Advice to Future 7th Graders

7th grade is probably the most difficult grade of middle school and possibly one of the most awkward, so it is my job as a 7th grade survivor to share some wise words that might just help the future 7th graders get through the school year.

  • Don’t stress over homework- I’ve had a lot of experience with this issue many times throughout the school year. Some of which even led to me getting so over stressed that I cry and just fall asleep right there. My advice is that if a teacher assigns you too much homework in such little time, try to make the most out of wildcat time, but if you find yourself at 11:00 p.m. almost falling asleep onto your homework, just go to bed and try your best to finish it in the morning. Your mind and your body being healthy is much more important than some math packet.
  • Don’t worry about the small things- I’ve already wasted so much time of my year worrying about the most unimportant things in my day like what to wear, how I should fix my hair, if my eyebrows look weird or not, etc. So, just don’t waste your time. It’s not worth it.
  • It doesn’t matter if you fit in or not- During 6th grade and at the beginning of 7th, fitting in took up a lot of space in my mind. I noticed that if you’re always struggling to fit in, you forget to add a bit of fun into your school year. If you aren’t always worried about what people think of you or how many friends you have then that gives you more time to really experience your 2nd year of middle school while you can because, trust me, it goes by way too fast. I suggest that you find more people you are comfortable with, enjoy to be around, and just have fun with them instead of pretending in order to “fit in”.

These may be just a few tips, but these will most likely help you have a great time and make it through the school year. Although these tips may make 7th grade sound worse than it really is, you will definitely have a blast and, sadly, before you know it, you’ll be heading to high school already, so enjoy it while you can.

Upcoming Six Flags Trip

This Friday, I am taking my first trip to Six Flags with my choir group for a school field trip. Although an opportunity like this is extremely exciting, I am filled with both joy and anxiety about this trip. Most of my body is filled with pure enthusiasm, but there is one little piece of nervousness underneath all of it.

I’m not exactly sure why I am even a little bit nervous about this trip considering the fact that I have ridden many roller coasters before this trip was mentioned and one of those roller coasters I rode twice. Okay, I am aware that I did chicken out at the Disney World Animal Kingdom ride, Mount Everest, but I am almost certain I can make it through this, but, now that I think about it, I felt the same way about the Disney ride before I actually got there.

I might have more doubt than what I say I have, but I know that, one way or another, I am going to have an amazing time at Six Flags. All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed I don’t change my mind on riding roller coasters right as we pull into the parking lot. Wish me luck!
