High School Survival- Blog 1

Sun, Sep 9, 2012 at 9:12 AM By: countrybumpkin4life

Hey guys,

For those of you who didn't read my last blog I decided to start blogging about my experiences in high school and give advice for new students or incoming freshmen.

First off, I would like to say, it's not as scary as it looks/sounds. YES there's way more work than middle school and YES it's a totally different environment, but it just takes some getting used to. If you're entering high school with a bunch of people you already know, it's important to reach out to others, even though you already know people. You want to expand your horizons, make new friends, not just keep all your old friends, right? That may be scary, but when you think about it, everyone else is feeling the same way. If you're entering alone, REACH OUT. Make new friends. If you come across as comfortable in your own skin and be yourself, you'll be sure to meet new people! and Also, DO NOT FEAR THE UPPERCLASSMEN. They may look frightening, but they're just like us: people. You can ask them anything you want to, and most likely, they'll be happy to help. And if you join sports or clubs you'll most likely meet some of them on your teams or at practices, and that's a good thing! Don't be afraid to introduce yourself! Make sure that within the first week, you come home with at least one person's phone number, facebook, twitter name, whatever, so that you can stay in contact. Only the first week or so is awkward, but once you get into the swing of things you'll be totally fine!

Okay, now in high school on the first day there is going to be lots of information and questions going through your mind. Like "wait...they're telling me to join all these clubs but what about time management?" I'm here to clear this up. High school gives you a great opportunity to try something new and try new things, but you have to remember your schedules before signing up. Keep a planner with all your homework, projects, sports, activities, social stuff, everything. Before you commit yourself to anything, make sure you can manage it all, and if you can't you're going to need to drop something (no, not your homework, something less important.) If you don't take this time to self-evaluate you're most likely going to end up in a frenzy or stressed all year long.

I hope this helped (btw this is my 13th blog so I'm excited, YAY!)

    o_O~~Swifties, I need your help for Taylor Swift...~Is it possible to get you to join the companion and write a letter to Taylor Swift to help her decide on when she would do the movie "Love Story"... "Bringing her "Love Story" fairy tale to life..." and be sure to pass it on to your friends... NOTE: write to either one...
    Her fan mail address is here:

    http://www.bigmachinelabelgroup.com/~~~Big reason why, how often do we all have a chance to see a true fairy tale As well as, have some one like Taylor Swift find her Prince Charming... In Taylor Swift Bio, she speaks of reading A fairy tale as A little girl meeting her Prince Charming and hoping he's everything she ever wanted. But later as Taylor Swift grow up and she realized their was a story their... But only wrote the song "Love story" which was the fairy tale and late ROBERT KING turn the "Love Story" song into a feature film script bringing to life that "Love Story". Which Taylor Swift always wanted to be in. A true fairy tale all of her life. And so her fairy tale can come to life and she can find her Prince Charming as easy as Getting Taylor Swift to decide to pick up the phone and call ROBERT KING. Note for Taylor Swift ONLY~please call ROBERT KING [email protected] (909) 620-3552 is Temp. ONLY…!
