“Time goes by fast when you’re having fun.” Well isn't that quote true? Two years ago, I was walking through the doors of Herbert Hoover Middle School as an anxious sixth grader. Now I’m already an eighth grader hardly believing that sixth grade ever happened. Where did the time go? Certainly not out of the window! I know it happened, but why so fast?
The past two years have been a great experience, and I will always cherish them. This year though, it’s different. It’s like fifth grade all over again. We’re at the top of the world! The sixth and seventh graders look up to us. Of course with every year our responsibilities, homework, and . . . everything increases. Though even with all these cons there are pros. We have two electives instead of one, the new ones being technology education and home economics. For field trips, we get to go out of state to visit two of the country’s main historic cities, Boston and Washington D.C. There’s much more to being the senior most class than you would think. It’s only a week since school started, but I’m getting used to my classes quicker than I expected. The teachers are all nice, some calm and sedate, and others loud and bold. Classes aren’t as different, but definitely more interesting than they used to be. For example, in Social Studies, we get to go more into depth about the immigrants coming to the country, and about the historic American Revolution. Don’t let the fact; I’ve only had one week of school fool you because, the school year is in full swing. I’ve already had my first two quizzes! Yes, along with homework, the amount of studying you have to do for tests and quizzes have also increased.Friends are the ones who stay with you every step of the way. They help you when you need it especially during middle school years. In my first year, one of the things I was worried about was meeting my old friends and making new ones. Later, I found out I had nothing to worry about. I don’t necessarily have the same friends I did in elementary school like, and I’m fine with that. As long as I have friends with me, I know everything will be alright.
