Seventh Grade Reflection

When I first arrived in August, I expected the year to fly by as quick and as easy as sixth grade. I soon realized sixth grade was more of a warm up to seventh and eighth grade. By October my world was turned upside and covered in homework. I had projects, worksheets, essays and books to be read. Sometimes projects were due the next day that they were assigned! Not only did I have a lot of homework but a slight obsession with social media and Netflix, so much so that it was hard to finish my assignments.
Eventually I realized that you have to keep up your grades to succeed. It’s not all fun and games, especially when you fail. In seventh grade I realized that studying is really important and it can help you so much (especially during a pop-quiz). I also learned that you can’t just “forget” to do your homework because most classes rely heavily on daily grades like that and it can bring you down. “Forgetting” the study or to do your homework can also be caused by social media, it can get pretty addicting, that’s why I learned not to get distracted by it and get your work done first.
As this year comes to a close, I can see some people are scrambling to drag their grades up in the next three weeks we have. What they forgot to do was plan. Planning ahead and not waiting to the last minute to to your work can be a fatal mistake. Which brings me to my advice for future seventh graders: Study. Do your work. Don’t get distracted. And lastly Plan ahead.
