School Spritz: Freshman Year Survival Guide

Freshman year of high school can be a terrifying, yet exciting year. It's all about making new friends and getting used to the big school you just set foot in. It's full of new and friendly people who are willing to help you find your way around. 

In this edition of "School Spritz", I will be sharing experiences and my knowledge about freshman year with those nervous about that first year in high school. Use these tips below and I guarantee freshman year will be a great year. 

1. TIME MANAGEMENT. I'm pretty sure you've all heard this term from your parents and/or previous teachers. This is one of the keys to success in high school. As far as homework goes, do the easiest assignments first to get them out of the way, then study for that big biology test and write your essay later...those take A LOT of time! 

2. FRIENDS. Having several close friends by your side can really make a difference. They can help you tremendously through your ups and downs. Also, lunch time is the best time to hang out with all of them.

3. EXTRA HELP. I can't stress this enough. ALWAYS see your teacher if you are unsure of an assignment. Their job is to help you, right? Go to them and I guarantee they will be more than happy to help you when the need arises. I can't count the amount of times I went to see my teachers for help...It helps a lot! Not only does your grade on the assignment go up, but also your bond with that teacher comes closer.

Follow my 3 keys to success and you'll have a great time in high school! For those of you who are freshmen in high school, there are always people out there to help you, NOT hurt you! 

Good luck to everyone in school this year!
