Usually when people look back on their middle school experiences, they'd say "man I can't believe I did that, I can't believe I was that person." Well you better believe it. I actually miss middle school a lot because of how many memories I made within the two years I've been there. It think it's the most fun I've had in years and probably ever will have. It was more fun than highschool thats for sure, you have less to worry about and more to do. The age of experimenting with your feelings and definetly the start to self-exploration. I definetly love how everyone grew up with one another and are still very close friends to this day. We have all been one huge family and I think that's really cool. Some of us end up going our separate ways but at the end of the day we're all like "oh you're that person in middleschool that ____ !" and we all just laugh about it. It's such a great thing to look back on and remember, a great memory to share with all the strangers you've been going to school with for practically your entire life. It feels so natural and mutual to share a memory with everyone. You'd stop and pause from everything you're doing, from the stress that the thought of striving for sucess in school brings and you think about the little moments you had with everyone in your younger years and you realize thats all that matters. The memories you've held with others is what makes you successful, not good grades. But close relationships even to strangers is what makes you intelligent, not your test scores.

Yeah, it's just okay...

Recently our past principal retired so things obviously weren't the same as they were before. The two principals we have now aren't as strict as they need to be. They're a bit too laid back. They are fairly organized though, we are extremely strict about the dress code and bullying, like we always have been. Office staff are friendlier than the teachers, guidance counselors well, thats a whole 'nother story... Let's just say, you have to get lucky. Unless you're okay with the fact that your counselor is extremely critical and judgemental and will change the subject to your life story instead of staying on the same topic that used to be 'I'm in the wrong course. May you switch me out?' Because you simply don't want to fail... You can either have; 1-Marine Officer~ is extremely critical and judgemental, she will bring up your entire existence, she will make you cry, but she will push you to be the best you can be. 2-Bird. The reason I call 2 bird, is because she/he will yap all day long, with the minimum 45 minutes you have. While she's talking she'll be completely straight forward and she'll talk fast. You have to be on the very top in order to keep up with this lady/man. Most of the time, all you're probably going to be thinking about is how you hope your time in the counseling office doesn't go over your class' period, because missing the next class will have you a failure and one less passing grade on your report card. There goes your hopes and dreams for college. Last but not least, 3- The nurturer. Oh my gosh, if you get her, you are the 1-3% that did. You are a miracle, you are amazing and you can start to recognize yourself as elite without sounding like you have it all.

Basically, in all. I'd have to say that us kids do more than the administration. We inspire and motivate ourselves and others. Sometimes we break rules and neglect the policy but that's what makes us so diverse and unique.
It really is the best. Honestly, I'm really proud of everyone this year that has either decided to join a club/clubs or make their own, it's definetly a huge step up from last year and the previous years. Props to all of you. :)

It makes me really happy when a lot of new people decide to join a club or make one. It really shows how much confidence you have in what you're passionate about, and the way you show that or support it made a lot of the difference too. The amount of commitment people have is phenomenal, I will honestly say that I really didn't expect many people to have such commitment to the clubs they're in. Whether they go all the time or only a few times because of how busy their lives may get with trying to fit more extracurriculars into their schedules when they have homework, tests to study for, colleges to look into, or tutoring to go to. It's really amazing to think that you can do so much with such little time.

The time here, feels very consistent. No one wastes a second, it feels infinite.
