It was August of 2012, I really don’t remember the exact day just know it was my first day of high school, and as everyone else going to high school was just another chapter in life you have to go through. Going into high school I honestly don’t remember how the hell I felt about it. I was happy, excited, nervous; everything in one feeling, but one thing I did know was that everyone kept in mind the same old shit every middle school teacher said about high school. From writing all the essays, to finding out who you really are and even my P.E teacher told jokes about having sex and making sure it was safe.

I used to love reading and could deal with writing. Was writing my favorite thing to do? Hell no, but I had no problem with it, until my English 1 Honors class. Half way through the semester I knew I will hate reading and especially writing with a strong passion. You must be asking what happened, what was so bad about English 1?

Just like my first English teacher, this one was the same kind, but she even put some ugly ass smiley and frowny faces on her notes. I tried using what I learned from the previous year and apply it into this, but it didn’t hold on very long. The rubrics got bigger and complicated it was really eating me alive. Imagine just writing bullshit just to get a grade, I literally just wrote shit every assignment and she wouldn’t even correct or give lessons about anything. She reads every word on the rubric and then gives us the “Good Luck You’ll Do GREAT!” and expects us to automatically get lucky and know how to do
