The first day of high school is one of the most important days of high school. Today I will like to tell you how my first day of high school went.
In 8th grade we had a chance to visit the school, but sadly we didn’t have time to tour it, so of course once summer ended I was panicking that I will get lost. I didn’t even know which door we would go through. Well that dreadful day soon came, and my mom decided to drop me off. I texted my friend who wanted to get there earlier to tell me where the freshmen were meeting. We were supposed to cafeteria.
Like always I got there late, so I hadn’t had the chance to go to my homeroom class with my teacher. My mom and I saw what homeroom I was in, but We couldn’t find the class. Fortunately, the librarian told me she will walk me there. She walked me to my homeroom and let’s just say it was the most awkward thing ever. When I entered, the class went dead silent. I looked around the room to see if I recognized anyone, but of course with my bad luck the only seat open was next to these mean popular girls. I know, so cliché. So, I sat next to these girls, and my homeroom teacher made me sign some forms and gave some for me to take home.
I didn’t even sit in my homeroom for more than 5 minutes, before the bell rang signaling homeroom is over. I looked at my first class and I asked my homeroom teacher where it was. Fortunately for me my first class was right in front of my homeroom. Yay! So, I walked in there and the teacher was already assigning seats. Like what! Who does that? My first class in high school wasn’t that bad at all. We just did some simple tasks. My second class was below my first class, but I didn’t know which hallway it was on. So, it took about 5 people and some teachers giving me directions before I got there. Again, my second class was really fun.
My third class was the one that gave me a headache. It was outside and I didn’t know where the freak it was, so I decided to follow this one kid who had the SAME schedule as me. Lucky me! After third class, it was lunch time, and since my class was outside, I got the last lunch. By the time, I got to the cafeteria, I was dying.
After lunch, I had fourth class. I still to this day curse the person who created my schedule. My fourth class was all the way up on the fourth floor. You got that right. I had to go from the ground floor all the way up to the 4th floor. No wonder I was so thin in 9th grade. My fourth class was a mess for 2 months. Our teacher quit two days before school started that means we had a sub. Yay! (It really isn’t. A new teacher came in November)
Overall If I had to rate my first day in high school it would be an 8/10. Finding my classes was a hassle and the crowd oh my god! Being a short person almost everyone was taller than me. Even the people who I saw in May grew like 4 inches over the summer and some got prettier. I was just sitting there like “wtf puberty! Why didn’t you smack me with hotness? Huh?” I didn’t grow an inch. Like how sad is that?
All I can say to people starting high school is that: Take your time to know the layout of the school, find people you share common interests with, and don’t be afraid to try new things.
I still regret not joining any clubs in 9th grade. Don’t say I’ll join in 10th grade. 9th grade is the easiest year and probably be the year where you have the most free time, so take advantage of it.Follow me on:
