My first day of 7th grade…how would I describe it? Hmmm…how about OVERWHELMING?!?
I’m pretty sure everyone would agree that 6th grade was a piece of cake. I was expecting the same for 7th grade. But there I am, half-way through first period thinking, oh, no. I squint at the board under the “study habits” column and I find something that I wish I hadn’t: homework! Other than the no homework nights, I’ve never had a day without any homework to worry about.
By November of 2013, I realized that I would never have enough time to go over to a friend’s house, or just have some free time. Everyday my schedule is as follows: wake up, school, dance, homework, bed. Sometimes I get really tired of this routine….
I’ve heard many of my friends that have been at West Ridge say that they thought 7th grade was the most challenging. My opinion would be the same, if not more harsh. However, 7th grade is like a mountain. The effortless beginning created overconfidence, which didn’t help whatsoever when I reached the top of the mountain, the arduous part. All the STAAR tests and finals and everything are in this period of time, and I don’t think anyone looks forward to it. As time went by, things settled down and school was a lot less stressful. Even though 7th grade has been the most laborious, it has also been the most fun!
