Middle School Is Not Like High School

It started off during your 8th grade year. Winter just left the earth and spring was on its way. I could just feel the warm air starting to hit my face, but you still had to keep your body covered the right way because of global warming in this generation. You could get sick just like that knowing that it’s still some type of sickness flowing in the air every day. By the time we start to have our free days were we have fun days, cook outs, and more to celebrate our last year in middle school.
Then came the day of our graduation, the day I walk across the stage feeling like my life was ready to begin. I feel so good about myself when it came to this day. Just to think I was about to walk into the young adults world I felt 18 even though I stared high school at the age 15. Right before I could think of anything else my name was called. My hands were shaking and my life left like it was changing every step I take towards the principle to receive my certificate. When I got it I had a big smile on my face but what turned my smile upside down was the fact that I got it and walked away it just didn’t feel right anymore. It made me feel like this was no longer an immature moment for me no more, it’s time to get serious so I cried not with sadness but with happiness.
Before i knew it summer came and it was time to put on my shorts and crop top and go party like a teenager. The only thing that made life go by fast was when I found out summer goes by fast too and before I knew it; it was time for school shopping. People that I knew and was in higher grades then me told me 9th grade wasn’t going to be bad just stay focus and be careful with whom you hang with and I did, until the middle of my ninth grade year and thing got wild. I started skipping class when I felt thought my grade was fine and get mixed up I the hall with my home girls after lunch. We would play fight all the time and eventually go to class. Something told me I was doing wrong and I felt bad about myself. It made me think about the day I walk across the stage my 8th grade years and how I felt scared. When I came back to my senses I went to class every day for now on and stop hanging with some of the people that never went to class. Surprisingly I passed all my classes and I thought to myself I can’t make this mistake again and I pushed forward and put the negative be hide me. I kept telling myself that I will do better next years and promised myself that I will focus more on school and not friends because my mom always told me your friends do run your life like you do and it made me stay to myself . It also made me want to do better for my last three years and all I could say to myself is I am going to graduate and go to college.

Life As A High School Student


Life as a High School Student can give you a lot of thoughts on life. Some can be really fun to think of and some can put you in situations that make you want to just give up and drop out, but there’s always a way to pull through all the bad thoughts; it’s how you handle the problem. My life as a high school student was interesting in many ways. I mean times got tough for me but for some reason I found my way around. Life as a high school student was interesting in many ways. I use to thing the only way you can get through this young adult hood is to dream the right things. They had so many choices to get the dreams your but talking to someone who understands what I’ve been through has been my choice to help me get through high school.

It all starting with 9th grade “giggles” everything was making me nervous and I didn’t want to go, but knowing that my big cousin and big brother was there with me I felt protected. The only thing that made me nervous was getting to know the right people and how hard the work would be in my four classes. But eventually I got use to things until the middle of the school year thing got harder for me and I felt like giving up. I started playing around and hanging with the wrong crew, but realized how i was acting so i got myself together before I had to repeat the 9th grade.

Before I knew it I was in the 11th grade because my 10th grade year went by smoothly and fast. I joined a sport (Track & Field). It was some to do and to put on my resume. Speaking of resumes there were a lot of thing I had to do to get myself ready for the 12th grade, the last year of high school before I did that I had to get through the 11th because things felt like it was being pushed on you knowing that your time was almost over. I had to keep my grades up, start thinking about what colleges to apply for, have a resume and an essay for college, but most importantly find out what your meager was going to be. I can honestly say your 11th grade year will be you hardest and possibly worst year of high school unless you know what you were doing or you kept your head straight throughout your whole years but all I can say is high school was confusing but yet exciting. It gives me the experience that I needed and help me understand how responsible you really have to be because once you out of high school you’re on your own.
