The school year has begun, marking the end of lazy summer days. After three months of carefree summer vacation, students are adjusting back to the demands of high school. During the summer, students do not tend to have a strict schedule.
“Some nights I would stay up until 2:00 a.m. watching Project Runway and wake up the next day around noon,” said freshman Cassidy Escobar. “Hardly anyone makes plans in advance during the summer because there’s no school day or school activities to work around.”
Now students are adjusting to the schedule that the school day requires.
“It’s a big change from having no schedule in the summer to having the same school schedule every day,” said senior Parker Kolpin. “Every day I wake up, go to school, come home, do homework, eat dinner, and go to bed. If my friends want to hang out, I have to plan ahead.”
Many students seem to be having a hard time adjusting to the demands of being back in school. Although the first week of classes appeared to be a big change for most, hopefully students will get back into the swing of things soon.
