For as long as I can remember people have been saying that junior year of high school is really rough. It's the year of the SAT, the ACT, the last full year before applying to college, NHS induction, getting teachers to write recommendation letters, and the list just keeps going on and on. So, this past September I went into school with the expectation that my life would basically be miserable for the next 180 school days. Don't get me wrong, there were lots of late nights spent studying, earlier mornings, tears, and times spent after school with teachers. However, junior year was not horrible. Instead of writing a long and quite frankly boring post about my experience, I thought I would share a list of 25 things I have learned over the past ten months. It has been quite the learning experience both in and out of the classroom and although I could not be more excited that it is over and I am almost a senior, I definitely think I have grown a lot in the past year. Here's to the last week of junior year!
