Every since elementary school I always knew that high school would be the best years of my life. My mom would tell me about how she was the captain of the cheer team, how she got to see every basketball game, how she would stay out all night with her friends, and how she made everlasting memories in just four short years. I guess she forgot to mention how hard the education part of high school is. But nonetheless she was able to realize more about herself through those experiences. When we fully understand ourselves we are then able to become the people we were meant to be all along.
"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure." Colin Powell
Thinking back to elementary school I knew that I was not a fan of school. I was someone who loved to socialize and go outside to play games which is still pretty relevant today. Studying was never easy for me because I would get so distracted by everything and everyone around me that it was impossible for me to focus. This led to the destruction of my test scores. My teachers understood that I could do the homework and in class assignments but saw that my studying habits were lacking. All of the things I practiced in elementary school like not studying followed me throughout middle school and into high school.
