Summer Ends, Drama Begins

 Well the ship that was summer vacation has sailed, leaving all student in a pool of their own tears as they watch its departure (Other than those who enjoy analyzing Shakespeare’s’ iambic pentameter and slaving over the quadratic formula).  The two month party of summer vacation has finally come to an end and again, just like all previous years, the start of school (though the same time every year) has come as a complete surprise to us. Against our will, we are forced to spend our last week of summer sparknoting summer reading and trying to find someone who actually did that pre- calculus packet that’s due the first day of school so that we can copy it… Don’t even try to deny it, you know you do it every year.   With the start of the school year comes many major changes we should take note of:

     1) Freshmen- All of those akward eighth graders from last year who we saw hanging around the mall in Aeropostale and American Eagle trying to find suitable clothing that would hang properly on their under- developed bodies will now be part of our student body. As we all know, where ever a freshman goes, drama follows… (No offense fishies) Now we get the pleasure of seeing which freshmen get lost and bullied on the first day of school and end up crying in the janitor’s closet. But more importantly, we get to see which ones actually manage to climb the social ladder and make their mark on the school year. Only time will tell.

     2) Teachers- With each new school year, there are new teachers. We all have our personal favorites (Most likely the ones we sucked up to freshman year and who now let us go into the teachers lounge to buy sodas from the vending machine whenever we please), and we all have the ones we detest with a burning passion (The ones who failed us in 9th grade biology because we never did our homework). But what about the new additions? Teachers typically fall into one of four categories- Cool, Push- over, Hot, and Creepy. Of course we all hope to get one of the few hot teachers that we can ogle at all period rather than pay attention in class, but honestly how often does that actually happen? 😦

     3) Returning students- A lot about a person can change over two months of summer vacation. The beginning of every school year brings promising news of all of our friends (And enemies) that we haven’t talked to all summer. Which guys got buff and started growing facial hair? Which girls lost weight or got plastic surgery and now serve as competition for those already attractive females? What Goths finally started wearing colors that compliment their skin tone? Who got religion and who got pregnant? The first few weeks will tell all.

The beginning of the school year brings different news, challenges, and changes for us all. For me personally? Drill team. Unlike other students, my summer ended about half way through July. Drill team has kept me busy since then with daily practices, camps, and auditions, and now that school has started my schedule is beyond chaotic. Why? Two words: Football Season. I’m a Lieutenant so I have a lot more to do than my fellow team mates when it comes to preparing for football season. 6am practices, two periods of dance classes and after school practices in addition to AP classes have me about ready to pull my hair out. But in the end, after we’ve performed at half time on Friday nights at the football games, its all worth it<3
