Every year I always make a checklist for myself, focusing on what I want to accomplish academically, socially, and athletically that year. I believe it has helped me to focus on what is important and what things take priority in my life. Sadly, I have realized in recent weeks that my academics took precedence over a lot of other options in high school. Therefore, my advice to high school students regardless of their grade is to find a balance between fun and seriousness in their lives in order to get the most enjoyment and the best education out of their high school years.
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.
Things I’m hoping to get out of the year ahead and goals I’m setting for myself: To simply be proud of myself at the end of the year is my most honest goal.
