Humans of SD – Alexis Alcala


“Coming into high school I learned that I had to take more responsibilities. The first day I got to school I was nervous because I couldn’t find any of my classes and I didn’t want to be late on the first day. My favorite part was when I became friends with a lot of new people and got to know them. My least favorite thing was taking finals after each semester. Sophomore year has been my least favorite year because I was struggling a lot in school and had other things going on in my life that made me slow down from doing all my work. I just sort of gave up and started having problems with friends. I am enjoying Junior year more than all my previous years because I’m getting to the point where I’m getting my stuff together. The only thing I’m not liking is that I’ve had a lot of tests to take which I hate a lot, but I’m pretty sure everyone else hates tests too. If there was anything I’d tell incoming freshmen, I’d say to participate more and get as many hours as you can because you don’t want to wait to the last minute. Oh, and also,  be careful who you trust because you realize who are your real friends! But just have fun as much as you can because high school is going by really fast, so enjoy I’m enjoying it while it lasts.” -Alexis Alcala, Junior
