Below is an essay on "My First Day Of High School" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

On my first day entering high school, I felt like a little fish entering a big pond.   I was very inhibited, close-minded and lacking diligence. It was very intimidating starting high school because I had to find a way to adjust to the diversity all around me. Little did I know that my school’s diversity would help me develop an understanding of the perspectives of teens and people in general. Each year of high school I became more open minded as I experienced different situations with people every day.
  As the years went by, high school only became more challenging and a bit overwhelming.   In my junior year the work started piling up and the distractions grew. I struggled for a little while because I wanted to go out with my friends instead of doing my work. I was also very involved in extracurricular activities increasing the challenge. After I got my first report card I started changing immediately. What came to mind first were college and my future.   I knew I had to start applying myself more and focus on my schoolwork. Learning to balance having fun and doing my work was necessary if I wanted to get accepted into a good college. I made fewer trips to the mall and put my schoolwork first.
  In my senior year I am now using everything I have learned and built on throughout my high school experience.   I have become a critical thinker and my points of view on things have changed drastically. My maturity level has increased the most.   In my four years of high school I also became well rounded and became better in my time management. I can honestly say that high school has definitely helped me grow and has opened my eyes on a lot of things. High school has equipped me for college and I am now even more ready for a greater challenge.
