The Confession Of A High School Freshman
For most people, school is starting up within the next month, and as much as I am enjoying my summer, I am looking forward to going back to school so I can see all of my friends. However, in the back of my mind, I am scared to death for the new school year to start. I'm starting my freshman year, and I'm really kind of freaking out!
Last school year when we started getting our high school schedules and everything, it really kicked in that I am growing up and I'm about to be with the "big kids." I worked so hard to be the big dog or at the top i middle school, but now I'm back to square one, being the little fish again. Ugh.
When I think of high school, the first thought in my head is automatically, "Oh my God, what if high school is actually like the 'Mean Girls' movie?" Right now I'm thinking about that huge cat fight that happened when they had to stay after school to get that huge speech and all of the drama that happened consistently throughout the movie. I don't want to be the girl that has to eat her lunch in the bathroom or the girl who no one wants to sit with at lunch. Most importantly, I do NOT want to be the girl who gets shoved into a locker!
My mom is constantly giving me pep talks about high school. She gives me advice about how to deal if something happens that's the typical high school problems like rumors and what not. Even my friends that are older are saying that it's not as bad as some people put it out to be. Not gonna lie... that rests my nerves a good bit. I guess the best thing to do when you're freaking out about that kinda stuff is just try to look forward to it with no fears, right?
The main things I'm looking forward to are the homecoming dance, prom, of course, and just the pride you can take in being a high school student. It's all going to start to sink in that I'm growing up and that this is finally the moment that I've been waiting for. I'm super excited for all of the new opportunities that'll come my way too.
So overall, I can say that I'm pretty frightened of the things that people put high school out to be, but on the other hand, I can't wait for all of the high school activities that are to come forth. I mean have you ever seen the high school kids on Facebook, it sounds like they have a blast. I'll def have butterflies the first day of my freshman year but I'm sure I won't be the only one.
Do you guys feel the same way as me?
