The pressure of junior year is the hardest. No matter if you are a junior in high school or if you are a junior in high school, it is usually your most important year of grades, extracurriculars and the 10,000 other things you are doing to be different. However, with the thousands of bad and stressful times there are some fun and relaxing times! Our journey through our junior year in high school has had its own ups and downs, so here is our story!

The Story of High School

In Georgia high schools

All that is done is studying

Students are always sad

The first day

The first day of school

Would rather watch Netflix and Chill

Or even just sleep

Club Fair

The flood of info

People shouting to join their club

All you do is run


Friends, you lose some

You gain some and that is life

In all this chaos

Stress Breaks

A special moment

We finally get a break

From all the school work.

Community Nights

Placebo Effect

Fake days without homework

So that tests pile up


Dressing up for the fun night

Dancing, screaming, laughing

We all let go

International Night

Full of screaming voices

Talent fills the atmosphere

Dance, Sing, Act, Play, Cheer

Standardized Tests

SAT, ACT, EOC, APs, Finals

The tests never seem to end

Stressing for college


Students are really sad

What did we do this semester

We all are gonna fail

AP Exams

Advance Placement

Physics, Calculus, Psych, Lang

The future is here


The hard times are here

Recommendation letters

SAT, Clubs, ACT, future

Four Quarters Will Always Be Better Than Ten Dimes, And I'm Not Talking About Spare Change

Quality over quantity any damn day.


"You would rather have four quarters than 10 dimes, 20 nickels, or 100 pennies," is a phrase that at first glance would seem to just be about money. But it actually contains a deeper meaning that could definitely serve as good advice when it comes to the friendships you have in your life.

As an ambivert, I have always found myself happier when I surrounded myself with a large group of friends. It gives you a sense of belonging, something that is a proven innate human desire. Having large groups can be fun, but they also equally have the chance of being toxic for you. There's no point in surrounding yourself with individuals if, at the end of the day, they don't make you happy. Often times you'll hang out with people just because you crave company, but not THEIR company. There is a very important distinction.

Don't let your loneliness or your desire for more friends allow you to be consumed into toxic friendships. Because I have been there and done that. Many times. It's not a fun experience. It took me time to learn, but I have learned the valuable lesson of less being more. When you eliminate extraneous beings from your life, you have more time to focus on your more important relationships and the most crucial one of all, the one you have with yourself.

I am very blessed to say that people that I am close to in my life genuinely care for me and my happiness because this was not always the case. It takes a lot of trial and error, and also greatly impacts your mental health, but finding the right friend group for you is definitely life-changing.

Choose your friends wisely, you don't want a wallet full of useless change.
