Advice to All Freshmen

Hello freshmen!
Welcome to Woburn High, and here’s some things you should all know about high school!
1-      At first glance, the school seems super huge, but trust me, it isn’t. It may look some labyrinth specifically designed to make you late for class, but it isn’t. It’s actually rather smaller than it appears, and I can assure you, you’ll find your way.
2-      Don’t worry about the stereotypical “mean teacher”. There are barely any of those here, most of the teachers seem to be rather nice, so take that into consideration. Also appreciate what they do for you!
3-      Please take grades VERY seriously. Words cannot described how close you are to college right now.
4-      Come into this school with a positive attitude! If you come in thinking you are going to butcher this whole shindig, then you won’t ever succeed! You just got to give it your all and make every moment count, and always have hope.
5-      You aren’t going to see all of your squad in all if your classes, let me tell you that right now, on May 28, 2015, at 3:03 in the afternoon as I type this, you barely see any of your close friends in your classes. That being said, you may-scratch that, you definitely want to think about making some new friends.
6-      The food they serve on the first day of school is just an illusion. It won’t stay as good for the rest of the year. Don’t get your hopes up for that.
7-      There is good chance you will get less time to do projects than you got in middle school, so plan accordingly!
8-      In some classes you won’t even GET projects, so that’s something to look forward to.
9-      Prepare for deep thinking.
10-  Get involved! Join some after school clubs! Trust me when I say this, they are a lot of fun, and can provide as a pretty good social gathering from what I have seen!
11-  You will be judged for everything you do, but it's okay because you are you and that's all that matters. So strut your stuff and forget about them. However, if they get too far, serve the justice necessary.
12-  Seniors act like they are superior to freshman, and that's because they are, so watch out. I mean it, they are the overlords of the school.
13-  Juniors shouldn't be acting like seniors though, so just ignore THEM. They can wait a year, but some are impatient.
14-  You can redeem yourself as a sophomore if you make any mistakes; I swear it is an option.

Good luck to you all!


  1. Seniors aren't really better than freshmen :/ Good advice about making friends in classes, too.
