The thought of starting Middle School was summed up in one word for me: Terrifying. Towards the end of my fifth grade year, teachers began to focus on warning their classes of how 'hard' Middle School would be. How much harder classes would be, how hard it would be to get to all seven of your classes on time, how hard it would be to get to your locker and get what you needed out of it in only five minutes. Hard. And scary. And my word: Terrifying. On top of all this, at the end of my fifth grade year, the county I lived in decided to redraw its school zoning lines. And because I have horrible luck, I was now zoned for a school where none of my friends were zoned. Literally, out of a class of about 150 kids, I was the only student zoned for this Middle School. As if this transition wasn't going to be hard enough, right? Well, after several months of forging my way through this unknown territory, I picked up on the nuances of not only surviving Middle School, but ROCKING it. This blog was created to help kids like me-- who want a resource to guide them through this transition. That is what this blog is here to do!
