What should i exspect My senior year of high school??
In my experience, I’ve seen individuals fit into two categories: 1) the person who has seniorities the moment they step into their first class on the first day of school or 2) the person who decides to take a thousand challenging courses and works really hard.
I was one of those who chose to take many AP courses during their senior year. I was plagued by an insane amount of homework during my first semester. There was just so much to do. Also, I had to worry about SAT I, SAT II, AP scores, my cumulative GPA, and college applications. I have to say first semester was really stressful. Second semester was a bit more relaxed. Let’s be honest – once you hear you got into college, you kick back and relax. Expect your grades to drop a couple of points by April and May if you’re studious. If you’re not the studious type, expect your grades to drop by November.
I also realized that senior year is important for friendships. For some reason, again, either you become really close to your friends or your group of friends changes completely. The latter happened to me. The group of friends I had made since elementary school split up, so I ended up hanging out with different people during my senior year. If this happens to you…dont worry about it! It sure feels strange to lose friends during your senior year, but sometimes you gain even greater friends that way.
Expect senioritis. I thought it was a myth, but it isnt. This may, I just couldnt bring myself to complete my homework before I got to school. Suddenly, you’re just counting the weeks till you dont have to go to school anymore…and you hate the school even more because you just want to leave already. This only gets worse during the second semester…there’s really almost no way to fight it. I consider myself very driven, but senioritis is powerful.
Expect a lot of memorable moments with your friends. Senior Year can be a lot of fun.
For some people, it’s a lot of fun, with blow-off classes, more freedom, and the boost of being the oldest and wisest.
For others, it’s a lot of stress with AP classes, endless college and scholarship applications, and studying.
Either way, it’s fun just being a senior! Also kind of sad, for me anyway, because it’s when you start to realize that your childhood is over.
So yeah. Enjoy it.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!!!
