Junior year is by far the most important year of my high school career. This year I am faced with the opportunity to take honors classes, preparing for the SAT/ACT, internships for a month, and from now and to the end of November thinking about my plans after high school (college of course). This year I am going to focus specifically on internships and the SAT because those are two of the things that stand out to me the most.
The most memorable moment of this year so far is defiantly the night of my exhibition, night five. Finally being able to read my story aloud to my parents and my younger cousin who I wrote my story about, a sort of relief fell over me. I was finally done with the event that happened about two years ago and I had closure. To be able to leave the stage leaving all the bad emotions I had left there, I was finally done!
Evolving as a student
As a student, this semester I have defiantly developed the skill of time management. During the summer of 2017, I took a Southwestern history 101 class. My summer was basically spent reading a textbook instead of going to the pool or being with friends. Yes it was a lot of work to do with a discussion board or essay due weekly along with 2 chapters of the history book with activities for each chapter. This prepared me for the work load all honors classes would assign me. For biology we did textbook readings and it wasn't bad for me because I had a strategy for reading the informational text quickly. Managing the honors work with the regular class work I had to make sure my schedule was clear so I get everything done on time. Managing my time has defiantly helped me this semester and will help me for the future as well.
