Hello again! Now I know I said I'd be back a week before school, but it seems clumsy me has forgotten something, and that is...choosing your classes. Sometimes the electives are the hardest part, because there's so many to choose from. I know I wanted to take most of them, but I can only choose two. It all really comes down to what you need and not really what you want. Whether that means graduation credits, or what you need for your career of choosing. I chose Japanese. One, not only for credits, but because I'd like to live in Japan later on in the future. I then chose a program called Avid, which is basically a class that prepares you for college. Try looking at the programs that your school offers, because you never know what might benefit you. Also, try getting an idea of what your elective classes accomplish. That way when you're choosing between all of your options it will narrow it down, and hopefully make it easier.
Another thing I wanted to point out is your regular classes. Sometimes there are classes that are more advanced, try taking these because these classes are what colleges are looking for. I know they might look challenging, but try them. They'll be helpful and worth it. If your high school offers open houses, go to those. They're very informational, and there are people and instructors there that you can ask questions to. That way you can ask about the classes, and get any doubts and questions out of your mind. Hopefully this helped, see you in a few months. Wish me luck! - M

A few days ago I just learned that I was accepted into the high school I have always wanted to go to. Not is it only one of the best, but it's filled with classes, programs, old friends, life, and spirit, despite its outside appearance. I don't mean it in a way that it's run down, but rather all I can tell you is that it used to be a military school. Basically it's got every class you could wish for, and not enough periods and school years to try them all out. The moment I received the news from a friend that emails were being sent to tell whether you were in or not, I started getting worried. Right away I told my mom to check her email, and there it was. An email from the school district waiting to be opened. There were moments of anticipation when the screen started loading. We scanned it, I was in! I do plan to start anew. I want to leave the drama of junior high behind, and start a new chapter in my life. Even if it means completely starting over. I'll be back a week before I start school with tips and advice. Wish me luck! - M
