Seventh Grade Reflection

When I first got to school in august I expected it to be extremely hard. I thought that there would be tons of homework, and lots of new stuff. But soon that thought changed. It wasn’t so bad! Sure there was some decent amount of homework, and yeah there was some new stuff but overall it was all terrible. By October my school life was pretty good. But then I found out I had a B in science. I knew what I had to do to bring that to an A. I went in for lunch to really understand the lessons and finally I brought that B to a solid A.

In seventh grade I learned so much! I learned a LOT more vocabulary in English. We have these packets that would be due every Wednesday, and then on Thursday we would have a quiz on the new words. Usually there would be 4 at a time, and you would be tested on all the words at the end of the 4 packets. I also learned some new math skills. I learned about negative exponents and how to understand them. One other thing I learned is Spanish. I new a couple words at the beginning, but now I can say lots of words and sentences. I can even translate a whole paragraph!

As this year comes to an end, I can’t start to slack off. I have to keep my grades high. If I had to do this year over again, I would. I mean sure, it’s had its ups and downs, but over all this year hasn’t been completely awful. My advice for the incoming seventh graders is to not fall behind. For one thing it’s not fun to play catch up, and two you have yo do a lot to get back on track. So I suggest to stay on top of everything or life will be terrible.

Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl pretty much the greatest TV show in the universe! It is already over but I have it on DVD and I can’t stop watching it. It’s one of those show that just leaves wanting more. It always ends the episode on a cliffhanger so I just have to watch the next one.

My sister, Robyn and I used to always watch it together! It was what we called “sister bonding time.” We would try not to watch over 5 episodes a day because then I think we would be considered obsessed. After each episode we would write a little inference on what we thought would happen in the next episode.

Gossip Girl is about these six New York Upper east siders. It’s about all of them and there lives in high school. There names are Chuck (my favorite), Blair, Serena, Dan, Nate, and Jenny. Dan and Jenny are brother and sister and they are not as rich as all the others. One catch phrase in the show is, “We’re Humphrey’s!” This basically is saying that they aren’t as good as all the rest of the characters.

I like this show because it never gets boring. It always is exciting and interesting. I already finished all the six seasons and I really don’t know what to do with my life anymore. Maybe you can leave some of your favorite shows in the comments! I seriously suggest you go check out Gossip Girl it will most likely change your life.
