This quarter has gone by in a blur. I vividly remember waking up that August morning and not believing that I was about to drive to school. It was one of those things that you don’t want to believe. You keep telling yourself, “this is not happening, this is not happening” but it unfortunately was. I ended up driving to school that fateful morning, and was introduced to my teachers and classmates. I soon got into that monotonous rhythm of school. Wake up, go to school, go home, do homework, and go to bed. Hanging out with my friends on weekends and going to volleyball and football games definitely helps though. It makes at least some part of school more fun and enjoyable. Although, my senioritis set in extremely quickly. Studying and doing homework has become harder than ever and way easier to procrastinate. I’ve had a lot of practice over the past few years. Fortunately, my workload has surprisingly been minimal. I rarely have B-day homework and the occasional A-day homework. I even haven’t had to study that much all year! A lot of my grades have been dependent on the homework, small projects, and essays. For example, in Dual Enrollment English we have only had one quiz all year and our grade has been based on homework, a project, and an essay we wrote. It’s much different than any other English class I have been in. This quarter has been a little rough on my grades, but hopefully I can push through the senioritis and finish out the last three quarters strong.
