This was my first year my school and it is coming to an end. I have 3 days left of my junior year then exams. Junior year is considered to be one of the hardest years of high school. Junior year also sets up your college. I already took my SAT and did pretty well on it but i am still trying to increase my gpa so i will be able to get into more colleges and the scholarships will be better.
Next year is my senior year and i am not sure how i feel about that. It means less than a year from now i will have played my last varsity basketball game, had my last first day, decided what college I am going to and really become the person i am going to become in life. It should be an interesting year.
