First Week as a Freshman

First Week as a Freshman

Jordan Bivins

My first week of freshman year at Hamilton High School was interesting. Walking into the school as a student was startling. There were so many students driving themselves, grown up peers, and pupils that towered over me. The school itself is huge compared to my old junior high school. I was at a loss of words but I kept on walking up to the main entrance. It was weird to be sitting at a desk for two hours when I hadn’t been in person at school in more than seven months. Nonetheless, I made it through my first two classes perfectly fine. At lunch, kids from all around the school crowded into the cafeteria, this was a very alarming experience, lunch was also the first time all day that I took my mask off which was also very unsettling. After lunch, I made my commute to my last class. For being very nervous for the first day It went much better than expected. The second day, much like the first, was pretty easy, although I do have to say that being in the block schedule everyday gets to be pretty tiring. On my second day I had to walk from the N building to the E building which everyone said is a pretty long walk. I made it to class on time so I think that that commute being really hard is a stretch. For the topic of masks and safety I haven’t seen anyone not wearing one so that makes me feel safer. I’ve only ever known Hamilton with kids wearing masks and arrows in the hallways so I don’t know the difference. I’d say my first week at Hamilton High School was a success, and I’m excited to be a Husky.
