Personal Narrative: What I Learn In High School

Satisfactory Essays
Something I regret was when I was in 8th grade, I wouldn’t try on my grades. I would never give effort in my classes. My parents would always have to warn me or caution me to try or else I’ll get something wrong or I’ll miss a homework grade or forget to study for a test. They were the foundation in my grades, I would have gotten C’s and B’s if it weren’t for my parents always bugging me to do it. Junior high was supposed to get you ready for high school, and I don’t know what I was thinking about not trying in 8th. We’ll see what happens in high school.

    I have thought about it and in the past I have had things that changed me for better and for worst and things that I regret doing and not regret doing. Like during junior high I changed my look where my hair was down and I had glasses to hair as a Mohawk and I have contacts. That's something that I'm happy has happened to me. One thing that I regret was not growing my Jedi's braid on the right place of my head. In the past I used to be a very good student and not a very good soccer player. Then…

    When I was in high school we had a teacher that was a very creative in the ways he taught us. He was always coming up with ideas to prove points to our class. I remember one day that was like any other and I suppose that there had been several people who had not been turning in assignments for a few weeks and he had been mentioning to the class for days that we need to be turning in our homework. He always stressed good grades and said that the doing homework would help us on an exam. He decided…

    I have changed a lot as soon as I began high school. I started changing by not doing my homework and not doing class projects. When I was in middle school I would always do my homework every day and keep my average high, but know i'm going down on my average as soon as I went into high school. When I started high school I made myself a promise. I told myself the same thing I told myself in middle school “I will do my best and do my homework all week”, but that didn't happen. It was already the last…

    day in high school at Maynard Evans in Florida back in 2004, I was sitting in class staring at the green walls that surrounded me. I was feeling closed in while waiting to see if I passed the FCAT was scary, and I was feeling nervous. "All of this for a diploma?" I thought. And all I hear is my teacher rambling about "you need your diploma to go to college!" "I didn’t really grasp the importance of it at first." "I was pacing around, It felt like I was sweating…

    When I first moved to Pinellas Park from Hillsborough County about seven years ago, I was upset. I was upset that we were leaving behind a perfectly good house with perfectly good friends to move closer to my extended family. I wondered why we were changing when change wasn’t needed? It was time for a new school, new house, and worst of all, it was time to make new friends. As several years past by, I realized they made one of the best decisions ever because if I hadn’t moved, I would’ve have never…

    As I opened the glass doors on a blustery fall morning, strange faces walked past me. Everyone looked at me and silently asked themselves: Who is this new girl? Why haven’t I seen her in any of my classes? I was alone in this world of people I had never seen before. Leaving my old friends and classmates behind, little did I know that sophomore year was the year my education was going to be more than just textbooks and novels. From kindergarten to my freshman year of highschool, all I did was keep…

    I was seated in the rear end of the Olive Garden, which all in all was pretty quiet, save for a kid's occasional outburst. About halfway through my pasta, an elderly couple sits in front of me and my family's table.They take their order and proceed normally. Then ten minutes or so after they had been seated, two men, probably fresh out of high school sat down with them. One of the two was slightly taller and gave the shorter a reassuring look. From my table, they were facing forwards with their backs…

I spent more times with my friends. In addition, I went to more sporting events, and I participated in school activities and organizations. I got a job. Most importantly, I understood…

Leaving Eighth grade I knew that I had to work hard for four years and hope the hard work will pay off for choosing where I will go for college.

Overall before high school I had a vague understanding of what I was suppose to be doing but no clear idea and no idea of what I was suppose to do after high school. I was lucky to become involved a lot of activities when…

    worried and I just want to get over with. When I was in High School I never manage time to complete my homework. College teach me to be a serious and a mature student.
