One Word: SCHOOL!
One word... School. It can be a fun word, a nerve wracking word, or for some people a "I HATE THIS WORD!!" type of deal.
For me, school has always been fun. I enjoy it with all my heart. It is not often that you hear about kids my age liking school however, I find the enjoyment out of it. I enjoy getting to know my teachers (even though it can be a process), and getting to learn the curriculum. However, school is not always easy.
School can be a struggle for kids. Sometimes they don't have the support of their family, or they don't feel like they can succeed. They need the support, they need the willingness to believe, and they need someone there for them. I have been very fortunate to have a supportive family. A family who cares about me, and how well I can succeed. During the years I have grown up I can now pass on my knowledge to the younger kids I come across which is a blessing for me.
School can be a fun place when you choose to make it fun. There are your friends! Even if you don't have the same classes, hopefully you have the same lunch and you can socialize there. There's the chance of making new friends when you move to a new school, or when they move into yours. It can be a very exciting time to meet someone that shares interests with you. There are also the teachers. Now teachers can be your worst enemy. I feel that they will be your worst enemy if you choose to make them that. You can always look at this side: they are trying to help you, and give you a great education. They are there to support you through a lot of things... This is how I look at teachers. I always am willing to give teachers a shot.
So why am I writing this? School about to start any day now. I am going to a new school. I am scared, anxious, and nervous. I am trying to look at the positive before starting to look at the negative. I got thinking and all the things above I started thinking. I want to make new friends, I want to connect with teachers, and I want to strive to succeed.
I hope that all of you.... the students can have a positive outlook on your future of school ahead this following school year and they years to come.
