High School Motivation Friendship

Have you ever had that feeling when school is getting a bit tough you just can’t wait to be done with it? When the homework and projects keep piling up while your energy starts disappearing and eventually, you’re left feeling drained and not so enthusiastic about school.

We’ve all been through this at some point, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t moments that make all the hard work worth it, right? Besides, one day, this will all just be a distant memory when you get older- just take it from these 3 girls who’ve walked the high school journey too.

“I think my best moments from high school would have to be going to some of my favourite classes, namely English and my drama classes. I looked forward to them because besides excelling in them, these were the few classes where I really enjoyed the teachers and the lessons. One of my other favourite moments is making friendships that I would in future treasure. I might not be friends with everyone, but the ones that have stuck around- we’ve built a very strong bond.”

“My best moments included being exposed to a variety of different people from different backgrounds that helped me not only understand the world on a broader level but also taught me to understand different cultures”

“I think when I look back on it, the most important thing to me was the relationships I was able to build with my teachers. Having really great teachers, like my history teacher, encouraged me to really understand what they were teaching us at the time”

We know, high school can get hard and you might have a moment here and there when you wonder if it’s all really worth it. Trust us, it is. High school is more than just long classes and homework. It’s about the things you learn, the opportunities you get and the people you meet.

All in all, high school is just one moment in life that passes quicker than you think it could. But the lessons you learn from there are so important, you might just carry them with you forever. So take a deep breath and keep taking each day as it comes. You’ve got this!
