Back To School: Advice From a Senior

Back To School: Advice From a Senior

Jul 25, 2016, 7:28:23 PM Life and Styles

Hey there guys! So this week I am back at it with blogging! For those who are curious, I had a great time at camp and made some great friends and it was just all around good to kind of get away from the hussle and bussle of life. So yeah! Anyway, for this post, I wanted to start getting my back to school posts out there, because I don't know where you guys are from, or when you guys start school, so I thought I would just start now! I have done one of these posts in the past, but now that yet another year has passed, I figured I would kind of retouch on this subject. Let's get started!

--Don't Get Flustered!--
Over the past 3 years of going to high school, I have learned that it is both easy to get flustered with the homework and the socializing, and everything else, but it's not all that bad. It actually gets better every year, and over time, you learn who to not take classes from. Which is nice, because then you can get nicer teachers and not those meanie ones.

--Try to Accept That You Won't Always Be Perfect--
This is still difficult for me to grasp, which is okay. But I myself am very big perfectionist in everything I do, whether it be homework, karate, blogging, or anything else along those lines. So sometimes, when I get a bad score on a test, then I always ask if I can retake it.... to be honest, I  become a bit of a pest when I get bad scores. Which is okay in some situations, but not in others, so while you are going through your years in high school, go ahead and at least attempt to you know accept that you just can't be perfect 24/7 (We are all human!)

--Your Friends Group Will Be Constantly Changing--
Not going to lie, even now, some of my friends that have been with me from freshman year are straight up kind of starting to drift away and I'm okay, and kind of sad about that because I love meeting new people, but I also love making deep connections with friends. But, I have noticed, that with each of the extracurricular activities that you might sign up for, that you will obviously become close to the people in there, and sometimes, you may loose friends that you've had since like elementary, or middle school. And it is totally okay for that to happen because when you join new groups, your true friends and the people who genuinely want to be with you will accept the fact that you aren't into the same things as they are.

--If You Try, You Will Succeed--
I know so many people that just don't even try in their classes, and I always think like "Bro! What are you doing??? This is a free education and you are just straight up throwing it away!" So I guess what I'm trying to say is that, you know, the education you get from kindergarten to the 12th grade is free, you don't have to pay for it and if you are one of those people who really have that drive to go to college, go you! That makes me proud, and know that colleges look at all 4 years of your grades in high school so when your going for that college degree, get the best grades that you possibly can, knowing that if you actually try in everything you do, you will get those good grades and your teachers will help you, because from my personal experience, if you actually try to learn what your teachers are telling you, then when you get stuck, your teachers will be more than willing to help you. I'm not saying that you know, if you don't try had with your classes your teachers won't help you; but I do know that teachers are always more willing to help you if you try.

--Be Yourself, Don't Change Just To Impress Someone--
I probably already mentioned something like this, but you can never stress it enough. You want to always be yourself, if you are the type of person who loves to wear comfy clothes 24/7 and don't enjoy getting all dressed up just to go sit in different rooms then you do you! Embrace that side! Even I wear comfy clothes to school sometimes, but that's very rare. All I'm trying to get at is, just be yourself and people who enjoy the same types of stuff as you will come along. I'm not saying that the person you were in like the 6th grade, is the person you have to be while in high school, but you definitely don't need to like wake up one day and be like, from this day forward I'm going to be this type of person instead of myself; because in all honesty I feel so bad for people who feel like they  have to change the way they act/dress/eat just to fit in with the group of people that they envy. But also know, that you will change slightly through your years in high school, because you experience new things and find what you like, and what don't like.


That's it for this post! I hope you enjoyed reading these tips for  high school, and yeah, Until next time! - Coral
