out for a sport or join different clubs. I might even buy school lunch. But for now, I’ll stick with my PB&Js.


Walking to School

        At first, when I used to get dropped off to school, I always wondered what it would be like to walk to school. I had walked to school before, but I was usually accompanied by my brother. I wanted to know what it would be like to walk alone.

        My opportunity came soon. My family and I moved to a different house, and my school was nearby, so they decided that I could walk by myself. I was VERY excited!

        The first couple of weeks, everything was really great. The sun was shining brightly in the morning, the cars rushing by, and beautiful flowers were in bloom. Then after the pleasant few weeks, winter had come. Everything seemed so dull, walking got tiring, and it was really windy. After that came the rain. My parents decided to buy me a poncho, which was humongous. Not to mention a very bright shade of green. Eek, I had to run to school and back. It was difficult with my backpack =__=”. 

        There were lots of things I didn’t think about when I wanted to walk to school. Time to time, I miss going home in a car, but there are lots of pleasant things about walking to school. I’ve seen lots of new places, built up my patience and came to understand a little bit more about planet Earth. /First post [:
