Conditions of Use
Dear fresh freshman;
Congradulations, you're in ninth grade. High school is generally portrayed in two very different ways. The first makes high school seem like one of the worst experiences you have endured so far, and that you will be constantly counting down the days of the years you have left. The second makes high school seem like a wonderful and dandy place where all you will have the best days of your life. On average, it’s a bit of both, but mostly you’re just living through it. If you never do your school work and basically act like a jerk, you will not have a good time at all. If you do your work and are nice enough to most everyone, you will not have so bad a time.
Classes aren’t as bad as they sound. This advice applies to all of them; do the work, pay sufficient attention, and refrain from being annoying and irrelevant. If you’re respectable to the teachers, they’ll be nice to you. In Civics, and probably any class, don’t attempt to listen to your ipod or other music device while the teacher is talking. Not only is that extremely obnoxious, but you will be called out on it. One of the biggest fabrications they will ever tell you in high school is that you will have enough time to get to all your classes punctually. You don’t. This is a horrible lie. So you will be required to haul it down the hallway; especially for English and Health. Don’t be late for English.
The best thing about being a freshman is that you are no longer in junior high. Nothing else surpasses this fact. However, don’t get a swollen head about it. You’re still at the bottom of the totem poll, so to speak. Don’t be offended, everyone starts there. Seniority and respect can only be gained through experience and time. Be a commendable person.

Even though I rag on you about 65% of the time, you're actually one smart cookie. Yeah I know I havent read a lot of these so I can't say yours is the best, but yes it's quite good. Your advice is very helpful and you're pretty wise when you want to be. Lucky enough for me, you're my dearest sister so you've kind of already prepared me for 9th grade, but those kids who come here not knowing what they're getting into, this is of great help to them. Thanks Kell
