The first day of school is an all around crazy day. Freshmen have their first day of high school ever. Most of them do not remember where their classes are or when to go to lunch. For the seniors, it is a bittersweet day, being their last first day of high school. For the sophomores and juniors, it is just another day that they have to be at school in the middle of their high school journey.
Cheyanne Thompson, freshman, had a pretty good first day of school. “I got here at 7:30 because I missed freshman orientation,” said Thompson. Her brother showed her around, and her friend also had an older brother that helped her throughout the day. The first day of school went by really smooth for her, and she was only a little nervous for her first day.
The second day of school was a different story. “My brother and I didn’t leave the house until fifteen minutes before the bell rang, and we have to walk to school. I had a feeling I was going to be late. On top of that, I forgot my locker number,” said Thompson, “all in all I was a lot more nervous the second day than I was the first day.” She was also nervous because she didn’t really remember where all of her classes were. Thompson accidently went to her third block class instead of here fourth block class. On top of it all it was her birthday, so having a stressful day at school kind of put a damper on the usually fun filled day.
Cheyanne thinks that high school is a lot different from middle school. “The classes are longer, but you have less of them. You get more homework so you have to think about time management,” added Thompson. She decided to take general classes this year, and is waiting to take Spanish until next year because she doesn’t want to be overly stressed about school. “You don’t have a lot of free time, and you also don’t get a study hall like in middle school,” said Thompson. Cheyanne thinks that she has good time management skills and that she will be able to work it all out.
