So, summer is finally here (sorry I literally haven’t posted since October). Anyway, most people talk about how 7th Grade was one of the worst years of their lives… not for me! This year has actually been one of the my best school years (as of right now 5th is still the best) I got really good grades, did awesome at band stuff, got into NJHS, had an awesome year with my friends, so it’s only fair I have a post to honor what an awesome school year I had. So, here’s my 7th grade year in a nutshell…
- Band Life
I’ll start with talking about my year in band. At the beginning of the year, I was thrilled that I was in Concert Band. Less work, and easy music, right? Anyway, as the year went on it clicked with me. I HATED Concert Band. We played the same level music all year, my band was pretty much full of people who barely knew how to play their instruments (especially trombones and trumpets…yikes) and we never got to play any super exciting music. I decided around March that I was fed up with being Concert Band. I worked so hard to learn all 12 major scales for Scale Olympics (I became the only Diamond medalist in Concert Band!), and I practiced my audition music until my fingers felt like they were going to fall off. My hard work definitely payed off though. I was the top girl in all of Concert Band (which was awarded at the Spring Concert), and I will get to be a Honors Band flutist for the 2017-2018 school year! Band this year was a lot of fun (especially the trip to Kemah in April!) and I can’t wait to be in band again next year!
This year I did really, WELL (inside joke) in all my classes! I somehow managed to get straight A’s in every class including math (how I don’t know…). I was very excited to get accepted into the NJHS program at my school, and I think being able to participate in it will open a ton of exciting opportunities for next year! This year I was blessed to have some of the most amazing teachers and I’m really going to miss them. I hope 8th grade will be as good a year as 7th grade has been!
- Friends/Social Life
Ok, so I’m not a very popular person. Most of the time I’m pretty shy and quiet, but this year I’ve actually come out of my shell a bit. I’ve definitely started talking to more people, and I’ve grown out of a lot of my social awkwardness (which is a blessing). I’ve had an awesome year with all my friends and look forward to 8th grade which will hopefully bring even more opportunities to make friends (and hopefully become a teeny weeny bit more popular).
Seventh grade was a pretty awesome year. Most people talk about it being their worst, but I honestly can’t relate. I am excited for 8th grade and all the opportunities it will bring, but first… I’m gonna sit back and enjoy my summer!
