My Final Year
Everyone has their own expectations, hopes, and fears about their senior year of high school. My senior year has contained all of the above and more. This year has taught me many things; such as, leadership, time management, and appreciation for the teachers in my life. Perhaps, some people expect more out of this vital year. As for me, I could not appreciate it more.
For instance, this year I was chosen to be one of the section leaders for our high school band. Such a position takes an enormous amount of skill, leadership and responsibility. In order to be a section leader, you must be among the elite class of students in the band. Also, you must be able to keep your section under control. Finally, it is essential that you make sure they obtain all of their music, drill charts, and chips. Through the completion of all of the tasks I have gained the ability to lead a group of people.
Furthermore, I have learned how to manage my time this year. I am expected to get high grades in all of my classes while having a job on the side, and practicing my tuba, going to play in the orchestra, and competing in local and state band clinics. It would be impossible to do all of these things if I had no sense of time and how to manage it.
Lastly, I would be nowhere if I had not, the greatest people I know to teach and guide me through the struggles in which I have and will face in my final year of education. Mr. Jay, Mr. Tree, Mrs. Johnson, my mother and father, and my brother are those great, wonderful people who have blessed my life this year. They have created the person I have become. For without them would be as if an engine without gasoline.
In conclusion, I have learned many things throughout my life. Some of which are essential in the development from adolescent to adult. For the most part, that knowledge was distributed to me in my 12th grade year of high school. I was taught leadership, time management, and appreciation for my teachers.

After I graduate in primary school (the grade school) I felt mixed of emotion excited and nervous. Excited in the sense of I will gain new experience, new friend and new teachers. Nervous, because I don’t know if I can get through this stage of my life. On my first day of school at hung high school I felt nervous. I was surrounded with new faces, new environment and new attitude. I remembered the day that everyone need to introduced yourself in front of my new classmates. I was ashamed that time but I was overcome that feelings. I told to myself I will make it this first day and the following day until I can adjust and embrace my new life.
As the goes by, I gained a lot of friends who always support all the way. A friend that uplift your personality that in time of problem they are always there to support. I was thanks to GOD that he gives me those people. I was also active in Academic even though I was not in science class I still did my best. I’m not that kind of genius person but through my hard working and dedication I did my best. Even though I was in lower rank. But I didn’t loss hope that time I told to myself there are 3 years more to come,”Babawi Ako”. Until then, when I was in 2 nd year my grades were getting better …I was transferred in science class.

It is hard to break with him ant easy to forget all the things that he gave me a sweet gift. The gift of high school life is the JS PROM.

Friends always there in my side but we didn’t knows that every friends you are are true friend sometimes their true if he needs your help… all this are usually I feel now in 4 th year. But more of them are true friends. Teacher and friends is the memorable person of my high school because they are part of my life of how many years….i wishes you all the best.

2ND YEAR HIGH SCHOOL
The Hard Reality of Being a High School Senior
The reality of graduating high school and moving onto college oftentimes poses some real fear for students.
September 23, 2007
Every day I realize that I’m a senior. I know that probably sounds like a weird thing to say, but every day I have this enlightened moment where I say to myself «Whoa. This is my last year of high school. This is my last year of mandated public education.»
When I wasn’t a senior, I heard seniors talk about missing things about the place they live before they move, and this is something I’ve been consciously trying to avoid. I thought it would be easy, because the place I live is notorious for its lack of things to do. I’d bet that Murrieta is more exciting than a farming town in Nebraska, but if you only went by what you heard from the kids here, you’d think that this city is some kind of punishment. It really isn’t that easy to stop those nostalgic feelings from forming, though, even this early in the year.
Despite my attempts otherwise, I’ve started to notice things that I really like and that will be different no matter where I move. They’re usually just little things, like the Chinese restaurant with the sign out front that says «CHINESE RESTAURANT» that serves amazing orange chicken. Or the fact that every morning on the way to school I see hot air balloons in the distance over the wineries. Or just the fact that I have a comfortable house to live in. When I go to college, I’m going to have to live in a dorm. I’ve stayed in the dorms of three different colleges for summer camps and programs over the years, and the thought of living in a dorm room just doesn’t appeal to me.
It’s not just material things that are becoming apparent, though. It’s people too, like my family. Obviously, I’ll never lose connection with my parents, but after next summer it’s going to be different. It’s something that I look at with a good mix of apprehension and eagerness. I’ve always been excited to live in my own place, have a job, and earn my own money. But it makes me sad to think that this is the last chance I have to spend a lot of time with my parents and family. Have I taken full advantage of the time I’ve had? Of course it’s fun to think about being independent and responsible, but it’s not fun thinking I can never go back.
And it’s the people at school. I’ve mentioned before that we have a large student body. With the understanding that by June this campus will no longer be home to me, I realize that the people I see every day I will most likely never see again. I’m not really concerned about friends — we’ll find ways to stay in touch — it’s more the people who I don’t yet know. At a school of so many, I can honestly say that I see a new face every day. It’s a little weird, and it’s a little depressing. I’ve had all this time to meet as many people as possible, and I do think I did a pretty good job of it, but there are still all these people I haven’t met. What about those people? They’ve been there, but I haven’t learned from them. I have so little time left to glean whatever I can from them — stories, experiences, jokes, whatever. I have a hard time not seeing them as a missed opportunity.
Every day the future becomes more real. The idea of college and life after college becomes less of an intangible fantasy and more of a hard reality.
