Evolution Of A High School Student

9th Grade

Ohmygosh. This is, like, SO FREAKING AWESOME. I am finally out of junior high! Look out world, this is the year I start living my life! New L.L. Bean monogrammed backpack? Check. Assignment notebook with Justin Bieber on the cover? Check. Pictures of me and my friends taped to the inside of my locker in such a way that it looks like I didn’t arrange them in any particular way even though I spent an hour making sure they were exactly how I wanted them? Check. Everything here is so cool. All the older kids seem like grown-ups. I can’t wait to hang out with my friends in the bathroom between classes! …Unless that’s not cool. Is that cool? I’ll have to wait and see what the older kids do. Man, I can start over this year! I’ll be anybody I want to be! Maybe I’ll be outgoing and bubbly, or maybe I should go for the subdued, indifferent, Bella Swan type. Hmm. Decisions.

10th Grade

Well, I think we can safely say I’ve made it. I’m a sophomore now. Yeah. And the freshmen? They’re soooo stupid and beneath me. Ugh. I like to make them feel their inferiority by tossing my hair a lot as I pass them in the hall. Being a sophomore is soooooooo much better than being a freshman. Like, sooooooooooooooo much better. Ugh, what? We have a pep rally? I’m pretty sure I’m too cool for that now. Whatever. *eye roll*

11th Grade

Okay, school just got REALLY hard. What the heck? I’ve got three hours of homework every night and I’m barely passing. Plus I got a part in the play, I’m in show choir, I play basketball AND soccer, and I have a part-time job. Oh, and I’ve got fifteen college applications to fill out. No time to talk.

I am soooo over this place. I lost my assignment notebook on the first day of school, but it’s cool because I haven’t bothered to write anything down anyway. I don’t even know what class I have next period. Homework? Pssh. As if anyone does that anymore. You think I’m going to waste my time learning when I could be daydreaming about college? Puh-lease. I’ve already put my University bumper sticker on my car, and I just changed my Facebook network to the college I’m going to so that everyone will know how awesomely cool I am. High school is for losers. *hair toss*

    Hahahahaha. Mine was just like that, except for replace excitement with sheer terror on the first day of high school (saying I was a geek is an understatement) and then replace the being over it during senior year with being so buried in work it made the junior year one look like an easy time.

      Really? That is very different than my experience. I guess I was slightly terrified, but it was overshadowed by excitement!
