"Don't Forget To Have Fun"

Location

Enjoy your four years of high school,

They said.

It will be the best four years of your life

 

High school is the time where you 

Find yourself

Join a club, go to dances

That two page rhetorical precis is still due tomorrow.

But don't forget to have fun.

 

High school is the time to

Build relationships

Make new friends, develop stong relationships with teachers

Here's a five page packet I expect completed by tomorrow.

But don't forget to have fun.

 

High school is the time to

Get involved

Try out for a sport, join the decathalon, stack up on community service

Study for the 200 point test that's tomorrow.

But don't forget to have fun.

 

High school is where you

Make Decisions

Write your personal statement, apply to college, 

Did you send your scores?

Did you meet this deadline?

Did you meet that deadline?

Are you applying to scholarships?

Did you do community service?

Did you join a sport or club?

Still, write a structured essay, study for the test,

Complete this worksheet, do problems 1-30...due tomorrow.

But don't forget to have fun.

 

Grade all these papers, input all these test scores,

Write these letter of recommendations, assign tomorrow's agenda,

Neglect your family, stay in your room all day and night,

Miss family events, stay home instead of taking your grandma to the airport,

and then ask yourself,

If you're having fun.

 

Enjoy your four years of high school,

They said.

It will be the best four years of your life.
