Hello everyone! This is officially my last blog. I know I said that last week, but I want to give some advice. Before that though, I’d like to tell you about my weekend: First, I drove for 5 and a half hours to my Grandmother’s House in New Jersey, for a family reunion. I studied for my Biology Final the entire way. Then on Saturday I drove back, and had another 5 and a half hours of Biology. Today, I have spent nearly 3 hours studying Geometry, and plan for some more. I had a great weekend! YAY! But at least tomorrow is the last day of school. Actually, now I’d like to segue into my advice for future freshmen:
- You probably read the list above. If you did, this doesn’t apply to you, but read this anyway-- always read everything. All the directions, footnotes, EVERYTHING. It will save you a lot of time.
- The above description of my weekend is a good example that sometimes, you have to fit in schoolwork anywhere you can. Do not procrastinate.
- Keep your binder’s organized. You will pass Geometry Binder Quizzes, and your other classes will be easier.
- Ask questions. Don’t be embarrassed, it really helps.
- Run track or cross-country. We have the best teams in York, and freshmen get treated like veterans.
- Don’t waste study halls. We all know the feeling of not wanting to work in a study hall. But trust me, when you realize you have a big geometry assignment due, they help.
- Be polite to all teachers. They notice it, and respect you more.
- Don’t be that guy that never has a pencil-- it gets annoying fast.
- Balance out your work and social life. Don’t spend 12 hours studying for a Biology test (it’s not that unheard of), and don’t stress over Technology and Careers class.
- Have fun! Without some happiness, Freshman Year will stink.
Well, have a great summer everyone!
