10 things I wish I knew before high school

  • Published on Jul 17, 2018
  • Since I'm a graduated gal, I thought to share some high school advice on freshman year, things I wish I knew, and generally how to survive. These tips involve both classes and your social life, so get ready for some lit times (lol sorry).

    Rn im gonna enter high-school, in 2 months, so... im like, really shy, like REALLY SHY i cant talk with ppl just like that, i blush af, and i kind of think that i have ansiedad (idk how to say it in english), i dont even like to eat in public, i feel so shy. So when i enter high-school, i wanna be the cool girl, but focus on my stuff, i wanna have friends that are good to me, not the mf kind of friends. Uhhh... thanks god that i have already 1 friend in the high-school that im going, she is way more old that me, but she told me that she have a tiny group of friends that are nice, but im still a tiny shy, im my older brother is in that high-school already, he is popular af, and i dont wanna that the ppl look at me as the " sister of ********* " :((( idk if im ready, but im doing my best :')

    man what if they paid kids like 20 dollars per hour to go to high school...and you would get expelled for bullshit just like at any other job? that would probably curb things like bullying and drug use and an apathetic attitude toward studies...thoughts?

    • don’t shout out to your friend in the middle of the hallway
    • never block the hallways (if you’re going to walk slow don’t be in the middle)
    • take AP and duel enrollment classes (dual enrollment is good for over the summer)
    • online courses are your friend
    • never do the bare minimum (ex. take 4 years of math/science, and at least 3+ years of language) - colleges love this
    • do extra-curricular like sports and clubs to meet new people
    • take classes that relate to either your interests and potential future jobs
    • nobody cares what you wear and nobody notices/cares if you wear the same shirt or something twice
    • getting a B or missing a homework assignment isn’t the end of the world... in the grand scheme of things, it’s not a big deal
    • ask for extra credit or help in class if you are struggling
    • enjoy highschool, you only have 4 years. make some friends, talk to those people next to you, try new sports/clubs, go out with friends, live life.

    Well in my country the educational system is different and elementary school ended when we where 11 to 12 years old. The middle school has 3 grades ( 1 : 12-13 years old, 2 : 13-14 years old and 3 : 14-15 years old ) so the freshman year in highschool in the USA is our last year in middle school...
