My time at Eagle Butte so far has been roughly what I expected. It has been less stressful as I am getting used to the homework and people. I still really enjoy Psychology, as it is a subject I actually want to learn. It’s an easy and laid back class, which I believe I strive under. You really just learn at your own pace without getting tests and homework every other day. I still like Info Pro, because it involved typing and working with computers. However, I find that it is quite boring. I’ve also met and became friends with many more people, although I have a hard time remembering people’s names. I don’t enjoy English. Social is good because it is fun but we are still learning.
My first few weeks at Eagle Butte High School have been stressful. It was a shock to actually have to study and do homework to succeed in school. Having to get up early to get on the bus and getting home at four has also, been difficult. I find it challenging to be in a school with this many people, as I came from Parkside Junior High School, which only had two Grade 9 classes, which had about twenty-two students in each class.
I enjoy being in a Psychology class, since Parkside didn’t have electives that were like normal classes and subjects that I enjoyed. I also enjoy Info Pro, as it includes lots of typing. Another thing I like is not having the same people in all of my classes. Every class has different people so you’re not stuck with the same people all day. I hope I’ll successfully go through my three years at Eagle Butte while also having fun.
