    Unhappy Tomorrow is My First Day of School! NOOOOOO!!!

    To make matters worse, I'm going to a new school, so I know very few people there. Any suggestions on how to make it through the year?

    I was pretty close to having to move and go to a different school. (Divorced Parents) I've never had to experience the "New-Kid" thing, but all I can tell you is to be friendly. Introduce yourself and all that. Don't be scared, shy, or too nervous. Just think about how you would treat a new kid.

    Yeah, I have to go to school tomorrow too. Summer went by too fast.

    I'll try that, although I don't know if I'll be all that friendly for the first couple of days. I have to get up at 5:30, catch the school bus at 6:40 SHARP, and school starts at 7:40. It's not gonna be fun for a while.

    Yeah, it might be a bit hard to get used to.

    I wake up at 5, leave around 6:40, and then school starts at 7:30. We both have some pretty tough schedules.

    I know. At my old school, I'd wake up at aroung 7:00, leave for school at 7:55, and school would start at 8:00. The thing is, at that school, I lived so close to it, I could see the school itself from my kitchen window

    Living by your school can be both good and bad. Then again, I live about 15 minutes away from mine. It's not bad if you drive there, but if you take a bus it's a good 30 minute ride.

    Yeah, for me 8th grade was a great year!

    Sophomore year should be fun, but I'm taking a few hard classes.

    I changed schools 7 times between Kinder and the end of high school. I would recomend hanging back a little to check out the new scene, but get involved with activities you enjoy. Its easier to blend in when you are involved in something.

    Our students come back to the high school next Monday. I'm looking forward to my first class of freshmen.

    I hope the first day went well for all.

    The first semester is the hardest. Hopefully you didn't over schedule yourself like I did. If so, get through it and take a light schedule in the spring. I went from 18 hours with Physics, English, History, Math, and one other course to English, History, First Aid, and Music Appreciation. Be sure to go to class, take good notes, and study. That may sound obvious, but a lot of people hurt themselves by not taking care of buisness and getting caught up in the fun.

    I've never had a semester with only 4 classes, but I can tell you that you're taking the wrong mindset going into this. It will take up a lot of your time. Each class usually requires that you do 2 hours of work outside of class-time as well. It's nothing like high school. I just remember my freshman year; I was only 17 and I was awestruck. It's nothing like highschool in terms of your workload. I think the biggest area which highschools need to focus more of their attention on is reading. You do so much more reading in University than you ever did in highschool.

    I loved my HS. Brebeuf did a lot for me, so moving down to IU next Tuesday will be weird as hell. However I am rooming with a good buddy of mine in McNutt. Also another two good friends of mine are in the room right next to us just by a dumb stroke of luck.

    Cool.

    Nearly all of my friends that weren't my absolute closest freinds went to IU.

    My closest friends all fled Indiana.

    I'm a little bit of both for IU.

    To all the new College students, good luck. College is a serious good time. Work hard and play hard, but remember why you are there. Keep up with your assignments and DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! Talk to your professors and find out what each class has to teach you.

    The big difference between HS and College is that you now own your education. You have to do it for you. Keep that in mind. You're professors want you to succeed, but they want you to break away and do it for yourself.
