High School Survival Guide
By: Kayla Brinkley and Cinthia Morales
Use all free time in class to do other work
Parking in the North Parking lot (the band parking lot)
a lot more sufficient
because it’s easier and faster to get out for lunch. It’s also easier parking, bigger parking spots, and more places to park because most seniors don’t park out there. (seniors reserve spots)
As a freshman, try make friends with an upperclassmen
you can get rides everywhere. I KNOW it sucks not being able to drive everywhere. If you can friends with an upperclassmen than that task will get easier. You don’t even really have to like them, just be nice.
You’re probably not going to have the same friends you did in middle school
which is okay. Branch out! Making new friends won’t hurt. Although it’s not fun losing friends, better friends will come. I believe that in life you get good things taken away and get even greater things given in the future.
Certain teachers act scary but they really aren’t
At the beginning of the school year teachers try to act mean just so you’ll get your work done and get things turned in. You can actually become real good friends with your teachers. They have great advice and know what you’re going through because they’ve been in your shoes.
Boys are the devil.
I don’t recommend dating in high school because you either end up breaking up or having to base your college decisions on them. I’m not saying DON’T date because dating is good, because you experience and realize what you want and what you don’t want your husband to be like. Just don’t go boy crazy because, break ups suck. You also don’t have to be known as the girl who flirts with every boy.
Don’t do drugs.
Okay, hey, WE HAVE DRUG DOGS. Soo don’t get involved with the wrong crowed. It’s really not even worth all the trouble, and it can cause huge problems. We always have random drug dog appearances so it would be totally embarrassing if you got caught and your parents would totally be disappointed in you.
As in incoming freshman you have more opportunities then you did in the past in junior high. High school has many clubs you can join for example, FFA, FCA, FCCLA, SADD, STUCO, and etc. While you join these clubs, you’ll be making new friends which is also very great!
Remember to do UIL.
As incoming freshman, you don’t get asked to UIL events because usually they’re team they have for that year is the same team as the year before. But sooner or later they will graduate and will need new UIL participant so try out for these events!
