Fear, excitement, stress and confusion: familiar emotions overtaking the minds of freshmen this year and every year when starting their high school career. Most freshmen will experience more than one of those feelings, but the important thing to remember is every person in the school is or has been in the same spot.
Maybe in junior high you could get away with that massive, overflowing binder that seemed to magically eat yesterday’s homework and worksheets. That one people were afraid to even walk past for fear it will choose that moment to explode in a disarray of ripped and unfinished papers. First and foremost, freshmen, it is time to get organized. In high school the workload and overall expectations are much higher, so it is important now more than ever to keep the chaos in check.
