According to Zooey Deschanel, nothing can be as hard as middle school. I was a tremendous scaredy cat when I started middle school in 5th grade. My guts were flipping and flopping on that first day. Even though I didn’t know any teachers or friends, I made new friends and met new teachers. I had Mrs. Wherley as a homeroom teacher, she was nice as pie to me. I liked how we could move around to classes instead of staying in one class for the whole day. The first few days I felt like I was part of a cattle drive and I was a little cow.

The next year, I was now a 6th grader. I had Mr. Bayer as my homeroom teacher, he is so good-humored. I liked how he would dress frivolous, it would always make me laugh. That year we did not have a social studies

I was so glad I was a 7th grader because now I get to play sports and get 45 mins of PE! I ran cross-country, track and was the 7th and 8th grade volleyball manager that year. That year in cross-country, I wasn’t that fast. I kept on getting around 15-16 minutes in my races, but I did get on the varsity team a few times. Our team made it to sectionals, but we didn’t advance as a team. We were all very disappointed and a little sad. It was the end of the season for me. Even though we didn’t make it as a team, Alexi Fogo made it as an individual to the state meet, we were proud of her. In track I ran the 1 mile and the 4x400m relay. In the 1 mile you must run 4 laps around the track. My mile time was around 6:40. For the 4x400m relay we kept on getting around 5:00. I made it to the Sectional meet in both events. I did not make it to the state meet in the 1 mile, my time was 6:30. I was pretty excited, that was my fastest time that year. Although I didn’t go to state in the 1 mile, we tried in the 4x400m. Sadly, we didn’t go to the state meet. That year I also was the volleyball manager. My job was to help everyone on the team. We won regional round and then went to the state finals. We won the state finals for the 7th grade! The high school girls volleyball and the 7th grade volleyball team won their state championships! We were state champions in the same year, we were the lucky …show more content…
I am now in 8th grade. My homeroom teacher is Mr. Troutt. In 8th grade the teachers seem very hard, they are a lot different than 7th grade teachers. Since we are the “top dogs” of the school, we must be examples to all the kids in 5th, 6th, and 7th grade. I am in cross-country right now, I am the top runner right now on the varsity team. I hope I can get a little faster before the end of the year. We have a small team this year, only have 10 girls. I am planning to run track in the spring, but I hope I can do more events than just the 1 mile and the 4x400m relay. I am surprised how fast middle school has gone by. We are going to be in high school in less than a year! Now, just thinking about it, I am a little nervous. My guts are flipping and flopping if I think about it, just like 5th grade. I better just block it out, or better yet, I just need to find a time machine and skip some of
