High school is only 8 short semesters long, and when you think about it, they usually go by pretty quickly. But we are only a couple weeks into second semester and it seems like it's lasted years.When you're a freshman, you're so excited to finally be in high school and do high school things. So the first semester rolls around fast and it's time to take your first finals ever. Then reality strikes you, and you realize you are now a big high schooler. When you're a sophomore, you're just so happy to finally not be a freshman and you can't wait to be considered an upper classmen. Those two semesters of high school also go by very fast.
Then you get to junior year, and first semester flies right by. You think second semester of your junior year is going to be the same as the first, but it's not. Not for me at least. This semester seems to be the slowest moving one I've ever experienced. Now is the time when things in our life get harder. Everything seems to be getting more difficult. Classes are harder, tests are harder, homework is harder. And it's also time to start preparing for the ACT test we take in April. This is the time when we start thinking about what colleges we want to go to and what we want to do with the rest of our lives. Things are becoming a lot more stressful and it seems to make the time go by a lot slower than it has the past two and a half years.
We are all also thinking about how much of a treat our senior year is going to be. And a lot of us are already developing senioritis. Juniors recently just made their schedules for their senior year and most people's seem to be a joke. I personally can't wait for junior year to be over so we can all be one semester closer to our graduation.
I have to say, our 6th semester in high school is probably going to be the slowest five months of our lives. And I don't think time is going to start going by any faster. I really want to know if anyone feels the same way I do, so let me know! Thanks for reading my blog :)
