Going into high school was one of the toughest things to get excited for due to my middle school experience. The bullying was what scared me the most, I thought that everyone would make fun of me because of my past. Something I had not yet got over was being around a lot of people, and the high school’s full of people. During the summer, I would ask my mom,
“Can I do online schooling instead? She always denied the idea. Everyone made freshman year seem like a dreadful year, but from my experience, there’s both ups and downs.
At the beginning of freshman year, I had a lot of friends and was on the dance team which was always something I’d wanted. Everything seemed to be going well for me compared to what I’d been through the year

I realized how important school actually was and learned to be happy again. Since I was dating Dale and spent most of my time with him or at practice, my friends and I became distant. When I finally looked at the way my friends treated me I realized that it wasn’t okay. The only person who I wanted to talk to was Dale. Dale’s home life wasn’t the greatest so he grew up at a young age too. We both understood things at a deeper level compared to others. We were both very hard-headed and didn’t want to hear what we didn’t like. After eight months of dating, we finally realized that since we were so much alike that things weren’t working out anymore. QuDale and I ended things during the middle of my sophomore year and his junior year. Having someone who helped me become who I am removed from my life has easily been one of the hardest things I’ve had to go through. He came into my life when I was ready to give up, but when he finally left I went right back to how I was before. My grades started dropping, I stopped caring about my sports, going to school was hard, and I felt so alone. Since I had pushed everyone else away beside him I felt like I had no

I did not realize it then, but now I constantly think about all the things I could’ve done better and all the opportunities I missed out on.

    I stopped wanting to deal with the consequences of my actions. It would only get worse from there. I met the guy who would be the father of my children my junior year which progressed to me giving up homework completely. He was two years older than me and he was always wanting me with him rather than at school. So when the boy you supposedly love, tells you to go hang out with him if you are anything like me, you blindly go even though you know it's not the best option.…

    "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." is a rather famous quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that I could have used back then when this picture was taken. It had been a bad year for me, a difficult one. Up until the point I got into sixth grade, I had always gotten along with my teacher. I didn 't get along with the other students in my class, but I had learned to accept that things had always come easier to me and that they wouldn 't accept me.…

    To no longer be under the complete protection from the real world by teachers and parents is something that is alarming to me. The first day of high school impacted me in many ways. It taught me that actually learning was far more important than just memorizing something in order to gain the teacher 's approval and that the real world was going to begin in a very short amount of time. The first day of high school also made me realize how inefficient junior high school was for me. As I look back on junior high school, I feel like years of my education were wasted on unimportant material that have no value.…

    Assessment: My Reflection I’ve always hated being assessed. Even when I was a young kid I thought it was weird to be compared to another person, standard, or a perception of where I should be. Up until my high school career I hated the idea of grades, but then I started self-evaluating why that was? I started noticing that the classes that I performed the best in were classes that usually didn’t assess my creativity. Whenever I saw a box that said something along the lines of “Creativity 20 points” a lot of my mind just shut down.…

    I also had fallen into becoming a procrastinator my second semester of college. Pushing my homework and assignments off was one of the biggest mistakes I have made throughout my first year of college. Once I started this course, I was still in the horrible habit of pushing my responsibilities off, but after my first essay was completed, I soon realized that my professor was not going to tolerate. The way the class went was, either you do the assignments or you do not get a grade at all.…
