After junior year, I figured, “If I got through the ACT, SAT, and all my AP exams, I can get through anything senior year throws at me -- piece of cake!” Truth is, I find that it’s a lot more complicated than it seems.
As I think about life after high school and the decisions ahead, the most important thing to me is the rigor of the programs at the college I choose.
As a junior signing up for next year’s classes, I have a lot of questions I wish people would just answer straight out instead of giving me the whole “It’s your life and they’re your choices” spiel I’ve gotten from just about every counselor, teacher, and friend that I’ve asked for advice.
Lesson Plan Guide: Diary of a Senior - Big discovery
By junior year, I have realized my time here is dwindling away.
As I start the transition for my senior year, I am overwhelmed with excitement and fright.
Time flew by way too fast during my first two years of high school, and this year I am a junior.
This year I am a junior at Birdville High School.
I am starting to realize how important this school year will be for me.
As a senior in high school, every time I hear the word “college,” an endless list of worries and anxieties runs through my brain like the final credits to an overstaffed movie.
I have a long list of hopes and wishes for the year ahead but I will share only a select few. First and foremost, I anticipate reading more books. I plan to read more since I am determined to go to college for English and Communication Arts. Secondly, I hope to grow taller. I am an inch from being 5 feet tall. Thirdly, I hope to befriend more people in my senior year.
When thinking about college and making future decisions, it is very easy for me to get overwhelmed.
The famed senioritis is already beginning to spiral through my thoughts. As I make list upon list of things I need to get done, I find myself succumbing to distractions.
There are plenty of things I’m hoping to get out of this school year. I’m excited about senior year! When I looked at all the past seniors they looked like they’ve had so much fun and I want to experience all of that, too. That mini feeling of being the “Top of the School.” I’m scared because I know it’s my final year and I want to do extremely well but also enjoy myself. I want to accomplish having great grades in my regular classes and in the college classes I’m taking.
I believe that in life I fit in a relatively eccentric category.
My goals and expectations for the coming school year are beginning to feel a bit overwhelming.
While being optimistic isn’t always easy, adopting a positive attitude can unleash a spiral of success.
Although for many people school is a dreadful occasion, I always seem to be more excited as the years pass.
The best advice I can give my fellow high school students is to be open to change.
I am not exactly sure where I would like to go to college, but I have requirements, expectations, and goals.
Looking back on my experience with the college admissions and future planning process, the phrase “hindsight is 20/20” comes to mind.
