Top ten tips for freshman year

1. Establish a curfew with your parents.

2. Invest in a good backpack because you get a lot of papers.

3. Learn how to manage your time as best you can. Know what days you have extra-curricular activities and what days you have that are free.

4. Don’t be offended when upperclassmen don’t want to talk to you or start making fun of you, they just like to mess with you while they can for the year.

5. Don’t be afraid of change and go out of your comfort zone.

6. Know who to trust and who not to trust.

7. Go to school events, get involved in clubs or extra-curricular things.

8.  Use your passing period time wisely. Know how long it takes to get from class to class on time and how much time you can spend talking each period.

9. Know your place. We all have to be at the bottom at one point and we will all be at the top at one point, your time will come.

10. Don’t grow up too fast. Enjoy your freshman year, because before you know it, it’s over. Make the best of it. High school goes by fast, enjoy every minute you can.

Katie Curry, Staff Reporter
Mike and Ikes, puppies, jeeps, One Tree Hill, and ice cream...lots and lots of ice cream; it’s Katie. Her life pretty much consists of these things with the addition of a few others, and that’s how most people know her. Alongside these 5 fantastic things, she is also recognized by her long brown curly hair and the unfortunate height of a 5th grader. Her love of her hometown, back-to-back NBA Champion basketball team, the Heat, gets her in trouble because of her surrounding Mav fans, yet she still wears that championship t-shirt to school every once in awhile. This will be her 6th year in Newspaper and she is SOOOO excited...there is a fully loaded snack cabinet with a bag full of Mike and Ikes in it after all. :)
