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.
