words of wisdom to the school-attending crowd.

And yes, yet another school-is-starting post for you to read.

But, don't stop here!  I promise I have interesting things to say.

I remember when I was younger, looking at all the big sixth graders, thinking I would never get there.
And then I became one.

I remember when I was younger, looking up to the big scary freshman, thinking I would never be the people they were.
And then I was.

I remember last year, looking at the juniors, thinking they're old and wise (kind of.)
And now I am.

I love school.

Yes, I do.  And I don't love it just for the social aspect.  I love learning.  I don't care who you are or what you believe (sorry, not meant rudely), but I believe that when you die, you take all the knowledge you gain on earth with you, to heaven or hell.  So doesn't matter where you go, but as long as you are learning, you are gaining.  And keeping forever.

In 6 short days I will begin my junior year, grade 11, whichever you prefer.  The time where life really starts getting important, because you all of a sudden become real important to the universities.
  • Sports start to come into play.  Better get that Varsity Letter second year in a row.
  • Academics are always a key factor.  So what, I don't have a 4.0 GPA. But I take AP classes, honors, advanced math, and classes no one else wants to take.  A 3.9 with a story is much better than a 4.0 with the word [cheater] written all over it.
  • ACT and SAT college entry exams.  Always the stress of older high school students.
Then the overall feeling of growing up, and leaving home in a year.
I don't want to be on my own so soon.

This is what 6 days of my life brings; my junior year. 

As far as classes go for next year.. here happens to be my schedule:

A1- AP Calculus AB
A2- French 4
A3- Acapella SATB
A4- Computer Tech/ Gov & Cit
B1- AP Chemistry
B2- Calc Lab
B4- English Honors
