As we first enter high school we are told that “you should take honors and ap classes.” Even our parents tell us this who hear it from other parents. This whole talk that gives us so much pressure and anxiety of entering high school is really not worth it. We enter high school and take the harder classes, until we receive a bad grade that would hit us hard and leads us to stop trying in school. If only wiser and more knowledgeable people would have told us that IT’S OK TO TAKE IT EASY in high school. We don’t have to take harder classes that would “kill” us in the future. There’s simply no point because what matters is that you should be happy with your life. Here’s a comic we made based of it. Enjoy.
It is funny how a day goes by so fast. As a student I feel like most of our lives are being wasted because of school. Everyday we wake up early in the morning, go to school, do our homework, and then sleep. Therefore, it’s a cycle that goes on and on. Unless you’re super lucky you can get out of it, but I guess for most of us we are just stuck at school. The other day my mother told me,”Did you know that in when your 16 or 17 you look the most healthiest and prettiest?” I laughed to myself because all I do now is procrastinate and just stay at home during the weekends. Sometimes when I zone out I think back of the time when I was a kid, I enjoyed taking naps and having so much free time. I miss those moments and hope to have them again. However, nowadays I feel like I have to get to school on time, manage my homework schedules, and getting a good grade on tests. I also barely get enough sleep when it comes to the second semester, since teachers start to cramp everything to finish the year. I remember last year I had to do this biology project were I had to stay up until 3:00 am. The next day I looked like I had panda eyes and I felt like a zombie.
