Reviewing my years of high school

Evan Frazier, Sports Editor

After four years of test taking and placement tests, I can finally say I have done it. I will be graduating from high school. This article reviews each of my personal years of high school. I will be attending the University of Oregon after high school. 

Freshman year was nothing special. I met some new friends and participated in a season of cross country and track. Classes were relatively easy. When I first got to Tualatin, I thought the school was really nice. The biggest change was sitting in a class for an extra 45 minutes each period. Also having just four classes a day wasn’t too shabby. Overall, it was just another year of school.

Sophomore year was a lot tougher than I imagined it would be. I got used to the new class schedule that year, but I still had to learn where the classrooms were. I was actually really mad when they got rid of planners. One word to describe this year: Geometry. That class destroyed me. For most sophomores, they finish their second year of language arts. I finished Spanish 2 this year. After this year, I knew classes were going to be tough.

Junior year was when everything got flipped upside down. I joined newspaper as a staff writer, enjoying the time in that class. I became friends with all the editors, eventually falling in love with the class. I spent hours on hours grinding out stories at Paste Up for each issue. This year was definitely a lot of fun. Then spring came along. One thing led to another, and we were all at home for months doing school from home. I’m bummed out that I didn’t get to enjoy newspaper in person. 

Senior year was very fun. I applied to be the Sports Editor for the newspaper and actually got it! I was really pumped up for the next year and really thankful for the opportunity. I met even more people, despite being stuck at home. I actually enjoyed doing senior year from home, especially having some sports seasons. We also beat Tigard in football for the first time while I was in high school. I also applied for colleges this year, eventually getting accepted to the University of Oregon.

High school was a journey; yes, it was interrupted by COVID, but I still enjoyed it. I can’t wait for the next chapter of my life. ‘Sco, T-Wolves and peace out, Tualatin.
