Marsae's Declassified High School Survival Guide
Step 2
Step 3
After making friends, you should definitely join a club or sport. If you go through all four years of high school without being an active member in an organization your high school career will be BORING! Get out there and do something. Join an extra-curricular activity.
The purpose of this guide is to help incoming, transitioning freshmen navigate through this maze called high school as successfully as possible. My ultimate goal is to help you find your way out. I use knowledge I have obtained from recollections of my freshman year, as well as from my peers and many reliable sources.
I will give you a step-by-step guide of what you should DO and what you DON'T DO.
DISCLAIMER: The information given may not apply to you and are not proven to be true for any and everybody. Now with that, SHALL WE BEGIN?!
Step 1
DON'T choose a school that is not right for YOU. If you are choosing schools because of your friends I am warning you now, DON'T do it. You may think that you and your long-time friend have such an unbreakable bond- and there is nothing wrong with that-, but trust me most of the friends you start out with wont be there when you cross that stage.
Step 2
Once you have chosen a great high school it is most imperative that you make friends. When choosing friends think about things that you want and do not want in a friend. Do NOT compromise you're specifications for a friend. Well, rarely ever. But then again friends come and go. Keep that in mind.
Step 4
Try to get a feel of your school before school starts. This helps when trying to get to class on the first week of school. You do not want to be the lost kid in the hallway confused as to where to go. That's a dead give-away that you are a freshman.
Step 5
DO NOT spend your time devising a plan to get to the top of the food chain. Being popular may seem important now, but in the long-run it won't be. As long as you have a good group of friends you will be good.
Step 6
DON'T buy a whole basket full of school supplies before school starts. You should wait until your teacher provides you with a syllabus listing the required school supplies.
Step 7
Be nice to your teachers. Don't be the obnoxious kid in the class who can't ever give the teacher a break. These people practically hold the rest of your life in their hands and could your attitude could be the difference between a passing amd failing grade.
Step 8
DO ALL YOUR WORK! You do not want to let all the late and missing work pile up. It will be very stressful. Work smart not hard.
Step 9
Get organized! Don't be that person with the miscellaneous or " all my stuff can go in here" folder. Organize your work and notes the waythat makes you the most comfortable. That does not mean you need a binder for every class.
Step 10
Last, but most certainly not least. Never lose sight of who you are and stick to what you believe in. Many people come into high school and completely conform to peer pressure and many other things. And if you can't do anything on this list just simply be YOURSELF.
: Do Not fall for an upperclassman. They only want one thing from you and it surely is way more than love and affection.
Try to make friends with upperclassmen. This will really help your high school experience. But don't force it. Just let it flow.
Get a planner. This is great for organizing all of your stuff.
STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! I can not stress this enough. You should try to make time to study as much as possible so you can perform at the best of your ability.
Don't do drugs! It may seem cool at first glance, but it is not so cool when you get caught and have to pay the consequence.
Don't come into high school thinking it's like the TV shows cause its really not. You should kind of think of it as the exact opposite.it is not what it is all cracked up to be.
Go to social events in and outside of school. This is a great way to just have fun with your friends and make lasting memories.
Know that your friends will get smaller and smaller. I don't really know why this happens, other than that people may change or you may change. They eventually grow apart.
If you take my advice and follow these tips you will have successfully gotten through high school........................ MAYBE! Look, I can not really tell you what exactly you should do. no matter how many tips you Google only you can help yourself, but i can make it a little easier.
Try your hardest to stay DRAMA-free, but still be able to deal with it if you cant avoid it.
