The whole HS-experience thing



Sarah Palma

I’ve never really thought about what exactly it is that I want to get out of the whole high school experience thing.

I guess when I really think about it, I go to high school so that I can go to college, get a good job, have a family, and not end up being financially unstable.

Sure, I hope to get a bunch of laughs, special moments, and memories out of high school, but I’m not really focused on all of that.

I want to be able to get into a good college because of my time in high school. My main goal is to get the best education that is allowed for me in high school.

I mean when you think about it, high school is just another stepping stone for college, just how middle school was a stepping stone for high school.

I want to get good grades right now and do the best I can possibly do so that I get to pick where I want to go and maybe get a scholarship along with that.

I want to graduate and know that I did the best I could and that I gave it my all so that I could achieve everything I want to after high school.

I’m hoping my four years in high school make everything a little easier when I have to be an adult and be independent.

I guess I also hope to get more of the not so serious wants from high school.

Getting exposed to new people and the way they do things is something that I want to get out of high school.

As of right now, I tend to surround myself around people who are just like me and I am not really getting the whole “exposure to new ideas” experience.

I am not really worried about this though, because I have the whole world to explore when I am older and surely I will be exposed to new and different things. I also have all the time in the world to do this, suggesting nothing bad happens to me.

I’m hoping high school helps mature me and shape me into a responsible young adult. I know there is so much more than a high school experience to help with that, but it still matters.

Real life is closer than I could’ve ever imagined, and soon I will have bigger worries than not being able to find the pair of lashes that I wanted to wear to a football game. Really horrible example, but it actually happened one year.

I want to be able to shake off my bad, immature habits that I have now so that in the future I won’t stress myself out as much.

High school should be a fun, challenging, yet rewarding experience. If I don’t get everything I want out of high school that I wanted, I don’t think I will be that down.

As long as I go to college, find an AMAZING job, and live a stress-free life, I’ll be fine.
